Ok, like my other post, i have a Gamo 610 springer which is classed as a standard powered springer rifle.
Being a newbie to the airguns game, i wasnt really to aware of pcp and how they differed from springers.Only now do i know more about them.
Are pcp significantly quieter than a standard powered sprnger when they have a sound modulator attached to them?
Bear in mind i have never heard a pcp being shot before(in fact i did for the first time yesterday, but without a sound mod on), hence the stupid question, but i get the idea from posts on here that it is a reasonably quiet airgun provided it has a sound compressor on, hence a good stealth type weapon to use when hunting prey in large numbers.
Is this true and how would you compare the overall difference in sound output between a std powered gamo and a low -end pcp range rifle with as mentioned before a sound compressor attached to it.
I went to check out target specialists yesterday in Montana for the first time, and got my first glimpse of the pcp for myself.
The guy fired a blank shot to give me some idea of the noise it makes, but that was without the compressor on, so oviously it was going to be a bit noisy.
The reason i ask this is cause ive got quite interested in pcp now, especially concidering they dont make that mech noise evertime you should them like springers.Its just pure compressed air technology.
You guys in the know who own one wuld be able to advice me on the sound issues, so i thought i would ask, even though it may be a slightly stupid question for u guys..please bear with me
Maybe this should have been posted in the PCP forum, but it des bear relavance to springers of which i own one so i thought it belonged here.
Thanks alot guys.
(BTW, the guy there told me like all of you advised that its not really wrth the effort bying a silencer for a springer, so point taken)
