    does Daystate Reflex AirStream Silencer fit FX Verminator?

    As the title says.

    the AirStream Reflex seems quite interesting as it stick out just 10cm.

    I think it probably will

    Daystate use LW barrels as well, so the barrel OD should be ok, you'll have to 'do the maths' on how far it reflexes back though.

    I've a Daystate Airstream MK3 (I think) here in .177 & its very good.

    The fact that Daystate and FX use Walther barrels is irrelevant I'm afraid.

    Daystate rifles and FX Verminators both have shrouded barrels, so it's the diameter of the shroud that's important.

    A Veminator doesn't have a shrouded barrel, does it? Last one I saw didn't.

    As for fit, it also depends how far it comes back over the barrel, the cylinder may get in the way.

    Graham, whilst it is possible to buy some FX guns with a sleeved LW barrel, the vast majority use the standard LW barrels (2 different sizes offered). The Verminator uses the standard barrel.

    i think you can retro fit them i think you have to get an oring that is the right size to go over the barrel and prevent any air coming out. as others have said you may want to look at the sizes to make sure one would fit.

    That's right. Can anyone who has a Vemri please tell me the length between the end of the front tube to the front end of the barrel ? TA

    you'll be lucky if they did as my understanding is that they are caliber and Daystate model specific.

    This is all much too messy for me,

    Gentlemen, sort it out amongst yourselves.

    Cut and pasted off BAR's website.

    The Lothar Walther match grade shrouded barrel also has a half-inch male thread,
    onto which you can fit your own choice of quality silencer to take this rifle into the super-quiet league.

    some clarity

    Hi, I believe the mk1 verminator (or gladiator - big brother) do not have shrouded barrels. The mk2 does though.
    I own a gladiator and mk 1 verminator.

    Early mk1 verminators did have a brass adapter to 1/2 inch UNC male for suppressors but my mk1 is circa 2011 and has a smooth-twist barrel (only partial rifling) and does not have the brass figment. What it does have is 2 inches of extra barrel length with a capping piece to cover the manufacturing marks from making the smooth twist, which is also directly threaded for 1/2 inch UNC male. I believe this is the same barrel that lurks inside the mk2 shroud.

    When I bought it second hand I was concerned that the barrel looked wrong compared to a friends earlier mk1 so I contacted the fx importer and was told the above.

    So early mk1s probably don't have enough barrel past the cylinder to accommodate an airstream but later ones I think do, which would be nice so as to offset the new longer barrel.

    Personally I came on here to find a custom reflex moderator on a recommendation from someone at my local range...

    I hope the above info helps.
