@guests: the Mosin uses stripper clips. These hold 5 rounds, you clip the thing to the gun and then you push the rounds from the clip into the magazine of the gun. After that, you take the clip away and close the bolt, the clip never enters the magazine. You can put additional rounds into the mag at any time after that, it makes no difference.
It isn't like the en-bloc clip of the M1 Garand, which is pushed into the magazine and ejected when empty.
How would the silencer improve accuracy? Explain it to me, please. It's not a direct extension of the barrel, which would improve the accuracy to some degree, it's basically a weight at the muzzle that negatively affect accuracy, because it ever so slightly bends the barrel down. It doesn't make the "shell" slower, either. The round will only be slower if you use subsonic ammunition, which is not in the game yet, which is also the only way to truly supress a guns sound. With regular ammo, the thing just becomes a big flash supressor.
Well I agree with 19kilogrunt in that a suppressor (it isn't called a silencer, by the way, it's suppressor, nobody that knows a thing about it, calls it a silencer....) doesn't make the gun quiet without subsonic ammo and even with that, the M4 has a rather loud, distinct sound when firing, you can't make the 5.56 into a whisperround, you can only mask it, to make it harder to locate the shooter. Not to mention that the 5.56 loses MOST of it's power and range when subsonic, because it was designed as a highspeed, supersonic round. That's why they invented specialized calibers like the .300 Blackout.
But I also agree with Mr.Darkness in that the sound should at least be different.
