sound suppresors?

Unread postAuthor: mtronic » Sun Jun 24, 2007 3:17 am

I won't call them silencers for all the hardcore army guys:) but seriously is there a way of suppressing the report? Will it reduce my firepower? Any tips or advice will be greatly appreciated:)

Yes there are ways and no it won't - give us some specifications of your launcher and we can administer the appropriate guidelines :)

ok the chamber is 4" diameter by like 15" funneling down to 2" diameter(old barrel) by 6" and then to 1.5" by 25" barrel
Does this help?

Will this suppressor be detatchable?

combustion, I presume? an easy solution to cut down on noise is to use a longer barrel.

Alternatively, have a look at these threads:

I live in Australia, NSW. Im pretty sure they are illegal here too but what the hell. I usually only shoot on my property.

I made a getto suppressor this afternoon out of a 3ltr juice bottle and a heap of sheep wool(my mum owns a spinning & weaving shop). It has taken the echo out of the cannon and muffled it a bit.

My combustion cannon sounded like a 12 gauge, now it sounds like a .22 without the echo that follows.

its not too pretty but it works:)
