Re: Let's see your Varmit rifles !

sweet looking rigs!

So I take it that noise suppressers are mandatory in New Zealand?

Must add significantly to the cost.

Thanks.

No, supressors are not mandatory over here, but I really prefer to use them on my varmint rigs, and other heavy rifles (where weight is not an issue). So much nicer to shoot and makes it easier to spot your shots (much the same as using a brake) and the big benefit is that it is quiet, and animals don't all clear out at the first shot. Its quite funny watching a group of rabbits wondering why their mate next to them has just exploded! and then proceeding to shoot the rest of them without the others having much of a clue what is going on. Also good when you are shooting with a spotter as you don't need to wear earmuffs/plugs.

Good supressors are around $500 NZD fitted, so about $350USD. Money well spent I think..

As you probably know, owning a supressor hear in the US is like owning a full auto.... it is a Class III item and you have to pay a tax & etc......

Yes, seems a little odd I think. Here you need to jump through hoops if you want to own something like an AR15 (or similar "military style" semi auto's), and handguns, well that's even more restrictive... but supressors aren't a problem...

Here's my old Rem 788 with a factory medium contour barrell chambered for .222 rem. Scope is a Monarch 4x16 with ballistic mil-dot.
