1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Not really, they don't have any where that you could mount one as the barrel is recessed into the slide,they aren't too loud though .

    I've seen a home made one before, I think they used the body of a marker pen. Can't remember which forum though - probably the chinese one.

    Barrel is easy to remove so you could buy a barrel and have it turned to fit but.....probably cost more than a new pistol and as above they are already quiet. Mine is as quiet or even more than most of my silenced pistols

    Mind you, sometimes you put a longer barrel on just because it can be done :)

    I was having a look the other day and I'm pretty sure that if you had a silencer fitted, it would foul on the trigger guard as you cocked the pistol

    I know this post is oil, but to answer your question, yes.. it just takes one tiny adaptor that can easy be obtained @ a hardware store. Pyramid Airgun sells the Benjamin Train NP2 "baffel system", only piece missing is the external housing, but you can easily get a PVC pipe, paint black, and use it as the shell. They just have the internal part, threaded on one end to fit to a barrel. I purchased one, then I believe it was a male to male 1/4" or 3/8" air hose fitting, the baffle screwed on to it, the PVC pipe over it and I used aquaseal to bond in place, but permatex or another gasket material / glue will work, just be neat about it. Then I recommend you tape the plastic end of the Beenman P17 barrel and thead in the adaptor, then your suppressor! My friend just forced his adaptor in using a socket wrench and until it created threads, but a tap is more accurate in lining it up perfectly straight.

    Note.. I made (2) previous suppressors / silencers for this P17, one was just PVC piping about 1 inch / 1.25", then a piece of thinner walled PVC pipe that just fit inside the barrel opening, but did not overlap the .177 caliber barrel, I drilled several small and large hole in the PVC internal piece, used foam spong material, used a dremel tool to modify the end of the larger PVC pipe just to slide over the barrel, drilled two holes to keep it stable using allen tightening bolts to hold secure and high-density memory foam @ the end and firmly adhered it in place, and it worked fairly well, could easily tell the difference. Second one I used took much more time, I basically did half 1/3 of it like the first one, but the other 2/3's I used a "baffling system" instead of sound absorbing material only, the baffling system works better to me, it's offsets the air in a different direction in each individual baffle chamber. Since I did not have access to actual suppressor baffles ( atleast not cheap ones ), I once again improvised be using "PC heatsinks" and "Graphics Card Heatsinks" and using the aluminum finds to make my own baffling system. They were then and it took time to drill the holes like I wanted in the tubing to correspond to it's baffle, then finding a dependable material to adhere the thin aluminum baffles on, which was a combo of a plastic welder, heat the plastic and pressing the baffle slanted halfway into the PVC pile and letting it cool, then using AquaSeal or another strong adhesive to secure, now it works even better.

    But I believe the NP2 Trail Baffle would do great, Crosman using that baffle system too .. and they have a new SRD Suppressor on their NP2 Elite models.
