Reply To: Incredible classic HW98 springer!
No, it does not quiet the gun. It cuts down on vibration and steadies the barrel on firing. I have 18 great quality springers. This one rates in the top 3. With the tx 200, LGU. The LGU is the easiest to shoot well. It is very forgiving. The HW98 is the lightest and easiest to load but you have to be very consistent with your hold. Takes 400 or so shots to notice reduction in vibration and things smoothing out and finding your groove. Shoots well from sticks. The LGU shot great out of the box. Literally no break in period.
