Today, we bring you one of the most silent suppressors we have ever made! It was easy.
What have we used?
You either want your rifle as loud as possible, as quiet as possible... or you aren't bothered at all. But most of us prefer a silent AEG, GBB gun or sniper rifle. Well, we have just made the most functional Airsoft Suppressor we have ever had our hands on.
What have we used? We started off with an "ASG - HUSH XL Suppressor - Black". This suppressor is a 14mm CCW fitment so will fit most AEG and GBB rifles out there. It also comes with an adaptor to fit the following sniper rifles:
For the purpose of this blog, we have installed it onto an ASG - STEYR SSG 69 Sniper Rifle.
The insides of the suppressor have been packed out with just ordinary foam you can find in a rifle or pistol hard case or even from music shops that are used to line guitar cases.
How did we do it?:
The suppressor has a long white internal tube but it is solid with a surrounding void and then the actual suppressor can. You can see in the image below exactly what we mean:
The first step is to drill as many holes as possible into this white tube, we recommend you try to hold it in a vice to do this. Please be careful as drill bits can slip! We used our in-store pillar drill in our workshop for this. You could dremmel in some slots instead but ideally make your holes as small as possible to avoid your foam packing squeezing through and catching your BBs. You can see the image below of how we have drilled out the internal spacer:
Now... RAM IT! Cram the empty space full of foam. We had a spare piece of foam knocking about:
We then cut it into thin slices so we could pack it out:
Simply cram the foam in, the tube spacer slots into the end cap, so keep it pressed in firm with one finger whilst pushing the foam in. We used an old inner barrel to help push the foam in, it was a little tricky as the foam may split:
Now add foam all around to keep the tube straight:
Once done, check there is no foam poking through your pre-drilled hole:
Now, all you have to do is screw on the end cap, keep the spacer tube straight and job done! Screw it onto your rifle and enjoy your DIY mods.
