    Quick and Dirty 1/6 Silencers

    Here's a quick and easy way to make silencers:

    1. Get some plastic spacers from the hardware store (come in different diameters and lengths)
    2. Fill one end with epoxy or putty.
    3. When it dries, drill a small hole in the middle.
    4. Paint them.
    5. Slip over the end of a rifle.

    Here's a couple pics:

    I forget what they are called exactly, but you can find them in the hardware aisle at the local hardware store. In with the nuts and washers and rubber grommets and stuff.

    They alsmost look like nylon hoses. Kind of like R/C fuel line even. That is a great tip. Thanks DB.

    I don't think Ive seen those (spacers), but maybe this tip could work if you want to make shotgun shells or smoke grenades, too? Just thinking about it.
