More supressor Questions

Ok, my idea of a supressor is to have an inner sheath, which the BB will travel thru with many holes drilled into it, then some type of foam filling (most likely fbr) then an outer sheath to hold the foam in place.
Is my understanding of an airsoft supressor correct? I know it wont completely silence the gun because of the mechanical sounds, but the gas escaping is still pretty loud. It is a Propane NBB btw.
~Should the inner sheath be close to the diameter of the BB i.e 7mm?
~Or should it be much larger than the diameter of the BB i.e 16mm?
~Should there be a lot of room for the foam filling?
~Should platic or metal be used for the inner sheath?
~Should platic or metal be used for the outer sheath?
~Should the outer sheath be thick or thin?
~Should the inner sheath be thick or thin?
Thanks in advance, I know I ask a lot of questions

Because it's a generic brand, and it doesnt have a threaded barrel and theres no parts available for it.

How do you plan on connecting it, and may I ask what gun it's going on?

You would be better off modifying your gun to take a suppressor than making one yourself. I assume it is a Taurus 24/7 or similar. I had one when i first started playing and drilled out the end of the slide (or what would be the slide)
to fit a socom suppressor, like the one used on a MK 23. This type of suppressor threads into the barrel rather than the barrel threading into the it ( male-female as opposed to female-male).

Alternatley, you could build a Threaded sleeve which you could epoxy to the end of the gun to fit a regular AEG suppressor to. Keep in mind you will need one with positive threads or an adapter since you do not likely have access to a 14mm negative die to thread your sleeve on your gun.

Oh and make sure the outside diameter of the threads on the sleeve is 14mm as well.

most supressors on airsoftparts.ca are expensive, I'm assuming they are metal, or heavy ABS. Gluing an adapter on the gun then attaching a heavy silencer....it would most likely break off. The plastic outer barrel isnt sturdy enough to hold a heavy silencer, and glue would make it even easier to snap off.

By the time you have your supressor built, it will weigh almost as much as a metal one anyway. I think putting a supressor on that gun is a bad idea all around.

Welcome to airsoft. Pay up or GTFO, because once you get started, this hobby becomes a black hole for your cash.

Hoe do you assume it will weigh as much as a metal one?

I wasn't complaining about the price, what I meant was that a high price would most likely indicate quality, and heavyness.

The metal used in airsoft supressors is generally lightweight - probably similar in weight to plastic of the same dimension. Your homemade job will only be slightly lighter than a store-bought one.

Well, have fun then. Let us know how it works out for you. I hope it does, but I'm not holding my breath either on function or mostly, durability as the gun is cheap, brittle plastic and not meant to have a supressor.

But just a word of advice - when you post a plan asking for advice and a bunch of experienced players tell you it's a bad idea, usually it is. If cost is a concern to you, you've picked the wrong hobby.
