Default Stripper v Suppressor

As far as I understand it an Air Stripper works BT directing air away from the line of the pellet so that turbulent air does not affect the flight of the pallet.

If that is correct then I am wondering in that case does a suppressor (silencer) not do the same thing and theoretically have a benefit other than reduction of noise.

Yes it does the same thing and people notice increased accuracy sometimes after fitting ( maybe due to added weight thus less muzzle flip some due to less turbulence)

but i think the jury thinks a dedicated stripper does it more efficiently than a suppressor thus where noise is not an issue is better than the suppressor.
