    Status guns suppressors

    Mate just showed me his, carbon fibre, looks good, he reckons it's quieter than the gunworks one. 412 grams, for a centre fire seems quite nice, $500. Any experiance with them anyone?
    Also heard the Hardy ones are supposed to be very good. Opinions?
    Machete don't text!

    I have a Hardy can on my 7/08.

    Weighs around 340grams and I can't fault it in any way. Combined with a limbsaver and recoil is non-existent. There has been multiple occasions where it has allowed me either a follow up shot - or to shoot another animal in the group.

    I have a
    240 grams S&L on my 22 Hornet - 25dB
    280 gram A-tec CTM4 on my 6,5 -27dB (my hunting suppressor)
    400 gram A-tec Maxim titanium -32dB (my range suppressor)
    This is all good values, -32dB is very good.

    I have also seen the Hausken Mini 223 suppressor, 150 grams but only -20'ish dB. I'd carry another 100 grams for the extra dB.

    The prob we have over here is everyone going lighter and lighter to the point of failure, and not backing up or/and starting again

    Seems like any hillbilly thinks he can make a suppressor

    We had that a couple of years ago, seems like they solved it now.
    But then again, a successful design makes you a millionaire in Norway so I reckon that motivates a little research.

    Out of interest what are the supps worth in Norway?
    I'd take a proven light can anyday instead of a potential handgrenade

    A-tec CMM-4 are 250-280 pounds in England. Noone in England will export one though.


    Roedale Delta is 230 Euros or something after you take off VAT, and a copy of A-tec CMM-4, slightly lighter though. Mine has like 400-500 rds through it now with no ill effects. Roedales customer service is "hahaha" at best though


    ie "around" $500NZ for either option


    Edit: Beaten like a Swedish person
