The BBs Shouldn't touch the silencer. Unless the silencer is installed wrong, there is no legitamet reason it that it would decrease power or accuracy. A simple way to trouble shoot and see if your silencer is in the way of the BB, is to take off the upper reciever and with the inner barrel still in, look through the barrel (opposite the muzzel) with the silencer on and off and see if there is andythin blocking the BBs path.

Redzaku, you're half right with the whole musket thing, but airsoft guns have hop-up which muskets do not the hop-up puts a spin on the BB, giving it both gyro-stabilization, and lift. So the BB travels straight(ish) and will go further than the normal balistic trajectory... Try shooting your gunsideways, or upside down. You won't be able to use your sites, but you can curve your shot arround trees, or nail someone behind low cover... DFA sucker!

But like Pus said, a BB should not touch the silencer in flight.



Bahahaha, yeah right. Don't spout lies.

1000 maybe a stretch but snipers in the civil war could easily hit a target >300m they might be a old design but they are accurate if in the right hands which is the key to every good sniper.

The US Civil War? Then those weren't "muskets", they were firing muzzle-loading rifles. A musket is a smooth-bore muzzle-loader, and not accurate beyond 50 - 80 yards. They were only effective as mass-volley fire weapons at close range.

In the Napoleonic Wars, in 1808 (?) Rifleman Tom Plunkett of the British Army's 95th Rifle Regiment killed a French general at ~800 yards during the retreat to Corunna in Portugal. Using a flintlock Baker rifle.

I know this was posted a while but anyways I have a SD702 (sould of stuck to the SD700) and was wondering is there a suppressor for that gun and if so, how much accuracy distortion would you say? Its rediculously high powered, and has perfect acc. (5shots same spot shattering .2 each time)

If it's threaded in 14mm, you can use almost any suppressor on the market.

i use a Gemtech HALO silencer on my VFC 416 with a 10" (250mm) barrel and it really cuts down on the report from the muzzle. most people who have played along side me are impressed of how quiet my gun is. granted a lot of that comes down to the parts you use in your gearbox, but there is quite the difference in loudness when i take the silencer off. during a game this past week, i ran the first half with my can on and the rest of the afternoon with it off. the report from my muzzle was noticeably louder than even the GBBRs, and i could be distinguished from everybody else in the thick bush just by the muzzle report. the Gemtech doesn't use foam like most other cans out there, instead it uses a heavily packed wool like material. what ever that stuff is, it works really well.
