Hey all,

I'm looking for a good, cost effective way to silence or dull the loud crash my souped up NF makes when fired. I would rather not feel like punching a baby or drivin a nail into my skull when I fire this thing. I know about padding the plunger head (I have done that) and slipping FBR into the rest of the shell. The FBR method is a bit expensive for me though. I would rather not spend any money on this but if I have too...

I'm just looking for a good way to quiet the gun down so it's not so aggregiously LOUD!

If anyone needs to know: mods done/will be done are AR removal, plunger head padding, 1/2" CPVC couplered, light removed.

Thanks,

Whisper...

I've found the most cost effective way is 5/8 (mega) foam from home depot. $4 gets you a 20' bag which is WAYYYYYY more than you need.

Using weaker springs (which is fairly undesired), foam insulation, padding the plunger, and using tighter darts, are the methods I know.

If at first you don't succeed, add more epoxy.

1337- do you think that 1/2 foam might wor too? That way, with the leftovers, I could make stefans.

How is the fbr method expensive? It cost about $3 for a 20' roll, and you only need about 1' to silence it. That's about 15 cents to silence your nf.

The yellow balls are also slightly smaller in diameter than the green ones.

Why wouldn't it...?

I keep a box and a bag with all of my foam scaps in it. It largely consists of failed/broken stefans, and foam that wouldn't make good darts (bends in it), and I just use that to dampen the sounds and vibrations of my guns. It doesn't really cost me anythinh extra, I just recycle what I would have thrown away.

Put more E-tape under the o-ring and some less dense padding on the plunger head.

You could also just shove the entire blaster into an old throw pillow. Looks retarded, sounds quiet. You could also stuff it with polyester batting (teddy-bear stuffing). Search for "Pubed Tech Target".

I use an old cut-up matress filling, I cut it in strips and squares and superglue them in the shell, works a treat on my LS, Recon, Raider and Furyfire
