Am I about right so far ?

Q1. Is the Rowan stripper the best on the market? Best being, works the best, fits the best and finished the best.
Q2. Would a stripper be as loud as my gun is now with the standard AA 'stripper' on it?

I don't think a silencer will affect accuracy, I have fitted one to many different rifles an the only thing I experienced Is a slight drop in POI on some of them.

The Rowan stripper is a good one IMO but as is said above, UK Neil makes the best I took my MPR down to him around 6 months ago and he made me one while I waited. Even got some of his blood on it.....

The stripper would more than likely make your rifle a bit louder, but more accurate, get one with an adjustable cone and experiment with the distance between end of barrel and the start of the cone......usually around 3-4mm. If you are target shooting I would recommend a good air stripper. Neil.
