    Northstar Moderator.

    Finally got my Tikka M595 back after being screwcut, and have put a Northstar on it. Never had a moderator before, so any advice on the cleaning regime would be appreciated. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but hope it will make a big difference...7mm-08 isn't as fierce as some, but there was quite a bit of muzzle flip and a fair old bang!

    I have a Northstar, they come with cleaning instructions along the line of, shake out bits, spray with WD40 job done!

    As above but I use Napier VP90 instead of WD40.

    Thanks, gents. Didn't get any instructions wth mine, but was told to suirt with WD40 after every 50 rounds....which could be upto 6 months for me. Does the oily residue tend to cause the first few shots to be flyers?

    Have'nt squirted mine with anything for ages maybe I'll give it a birthday treat and squirt some VP90 into it.

    I don't get flyers, but unless I dry it really well after squirting I get a cloud of blue/grey smoke.

    So I squirt and shake well with WD40, shake out most of liquid then dry on a (warm) radiator overnight.

    Perhaps I'm overdoing the WD40

    Does anyone know where I can get a neoprene sleeve for a Northstar? The ones I've seen are all too small, so it might have to be a bit of inner tube if all else fails.

    Would the T8 neoprene sleeve not fit it? I thought the Northstar was smaller than the T8?

    They are very stretchy.
