Gun is loud
« on: November 06, 2020, 10:47:12 AM »
Just received a xs60c from Mike over at Flying Dragon and boy that puppy is loud. Has anyone tried a moderator on one? The od of the barrel measures 9/16 so I don't think that my tko that is on my 2240 would fit it.

Jim, While mine is still wearing it's original "muzzle brake / front sight" I have seen them here with moderators on them.
The only advice I can give is... Being  an Asian air gun, you may want to confirm it isn't 14mm.
We're all in the same boat, why're you trying to make holes?

I purchased a moderator from Flying Dragon when I got mine.  The moderator that Mike sells is the same plastic "SilenceAir" can that comes stock on several Umarex guns.  Like my Ruger Impact Max.  I tested my gun without the moderator first.  Then I installed it.  although Mike claims that the moderator doesn't do much I beg to differ.  It makes a substantial reduction to the sound!  ;D
The loudest part of the report is the sound of the hammer striking.  The FDAR moderator is a slip on.  I put a little hairspray on the tube before I slipped the moderator on and so far no problems.

On a completely different air rifle.... I am totally impressed with a Donny FL Tanto.  ;)

I ain't recommending the FDAR compensator.  It works, but I bet Geo could do you something better, cheaper.  But yeah, a compensator is a needed accessory for this gun.  Makes it as long as a magnum springer though!

Depends on your environment.,, I have no need for any "Hushing Device" on an air rifle... or a 30-06 for that matter where I am. Generalizations like that are not for everyone... right?

My XS60-c is perfectly quiet enough in it's stock form for "early Sunday morning" shooting when everyone else is still asleep... but they are 1/4 mile away or more.

Seems to me I mentioned early on it wasn't "Back Yard Friendly".... But I got a BIG back yard!  ;)

A moderator to me is for a gun I travel off my property to do some stealth hunting.

I have a TKO on my XS60c.  Work great.  Need the one that fits the 14mm barrel:

I agree in principle.  I haven't been an enthusiast for moderators until recently.  I have two guns with rudimentary moderators that are reasonably effective.  Just a week ago I discovered the advantage that a really quiet air gun has.  I shot four squirrels on an afternoon when I would normally expect to shoot two.  I'm certain it's because the moderated gun doesn't spook every squirrel on the 3 acres I was hunting.  I was "stealth hunting" in a neighborhood of two to five acre lots so I appreciated it for that reason as well.

Good point Carter, I didn't consider spooking the "next" quarry.
