The initial installation of ASTUR mufflers must always be performed by an experienced and competent gunsmith, even if the rifles already have a factory-made muzzle thread. The thread and flange should have a smooth surface and should come into contact with the muffler so that it can be screwed in freely, but without too much tapping before it is tightly screwed to the flange.

ASTUR mufflers are designed with a small gap between the ball and the inner through hole to achieve the maximum possible muffler efficiency. Therefore, it is important to accurately cut the muzzle thread of the barrel. The center line of the muffler must be completely coaxial with the axis of the barrel. The initial installation of the muffler must be performed and checked by a qualified and competent gunsmith to ensure the required accuracy. The manufacturer’s warranty does not cover damage caused by incorrect installation of the muffler.

Make sure you use a muffler designed for your caliber, make sure the muffler is designed and approved for this. If in doubt, send us an email and ask. Self-assembling cartridges should be used with caution – they can not be loaded with more “hot” gunpowder than standard cartridges. A “reloaded” and “weakened” cartridge can fail, which can damage your muffler and weapon, or damage other objects nearby.

Before use, make sure that the muffler is firmly attached to the barrel. Always check the muffler for damage and to ensure that the threads, surfaces and stops are clean and smooth. After firing, remove the muffler and allow it to cool before placing it in a rifle bag or similar case. Never shoot from a very hot silencer. Different mufflers can handle different numbers of shots without stopping before the design is in danger. As a general precautionary measure, we strongly recommend that you take no more than 5 shots in a row, then wait until the muffler cools down.

Maintenance is important for safety reasons:
Failure to follow the maintenance instructions may result in corrosion, which may cause irreversible damage to the barrel and components inside the muffler. This can lead to breakage and endanger safety!

During firing, condensate is formed inside the muffler, which, among other compounds, contains ammonia. We recommend removing the muffler immediately after use and always before packing weapons for transportation. NEVERstore a rifle with a muffler attached.

After use, store the muffler in a warm, dry place where air can pass freely through it so that condensate can evaporate. When the muffler dries, apply a little light oil. Make sure the muffler and rifle threads are clean and lightly oiled.
