I'm going to try but without water. I'm sure it will muffle shooting noises a lot. Thank you !

The water would help with a hybrid too. The gasses are at high pressure partly because of the heat generated by combustion and the water absorbs a lot of that heat, dropping the pressure as a result.

Ok I understand. It is a little complicated to use liquid for the maneuver of air - gas loading, because the weapon moves a lot, but I will try it anyway.

Alternatively you can pack it with copper scouring pads swabbed with lithium grease, though then it would help if you inserted a central tube with holes to keep the mesh out of the bullet path.

If you're in a more professional mood and you have a church tower nearby visit your local mechanic for some parts and make a proper baffled suppressor ;)

Even the muffler was painted! MacGyver does not exist after seeing this.
Yes. I will definitely build one with a spring, scourer of metal shavings and a tube. :D
