    over barrel suppressors

    hi guys
    odd question to those that have one
    do you get gas coming back between the barrel and suppressor???
    mine seems to leak resulting in the lens of scope needing a clean after 5 shots

    just wondering if this is normal or not

    cheers

    Sounds like your suppressor may be an older one with out a barrel isolator tube. If its got a barrel isolator tube there is something wrong and you need to get it checked out by the manufacturer.

    Either way you shouldn't be getting "leakage" from it.

    Does it have an isolater tube ?

    Looks like a old model HRE supressor, or a copy of one.

    For that kind of money you're expect it to be made of gold or something.
    A suppressor that expensive should not be giving you any issues at all like that. Go get it replaced.

    I have a 338 Hardy can like that with a bulge at the back - fired next to no rounds from guy I brought the gun from, and doubt if I will fire it myself
