I think there is a lot a I don’t really understand about air gun noise. It is clearly more complicated than the size of the shroud and the barrel length. The more efficient guns seem to be generally quieter. 


With the Taipan I think the Valve/hammer design has a LOT to do with it. Take notice to how you don’t hear the hammer strike like with other guns.

I did notice that. No ping, snap or thud. It also gets more shots with the volume of air than my other guns. Inefficient guns are always louder. The Korean guns like the Evanix Max ML get 20 shots per fill in small calibers and are noticeably louder than FX and Kalibrgun etc, even with shrouded barrels. That’s the valve design. 

I hope it stays quiet. Some of my other guns seemed to get louder over time.
