Picking the right silencer can be difficult. Mostly because there are many determinants to finding the best silencer for the hunting types you like - and, of course, your demands. Which is the main purpose? Does length and weight matter? Below, we try to answer the most common questions for you to find the right silencer.
Choosing silencer is individual and can be heard because of that. It might feel like walking in a jungle; it’s snarky, uneven, and hard to find the right path.
Before buying a silencer there are a few things to consider. Firstly, what’s the silencer's purpose? Which hunting forms do you enjoy? Are you looking for only noise reduction, or do you also want a silencer that reduces recoil och barrel flip? Also, you have to consider what size and weight feel best for you. A silencer can affect your whole equipment, dependent on manufacturer and model. If you’re a dog handler, and move a lot, you probably want a lightweight and smooth silencer. Besides, you have to consider how much sound reduction you want.
Above this, you need to consider what kind of hunting the silencer will be used for. What do you like the most? Do you want to stick to one silencer or desire a variety for different hunting forms and circumstances?
Lastly, you have to find a silencer that matches your weapon. What caliber and thread is necessary? Below, we give our recommendations for the most commonly used calibers, and a deepened description of three ordinary hunting forms.
Driven hunts are perhaps the most intense hunting experience out there. A line of beaters (most often accompanied by dogs) drive the game out and push them toward a chain of waiting hunters.When an area is driven in such a proper way, it is natural for many different game species to be seen in these activities. Wild boar is without a doubt at the heart of driven hunting, but on most driven hunts it is also possible to see other games, like fallow deers, red deers, roe deers, foxes, pheasants, and perhaps mouflon and sika stag all depending on what the individual district can offer.Whether you are a beater or a hunter, certain features of your equipment are preferable for driven hunts. We think it is important to choose a silencer and its features based on the type of hunting.For driven hunts, we think and recommend silencers that allow for quick movements for running game, where flexibility and/or "easy-to-carry" features go hand in hand with quick movements.A Stalon silencer for quick movements is usually lightweight and has a short extension of the weapon. these two features conflict with the term: Maximum noise reduction, you often need to sacrifice some noise reduction to get the best possible silencer for driven hunts (unless you choose the one with maximum noise reduction).
Spot and stalk/stalking hunting are one of the most demanding, yet peaceful form of hunting. The method is best performed in open or semi-open landscapes, where a hunter can locate the game at a distance before stalking into an effective distance without getting attention from the animal.Spot-and-stalk/stalking method gives you a number of tactical and strategic advantages over the less disciplined approach of just wandering around with a gun in hopes of driving something up. Spot-and-stalk/stalking hunting lets you cover ground with your eyes instead of your feet, sometimes more ground in a glance than you would be able to cover with your feet.Spot-and-stalk/stalking is often used when hunting roe deer, fallow deer, red deer, mouflon, sika stag, and many other games depending on location and the local selection of game.
The recommended silencer for successfully Spot-and Stalk/stalking will vary depending on how you plan to conduct the hunt. Typically, a hunter will spend many hours stalking for just a few seconds of opportunity at a clean shot. The silencer needs to help conduct those hours while maximizing efficiency in those few moments. A silencer with the best reduction of physical impacts, such as recoil and barrel flip, and noise reduction are important features for a potentially long-range shot and possibly a follow-up shot. To have these benefits one will have to equip the weapon with any of the longer/larger Stalon silencers. Noise reduction and recoil reduction often go hand in hand with each other.
Allround hunting is a good mix of the different methods of hunting, where quick movements, flexibility, stable shooting, and good follow-up shot possibilities are equally important or interesting for the hunter. the intensity of the driven hunt and the demanding, yet peaceful moments of the spot-and-stalk/stalking hunts are examples of combinations of allround hunting.Allround hunting is what most hunters do if they are inveterate hunters, often with equipment and gear for each of the individual hunting disciplines.Allround hunting puts the hunter in a position to choose equipment based on the method of hunting, while some equipment just works well for all occasions.
For allround hunting, and if the hunter wants to stick with just one Stalon silencer, the different features of the silencers have to be carefully weighted in when choosing model.Some features just have to be "sacrificed" for the advantage of something the hunter think is more important for its style of hunting.It is, without doubt, the toughest to choose a model for allround hunting, unless the hunter chooses one for each method or hunting style.
Stalon X-series contains four unique models with different lengths, weights, and performances. All models are made with a telescopic design, to generate a better balance of the silencer and the weapon it is installed on.
Stalon VICTOR-series contains two unique models with varying lengths, weights, and performances. Both models are designed with a telescopic construction to initiate a better balance of the silencer and weapon.
Stalon RF is developed to offer an excellent reducing effect to all rimfire cartridges. Regardless id Stalon RF is used with a slow caliber with a small amount of gunpowder, or a fast and hot rimfire magnum caliber, the silencer will reduce almost the same amount of noise.
