I’m based in South Oxfordshire and looking for a gunsmith to do the following work on a rifle:
1. Screwcut for moderator (doesn’t need to be proofed);
2. Fluting of rifle bolt;
3. Glass bedding the wooden stock.
Can anyone recommend a good gunsmith to do this? Any suggestions welcomed!
I'm starting this thread to obtain some information regarding the use of moderators and muzzle brakes. I have shot bolt action rifles with moderators and seen muzzle brakes in use but never used one myself.
Having looked into moderators for stalking rifles (approx .30 cal, non-magnum)...

Any 300 win mag users recommend a lightweight moderator?
Currently got and use an ASE SL7i, which is great but 602 grams on the end of a long barrel effects the balance.
Tried all sorts of rifle slings including back pack twin sling, but with the mod the rifle wants to keep pivoting.
I've just heard from a fellow hunter going to South Africa in May that he has been told that hunters currently arriving at J-berg airport with a moderator on their rifle are experiencing difficulties getting approval to take them through customs (April 2018). I've seen and heard nothing on this...
Selling as it's surplus to requirements.
Will accommodate up to .25 calibre rifles so that includes .243 and .22. Heard they're very effective on the .22-250. Threaded 1/2x20 UNF. It's the matt black finish.
Had roughly 200 shots through it, couple of small marks, always taken stalking with tape...
Any interest in a Steyr SSG04 in .308?

In excellent condition, wee bit of wear where the moderator has been added and removed...
I have been looking at Freyr & Devik moderators in Norway (same people who make the new Sauer Titanium Pro but with more choice of threads and calibres). Having e-mailed them, they are happy to send a mod for me but obviously to a registered firearm importer in the UK (not any standard...
I own a few moderators including one of the Original Quicksilver Titanium mods in .223 from when they were still being licensed in the UK and for the most part they all do a pretty reasonable job in terms of sound reduction.
I've never been super happy with what any of them do for rifle balance...

I bought a few years ago a tikka t3 .243 with an ASE, jetz mod stamped .30....but also has had 25-06 and .243 proof stamps.
I have had my variation approved for a .30-06 and have ordered a tikka t3x hunter screw cut, assuming the moderator screws on with no trouble...
Earlier this week a friend helped me zero a brand new Tikka T3x in .308 Win. On the end of the barrel was a new DPT moderator. I fired 57 shots. I took the mod off, followed the manufacturer's instructions and cleaned it in warm soapy water. There is some slight pitting on each of the sections...
Hi all, I've recently purchased a Steyr SBS Tactical as a stalking rifle and I am in the process of getting the barrel threaded for a moderator. The rifle was purchased quite cheaply and I am planning to put on a Schmidt and Bender 8x56 scope.
So far I have narrowed moderator choice down to...
