Since a silencer would be used (I think) on a longer barrel, it's (the silencer's) leverage on the barrel will multiply the weight of the gun considerably. So I'd think that there would have to either be a long, slightly weighted stock, or a short heavily weighted one. Either way, I don't think that many people use will even use a stock stock when their running also camping usually doesn't work in a war, so I'd count that out too.

Sorry that I worded that so badly. Its not that hard to explain things like this, but I have trouble writing down what I mean. The point is that silencer=shitty. No matter what.

Edit:

I read your sig as I posted this, and laughed out loud. (langy's quote)

You`re true about the leverage thing. A gun that helps eliminate that (an excellent example, might I add) is General Primevil`s SOBR. Kick-ass silenced design.

Glad you like the sig.

A silencer does not need to be heavy.

How do you effectively use a coke bottle? It is large enough that if the frequency and wavelength is right, you could actually amplify the sound.

A good scilencer for a 2K, LBB, LSB, Big Blast, and Titan can be made by having your actual barrel, in this case, CPVC full of holes toward the front, but not at the tip. Then you can secure the bottle with Goop or Epoxy, with a section of 1in ThinWall PVC running through it with holes in THAT, and the bottle will fairly much disperse the sound.
We should stop calling out/making fun of/pissing GC off. He's actually contributed and is available for trade. He's a better than average member no doubt. Got your back Cole.

if you did not have the holes in the bottle you could amplify the sound, but because you put holes in the bottle it merely disperses the pressurized gasses(air) before it leaves the barrell thus reducing the sound.

No, it works. Holes in the bottle would make it reverberate. This way, all excess pressure gets dispersed in the bottle. I have 3-4 around somewhere.

I think I have the jist of your design, but could you post a picture to clarify? Also, did you use a specific design/template for porting your barrel?

No pattern or anything, just drilled holes and tried to get them equally on either side.

no, you're quitting because you're wrong. the plain and simple truth of the matter is that nerf guns have neither the barrel velocity or the range to make even a fantasticly functioning supressor a worthwhile addition. you're much more likely to be noticed because of motion than because of sound anyway, and in nerf, no-one likes a sn1per, making a supressor even less desirable.

I hate sn1pers as well. I just have a gun that I have gotten it to work with, but I don't think it's entirely practical to use 90 psi for single shots, like my gun does. Either way, I NEVER said it's practical, or that anyone should USE one. If you some of you guys disapprove of silencers, then why are you posting here ? The sole purpose of a silencer is to let some gases depressurize upon the exiting of the barrel, thus reducing audible sound. If you have enough power to do this, like I do, then you can make it work. I have read a few books on firearms, and I'm a firearms enthusiast, I have read about silencers and how they work.

I managed to build my silencer into the bolt of my ls. In a springer, the high pressure gases (air column) don't produce all that much noise; the plunger slamming into the end of the plunger chamber is the culprit.

I managed to deaden nearly all of the crack by stepping down the tubing diameter in the bolt and then using a THICK wad of mouse pad. It also kills dead space.

It is entirely doable to build a working silencer. I've done it. Not that it works well, mind you. But it is cool.

Why would you want to build a silencer? I personally find the loud noise makes the gun sound very powerful.

And to make the noise even less fill in the dead space with say, fbr or some other material with sound absorbing qualities. FA did this to his shotgun he modified.
