    Here in UK, not only are there occasions where a moderator is recommended, there are also places and situations where they are compulsory - such as night-shooting.

    The only reason the shooter is wearing hearing protection is be there are others there shooting unsuppressed.

    How many different firearms had to be frankenstein-ed to make this:

    "MkIII* Lee-Enfield rifle
    ...modifying the receiver,
    ...altering the bolt/bolthead, replacing the barrel with a modified
    Thompson submachine gun barrel,
    and using modified magazines from the M1911 pistol."

    very cool but I can't help but notice the amount of work that went into it, when there are off the shelf products that would nearly duplicate the results with much less work.

    Not a lot of "off the shelf" products to fit this role in 1943........ De Lisle carbine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Also it was designed in the OP's country. Seems pretty cool to me.

    Used to work for an outfit that reproduced De Lisle carbines. They are every bit as cool as they seem.

    I have seen a colt 1911 carbine version that was created previously to WWII, or you could just get a Thompson in semi auto.

    those are "off the shelf"

    Even this replication costs almost $4000 here in UK, so you have to be pretty serious about wanting one - it sure as hell isn't your average plinker, even for the millionaire guy who owns this one.

    However, as I must have mentioned before, sound moderators are HUGE business here in UK and Yoorup. Small countries have a lot of noise abatement laws, and there are places where cattle are pretty much part of the local scene and the last thing you need is a herd of spooked Herefords thundering in your direction. Surprisingly, there are also a large number of woodland estates in the part of England that we live in, with deer management problems forced on us by the bambi-huggers. The UK as an entity currently has an over-population of deer of around 350,000, so deer culling is high on the priority of game management hereabouts. In the 'three counties' police authority in which we live about in the middle, you can't go large game shooting of ANY species of deer - muntjac up - without a moderator on your rifle. That's roughly 2000 shooters.....yup UK sure is packed in. We don't use any kind of a tag system here, but rely on the management skills and experience of the estate wardens/managers to advise us of the numbers to take. I'm sure that at least some of you will be familair with the UK on-line countryside site - Fieldsport Channel - that will give you a good idea of what goes on here, where shooting sports of one kind or another put almost $5 Billion into the annual budget.

    Sadly, Mr Morgan is as welcome as a fart in an elevator here, too. The only people who want to talk to him are those nice investigators of the Crown Prosection Service - a kind of Inquisition, but British.

    His alleged role in the phone-hacking scandal, yes. He has yet to be found guilty, but we look forward to seeing it happen - anything to take that smirk off his loathsome pie-hole.

    Sadly we don't live in NZ, so we have to pay the price they cost here in yUK. There is much to commend NZ in my book - the liberal gun laws are only one of the reasons we would like to live there. We have friends in Christchurch and Aukland....

    This is my new favorite gun....looks old, shoots my favorite caliber and is quiet. ...and is bolt action so it becomes reasonable to shoot....not like my quiet mac ten carbine that ill unload 30rds of .45 in 2seconds just about.
