It's not illegal because that would not work on a real firearm. And yes it is a fake suppressor because it will not suppress an actual firearm.

Well thats how real silencers are made,though.

llamatard (author)Pbyrd2012-02-11

nope, they are made w/ washers and pipe....not tht i have made 1...

Pbyrd (author)2008-07-24

Well this is ilegal because this isnt a fake silencer as you say it is, it's a real one.
I wouldn't make these anymore because of that reason. But still a good instructable. I just wanted to let you know that these are real so you wouldn't get into trouble making these.

As long as it has blaze orange on the tip its not illegal.

llamatard (author)nightcreep202012-02-11

not illegal anyway, just highly advised :P

its not like it can silence an airsoft gun that much, unlike real guns, airsoft doesn't propel bullets using expanding gasses caused by an explosian. a silencer works by dispelling these gasses (to make it simple) and in an airsoft gun (every single one ive seen in reakl life, even ones i didnt use) , one, did not shoot like this, and to most of the noise came from inside the gun. therefor this cant silence an airsoft gun very much, possibly a gas a little bit, but mostly just muffle, there for is a muffler not a silencer.

it's not illegal if it can't be used on a real gun. he used fragil cd's that would break away if used on a gun. the atf couldn't charge you with any crimes.

sharlston (author)2009-07-25

in the last step it looks like a pink co2 cartridge with holes in it lol

daelans (author)2009-05-10

is there supposed to be sound in the video?

daelans (author)2009-05-10

i have a question, hows it attach to the gun, does the highliter slip in the barrel? cause that would block BBs, i already have a silencer but the tip of the gun i want it on is not threaded so i need to know how to attach it straight.

daelans (author)2009-05-10

also, in yours you didnt need the holes all that much. just more realistic, correct?

chicks dig me (author)2008-09-11
