Thread: T8 or Wildcat

  1. #1

    T8 or Wildcat

    Looking for a moderator for my rifle just now. Was always set on getting a T8 Reflex but the Wildcat Predator keeps popping up. Any recommendations would be most helpful!!

    Cheers,

    Uillie

    You won't go wrong with a Wildcat, I have 2 and would never go onto a single unit moderator. You be very surprised how much Kak you get in a moderator, stripping the wildcat down will be an eye opener.

    I heard lot's of negative reports of wildcats throwing fliers just after I had ordered mine. Needn't have worried. had mine three years, and never had a problem. Never owned a Reflex, so can't say either way.

    I have a T8 and it is 18 months old and as yet is fine. I would, if buying new, buy a stainless steel one. Border Barrels are now marketing a stainless replacement for the T8 called the MYM but it is 260/ish, but has passed the Forestry Commission Noise Test, unlike most of the others being marketed. http://www.border-barrels.com/sound_moderators.html

    In the sporting rifle noise reduction tests, there was only about 3 decibels between the top 10 mods on offer at that time.

    There was a lot of bad press at the time Mr Banner produced the Wildcat, but it seems to have settled down somewhat now. My mate Gary has one and likes it.

    How about the new one offered By Jager, that's modular too i believe. I have just looked on their site and can find no info on it, but i don't think i dreamed reading about it

    I have a P8 and it's a good mod. The only thing I don't like about it is the size (although it's the same as the T8). Take a look at the Ase Utra Northstar, it's a lot smaller and the mods are very well made.

    Also have a look at the ASE JetZ. Simple well made and very effective.

    Our ranage of mods do exist...honest!

    Sorry about the website, a new one is being built so our new stuff will be on there soon, just takes an age to get it sorted.

    I would vote for the north star a very good mod and it is as small as i have seen the cost around 190 and a life time guarantee. James my mate went to get one of your mods from gfs mate and after waiting 2 months decided to go with the north star got it by return of post.



    I will post a new picture up of the mod coated with duracoat if i ever shoot another deer

    You must of asked for something different because my mods are always on the shelf, not only that they only take a few weeks to produce a 100 Dave.
