Hushpower Detachable moderator


Recommended Posts

Has any one tried the moderators from hushpower and fitted on an existing gun? I sent them an email and apparently I can fit one on me hatsan semi or me old pump 
Still at 180 quid not cheap. The reason I ask is I picked up a new duck perm and noise is an issue. So might sort some thing during the summer

Yes from what I gather noise wise the 20b is the best for noise suppression. But I just got rid of my single bore hush which I have had for ten years and never had need for hush power. I get rid and few weeks later I need one lol.
Cartridges were hard to source locally for it though as most shops just stock 12b and 410 in hushpower if you lucky. Plus I have the steel thing to think about. So would be ideal to just whack one on me either of me 12 gauges.

Sounds like it might be the way to go

The cheddite 24g and 28g cycle most of the time with the odd jam

The Gamebore Evo 28g won't cycle at all

The eley hushpower 32g cycle perfectly

The cheddite are marked as 21g but actually 24g. Available from Malmo guns who were very helpful

Yes. You send whichever chokes you like to the saddlery and gun room and they make them off into moderator ends. £180 for one choke modifying and the actual moderator. Then £60 for additional chokes. I had full and cylinder done. I got them so that I don’t need ear defenders whilst pigeon shooting so that I can enjoy the sound of the countryside and hear any magpie chatter.

My mate has one in 20 b on a hatsan semiauto .

But only has one choke to go with the mod .think its 3/4  .

Though its very quiet ..he uses any cart they all sound quiet enough .and at range there is no disernable sound difference between the loudest (at muzzle ) and the quietest .so he goes with the most effective  - as far as kills are concerned .

Keep an eye out for pellet clipping with that cylinder choke  .

Hi there I've just got a moderator for my hatsan escort with V3 chokes. It's excellent. I'm just trialing different subsonic cartridges.

Is it that quiet? I had a 410 on trial from a gun dealer a long time ago now and that had a similar size mod on it which did not make much reduction in noise. If it is that quiet I have a mate on here that will want one on his hatsan

Excuse the daft question. So I send them a choke and for want of a better word they weld it on the end of the choke so I can just screw it on and change it like a choke ? Also whats a v3 choke ?

Yes thats correct but obviously it jas to be an extended choke .a v3 is a hatsan  specific  choke .they did v1 v2 and are now on v3

True but would make a expensive tool

Not massivley.

Can pick up a armsan .410 auto from around  £550

Yup .just screw it off and store away.

Obviously  you can screw in any other normal mod and your gun is as it was before totally unmoderated . 

Best of both worlds .

Though its worth having a slip on cheek riser to lift the eye a bit for when using the mod .

The after market-sound moderators are not as quiet as the fully shrouded (and drilled) barrels as would be expected (I'd be interested to hear the difference between an after-market moderator and a bespoke one with the same cartridge. My aim is to lower the sound just enough to not require ear defenders. One thing that I have learned from shooting my moderated Adler/Stealth 410 is that subsonic cartridges make a huge difference. Some normal cartridges are also quiet but some are so load that you wouldn't think that it was moderated at all.

Yes that's absolutely right.The V3 choke is just the latest version of the choke which Hatsan supply with the Escort.

Ok I like it. I have one of them. Plus it would still fit in me cabinet if i could just unscrew it.

I only fit the moderator when I get to wherever I'm shooting as it won't fit in any gun slip with the moderator attached. Also I always replace the moderator with a standard flush choke whenever I remove the moderator and before I put the gun back in the cabinet so that I don't inadvertently end up shooting the gun without a choke and damaging the choke threads.
