Silencing a Max Shot
Posted 20 March 2013 - 04:09 PM
It's also VERY LOUD! I've already taken a mod out of SGNerf's playbook and put a foam pad on the plunger head but it STILL makes a racket with every shot. It sounds like the spring is ringing.
Any ideas for noise-suppressing this thing? Trolls step away from the keyboard, I already tried the mod directory and the search function.
So far the only mods I've made are the plunger padding and a CPVC coupler with a dart stop.
Seeing as how the MaxShot is also famous for EXPLODING, I'm not going to remove the lock keeping it from firing with the cocking lever up.
So, any ideas for noise reduction? I'd also appreciate any advice from other MaxShot owners.

I tried years ago to make a string stop for one of my max-shot's, I didn't really work like I wanted to and in the end the blaster broke because of the mod.
I nerfed with a guy a few years ago that told me he packed the shell with great stuff expanding foam. I have no idea if it work for him. Maybe worth a try?
Someone else told me about there idea to replace the plunger tube with something longer in an effort to stop the plunger head from hitting. I cant really advise this because this could really mess up your blaster.
I think Beaver has a max-shot full of socks? Can someone confirm this?
Longshots are terribad and you should feel bad.
Crossbow shells suck and your mom sucks.

From what I understand, the Max Shot is very prone to breaking. The spring rest in particular is often the first thing to go. ANy hollow should be filled in and reinforced. I'm inspired to dig mine out and do my own overhaul.
SilentScopes overhaul can be found here.
The 'spring-ring' is just the vibration of the spring rattling against the plunger rod. There's nothing you can do about that other than replacing the spring with something of a different size.
Also, if it seems like the smashing of the plunger head into the end of the plunger tube is excessively loud, it's most likely that your barrel isn't long enough. ie the dart has left the barrel too early. The dart should exit the barrel juuuussssst before the plunger head hits the end of the plunger tube. Kind of like plugging the barrel with your finger to dry fire so it 'cushions' the blow.
