Title: Making a Sniper more quiet
Festa - May 22, 2009 10:39 PM (GMT)
Anyone know some ninja tricknologies to making a Sniper as quiet as possible? I''ve got a AKALMP Tornado valve in one of my Mechs that I was thinking of pulling and putting into my new pump. Are there any other tricks I can employ to get my gun as quiet as it can get?
Some of you guys have some really quiet Snipers so I'd love to know what your secret is =)

I hear that if you can change the springs to get the perfect balence between the bolt spring and valve spring, you can eliminate the "fart"

Going for high flow, low pressure, and a long and well ported barrel is the short answer. :)

Maybe I will get one of those Deadlywind barrels after all.

Thanks for the tips. I put in that Tornado Valve, resprung it, sweetspotted it, and it shoots pretty darn quiet now. Can't wait to try out a barrel with more porting.

There's a guy on ebay selling the Deadlywinds fibur barrels for $90 shipped I was thinking of going through him for one. It's the same from Deadlywind direct but you pay for shipping.ebay seller

a 'whoosh' barrel does wonders :ph43r:

I have a Freak with a AA front and it's made my guys nice a quiet over the years.

But it doesn't really fit with most pump kits. I think the WWA mini pump it'll fit OK or a custom whoosh which are not easy to come by but can be had for a fee ;)

ray hit it exactly, high flow low pressure with the right barrel
the deadly winds will not disappoint, hell of a barrel

Deadly winds are great barrels. I use one. It shoots very straight, is self cleaning and super accurate. But it's not the quietest. The carbon fiber tends to give it a sharper crack than an aluminum barrel.
If you run a LP/HV set-up, then a CP two piece or Dye Ultralight would work wonders. They have a good balanced porting.
Finding the right balance on your reg and valve is the real key though. :ph43r:
