    Ok as the title, is it worth it? I know the right one can look good, and as we all know if you think your rifle looks good you'll shoot better :p but is there any tangible difference with one or should I stick with a nice slim barrel weight/silencer?

    They look real blingy,and anything put on a barrel will drop the poi a bit.
    I'm not too sure but I think this is what a harmoniser does damps the barrel?

    Brakes and strippers work with the high pressure pulse from a PCP. this is why PCPs go off with a bang. The nature of a springer is totally different, brakes, strippers and silencers are not so important.

    Hi Garrick,

    Out to about 30/35 yards you probably won't see any difference, i think they make a difference after that, always get them fitted to my target guns.

    Cheers for the replies, its going on an 80 so may experiment a little, but think barrel weight might be the way to go as its free floating.
