Silencer Mod Tutorial
Make it silent!
All airsoft silencers that you can buy are too easily constructed to work perfectly. I'll show you how you can mod yours silencer, almost for free. All what you need you should have in your garage or house.
Original and modded silencer's foam
Akasa acoustic absorption mat
Let's go... Start modding
At first unscrew your silencer.
Next step is preparing for cutting the acoustic mat. Put the mat on a desk and now put silencer on mat in the upper left corner. Now press firmly to extrude foam with silencer.
If done, you have one layer ready. Layer thickness is 5mm, but silencer is 13cm long, so you have to repeat this step 30 times.
After that you have 30 layers. Do not glue that!
Now take two aluminum pipes: One with diameter about 10 to 12mm, and second with diameter 15mm. We'll cut internal hole at previously made layers.
At the center of twelve layers cut a hole for BB's using 12mm aluminum pipe, do it as previously. In the rest of the layers (10pcs.) cut the bigger hole using 15mm pipe.
After that boring work is done!
Cut internal hole. Ring on alu pipe ready to glue...
Silencer mat diagram...
If done, you can put all in one. Upper diagram is helpfull, check the sequence of rings with 12 and 15mm hole. It's important. Akasa mat has glued side mat, so it's easy to put together.
Now you should have something like that:
Next step is optional, do it if you want.
Depending on what kind of airsoft replica you are using this step can helps you, or not. Check yourself!
Drilling PVC pipe...
Get PVC pipe, long as your silencer.
Using 3mm and 5mm drills make pretty much holes in the pipe. You can experiment with other holes diameters.
Now clean the holes with sandpaper, and mount pipe in absorption rings.
Drilled PVC pipe and mounted in the silencer.
