    Default Help identify a silencer

    Good day all
    I was recently given a silencer that I wish to fit on my Kral Puncher Mega, but it has no “innards”
    I know it’s a long shot (scuse the pun) but can anyone identify it perhaps, and what would I need to get it functional again..?
    It measures 170mm long with an OD of 32mm and an 8mm “outlet” bore.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    You don't need any fancy cones and dampers inside an air rifle silencer. You can use a hair curler to hold a piece a felt cloths against the wall of the silencer, but it is not going to make a huge difference. All an air rifle silencer needs is volume.

    Looks the same as the JKHAN silencer.

    What he said.

    Don't overthink it. Shove a few curlers in there.

    Evening guys
    Thanks for the responses...much appreciated. I tried a shot with the silencer "empty" and then with curlers wrapped in Scotchbrite pads, and there wasn't a huge difference between the two. Maybe create some expansion chambers using a few washers?

    Does the tapered bit on the outlet end-cap serve any function? It's making the inside of the silencer tube very small, and I can only get 1 curler in there with 20mm left over.

    That part works as an air stripper, sometimes it works, sometimes not. To help with accuracy.

    Great, thanks guys.....I'm off to the hardware store after work! Rubber/Fiber tap type washers should work too? And I guess the material used in order to space the washers should be as this as possible in order to maximize the cylinder volume?

    Hi Slashback,

    Found the picture I was looking for, I did this for a customers rifle to make it more "workshop friendly"!
    The exit hole on the air stripper is very big and allows a lot of the airstream just to punch straight out. On the 5.5 rifle I was working on I machined up two baffles and the used the curlers cut to length with the scotchbrite pads for dampening as the spaces creating a 3 chamber sound moderator, it made a big difference.

    Thanks Warrick..that appears to be the same silencer too. The washers with spacers seem to be the way to go then.

    That silencer never had baffles comes from the manufacturer like that. Waste of time trying to put baffles in it unless you do what Warrick suggests but keep the first chamber as big as possible.
