Airsoft Gun Silencer




Introduction: Airsoft Gun Silencer

This is a silencer I made for my Airsoft gun. Made of two toilet paper rolls, one shortened a bit to make it the right length. Wrapped in duct tape, with bits on the rear end to make it stick to the gun (not messy bits all over the place though). Amplifies the sound of a dry fire because it's empty right now, but increases accuracy of shotgun style firing (when you cock the gun multiple times to load more BBs into the chamber). I might put paper in to make it actually silence the gun.

This does not make my gun any quieter (for now anyways). It's just for looks, I guess.

    yow that is cool i need to know this

    Look, i have been shooting guns (real and airsoft/bb) for years. There is NO piston in a spring gun UNLESS it is a sniper rifle. On a non-sniper, the spring is pulled back then released pushing a rod through the magazine chamber releasing a bb through the barrel. CO2 guns are the ONLY type of airsoft guns that can be silenced. the way to silence them is to put a gas-catcher around the outer barrel. around the gas-catcher should be outlet holes which allow the gas to move out of the gun not directly out of the barrel.

    On a real gun, the silencing system is the same. The released gas is moved out the sides of the gun rather than straight out of the barrel creating reduced noise, not complete silence.

    Trust me, don't fuss with silencing UNLESS you own an airsoft rifle or an airsoft gun powered by CO2. Trust me, you dont want a stupid looking gun.

    dude,there is a piston in airsoft guns,any with a spring have a piston,they work the same as air rifles

    in a springer pistol a spring pushes a rod through a chamber/piston to create air pressure

    yes, but the sound of the air pushing out is almost completely silent, the main sound is the plastic colliding inside of the gun, and the sound is not coming out of the barrel

    but the sound comes out of the barrel.its mainly the air behind the bb,i made a air stripper that combats this,getting a softer piston seal can make things quieter too

    I hope that you mean supressed... any way, gas gons are the only ones that can be silenced concentionally with foam and/ or baffles. others can be silenced via overlong barrels, airbrake piston heads, quieter drivetrain parts, ect.

    Christ, don't you people know how to read? Half of the comments on this instructable are about things that I already talked about in the description. This is for looks ONLY, I was just screwing around with it. But you're still wrong about the piston issue, mine does not use a rod to push the BB out of the barrel. The piston never touches the BB. It's all air pressure.

    wrong pistol springers do have a piston in them ill send u a picture if you wsnt

    What do you mean "no piston in a spring gun", every airsoft gun I've opened  uses a spring loaded piston, sometimes combined with a motor and grab-then-release gear system.

    Dumbass. Why do you think I put "this does not make my gun any quieter (for now anyways). It's just for looks, I guess" in bold letters?

    I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to all the other dumbasses that thought this would help silence.

    what bits make it stick to the gun. I made a cardboard one and its awefull. it slides off sometimes but really actually silents it. The accuracy is terrible with it.

    isnt a silencer used to suppress a muzzle flash of a real gun? Why would you need a silencer on an airsoft gun??

    yes but it also pushes the sound out further so it does make it a little quieter but not drastically

    My friend has that gun. You really dont need a silencer for it

    I am working on one made with cell foam and electrical tape. The cell foam is alot more noise-reductive than toilet paper or pillow stuffing, but a little more expensive. Anyways, they all just cost around a buck, right?
