Title: Hi from New England
Post by: wwwebtrader on May 26, 2020, 11:07:23 AM
New to air gunning. Have questions about noise suppression already:

I own a Benjamin NT Varmint Rifle, Model BVNK 92SX in .22.   It has a 7/8" OD unthreaded muzzle.

 I am trying to figure out how to attach my home-brew suppressor it to the muzzle.
Any ideas will be appreciated!

Without going to the expense of having the barrel threaded, not much. It is possible, in some cases, to remove the front sight, if any, and have one made to slip over the barrel, and tighten down with a set screw. But...

Nitro-piston airguns, by their very nature, are really loud! Even the ones with built-in suppression are loud. Can't say I have heard a "quiet" one. Then, of course, you have to think about the leverage forces when cocking it with the suppressor attached.

Welcome aboard.

Springers don't do well with suppressors as the mechanical bits of the spring etc are quite loud on their own. My RWS 350 Magnum is bloody loud.

Get a PCP. Like the bumper sticker says, 'Eat Mutton. 10,000 coyotes can't be wrong'  ;D

Big bores eat air, regulated pcp's are wicked (a classic Bostonian adjective) accurate, and springers are loud. Not changing any of those soon.

Thanks, Alan
Which is the correct forum to post suppressor questions?
