Silencing a pellet rifle
— Posted by Chronos on 2:33 pm on Mar. 26, 2002
hey guys, I have a crossman 760 pumpmaster pellet rifle and was wondering if anyone knew a way to silence(or severly muffle it) for a little night time recon and sniper mission.. any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

I would think that a baffle suppressor would work. maybe the one using tennis balls?

how would one go about making this baffle supressor? I had some ideas today at work that I’m going to play with probably tonight. I’ll let you guys know what I find.

As I recall you cut 3 or 4 tennis balls in half, and glue them into a PVC tube of the right diameter spaced an inch or so apart with the fuzzy side away from the gun. Then burn / cut a hole through all of them centered i the middle, for the round to pass through. put end caps on with apropriate holes and hard ware to mount it to the gun. and thats about it. the rubber balls act as baffles to slow and redirect the muzzle blast, while the air spaces let it expand. A friend of mine used a similar design on his paint ball gun, except that he ported the barrel and made it integral. It did however work quite well. check the other post on silencers for added info. Hope this helps!

Its just a damn pellet gun. I had one and it was pretty quiet. But if its recon just dont get cought. For sniper though youll need something lite-weight, easier to move and hold up.
Id recommend not shooting tell no one is around to hear it but the target. if thats not possible then i guess take as many out as u can b 4 you get cought.

just put a couple peices of cloth over the barrel,the only thing your tryin to quiet down is air.
