“NeilClague”I do know from experience that when you dry fire an air gun with an LDC on it, it is normally not as quiet as when you fire a pellet. I recently built 2 identical LDC’s, the only difference was the length, one was 7 inches long, the other was slightly over 8 inches long. When I dry fired my BSA with the shorter LDC on it, it was quieter than the longer LDC, however when I went to my bench and shot pellets through both of them the longer unit was quieter. Now I have no idea why this would be, why would the shorter one be quieter dry fired than the longer one? This has me slightly baffled, I do find it interesting though and would love to get opinions on why it might be so? Neil.


Hi Neil. 
I had a good chuckle at “had me baffled”…Don’t know if that was intentional or not! 
That is rather strange – Are the internal designs the same (apart from length)?
