A Weihrauch or Hogan Decimeater are the cheapest and often the quietest. In terms of £ per dB reduction they are impossible to beat. There are plenty of more expensive moderators that aren't as quiet!

As RKR said above, if the gauge has been over-tightened it causes the O ring seal to block the air passage to the gauge, loosen it half a turn and see if it reads, if not you may actually have a faulty gauge (not impossible, I've changed a few!) A new gauge can be bought and fitted without removing any of the BSA ant-tamper measures, so if you returned the gun with the original gauge fitted (in the event of anything else failing during warranty) how would they know you'd changed the gauge?
I'm 99% certain it's just that the gauge has been over-tightened, if the O ring has been damaged (unlikely but possible) you can easily fit a new one, the size and type is BS106 NBR70. When unscrewing a gauge to replace an O ring do it slowly, when you hear air escaping stop unscrewing, leave it to allow the hissing to stop, then unscrew a bit more until hisses again and it's vented all the air. Unscrewing too rapidly can launch the gauge into low orbit!

Have you tried loosening up the gauge a bit, in case the o-ring is mushed and blocks the air from entering the gauge?

Good evening. I've been looking in for a while, time to join.
I've enjoyed dozens of rifles over the 40 odd  years I've been shooting, lots of BSAs, including Cadets, Meteors, Spitfire, R10 Mk2, and still use my cadet, a modded Ultra SE tactical and a lovely SFS tuned Lightning tactical.
Living in a small village with a little bit of land means I have room to shoot safely at up to 30 yds. I never take this for granted or get bored of it!!
I'll update profiles shortly. Thanks for looking.

McAvoy is also my "local" gun shop. I've bought/sold several rimfire and centrefire rifles from them, but so far no airguns. Well worth a visit if you're ever in the Wigan/Standish area.  :wink:

JJ McAvoys in STANDISH near WIGAN what can I say, I work abroad (Iraq, Afghanistan) but live in Charnock Richard used to live in Appley Bridge so these guys are my local RFD, I have been to a few others locally and one in particular where very unfriendly very snobby so I will be giving those a wide birth in future. McAvoys however are quite simply fantastic, they have always given sound advice, been good enough to hold rifles for me while I was away working and in general been superbly friendly, their shop is a bit of an alladins cave and if they haven't got what your after they will get it for you.
Couldn't recommend them more.
