make a small silencer

Unread postAuthor: chinnerz » Mon Apr 19, 2010 10:24 pm

This is from a glade small air freshener

i dont think this will work too well, but if your not looking for something which is super effective, but instead something which is easy to build, then this is for you.
this build is so ridiculously easy its not funny, it took me less than 5 mins!

this will fit a 10 mm barrel well but may also fit a 6mm barrel.



step 1: Make sure its empty, or you will end up like me.... smelling real pretty like...

step 2: Take a small hammer and hit that top blue shaft, you will hear some gas being released

step 3: take a small drill bit to make a pilot hole, maybe 4mill, drill the hole at the top and at the bottom

step 4: clean the inside, and take out the mechanism

step 5: drill a 10mm hole in the top and the bottom.

Thats it :D

**fitted to my rifle**

:D :D :D

Cute, but with suppressors, size does matter, especially with pneumatics at higher pressures, so it's more of a "muzzle brake" of sorts

A suppressor passively acts as a muzzle brake by reducing the propellant gas pressure before it exits the muzzle, thereby reducing recoil. However, purpose made brakes usually direct the propellant gasses backwards, in order to provide a force that tries to move the gun forwards, thereby actively fighting recoil.

In your case, it would something like this:

Yeah, unfortunately, "small silencer" is an oxymoron.
Depending on the pressure you are running at, for the silencer to do much at all in a pneumatic (besides possibly change the tone of the shot) you need for the silencer volume to be at least a few times the size of the chamber volume.
Combustion cannons and guns have it much easier, as they use hot gases. All the silencer needs to do is cool the gases down. They do this by having it flow through steel wool type stuff, and slowing it down, giving it more time to come in contact with the steel wool.
Back to your silencer though. From the looks of it, you should be aiming for something more in the range of 2"-3" diameter, and about a foot long.

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
