Re: AI awp moderator
Jeza, you tend to find that accuracy improves slightly with a properly fitted moderator. wether its the moderator acting on the barrel, or just the fact that the rifle is quieter and more comfortable to shoot is open for discussion, but a moderator is a good idea. It is now under health and safety a required item if shooting is involved in your job. all the FC Rangers are getting mods fitted and i guess the military will eventualy go this way to, also the police.
The Reflex is the best of the bunch that where tested by the commission, it has its limitations, but it works well. Have a competent gunsmith thread your barrel and fit the moderator. Border Barrels will do it for you i would think. Just threading your barrel wioll not harm the accuracy any.
You might notice a change in point of impact from a non threaded barrel to a threaded barrel with thread cap, but it will be minimal. make sure the thread cap is tight. you will notice a change of impact between mod fitted and not fitted, due to the effect on the harmonics of the barrel.you can note the difference and adjust for it quite simply.
