Common n00bish Question: Do Silencers Work?
Answer: If they are a foam filled silencerand on an AEG or NBB, YES!!! GBB will be silenced a little but since alot of the gas is used to move the slide, alot of noise emits from that and thus cannot be silenced.
Common n00bish Question: Where can I buy them?
Answer: Foam filled silencers (or anything that reduces sound) are not legal for stores to sell in the U.S. to the general public. If you want a foam filled silencer, overseas retailers are your best bet. Silencers sold by U.S. Retailers are all MOCK and are not foam filled and will not alter sound.

Please note: Silencers and threaded barrels are not legal in any form for a civilian to own much less use. This holds true for Real Steel guns, paintball markers, bb guns and yes.. airsoft guns. You'll probably notice, not too many US based retailers will stock silencers because of this. Please use COMMON SENSE if/when using these items!
KM Light Weight (245mm, 14mm+/-)
This is my main Sniper Rifle Silencer. I chose the Light Weight version to get a little longer silencer with about hte same weight on a SOCOM one. On each end of the silencer is a different thread. + or -, which makes this easily used on a sniper rifle or AEG. It's all metal construction with a foam filled core.
AS P90 (14mm-)
Th AS P90 Silencer is designed for use on the P90 AEG. It's all metal, high quality and heavy construction with a foam filled core. I actually picked this up for me from Dentrinity during a visit to Hong Kong and hand carried it back. It's marked FN Project 90 on the side and will fit on any gun with a 14mm – thread.
Hurricane Tactical (14mm+/-)
The Hurricane Tactical Silencer is a metal, high quality construction with a foam filled core. This silencer is unique in that it came with 3 different attachments, 14mm+, 14mm- and a QD mount for the 3 claw MP5 muzzle. I bought it to use on my G3SAS which has a 3 claw muzzle, but I found out that this silelncer will not work with the G3SAS specific 3 claw mount
Classic Army Socom (14mm-)
The Classic Army Socom Silencer is a metal, high quality construction with a foam filled core. This silencer 14mm- and is the silencer I use for my handguns with threaded barrels.
Tokyo Marui MK23 (16mm+)
The Tokyo Marui MK23 Silencer is a metal, high quality construction with a foam filled core. This silencer 16mm+ and came with my TM MK23 set. It's modeled after a SOCOM silencer but the finish is a high gloss as opposed to the Classic Army SOCOM, But it works great on the NBB MK23 muffling the gun to a small "Tick". It will work on a KSC MK23 too w/o an adapter or modifications.
ICS M4 Shorty QD
The ICS M4 Shorty QD Silencer is a metal, Very high quality construction with a foam filled core. This silencer is "Quick Detach" and fits over the stock M4 Flash Hider and locks into place. Because fo the length it does not silence as much as a longer silencer, but it does cut the noise down.
JUST Delta Force Silencer ( 30mm x 110mm )
The JUST Delta Force Silencer is a metal, Very high quality construction with a foam filled core. This silencer is is 14mm+ and 14mm -. I scored this due to the $20.00 price and the fact I wanted a small silencer for use with my handguns.
