Thread: Best rimfire mod?

    Best rimfire mod?

    Just wondering what you guys think is the most efficient rimfire mod. I have always just used the trusty SAK's as they are cheap, easy to clean and pretty effective. Just waiting on a 1 for 1 variation for a new 17 HMR, and feel like trying something different (if noticeably quieter). Difference is probably minimal with a .17 because of the sonic crack, but I am unfortunately a sucker for new kit, and don't feel like taking the 'impartial' advice of RFD's.

    L.E.I. 17 mod, I tried all the popular ones and ended up with the this, smallest and quietest.

    an OLD steel parker hale mod was better on my sako 17 than the a-tec mod, as crud build up in the mod was so bad with the 17 ! a mod that can be cleaned is a good way to go

    MAE Mini T available from JMS arms is the best I've used/heard. Dave Mercers DM80 is also equally good though a little bulkier. LEI is also good!

    These mods are almost centrefire money, how much of a sound reduction do they offer?

    Ask 6 people and get 7 answers to this one, or so I found!

    I have a Scirroco and an old steel Parker Hale. The scirroco is marginally quieter, however, after several hundred rounds the baffles inside are cut from the power of the round. You are able to buy more of the stainless steel baffles and replace the softer ones, thus stopping this, the mod itself is only about 30, so you could have 4 of these over the life of a rifle for some of the more expensive ones. Or change the baffles for a tenner and have a good mod for 40. Scirrocos get a slating in some places, but its quiter and less bulkier than a mates SAK.

    The PH one is good, easily cleaned and strong enough to resist the cutting of the round - but it is not as quiet.
