Good day all, I'm considering going down the FAC air route and I'd be interested to know which sound moderators members with FAC air rifles would recommend. To be a bit more specific, my chosen calibre would be either .22 or .25 and the barrel would be screw-cut for a silencer. I would expect to be shooting at around 30ftlbs with a .22. In some ways I like the idea of using a barrel shroud, but I'm concerned about possible instability and lack of concentricity with the bore. I'm old-school and I generally prefer items that are user serviceable, and for which replacement parts are available. I look forward to hearing from experienced FAC air users. Chris
I finished work early today, so popped down to one of the farms for a drive/walkabout. I took the FAC Airwolf as that's the one that is bringing home the pigeons at the moment. The lads were drilling some rape and I could have had a fantastic shoot if seagulls were on the menu I went for a wander through the woods and heard the cawing of a couple of crows. One pitched into the top of an oak pretty much 60 yards away. Whilst I had a bit of an advantage with the canopy, I also had confidence that the Airwolf would take it out easily at that distance Freehand shot, click on the electronic trigger and the Bis Mag slammed into it, dropping it stone dead It seemed an age falling through the trees to the floor below. I took a stroll up through the higher side of this wood as there's a belt of trees next to a field of stubble. I felt sure there would be a pigeon or two up in the trees. Sure enough a stealthy approach gave another opportunity and the first pigeon was in the bag Having had the required amount of exercise I drove round the stubble and added another 5 pigeons to the bag. The end result. There's a super little pub 100yards from the farm and as it was 5.30, I thought......,,,,it just has to be done Life is what you make it
