He has recently sent it to Hardys to have fitted to his new Tikka T3 Varmint 260 and Savage 12 .204. When they went to fit they found the iso tube was too small to fit over the heavy barrels. No worries they offered him a $200 trade in on a new suppressor. They then found their new ones wouldn't fit over the stupidly fat Savage barrel. Sheesh its only a 204 how much metal do you need, any way bugger. Then they came back and said ok well will make a one off custom suppressor to fit over the over weight barrel. Not bad service in my view. Go you good buggers.

    Unfortunately that is the exact opposite of my experience. But good to see he treats some customers well. My Hardy suppressor was leaving soot on the outside of the barrel. It was purchased with a rifle and both were not new. I did not ask or expect him to fix it under warranty, I asked what I should do to stop it and whether I should send it to him to check. (Prepared to pay for the repair) His response was that "His products cannot leak so it wont be the suppressor leaking...." I checked. There is only one hole in my barrel and that is the one that is supposed to be there, so I am pretty certain the barrel is not causing the soot on the outside.....I will be buying another couple suppressors, one for that rifle and one for another one. Neither will be Hardy's. At least one will be a Gunworks.....I know their service is tops and have dealt with them frequently because of their service.

    Pretty rich. I had the exact problem and they fixed the leak. The can was sent back via one of his better customers at the time, so that may explain the good service.

    They went through a patch of many cans having leaks and I seem to recall that the suspect was the anaerobic adhesive not setting in the (possibly excessive) thread gaps.

    Thats pretty much exactly what is happening except mine appears to have a bit of swarf in there too. I found a retailer with one of his cans sectionalised and now that I see how it is assembled I can see precisely where the issue is, so I may buy another can or I may try fix this one. ( or fix, fail, then replace if it goes badly....)

    Yep heard that one before straight from the horse's mouth, amongst a few similar responses to other products that wouldn't "do what they said on the box".

    Won't ever happen to me again though, the last one cost me way to much......

    I guess I can take solace in the fact that I'm not the only one in this country or internationally that has found themselves in the same situation
