How To Make A Gun Silencer From Common Materials For Self Defense

A gun silencer, often also referred to as a suppressor, works in a similar fashion as does a car muffler. The car muffler is composed of chambers for the compact compression to be dispersed and the sound to be absorbed or redirected. Heat is also significantly reduced throughout the muffler component. A gun silencer works on a very similar principle. The full step by step guide to building a silencer can be purchased from GunsLot. You will learn how to build beginning and advanced silencers at all user levels. GunsLot offers a 30 day full money back guarantee.

There Are Generally Three Sections To a Firearm Silencer:

1. The first stage of the gun silencer is composed of something that will dissipate and absorb the heat rapidly. The object will also allow for part of the compression to be reduced because of the quick cooling of gases. 2. The second stage of the gun silencer consists of plastic or rubber washers or discs that assist in slowing down the bullet to sub sonic speeds. This also helps reduce compression. 3. The third and much more complicated stage of the gun silencer consists of tall wooden washers with rubber discs between them or think chambers of soft plastic. The very end of this stage has a low wear rubber cylinder to slow down outgoing air.

Silencer Construction

The whole gun silencer is contained within a one and a half inch 300 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch) plastic PVC pipe. Gun Silencer Parts list: * 1x 6-14" 300psi plastic PVC pipe * 10-15x Rubber or medium hardness plastic discs * 11-16x Soft Wood washers with 1 1/4" internal diameter * 1x Rubber cylinder * 5x Rubber discs * 6x tall wooden washers, plain * 2x steel plugs for the middle and front of the firearm silencer * 1x heat and pressure dispersement rod with positioning rings, black. * 2x stabilizer donuts to keep the firearm silencer straight, red. * 4x separator discs, green. * 1x Adapter to attach the firearm silencer to the firearm.

Instructions

Discs can be cut out with a hole saw, purchased from any local hardware store. The materials can be bought there also. Rubber or plastic can be cut out of tires or trashcans. wooden washers can be cut out of particle board. The steel plugs can be bought at any automotive store as freeze plugs. The heat and pressure rod can be bought at any metal shop; buy at 4-6 inches long Aluminium tube at about 1/8" thick with an ID (Internal Diameter) as close to the bullet size as possible. Stabilizer donuts can be cut out of birch or oak wood and then drilled with a hole drill. All discs and inserted materials except the head rod should be slightly under 1 1/2" diameter so that they will fill snugly in the tube. The heat rod should be drilled full of holes 1/4" from each end. These holes should be about the same size as the bullet. Leave about a quarter inch gap between each hole. Place a wooden donut at each end and wrap the rod in aluminium screen. Screw the rod into the wood or use epoxy. Place this part into the tube first, this should be very tight and could even have to be hammered into the tube, however do not use screws or glue to hammer it in place. Now place a steel plug in the tube so that the rounded end is facing the top or exit hole. Now place the adapter in the tube followed by the stabilizer donuts. Make sure the barrel will seat securely in the adapter and that the donuts are snug on the barrel. Make sure you place a separator disc between each stage. Drill little holes in the tube about halfway into the adapter and donuts and place small screws in place to hold them securely. Note that a small angle is cut into the adapter to facilitate the sight of the gun. The adaptor has to be reamed at an angle so that the sight will not interfere. Place a smaller PVC pipe in the front end and push the heat dispersement chamber up to the separator disc, next to the adaptor. Now from the top, place a wooden washer then plastic disc, washer, disc etc. 9mm ammunition usually requires 12-15 and a 22 usually 6-9. There should be 12-15 discs and 13-16 wooden washers, do not end up with a washer, now place another separator in place. Last you will need to insert two rubber discs and a tall wooden washer, two discs then a washer. Now place another separator in place. Place the large rubber cylinder in place, this should be about 1/2" thick. Place the steel plug in place so that the rounded end is facing outwards and rivet it into the front carefully. Before using be sure there is a clean hole all the way. Use a wooden dowel to see if the firearm silencer is lined up with the barrel hole. All inserted parts should have a hole in the center that is comparable in size to the size of the bullet's diameter.

Things you should know:

* Suppressors will slow down the bullet and cause it to defract in another direction. * Suppressors do not operate well in cold wheather but this one will for the first few hundred rounds. * If you wish to shoot full auto you must double the quantity of internal parts and use an aluminium pipe covered with neoprene sleeve, remember that metal dings. * Firearm silencers are illegal in some areas; be safe and know the firearm silencer laws in your location.

I've downloaded an e-book called silencers of the home workshop and it's crap. It's instructions and pictures are hardly related and there's no step by step. Also he only gives you one suggestion for what to use as a barrel if I remember correctly and it's really hard to obtain.

Anyways if you can figure out what to use as the barrel... it shouldn't be too hard having it drilled full of holes and threaded... but it WILL be hard figuring out how to get the outter tube of the silencer built onto the inner barrel.

For the media you can use rolled up screens (yes as in those screens behind your windows).

To slow down the bullet to below supersonic speeds... buy a spare barrel for your gun and drill a bunch of holes in it to release gasses... keep adding more holes until you reach your desired velocity.

But for typical handguns which is what I have you don't need to do that.

Guy's! get a life and don't waste time asking for photos. Any idiot who would use wood and plastic pipe to build a silencer has no respect for his life or eyesight. The pressures and temperatures involved in the detonation of a firearm cartridge are enormous. Even the top quality mil-spec silencers recognize this fact and include safety pressure relief systems on units built from machined steel. If you want to die young go ahead and build this death trap unit.

QUOTE: To slow down the bullet to below supersonic speeds... buy a spare barrel for your gun and drill a bunch of holes in it to release gasses... keep adding more holes until you reach your desired velocity.

I own a Machine shop and you can not drill heat treated hardened steel! It will burn up the drills. You have to EDM it or grind it and you do not have access to these items. And you will not slow down a bullet traveling 1000 feet per second with holes in a 6 inch barrel. Maybe if the barrel is 20 feet long, but friction would slow it faster than holes would. I have been laughing at all the ridicules processes everyone is suggesting. Also silencers are not like the movies, they do not just quietly go pop, pop, your dead, they are still very loud and will only work realistically on 22’s or a very small slow bullet. If you plan on making one for a 357 or 45 it will not work. Even a 9mm is much do loud of a bullet. And don't think the velocity of any bullet will slow down with plastic washers like the instructions say that I just read. Maybe steel would slow a bullet but it is very dangerous to obstruct any bullet at the exit of a barrel. It probably will cause back pressure and blow up the barrel. If the barrel does not explode the lead and metal will splinter off in different directions hitting you in the face.

I shot a lock once like on TV at close range and was almost blinded by the flying chunks of metal and lead! So anything in the barrel, or near the barrel, and a silencer is an extension of a barrel, will blow the barrel up with your face or cause elements to splinter off in different directions. They say a spider web in a barrel will blow it up. And if you use plastic washers to slow the bullet down even though it won’t, the silencer would only be good for one shot because the lead will destroy the plastic or metal and from excessive heat and gasses the stuff will catch fire and melt. I can see it now, Agent 86 makes the hit and the barrel explodes and catches fire! Your better off stabbing your victim to death or use a cross bow or axe!

I watched someone make a silencer in the 70’s so I know about them. And I also know this is illegal so I am not going to tell you how to make one. The Feds have probably already got all of you marked and documented because they use the internet to catch criminals like you use it to break the law. And the law states; anyone conspiring to manufacture illegal articles shall be sentence to a minimum of 10 years in Federal Prison. Look it up.

Get a different hobby. Collect stamps or become a drunk because if you get caught with a silencer, let alone making one, expect a 10 to 30 year sentence in Federal Prison! You will not get under 10 years according to the 1987 Federal Sentencing Laws established by Congress. And that is for first timers only. If you have any priors, your history! And as I said before, planning to make anything illegal is 10 years minimum for conspiring to manufacture or planning to proceed in illegal activities... And don’t expect much time off for good behavior in Federal Prison, you will only get 54 days a year off your sentence and they do not have parole anymore, you do all of your time and you may come out being someone's punk! "And like it."

So don't be stupid! I don't even look at live weapons anymore, legal or not since a friend of mine got 26 years for firearm violations and I did 6 ½ and I was very lucky because I pled guilty in State court before the Feds picked me up or I would still be in there. I just drool over them on the Internet now and it is ok to talk about them as long as your intentions are not to really make something illegal. And do not write about it if you do make one. Remember, it is 10 years minimum for the new Federal Conspiracy Laws just to say you are going to make one! And don’t buy those books! That would be the dumbest thing you could do. If the Feds get one witness that said they heard you say you are going to build a silencer, and they locate a book in your possession, bye, bye! Ten years minimum for Conspiracy. My celly got the 10 years for having instructions and an ingredient that was legal to have but because of the two items together, they said he planned on manufacturing. And writing about it on the Internet could be ingredient number one, and a book on how to make it is number two conspiracy. Any two planning occurrences is conspiracy. Two people talking about it is conspiracy also. You do not have to do it; just say you plan on doing it. That is how they busted most of the Mafia.

Go to EBay and buy a remote control aero plane and crash it in a wall! It’s the same thrill but less time..

You may think you're big cheese. But what you really are is an idiotic moron, self-rightous authority that would, if given the chance, rule control of individuals. Hey moron, got news for you, this America!! Not some communist country where your life is ruled by morons like you. People in America are free to do legal things as they please, whether to their benefit or detriment. So Don't Do It! right up your ass.

silencers

If you are a law abiding citizen you can purchase a sliencer legally. You just need a federal stamp and an in depth background check and a legitimate reason for wanting one ie; collecting. Just like you can own a machine gun if you go through the right channels. So don't be stupid.

The PVC will not explode at first but once pvc is heated to a sertan timp it will become soft and start to bend with gravity. Then try to use your cool silencer.

to build a silincer there is sam factors that you have to need to know. like any thing that you build ther is a fomula to it that you need to work out if you are rong then you are dead trust me i have seen it happen it is not a nice sight. rimmember that the bigger the bullet the more force is cuming out of your gun this is what you have to work with to small silincer and you have a bomb and a over size one will take the inpact away. i have build silencers for all tipe and size of guns hand and rifle.one said that you cant build a silencers for 9mm.308.30-06.404 or even 457 n just want to say you dont know wat the fuck you are talking about i have build silencer for all of them and work 100 persent

if you are planning to build one just dont ever use wood or plastic

Hollywood calls them silencers, if you have ever used one, you would know they only suppress the report, not silence it. There is a lot of science involved with suppressing a firearm and maintaining accuracy. There is a lot of science in using a dictionary too...

I used to squirrel hunt alot when I was a kid. I hated using a shot gun because the blast would scare the shit out of everything for a mile and I would have to wait till they calmed down to get another. A 22 can be silenced... poof, silenced.

I would get a steel pipe and steel washers, just make sure they aligned perfectly, a bullet hitting steel at 1000 fps wont be so pretty when its less then 3ft from your face.
