I searched the sight in hopes that the first day that I joined I would not have to create a thread but I haven't found the answer I am looking for.

I want to know what all of you experienced snipers do to to suppress your guns. To make them silent. To do it cheaply?(If thats even possible). I have just preordered the airsoft gi g98 and I have heard from their previous g700 that it will be a loud 570 fps and I want to know how to make it quiet. If this post does'nt belong here I am sorry and I just need someone to steer me in the right direction.

Ok, before a mod ( :cough: fuzzywolly ;) ) comes in here any tells you, I will.

First, you need to make a intro post, just so we know who you are

Second, you will want to silence it by putting a small piece of something soft on the front of the piston. There is already a piece of rubber there but it still makes a noise from metal on metal. I super glued a small thing of foam on the front and it fixed my little nose I had when I shot.

Third, you will half to wait and see what makes noise on the gun. there are a couple of things you can do.
-foam the stock
-add a silencer to the end to absorb noise cased by the bb leaving the barrel
-also some DIY mods you can find here and there

But like I said wait till you get the gun, then go from there.

If you want a truly quiet spring, you'll need to downgrade the spring.

What hidden187 means by putting foam on the piston, he means that you need to put a material called "Sorbothane" on it the piston. It will absorb some of the stress of your gun.

Next, buy a Laylax cylinder head. They got a rubber padding that will reduce the vibrations, and it will provide a good seal for the bucking. Helped a lot in my mouse fart VSR10. However, you can also add sorbothan on this if you don't want to spend money.

Next you want to put non-drying clay in the stock.

Hope it helps Bud. Reply soon.

Ahhh yes... The art of silencing your rifle


To get a silent spring rifle, as whisper has mentioned, you will NEED to downgrade your spring big time for starters. Once you have found the lowest power spring you can, I have a couple tricks that work pretty well. As long as your stock piston is plastic, you can easily grind it down to some very thin dimensions in the non vital areas(anywhere on the outside that is not sliding along the cylinder or hitting the cylinder head when fired) to lessen the weight of your piston which reduces the force/sound made by the piston hitting home. Next up is your piston head and cylinder head; I like to add a rubber piece(like the Laylax power cup or whatever) onto the piston head and attach the foam onto the inside of the cylinder head with a tapered hole for the air to channel through. Last thing I do is make sure the piston fits into the cylinder with no wiggles(but not too tight) and check that the spring fits over the spring guide nicely(spring guide needs to be stable) and inside of the piston with no left over room for shakes. This is what I call my silent cylinder setup


Next, fill your stock up full of foam or a light, airy filler/sealant foam to reduce sound reverberation within your gun. Put molding clay around and cracks or holes that lead into the trigger box/cylinder. Once everything on the inside is done, cover any spaces from the inside to the outside of your gun with a thin layer of molding clay(make sure to take the receiver/barrel back out for the last phase of drying so you can disassemble your rifle in the future without messing up your sealant).

Lastly, tightly wrap your barrel in a good amount of Teflon tape(electrical tape) and put that into your external barrel with a 'one piece paper barrel spacer' (a bunch of printing paper wrapped tightly around your barrel which acts as a pretty good spacer and fills cavity that would normally amplify sound).

If you still feel the need, go ahead and put your silencer on(foam filled, or not; just try and use one with the widest diameter possible) and place a layer of tape( duct tape or electrical tape) over the exit hole then fire a good 20 shots to create the smallest exit hole possible(might want to stretch the tape out a tiny bit more so it never touches the bb) making a large expansion chamber from which air/gas/sound leaks very slowly from.

If anything, just keep in mind that you need to make all of your seals as good as possible.

Now for a gas gun... things are a bit more simple. Fill any extra space there might be just as you did for the spring rifle and try to add a little extra sealant/ foam near all your connection points the gas passes through or near. The most important thing to install onto your rifle is a properly crafted silencer; the goal is to get the widest diameter expansion chamber with the smallest possible exit hole diameter. As far as foam goes, I put a thin layer of relatively dense foam lining the inside of the silencer to dampen the echoing inside of it but no more because all that will do is reduce the volume of your expansion chamber so your escaping gas is coming out faster and in a larger volume(so its louder).

Something I heard rumors about was a type of paint you can use on your gun that is light but kind of thick which apparently puts a sort of sound dampening shell over the entire rifle; just something to look into.

Well, hope I helped you achieve your goals, let me know if you have any question man! I hope to see some of everyone elses ideas put up here soon
