I recently purchased a Silent Hunter suppressor for my Howa .243 Winchester from Henk Viljoen in Bloemfontein who has been manufacturing suppressors for the last couple of years. So many people have been praising his products that I had to order one from him to see what the fuss is about.
I was indeed pleasantly surprised with the results of the suppressor as there was a dramatic reduction in the sound and the recoil of the rifle. It is very compact (only 38mm x 180mm) and weighs about 500 grams, which makes it one of the most compact but not the lightest steel suppressors available.
I can honestly recommend Silent Hunter suppressors to anyone in the market for a good quality suppressor for hunting purposes. His prices are also very competitive and his products are rated amongst the very best.
I tested the point of impact before and after fitting the Silent Hunter suppressor at 100 meters and there was almost no difference in the POI. These results will be different from rifle to rifle and not everyone might experience the same results as I did.
Here is a short video to demonstrate the difference in sound before and after the suppressor was fitted:
