    I think Boondock wants to turn his Talon into a 50cal!

    it is not going to work very well i think...not enough muzzle blast from an airgun to vent enough gas thru those big holes to reduce flip.

    A lot of the guys in America had these sort of fittings on the end of their barrel.

    Makes a right noise if you ask me

    i guess the design should be shift the noise towards the shooter but quiter for the target area.

    Hi Boondock,

    are you trying to reduce noise or pellet flip? ie making a silencer or stripper? that thing, and I am no pro but, I believe that will not work on an airgun. That shape is to reduce recoil on large cal rifles. If something it would work better the other way around.. and the space between the segments are to big also. for airgun should be maybe 2mm. must be shorter than pellet anyways..

    JTK,

    Sorry mate, but in the mechanics of spring loaders, the 'noise' and pellet noise discharge is often confused...the spring piston is the culpable party here...having a sound moderator on a springer is an aesthetic excercise at best, at worst, just add 400 g of weight and maybe some improve balance to the air rifle.

    I think Boondock simply wants a design center piece for discussions amongst his mates to remark upon as they drink their beers...no problem here..as It is a ' customization excersize'...BUT I agree with you It will serve no purpose whatsoever in the pellet & sound sound dynamics , NOR REDUCE RECOIL on a .177 or .20 .

    Boondock, you know the power level you are shooting at and you know that there is a lot of excess air going to waste so i think this might help a little to settle things down.Make a mini version keep us posted. I think it will look wicked with the muzzle suppressor and the sniper grip.

    JG, there are some of the higher end springers that does indeed benefit from a silencer, including all other tuned springers. Not that much a difference but enough to help you shoot without the disturbuing neigbours etc.

    Yes I must say, If I take my springer and fire it into the ground with the muzzle say about 15cm from the ground then she is much quiter. Almost sounds like a silenced rifle. But when firing at distance she has a distinct report. nothing like diesel etc but a definate report. And no I am not talking about hitting the target. My target is paper on layers of carpet backstop. So my thoughts was to add some sort of silencing when I make my new muzzle brake for the CFX. I aggree though that in general the silencer for a springer is not gonna be as effective as for a pcp/co2 because of the piston noise.
