Is it some sort of silencer ? If it is, it does not seem all that good?

Does it have some affect.

If I changed it to something like a Weihrauch silencer, would I lose accuracy or anything ?

These seem very nice

What does an air stripper do over a silencer?


Hi Rob, I have had an MPR FT and the air stripper doesn't really do anything. If you take it off and look through it, there is no cone to strip the air. I am not saying it does not strip some air, but to be efficient there needs to be a cone. Adding a silencer will not alter power, but in some instances I have noticed a slight drop in POI. The Rowan one Is a cone type and will strip air more efficiently but will not silence it. NEIL.
