Nope not at all, in fact some people hide longer inner barrels INSIDE silencers.
Yes go for a good charger, ie. "DuraTrax ICE" charger. Go to an RC shop, they'll be able to tell you everything you need to know about chargers and batteries and in most cases sell you a charger for cheaper than an airsoft store will sell it to you for (beware for them blowing smoke up your ass sometimes though cause I've found some people will do that, find a guy who is knowledgeable and doesn't bullshit).
Also most of the noise doesn't come out of the flash hider, in fact the noise comes from the motor and receiver area because of all the moving parts and such.
Also in the case of mags, you'll probably end up buying twice anyways since you might drop some mags and never find them again. If you do invest in quality metal mags though what you should do is take a can of sky blue, pink, safety oragne, whatever spray paint and paint the top 1/4 or 1/3 of the mag for easy identification in case you do drop them so it's a bit easier to find.
