Hello. I have been inspired by many people on this sight to build something unlike anyhting else, therefore I made this silencer.... that actually works!!!

here are some pics...

Steps:
1.) glue crayola marker to end of the barrell and take out the air restrictors.
2.) drill holes in 3/4 inch pvc, then glue onto marker.
3.) wrap pvc with kleenex and then with electric tape.
4.) get 1 1/4 pvc and drill holes to your style, then glue onto 3/4 pvc.
5.) stuff gun with kleenex for no vibration.
6.) paint to yout choice.

without a bullet, it is only half the sound of a normal modded nite finder, but when you are actually shooting a real dart, it is so muffled it is unbelievable!!!

please, give suggestions so I can make it better!

Great mod, even looks good and very clean cut. Just one thing, try to resize your pictures...they're pretty big.

Edit: Is that silencer removable?

Yeah i know, this is my first picture post and i messed up a lot, this took 20 minutes for the pictures... haha. The gun feels great because the front is so heavy!

-no, the silencer is not removable. i dont have the right materials for it to be screw on.

So, does the dart push farther in than in the picture or is that it? I imagine that if you lost that much barrel space, range would decrease just a little bit.

Good work, though.

Wow, great tip! It is a very clean and slick mod, not as messy as I have seen on others. Another great thing to stuff your gun is with packaging foam, but tissue would work just as good. Nice!

yeah, a couple people have done it before. It's still nice, though.

I kinda wonder about the performance of the silencer. Since most of the sound on a spring gun comes from the internals, not the air moving, a barrel-shroud silencer wouldn't do much to quiet it.

Also, you don't say you drilled holes in the marker. Did you just forget to write that you did? Or did you actually not drill holes in the marker. If you didn't, how does this work at all?
