now that i think about it (ok, was babysitting and had nothing better to do yesterday), the 32* Whisper barrels are really quiet. i had forgotten all about those. i forget how quiet mine is because the clicking of the e-frame and sliding of the bolt makes all the noise!

i made one in the 80s also. never used it. it ruined your accuracy. they had to be about 30 feet away to make a for sure kill. the most you could get off back then was 2-3 shots a second so you had to make your shots count. it was a fun idea but was useless the way we played.
there was a marker in the 80s that was not a pump. tippman SMG 62 cal. it had 4 five round striper clips. it held 20 bals at a time and shot a legal 320 FPS. just to inform.

I'm curious..........it says that a paintball silencer permanently affixed to a barrel but not secured to the gun could be used on a real gun..........anyone think they had the cajones to try and shoot led out of an aluminum barrel? I would imagine to get velocity out of a bullet it would have to be a very snug fit and with pressures to propel the round your looking at 80,000 +PSI......and you thought 4500 PSI in a tank was scary! I deem it theoretically impossible and a challenge to Myth Busters!

wrong. Your theory is flawed. The 9mm Parabellum is actuallu .381 caliber. The smallest standard paintball barrel bore fora .68 caliber paintball is what - .681 to .685? That's just under twice the diameter of the 9mm bullet so there would be no contact between the bullet and the bore (unless it bounces in there).
Unless the bullet's the same/larger than the bore diameter your challenge is busted before it hit the drawing board.
You tend to forget firearm bullets go as low as .17 cal. so it's entirely likely that the ATF can "jerry-rig" it to work. If they can, we can...thus making it illegal.

This is a non-debatable subject. I suggest you leave it that way.
