I realize this sounds idiotic, but would it work?


The theory is sound, but a neater way of utilising the same principle is to use springs as spacers between the baffles.

It usually helps to have the spacing at an uneven distance from eachother, starting with small spaces getting bigger as you approach the end of the silencer. The smaller the spaces, the more baffles you can fit in and the more effective your silencer will be ;)

I've never used that particular model personally but it's a highly recommended unit and I've seen it used on anything from 0.177 CO2 pistols to 0.22 rimfire rifles.
