Ok, so I just made a suppressor for my gun. It is about four inches long and made of-

9/16 brass with holes drilled in a spiral patern
Toilet Paper wraped on the brass
A 1" (ID) piece of Pvc as a sheath
Edit: The piece is about 3 inces long, covering all of the holes, leaving an inch of undrilled brass sticking out.

When I slide it (part of the way) on to my barrel, it fits nice and snug onto it. The gun I used is a Supermaxx 1500 plugged pump, pumped four times. What mine did was lowwer the pitch of the "wooshhh" when the dart is fired. Edit: neverminde, "silencing" a blowgun is usless and stupid.

Now I am just wondering if this is how everyone else makes them. My friends that I nerf with don't use silencers, so I have no idea how anyone else does this. I just want to know-

1. How other people make them, and

2. If all the suppressor is supposed to do is lowwer the pitch.

Sound matters in a nerf war? News to me.

It does sometimes, lets say is you run up behinde your opponent, and pop a few shots off, It could help if they can't hear you. Yes, i realize that sound isn't a key factor in nerf, but you shouldn't disregard it.

Zero's Silencer. I'm working on a silenced Big Blast, but I'm not sure how the spiral porting will go, since I don't have any efficient drilling equipment.

Rambo, Dark Venereal Disease clearly hasn't had much if any nerf experience. Most of these types of threads show that. Figure out a way to increase your accuracy or rate of fire before you learn to shoot me more quietly. Just some advice.

I would have to agree. Have you (the OP) ever had a blowgun shot at you in a war before? From the distance I usually get shot at by them, I can't hear the dart or the air until the dart gets near me, and even then it's just the whooshing of the dart. They're quite silent weapons for the most part.

Rather than going through the trouble of making a silencer I'd just make the barrel longer, that way I improve my accuracy and range while quieting the weapon.

If you can't hit anyone in the first two shots your problem is sucky aim, not noise production.

Well guys, I just put the suppressor on my SM1500 and I like it, also you guys are right, I dont have a blowgun, or very much nerf experience, but from the experience I have had, I should have liked to be quieter on my part, whether that be the noise I make from my guns or the noise I make from my clothes. I will get some pictures of the SM1500 up later.

Although I agree that trying to have your fully silenced, accurate up-to 300 feet, nerf-sniprerifle is dumb and not really in the spirit of the game, I have found that certain guns of mine tend to be really friggen loud (ask carrtoon about my LS :blush: ). So loud infact, that it ticks off the neighbors. For something like this, I feel like a sound suppresion device might be warrented. I am not saying that this is the case here, just that silencing guns in nerf is sometimes ok.

In the more noisy Nerf guns (such as a longshot, mine is REALLY loud too) adding a suppressor isn't going to do jack squat because the noise isn't even coming from the barrel.

Yes, spring guns do make lots of noise, but thats not the point. What I was trying to do was successfully make a device to use on air(tank) guns that suppresses the noise. In my opinion, it was a success. Also I was not, I repeat was NOT trying to make some sort of dumbass sn- niping device, although the way I said things may have made it sound like that was my intention. Thanks for all of the input. Also, I am sure that you already know this, but adding some foam, like from a craft foam sheet to the plunger head helps a little, also if you fill in cracks of empty shell with some FBR, that helps to.

here is a picture-

Longer barrels aren't always key, it's the volume of the barrel compared to the volume of air being pumped in. On a plunger gun the volume of the plunger tube should be a little more than the barrel's volume to acheive max efficiency. If the barrel has more volume than the plunger/input the dart will lose power while in the barrel, making it less efficient. That's why guns like the crossfire, nitefinder, and maverick (which hardly have any barrel) gain power from extended (more efficient) barrels.

Barrel Length.
