M4 quietning

So I've just started into my new spotter role and I have a few questions. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

1. As I am working as a spotter I would like to make my M4 as quiet as possible so I don't give my or my shooters position away if I have to take a shot. I believe a silencer is probably a good place to start, but I have seen many different brands and types and I'm unsure as to their effectivness.

2.Also is there something I should do in regards to getting a new inner barrel? i.e one that will improve accuracy(not range)/sound suppression. With my current setup it is extremely hard to hit someone with one shot.

3. Stability of my weapon can also be an issue at times. I am considering buying a foregrip attatchment with a built in bipod to make for better stable shooting. If anyone has experience with using one could you please let me know if you thought it was useful.

Thanks! :tup:

1. Suppressors won't do much since most of the noise from an AEG is the gearbox/motor, where it might make some difference it won't do to much.
Here's a link to a thread that modified a silencer to help muffle the sound from shooting but for a springer. If you want less noise for every shot you need to open up the gearbox and reshim, add a sorbopad, and level your motor height perfectly to lower the whining from the motor.

2. Get a MadBull V2 M4 (363mm) barrel, absolute dream. A new bucking would help but that's a topic I'm not good at for AEGs. Also there's no barrel that will shoot quieter than another.

3. As for the Bipod/Foregrip they're nice but in my experience the bipod part is a little more wobbly then a normal bipod but since your a spotter I think the combo would be nice.
Just by configuring a suppressor won't muffle the sound from a GB, IMO I've never heard a modified suppressor muffle sound from an AEG. Where I do agree it will distort some of the sound (link I provided) it won't silence the GB like re-shimming, adding a sorbopad, and leveling the motor. As for the barrel I read it as he was looking for a new barrel if not I 100% agree with cleaning the stock barrel, even polish it. Even if the barrel noise get's muffled I'm sure there's plenty of people that can still pinpoint the sound of a GB (if he's trying to hide), so overall I highly suggested opening up the GB.
