The addition of a silencer/suppressor is something that many want to do to their replicas, however it can be confusing as to which silencer to choose from, given that there are so many on the market. It helps to first understand what gun you’re putting the silencer/suppressor onto, as that will tell you if you need an adapter or not (e.g. G&P guns use 14mm CW threads, so would need a CW to CCW thread adapter) and you can go from there. Once you’ve established a pool of silencers that will go on your chosen replica, then it’s a matter of whittling down the list based on the following: 1.) Look – no point in using it if it doesn’t look cool, 2.) Function – what function do you require? Are you looking for suppression, a tracer, or a barrel extension? Barrel extensions are the cheapest, followed by the more effective suppressors, with the most expensive being the tracer silencers, and 3.) Aesthetics of the gun – if a silencer/suppressor doesn’t match the proporitions of the gun, it just looks sort of odd i.e. pistol sized silencer on a sniper rifle won’t be a match made in heaven!
Of course sometimes you want something completely different – why make a gun quieter when you can make it louder?! Madbull’s replica of the Noveske KX3 uses the same high quality metal body found on the likes of the Gemtech series of silencers, and is finished with the same durable anti-scratch matte paint for added ruggedness. The amplifier is threaded for guns with a 14mm CCW thread, and installation is simple – all you have to do is remove your old flash hider, and replace it with this piece. The amplifer works by acting as a cone, causing the sound to reverberate louder accentuating the sound emanating from the gearbox (i.e. the piston hitting against the cylinder head). Please note that this is not practical as a barrel extension as the end is open, so you would see the barrel protrude.
