    I had built the quietest airgun at decent power (14 fpe) which was a modified Daystate MK4 in .177, now I'm hungry for another ultra hollywood quiet pcp.

    Is there anything available these days quieter than a pulsar in .177?  Or is that the quietest known as of Feb 2019?

    I shot a redwolf in 177 with a hugget. It was stupid quiet, but my fx streamline 22 with donnyfl sumo is very quiet too.

    I've tried a few different Donny FLs.  They don't work as well for me as the older Neil Clagues per my dB meter.

    The Donny FLs look amazing, and I appreciate they are easy to take apart and clean- they are just not as quiet as my Neil Clague or my own designs.

    That being said, I'll still keep a few in my collection :)

    I can get the report out of the barrel down lower with suppressors of my own design.

    I guess my real question is what firing mechanism is the quietest?

    Has anyone "heard" anything quieter than a current .177 pulsar?

    My Wolverine R .22 cal with a Donny FL Sumo is rediculously quiet for a 32 ft lb rifle.  Probably the quietest 30+ ft lb rifle I’ve ever owned.

    I'm curious if anyone can share their dB readings on a decent meter.  If you tell me the model of the meter I can have a better idea of what "quiet" is to you.

    Example, on my more sensitive meter  I got

    dB readings:

    59.5 for my ultra modified quiet Daystate MK4-motorhead modified the striker with a different material to make it hit quieter, shooting appx 14 fpe, my custom suppressor- The current owner of this can chime in if he wishes- He owns many many pcps and this is the quietest he has ever heard.  It truly is flea fart quiet.

    68.5- 70.5-74  FX cyclone .177 low med high  High was approl 16-17 fpe

    86  Evanix rainstorm .22 shooting 48 FPE with Neil Clague suppressor, 89 with Donny fl emperor, and 91 with sumo

    89 FX bobcat .30 with neil clague suppressor @ approx 78 fpe (crazy quiet for the power level)

    94.5 Evanix new Max Air Speed .22 from Jefferson State (I was dissapointed how loud this was) otherwise was an A+ rifle in fit/finish/build quality/value

    120 unsuppressed 16" barrel .22 lr rimfire with CCI "quiet" 40 gr @ 710 fps

    Neil is my neighbor and friend and I have quiet a few of his silencers. They are all very quiet but he told me the other day he is coming out with a new supressor design that is quieter than anything he's ever made. He's putting the final touches on it now. 59dB to 70dB is very, very quiet!

    The Donny FLs are sexier looking in my opinion, and it is a good feature that they can be disassembled, but, BUT, they are not as quiet as the Clagues and the performance to me is the #1 heavier weighted criteria for a suppressor.  So, as impatient as I am, when I find something worthy of the wait, I will be ordering from Neil again.  They just work better than anything else I've experienced on airguns.

    The MK4 sounds broken it is so quiet, and it is so quiet you can hear the .177 pellet zip through the air.

    Being a tuner and competitive shooter getting to handle a LOT of guns,  Still have to say the Daystate Electro guns Mk3, Mk4, Airwolf, Pulsar etc … Are really tough to beat in the Quiet potential category.  You add a PEEK contact tip on there solenoid spool / hammer and the action itself is near silent.  Muzzle report a mere SNAP that with an LDC of correct proportion to caliber makes for one stealthy PCP.

    Yes, 

     

    Scott- You added the peek to my gun and quieted it down a bit more  :0)  The quietest airgun I have ever experienced

    Now I'm looking to build another and duplicate that build.   WEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    I'm basically doing this just for fun to see how hollywood quiet I can get one :0)

     

    I just closed a deal on a Panther- It will be shipped to you asap.

    I'm STILL on the look out / WTB regular mk3 Mk4s if anyone has any at a decent price.

    Ok,

    I'm going to take that as a "No" no one has heard anything quieter than a mk3 mk4 or pulsar.
