silencer n00b!

Hi everyone im new here! I started playing airsoft not so long ago (Ip^layed paintball for 10 years now recball and speedball mostly... Im looking to put a silencer on my g&G gr15 (m416) because you know electric guns dont make boom! so a silencer would fit more with the electric motor sound.. Does the silencers affect the range precision of the gun by anyway do they act like putting a longer barrel like paintguns and giving more precision??

thx for your help and sorry for my bad english!

Silencers/Supressors change the report of the sound, they dont muffle it.

Furthermore, 90% of the noise you hear from your AEG is from the motor in your grip, not from the barrel.

Well, I put a silencer on my S-552...

I did not however put a longer barrel on it...

It now shoots in every possible direction except for where I am aiming.

If I intend on "killing" anything I have 2 choices: A) Buy a longer barrel / B) remove the silencer.

Now, in reality, with the original barrel it did perform well in reducing the muzzle "pop" of the gun but the mechbox and motor still make the majority of noise.

Esthetically speaking, it look great... but if you want to survive, stand directly in front of me.

Cheers

Silencers by themselves actually decrease accuracy it's best to buy a longer inner barrel then put a silencer to hide it.

How exactly do they decrease accuracy?

The inside of the silencer chamber distorts the aerodynamics of the BB... Once the BB comes out of the barrel, the remaining air behind it bursts into the chamber (nowhere else to go) and that disruption reduces your accuracy...

With a simple muzzle, the air behind the BB disperses into the surrounding air harmlessly


Or at least that's what I see in my mind...

without an inner barrel because the inside of a silencer is slightly wider the rounds as they pass through spinning from the hopup will create a vacuum effect inside the silencer and pull themselves to the inner walls, bouncing off and altering trajectory. the round is now unstable and it a new flight path, often sideways. thats why it's key to put a longer innerbarrel to flush with the silencer to keep the round moving nicely

while still on this topic can I ask; would they work on gbb guns then? since they operate without a motor and more like a real gun

I've got a suppressor for my MP5 and P90 and no extended barrel. Both guns have a seriously loud report normally, and the suppressor muffles the sound nicely. It's far from being silent, but the difference in volume is quite noticeable.

And I've yet to see any difference in accuracy in either gun with or without the suppressor installed.

Suppressors do not really do anything to change AEG performance. They will not enhance range or anything like that. Aesthetically though supressors are sometimes used to hide longer inner barrels. Sound does change slightly when using a suppressor its nothing massively significant but it is a definite noticeable change.

As noted above the majority of sound that a person hears is the whine of the motor.

ARMS magazine 2010 issue January did a test

most silencers reduced overall noise of the gun by an average of 10db, regular noise = 88db, and it would go down to 76~79db with any length of silencer.

I have an array of suppressors from a PBS-4 for the AK to a AAC for the SCAR and they all change what folks at the receiving end hear and also do not affect accuracy. The AK one is particularly nice at this. There is also nice little Knights Armament Co SOCOM for a USP GBBB in the toolbox that works fine also.

These are all dry, anyone tested wet yet?

And as noted before, this is what the person in the To: line of the shot hears, not the Sender.
