suppressor help

Unread postAuthor: roughboy » Sun May 10, 2009 12:10 pm

Can you guys tell me if this is correct or not. if not please explain why.
This will not be a fixed suppressor it will be a removable one.

Looks good, the one thing I'd change is instead of sponge/cotton, use scouring pads like these:

By the way this is a pneumatic gun.

With combustions, ive found that instead of sponge/cotten, steel wool works really good

First off, he said it was a pneumatic gun, and second using steel wool with a combustion isn't the best idea...

I am reffernig to all of them... so on the barrel, coupling and on the silencer... if it is not perfectly in line you can hamper performance and accuracy so make sure it's more less in line

or you can simply have two barrels... one used normally and one with an inbuilt silencer

ohh and remeber that drilling malleable iron isn't as easy as you can think it is... unless you have a drill press it will to be a nightmare

Actually, it is. The air does not heat it up enough to ignite. Even in "powder" firearms steel wool is used in suppressors.
It cools the air, reducing pressure. Very effective silencers for combustion type guns.

With pneumatics, lots of volume is the key.
I suggest slipping it "coaxial" over the whole barrel.

Another and last question. how big should the suppressor housing be? The barrel of my gun is 1/2'' so should the housing be inch and a half or 2''?

C'mon that's your last question? :P
I'd say 3" inch (or more).

Your supressor design looks OK, But why not use pvc pipe and couplings and sandwich your baffles in between? (Try couplings back to back even).

All you need is washers that fit the ID of the couplings and use the pipe as holder for them.
If you sandwich rubber washers between the metal washers and have a smaller hole in the rubber washers (bike intertube etc.), you will create one of the most effective suppressors ever!

Just be sure and have atleast 8-12 baffled sections and it should work great.

BTW, for safety, it's probably a good idea not to hold the suppressor when firing. :roll: :wink: 8)
