The NEW BSA - VC 1/2 UNF 22 OR 177 CAL. To Fit R-10 (The R-10 version is the same as the normal VC but machined to the profile of the R-10 barrel and looks better)
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 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.
