Silencers & Adaptors
Silencers aren’t just for hunting use. All precharged pneumatic airguns are more enjoyable to shoot when fitted with a properly designed silencer and reducing the muzzle noise of your airgun is always a good idea, especially for those who enjoy back garden fun-gun sessions. Remember too, that a silencer fitted to a break-barrel rifle can act as a cocking aid. So, no matter what type of shooting you do, a silencer is well worth considering. BSA silencers are made specifically to complement our range of rifles and each model is designed to provide years of maintenance-free use. Hi-tech on the inside, smooth and stylish on the outside, our silencers are sound investments for shooters of all kinds.
The SILENTIUM is BSA’s latest and most technologically advanced noise reduction system to date. Integrated into the muzzle of each rifles barrel SILENTIUM allows the pellet to pass freely whilst effectively reducing the majority of noise expansion. This clever new design dissipates significantly more sound than ever before through its internal air chambers thus suppressing noise expansion up to 82% when compared to standard muzzle report.
New VC Silencer
The only airgun silencer you will ever need. This latest-generation silencer actually allows the shooter to match its internal specification to suit the calibre of the rifle. A supplied Allen key permits the removal of the end of the silencer, so that different size restrictors can be fitted, so increasing or decreasing the muzzle aperture according to calibre to maximise the reduction in noise-energy as the pellet leaves the moderator. This ‘variable choke’ facility turns a silencer into one of the most useful hunting accessories of all time.
The BSA VC Silencer is supplied with 2- interchangeable muzzle restrictors that should be matched to the calibre of the airgun it is to be fitted to. The black restrictor must be fitted to .177 (4.5mm) calibre airguns. The white restrictor must be fitted to .22 (5.5mm) calibre airguns. The silencer is supplied with the white restrictor pre-fitted. Please note both restrictors have oversize holes to allow for barrels that have non – concentric bores. If the silencer is to be used on .25 (6.35mm) calibre airguns, no restrictors are fitted. Access to the restrictor is gained by removing the restrictor screw from the Silencer end cap using the 8mm Allen key provided.
NOTE: Fitting the silencer to your airgun may change the pellet point of impact – shoot a test group and re-zero the sights if necessary.
This stylish, discreet accessory has two main functions, both of which it carries out extremely well. First, it provides a neat finish to the rifle’s barrel and protects the precision crowning of the muzzle and the threads from knocks and similar damage. Secondly, the multi-port section of the Muzzle Brake allows air to vent to atmosphere while the pellet exits in reduced turbulence.
