    Do you own a Hogan Decimeater?

    Picked up one today from the local gunshop...
    And its really not what i expected. To the extent i dont think it is even one?

    Its about 7-1/2 inches long, has two milled bands on the exit end and is generally poorly made. the bluing is carp, the lathe work is 'average' at very best with shards of swarf on the inside of the endcap that just look like they are waiting to clip a pellet and the inside consists of plastic hair curlers with high density foam wrapped around...

    the tollerance on the screw fitting is miles out and you can wobble it around 5mm until it butts up on the barrel. both the SAK and an older logun mated perfectly so its not the barrel.

    now ive heard very good things about these, workmanship, all cnc and on par with the weihrauch but with alloy internals.

    what ive got aint that

    it didnt come in the box but apparently came off a hogun rifle (i was supposed to collect a new sealed ordered one) and the shop assure me its genuine? even phoning hogun to confirm the plastic internal tubing.

    ive just compared it to the SEK it was to replace and its very marginally better, just about.

    apparently the one i was after (metal internals) is only available proofed/fac but judging by the build quality i wouldn't be impressed eather way.

    the one i have just looks very cheaply made, as in far east.

    Anyone else notice the same, or have i got a duffer/the wrong mod?

    i accepetd it simply because i needed a quieter mod for lamping, so could live with a few imperfection's but 40 for at best a 10% noise reduction over the SAK im not impressed remotley.

    TBL.

    Quite probably... even with the extra 7

    I wanted something with metal internals though, hence the hogun, or so i thought.

    I've maybe had dozens of silencers over the years, ripley, logun, AWT, rob lane to name but a few.

    this one really does seem average, in both sound reduction and build quality but in hogans defence, i just want to clear up that i actually have one in
    front of me?

    TBL.

    Here's mine, maybe it's because you asked for a Hogun rather than a Hogan.

    Hogan Decimeters are 10/10!!!! As pic above you can strip down to clean. It will come in a nice tube I don't think you have a Hogan Decimeter!!

    A few pictures... Im not being 'pickey' but i am surprised with the workmanship, the humble SAK is miles ahead for machining and bluing.

    This is what i have inside.

    that looks nothing like my hogan silencer.
    I think they equally as good as the hw silencer, on some rifles they are better than the hw
