Check out the awesome capabilities of rifle silencers, and some pretty sweet guns, in this video.
Rifle silencers are usually portrayed in movies and on TV as being capable of completely eliminating the noise of shots being fired from a weapon. However, that complete silencing of shot report is not how rifle silencers really operate.
Despite not being able to completely eliminate weapon report, rifle silencers do offer substantial reductions in both noise and recoil for a variety of rifles in different calibers. Silencerco is one of the industry leaders in rifle silencers and their Harvester and Harvester Big Bore models are some of the best around. These silencers have shown in tests to provide recoil reductions of between 20 and 50 percent in cartridges up to .338 Lapua Magnum, as well as offering great noise reduction. See for yourself in the video below.
