    Recommend to always remove your mod after shooting or storing for long periods to stop condensation between barrel and mod.

    No it almost certainly won't affect zero.
    leaving it on after shooting can cause corrosion to the bore though (something to do with corrosive gasses condensing in the mod).

    when mods first came out I left one on my old tikka for a year.
    BIG Mistake it took a wrench to get it off
    I was extremely lucky it came off without damage to the rifle
    Now I always take it off and clean threads wipe them with oily rag

    Agree. I only attach the moderator when I've arrived at where I'm going to be stalking. When I finish stalking, I take the moderator off. Regards JCS

    Yah, ditto, I always give the mod a SMALL squirt of wd40 into the muzzle end after taking it off if its had a shot through it as this will stop the corosive gasses from brewing away whilst its in the cabinet.
    Never leave the mod attached on the rifle when its not in use, it will destroy your muzzel owing to the corosive gssses and condensation that will leach forth.
