FAQs

How Do You Attach a Suppressor to Your Airsoft Gun?

Most suppressors are attached to the barrel of your airsoft gun using a 14mm thread. This is usually the same size as most airsoft guns, so you should be able to simply screw the suppressor onto the barrel.

What is the Difference Between a Silencer & a Suppressor?

A silencer and a suppressor both do the same thing: reduce the sound of a firearm. The difference between the two is that suppressors often use internal baffles to reduce the noise, while silencers often use more complex designs.

Do Silencers Work on Airsoft Pistols?

Yes, silencers can work on airsoft pistols. They attach to the muzzle and can reduce the noise level of the gas or spring mechanism firing. However, their effectiveness varies.

Do Airsoft Suppressors Work?

Yes, suppressors do work! They enhance realism, can modestly improve accuracy by stabilising the barrel, and adds a tactical advantage by making it harder for opponents to locate you based on sound.

What is the Best Brand of Suppressor?

The best suppressor really depends on the type of gun you have, but some of the most reliable and popular brands are WE, FMA, and Modify.
