    How to build your own:

    • Fabric: http://shop.hobbylobby.com/store/item.aspx?dep=85&ItemId=113851
    • Curlers: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10319770
    • Starting from the real muzzle
    • Check each stage with a flashlight looking down the tube.
    • Roll each curler in the fabric SEVERAL TIMES (2-4), fairly tight.
    • Insert this into the Talon SS tube. It must feel nice and snug without being too tight, remember you want the option of removing it, and it needs to be thick to absorb the blast.
    • To stop the fender washer rattling against the tube; wrap the outside with electrical tape. You’ll need small V cuts in the tape to prevent bunching. Thanks to SAVAGESAM for this suggestion.
    • Add the wrapped 1″ OD Fender with 1/4″ opening.
    • Repeat the above for each chamber.
    • Add the muzzle end cap.

    Please note: Check your local city, county, state, and country’s laws before assembling or building a silencer.

    Wouldn’t some black electrical tape wrapped around the outside of the washer work too?

    I tried that but the radius caused bunching. Maybe I could have wrapped it a different way. I’ll update my post with a suggestion for alternatives.

    Take a pair of scissors and cut small, short “V”s in the tape on both sides before you use it.

    Approx 1″ length curler and a 2.5″ length curler end to end, no washer!

    Have you tried it with a washer between those two? I assume you did and found its better without?

    A couple of simple tips that may help those making shrouds from the copper pipe couplings and washers: Use un-stretched black electrical tape to increase the outer diameter of the spacers and if you can, cut the couplings in half so you can add twice as many washers. Then if you use a small and large ball-peen hammer and something to support the washers, you can deform them into a slight cone shape vs flat surface. Just a few observations from what I saw in the pics above. 🙄

    For any that are doing the copper fitting and washer mod I found something better. Originally I cut the unions in half to double the chambers. But today while at ace hardware I found a bag of copper crimp rings the fit the frame better than the straight copper and are an 1/8 inch in length. Which allows for alot of chambers…

    My gun was pretty quiet before and is quieter yet after throwing these in, take it for what it’s worth.

    I have a stock talon ss in .25 caliber and I am using the pex crimp connectors with larger hole washers ( because of .25 caliber ) and the o-rings. I have tried several different combinations and the gun is still way too loud. I will try to vent my frame and the 1st barrel bushing soon and see if that helps any. If this doesn’t work I guess I will try the hair curler method.

    I tried hair curlers wrapped with scotchbrite. Within 3 shots, the dern thing sucked various parts in. Shot 3 annihilated everything even leaving the muzzle crown packed with lead and other garbage. No damage to frame; cleaned the barrel saying a prayer.

    Found some pics in a UK forum by a user called “bodhisdad” where he rolled up hardware cloth (aka, coarse screen) as the absorbers and said they wouldn’t get sucked into the flight path.

    Tried that today and it works for me. Barrel still groups; shot one group of 5 shots 3/8″ CTC at 35 yards so I think it is ok.

    Possible limitations: I used a TT modded Talon tank today. I also have a TT modded high flow tank and have not tried that yet. So I don’t know if this baffle stuffin’ will self destruct with the high flow tank or not.

    Front bushing and frame are vented. I think it is pretty quiet; it got rid of the lower frequency “boom” of the washers and springs alone. Is higher pitched now.

    The rabbits think it is quiet… that is, after a full afternoon and evening of shooting, I found a rabbit sitting 25 feet from the other side of the house like nothing was going on. The furball actually looked quite relaxed… until I shot its furry ass.

    I don’t have any pics of the latest baffle. If I stumble over bodhisdad’s post again, I’ll pop a link in over here.

    Quiet shootin’,
