    New Hardy suppressors

    Talking to a guy who was at the last Sika show he said Dan Hardy made mention of a new suppressor he was getting patented. Rang his workshop today but the guy on the phone was a bit vague on it. He said it was lighter and shorter and also quieter. Doesn't seem like his website mentions it as the old specs still show up.

    Anyone know much about these?

    worthless if they are anything like his others when he's trying to save weight by thinning the tube down to paper thickness
    If its guns, tits or tyres it's going to cost you lots of money

    There was a gun for sale on Tard Me the other day ( can't find it now ) & the guy selling it mentioned it was fitted with a new generation HRE light weight supressor, could just be salesman BS though

    I know he made a LW version for one of Duleys light weight rifles a couple of issues back
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    Well considering the only issue I've seen was on a Gunworks one and three people I know who shoot DH ones without a problem I'm still confused. Is everyone just jumping on the bandwagon against Hardy? Are there still issues, anyone got photos or first hand accounts?

    I have heard reliable accounts of failures, but never owned a Dan Can. Dan has replaced all that I know of though...

    I've heard plenty of accounts of failures from almost every suppressor maker in NZ, and I've had one myself with an Australian suppressor, for full disclosure
