Introduction: Easy and Cheap Airsoft Silencer

Picture of Easy and Cheap Airsoft Silencer

Just to warn you airsoft silencers dont actully silence the gun they ethier muffle the sound or its just for looks this one is both. The reason the silencers only muffle is because most of the noise is created within the gun so silencers cant make it completely silent 

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

The Materials youll need are...
  *A Peice of 3/4 in. pvc pipe
  *Straw from in-n-out or jack in the box
  *Foam insilation
  *Drill (Optional)
  *pvc Cutters
  *soda Cap (optinal
  *Packing Tape/electrical tape(packing works best)

Step 2: Cutting the Pvc

Cut the pvc to your desired length. cut the straw a little bit over the lengh of the pipe approx. 1/2 in.

Step 3: Inserting Insilation

cut pieces of insulation that will fit around the straw. put one at a time and push it into the pipe as you go along until full.

Step 4: Taping the Inserting Part of the Straw

now tape the part that will go into the gun(note if the staw is allready snug skip this step)

Step 5: Putting the Silencer Into the Gun

It is made to shoot one bullet, but I modded it so it should be able to shoot double. I don't think it's tri shot

dude it does work with co2 because the noise is the escaping co2 I have a fake co2 silencer because my mom though if I make a real one it might be faulty and I will blow my hand off (blow my hand off is just exajeration).
