I think it has a lot to do with the quality of the silencer. I heard UK Niel ran some tests some time ago and found that on average adjustable strippers were most accurate, then without anything and then silencers. Again. I have found a silencer or two that really works at improving accuracy. Most dont seem to affect the accuracy. and a few that cause issues. I have always maintained but been told I am wrong that a stripper or well manufactured silencer could improve accuracy on a rifle with a less than perfect crown by stripping away the uneven turbulant air around the pellet. That is why I feel I havent seen an improvement with stripper or silencer in the accuracy of a steyr for instance. But it does help some 400's
