    Default PCP and noise

    Are some PCP's inherently more noisy than others?
    If you use the same silencer etc, are say a Benjamin more noisy than a CZ200 both at 12fpe?
    I got some new batteries for my ancient Combro 625 chrony last night. I could only then do some velocity test on my Kral.
    It shoots 13.43 gr JSB pellets at 782 fps at its lowest power setting. That is around 18 ft/lb. For comparison my Axor shoots at 24 ft/lb. But the Axor is so much more quiet. Is this normal variances?

    I only now realize how stupid my question actually was....
    If you take a PCP pistol with a short barrel, at 12 fpe, it will always be louder than a rifle with a 3 times longer barrel shooting at the same 12 fpe.
    I remembered now that my Ranchero was much less loud after I fitted a long rifle barrel. And that while it is shooting at higher speed as well.
    It is not fair to compare the loudness of rifles with each other if they do not have the same length barrels.
