    I am currently trying to make a home made silencer. Ik its not actually going to work like a silencer. But i want it for looks. I plan on attaching it to my pistol barrel. It does not have threads to attach a silencer so im trying to figure out how to attach it effectively

    Last I checked, "Ik" wasn't a word, "i" should always be capitalized, and all sentences end with some sort of punctuation, typically a period. This is better, but come on, these are basic errors. This isn't a chat room or a text message with your friends. "Ik" in place of "I know" just isn't acceptable.

    Ehem, what Knief said. Also, I would measure the diameter of the flash hider itself, and when you go to making the surpressor then take that length into account. I have no personal experience with this, since I own a spear, shield, and sword so I cannot try it.

    Who are you talking to? If you talk to a mod like that then this can turn into a temp ban. I already answered so I believe you're talking to a mod this way

    Dude, follow the rules or don't ask the question. I'd say please, but I don't want it to sound like a request. If you took the time to write the question properly the first time, you'd probably have like, three or four decent answers already.

    I would like to attempt to create a airsoft silencer, but my only problem is that i am having trouble attaching the silencer to the small barrel of my pistol. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you

    Ya got lucky on that one. I never get lucky( I get lucky all the time). But whatever. You may have to custom fit your barrel to the "silencer"

    Have you tried searching youtube ? I know when I need help with something that is one of the first sites I go to.

    Anyways as far as materials go, I suggest using PVC piping. You can find it at your local harwear store. Length and width of tubing is your choice. They have tons of adapters so Im sure you could find one that you could use to attach it to your barrel. All you have to do after is get some spray paint and paint it to your liking.

    I tried this once, but I never got the silencer to fit the end of the barrel. I tried it on a Walther P99, but to no avail. If you don't want to take it off ever, then you could do what was already said with PVC and glue it to your barrel, and use boiling water to take it off. Some cheap Asian sites have silencers which can be purchased and shipped for under $10, and look much better than doing it yourself, all in all it depends on budget or personal preference.

    When making a homemade suppressor for your pistol, remember to make it thin enough that way you can still aim down the sights. I would use pvc for both an outer, and inner tube.

    I would tell you to drill holes all over the inner tube and stuff the space between the two tubes with cotton, but that would make your mock suppressor illegal lol.

    If it can dampen the sound of a real gun by a decible for one shot, the ATF considers it a suppressor, and you need the proper license to own it. It's a ridiculous law, but there it is.
