A Brugger and Thomet compact stalking moderator. It would have been here quicker but they needed to check with B&T that its fine for .311 bullets. I now have 3 rifles to take in for moderating from 7 x 57 to 7.65 x 53 with a 7.62 x 39 in there. one mod fits all 3.
Its allegedly good for 10 000 rounds before cleaning and although its not user strippable it goes back for a service then.
Lightweight, yes especially when compared to a T8 or similar, compact definitely and price wise even without my dealer discount its very competitive. IMG-20130829-00709.jpg
It also comes with a gay little webbing pouch!

Its not very big, I only have little hands

A variation is required and these now are serial numbered sadly but no problem for me!

Do these count as a slot on your ticket? What do you have in 7.62 x 39? options in uk look quite limited to cz527 and bugger all else. Definitely a nice looking bit of kit!

Yes but not a slot, you ask for the variation for a mod, it shouldn't take up an unused slot for a rifle. I have a CZ527, its a good rifle but suffers as the bullet is almost as fat as its long. You cant buy deer legal soft point and I've avoided modding it as I don't want to risk reducing the MV at all. My hand loads are deer legal but having done some tests with a Grendel built on a CZ527 we found that the MV increases slightly when a mod is fitted.
I will check tomorrow but I think I can get rifles screw cut for around £50 plus vat or less if I take in 3 at a time. If they are any dearer a fellow dealer with a lathe will do it for me.
One of the drivers for the mod was the Parker Hale 7x57 I restored with a crappy ringed muzzle. I think it will need to lose the foresight and about 4 or 5 inches of barrel to get to a clean bit. The groups it was throwing were easily over 6 inches at best.
If it doesn't solve it I will rebarrel into a 7.62 x 55 wild cat.

Looks nice.

Before I got to your comment on the pouch, I thought 'that is as gay as satan'.

I think the pouch needs to be on ticket too. :)
It will only be used to transport it I promise.

I saw something on Sky the other day showing bobblehatted wanderers going out at night wearing luminous vests to stop the nasty men killing badgers.

I was thinking quietley.

Well if the pointyheads do their job the lot will be locked up for breaching the injunction! Be safer that way!

Looks a lot more practical than a T8 - go on, whats one of them retail at then?
Should be 350 but I'll do them for 330 or less with part ex!
As your old mod won't have a ser no its an easy swap I would think.
