Introduction: Glue Stick Airsoft Silencer

Picture of Glue Stick Airsoft Silencer

This is a cheap and easy way to make a silencer for your airsoft gun that really works!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

1 Round pen
A Small Gluestick (I personally like the small Elmers kind)0.21 oz
4 or 5 Cotton Balls
Scissors
Pliers
Drill
File
Airsoft Gun
Knife With Teeth

Step 2: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

First take the gluestick and get rid of the glue and the thing it is sitting on. Then take your pliers and pry the twisting knob off. Also take out whatever is left on the inside so it is empty. (push it out with a screwdriver.

Step 3: Step 2

Take the pen apart so just the tube is left. Use the scissors to cut off the knob on the end of the pen.

Step 4: Step 3

Picture of Step 3

Take the cap of the gluestick and drill a hole through the middle (make sure it is big enough to fit the pen through). Do the same to the end of the tube with the hole on the gluestick to make the hole bigger for the pen to fit through.

Step 5: Step 4

Once you have made sure the pen fits, take the pen tube and the knife and cut little slits in the pen on the top and bottom. Leave some on the pen so it will fit in the barrel.

Step 6: Step 5

Picture of Step 5

Take the pen and feed it through the hole in the bottom of the tube in the gluestick. Dont put the cap on yet. Stuff pieces of the cotton into the space around the pen that is left in the gluestick. Once you have stuffed it to the top of the tube take the cap and feed the remainder of the pen through the top of the gluestick cap. This can be difficult. If problems occur make the hole a little bigger.

Step 7: Inserting the Silencer

Take the fininshed product and place the end of the pen into the barrel of the gun. If it does not fit take the file and shave the end of the pen untill it fits.

Step 8: Use

This works really good with my spring gun but I have not tried a co2 yet. It does make you lose some accuracy but the stealth is what matters. You can make it look better if you wrap some black duct tape around it or spray paint it. Have fun!!

Tell me if it works on C02 guns.

does it work on airsoft shotguns??

 SHOTGUNS SPREAD!!! They DO NOT go straight, so that would be pointless. 

Good point, though.

shotgun slugs with a rifled barrel or a rifled slug shoots straight

Works great! I put a glue stick and a half on it and it still works great!!!!!!

i know an easier way to get every thing out : screw on the cap all the way the twist the bottom thing and make sure your twisting it so the glue extends an everything will pop out

Andy101nguyen (author)2009-08-12

where do you cut the slits, put more pictures up DUDE!!!!

i am pretty sure its the top of the pen and the bottom it to let the air out into the cotton balls

buttsniffer (author)2009-09-12

daelans (author)2009-05-10

i dont understand step 4. where are the slits, what size, why, it just doesnt make much sense.

airmaster12 (author)2009-02-18
