Silencer alignment fix ?

Sat Jan 07, 2017 11:49 am

Just acquired an 18 month old rifle at a very silly low price.
There is a possibility that the owner thought it was duff.
First groups were like wild womans sh**e.
By a proscess of elimination I found the silencer was clipping.
Tried it on another rifle , same story.
Looks like a HW but cant find any marking.
Anyway seems a shame to bin it and I would not pass it on while it's clipping.
If I had the face turned to remove a high spot would this work or is it likely to be the whole thread which is duff?

how much is it clipping
if its a small amount could you increase the exit hole size slightly.

Actually thats a good call. The clipping is vague to the eye but can be seen with a magnifying glass.
Is the exit diameter relevant to the functionality ?

I seem to recall that weihrauch moderators are calibre specific, so if it's a .22 and the mod is .177 it should still exit but won't be accurate. But as Eboswan says if it's the right calibre, just put a drill through it, won't be any noisier. Rog

Ta. Just bored it out with a 7.5 bit. Sounds OK , will test in the morning.
Rifle was a pain to get shooting right as I also encountered an extremely dirty barrel and the hammer / trigger unit full of heavy grease.
All easy fixes but not what you would expect from a relatively expensive rifle.
Glad to say it is now a tack driver.

Yes, they are rather nice guns, three guys who come to my club have them, had a go with one, very accurate, but pricy even second hand, I might have to start saving again, Rog
