Yes. All ERA®SILENCERs can be disassembled to facilitate cleaning.
Yes. An exchangeable threaded bushing ensures the ERA®SILENCER can be used on different rifles of the same or a smaller caliber with varying muzzle threads.
The term first round pop (FRP) refers to the first shot fired through a silencer that is often louder than any subsequent shots due to the oxygen inside the suppressor burning off.
A hunter usually fires only one round and, therefore, it is particularly important that a silencer has a very low first-round pop. Our model SOB3D eliminates the FRP due to the wire mesh and, thus, the lack of space inside the silencer! All other silencer models reduce the FRP greatly.
Yes. ERA®SILENCERs can be used on other rifles of the same or a smaller caliber. When an entire caliber group is being skipped, the suppression values diminish slightly. If two caliber groups are being skipped, suppression values are reduced even further. This may still be acceptable as long as no magnum calibers are being used.
In this case, the ERA®LOC quick release system is recommended. Each muzzle thread must be equipped with an ERA®LOC threaded bushing. Attaching the silencer to a different rifle can thus be carried out quickly and easily.
Yes. Condensed moisture inside the silencer combines with the combustion residue and forms an acid, which can lead to severe corrosion in the silencer and also in the rifle’s barrel. Therefore, the ERA®SILENCER should be removed from the weapon after each use - regardless of whether a shot has been fired or not. To fully dry it, place the silencer vertically on a heater or dry it with a hair dryer.
A cleaning should be conducted after max. 100 rounds or once a year. Instructions are provided with every silencer. You can also download these instructions under the “Service” menu.
A general statement cannot be made. Normal hunting use, as well as appropriate maintenance and care of the silencer will ensure that the mesh will last for many years.
