You can’t compare length and effectiveness, design is the key to effectiveness.

My BSA R10 MK2’s came with full length shrouds that made them quite long. 

The shrouds have 1/2×20 threads so I added an HW ldc. Rig was quieter but too long.

I removed the shroud and found the barrel threaded, so I installed the HW ldc straight onto the barrel. Ended up shorter and quieter than with just the shroud, or with the shroud & ldc.

I had an ldc that was large & heavy, well made with inserts and material in it. Don’t know who made it, but barely reduced noise.

Then I tried a Decimeater and the difference was surprising. Decimeater worked great and was a touch smaller and a good bit lighter.

Design is the key.
