I followed These directions and made a couple changes. This led me to building this.
The silencers first peice is made up of a coupler that has been filed down around the outisde so it can fit inside a peice of 1" I.D. Pvc. The sticker was put there to increase the straightness of the silencer while on the barrel.
Second peice is a 6" peice of 1" pvc.
Third peice is a 6" peice of 1/2" I.D. Pvc.
Fourth peice is an old towel that was used as the muffler in between the 1/2" and the 1" Pvc.
For the holes on the 1/2" inner pvc pattern went as follows:
1 row of spiral port = Barely silenced anything.
2 rows of spiral port= A little better.
3 rows of spiral port = It will have to do.
End result: Will effectivley silence any gun outside the guns range. AKA Bullshit.
In an optimistic look it was able to deaden the sound by 50% within range.
In a Realist's opinion why would you build a silencer to not fully silence?
The gun would also misfire 1/15 shots because the dart would hit the 1/2" pvc and come out spiraling out of control. Weighs in at about half a pound.
I knew I needed a bigger inner diameter peice of pvc to prevent this. So I decided to go and use the 1" pvc to be the new inner barrel in the new monster silencer.
Peices needed to build the Monster silencer.
18" of 1" pvc
18" of random black piping found in the plumbing section. (they sold it in small lengths)
1/2" pvc coupler.
The female end that comes on all bars of Pvc. 2 peices for front and back.
Step one. Take the coupler and sand it down so it can fit inside the 1" pvc snugly.
Step two. Cut two peices out of the female end of the 1/2" pvc and go to the hardware store and find the black piping that it fits perfectly into.
Step three. Buy that tube and cut it into 18"
Step four. Drill a shit load of holes. The more the better. Go ape shit.
Step five. Take the two female ends and epoxy them on both sides of the 1" pvc for perfect stability.
Step six. Wrap in between the two female parts evenly in toilet paper then paper towel.
Step seven. Make sure it is nice and snug in place and pop the coupler in.
Step eight. Take out that good old 5 minute epoxy and seal everything up and wait 24 hours.
I would like to say I didnt want this thing to be so long but with a larger ID you need larger lengths of pvc. I tried making one that was only a foot but it didn't do anything. This thing weighs in at about a pound and a half so you want to be holding it while its on the barrel. This for stationary guns only. Where people are set up in $niper positions. Bushes trees etc. I tried many different hole patterns and going ape shit on holes was most definitly the best route to go.
Here is a comparison in size.
Here is the part where the coupler fits onto the barrel.
Here is where I went ape shit on the holes. I made big holes and little holes.
Pros: Silences sound completely. a friend shot at me from 30 feet with modded Titan and I could only hear the dart whiz past my head. Makes Assassination hits more professional and gives you the opportunity to grab your next primary and take out another person if need be. (If they dont know where the shot came from, this gives you another chance to get someone else with a different gun.)
Cons: This thing is bulky,heavy and a little flimsy. Takes practice to get used to it. Player must be in a stationary, comfortable postion. Almost no possible advantage in wars.
Overall: I am pleased with the results. It does completely deaden the sounds of the Titan and the loud Supersoaker/nerf gun. This was the target goal. Remember before you post that this was designed for Assassin games and not wars.
