You can get a different barrel..
but for the most part you cant, Silencers are illegal so you cant actually put on a silencer

I beleive that with a barrel kit, you can get a quieter shot due to a good paint to barrel match. Realistically I doubt there is alot you can do to quiet it down significantly. The MR series are just L O U D. Its part of their signature on the field. It is somewhat intimidating when it fires do to that (so I have been told by others on the opposite end of the field from where I am positioned). If you wanted to spend the money...going low pressure would no doubt quiet it down as well...but I am not certain on this. Perhaps someone who has this conversion could chime in????

I haven't low pressured my MR2 but I did another Spyder of mine and it quieted it a lot. Low pressure setup plus a new barrel will do wonders, however, it isn't cheap to go low pressure.

A barrel with more porting, will alow it to be quiter.

thx for the advice...
i was thinking about getting the S2 ceramic from j&j
I've switched to a 14" J&J ceramic, its a LOT quieter now, so go for it.

Defintely go Low Pressure.
I just finished doing it on my MR1 by installing a CP regulator and a Maddman valve. It went from 105 DB to 75 DB measured at 5 feet away.
I also installed a 14" Thunderpig Quite Barrell and that reduced it down to 70 DB.
I'm operating now at 325 psi and shooting at 280 fps.

Instead of buying a barrel with more porting, try making more on the stock barrel. idk if it will work tho. just a suggestion

I use a 20" J&J on my MR-1, and it's very quiet. I also have my CO2 pressure regulated down to 500 psi. This helps too.
