Walther have made a huge impact with many of their air rifles, however, it’s the Rotex family that are the mainstay of the range and include a wood stock model, synthetic ‘Varmint’ designated rifle and the latest addition being the Rotex RM8 Varmint UC (Ultra Carbine).
The relevance here is the UC comes supplied with the Umarex K3 Neo Silencer, a compact can that’s recently been added to the company’s product roster as a standalone accessory. This is good news for airgun shooters due to this all aluminium mod showing its effectiveness for a variety of sub 12ft/lb airguns in either .177 or .22 calibre.
Measuring 140mm x 32mm in diameter and weighing 151-grams, the outer casing has a matte black anodised finish – meaning no quarry alerting shine when screwed up-front of springer or PCP. The sensible dimensions and low weight make it unobtrusive, doesn’t add an unnecessary forward weighting and therefore won’t affect the balance or handling of your rifle.
With a ½-inch x 20 UNF female thread it will suit the majority of screw cut muzzles and its sound reducing qualities are a result of 3-internal chambers that hold baffles plus 2-vent hole can clearly be seen in the front face to help dissipate exiting air.
