An Irish company that designs and manufactures sound moderators for rifles used in hunting and sporting events seeks a distribution services agreement with a recognised wholesaler or distributor with a retail client base in the hunting and sporting sector worldwide. The moderator is a muzzle device that reduces the sound intensity and muzzle flash when a firearm or air gun is discharged.

The manufacturers have a track record on the Irish market. The product is designed and manufactured in Ireland. It has been fully lab tested and meets Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) specifications.

The moderators are commonly described as silencers. They are suitable for 22 Long Rifle and 17 Hordady Magnum Rim fire calibres. They are also appropriate for air rifles.

The product on offer is a detachable accessory as opposed to an integral part of a muzzle or barrel. This devise, cylindrical in shape attaches to the muzzle of a pistol or rifle.

The product was designed and is manufactured in Ireland and is very competitively priced. The product is much lighter than comparable moderators, 110 grams compared to 180 grams for the competition. This makes the rifle much lighter and therefore makes mover ability much easier for the user. A feature of other moderators is the fact the rings inside the unit come loose. Due to the clever research and development of this company’s product that defect is avoided.
