    Is there anything much quieter than a Marauder for back yard shooting? Thanks.  Brian Smith <><

    yes a marauder with an extended baffling system
    joking there really is a few air riffles that seem quitter then the muradr but it depends on the sound your getting 
    ​most ldc are guns with like a hugget or an extra screw on if the noise your getting is more from that hammer idk what to tell ya contact ajshoots he know best about those things
    ​I have a .25 call with a screw on ldc made by WAR and the gun itself is more then backyard friendly its more the sound of hitting the targets my neighbors hear then anything

    Thanks Friend.  
     I have a 25 cal marauder coming and plan to get the 177 for the most neighbor friendly.  I have never heard one in person.  Brian Smith <><

    The .177 is quieter than the .25, but that doesn’t mean the .25 is loud by any means. With aftermarket anti hammer bounce parts like a no bounce hammer or ssg, these guns become ridiculously quiet!! A good LDC can help as well, but what little noise you get from a stock gun is mostly wasted air.

    Iately my neighbors dog has taken to use my yard as a preferred pooping area.  I discovered a very silent weapon at Walmart, a slingshot.  That device combined with 25 cal steel shot has proven effective as well as back yard friendly.  Down side is accuracy is little better than minute of Lab at 25 yards.

    I work hard to keep our lawn looking nice and well groomed in the summer.  I had a bit of a problem with the local dogs all deciding to use a spot in my lawn for their droppings.  Seems they run right over and sniff for the other dogs then do their nasty stinky deeds. I tried just running over it with my mower and next time I go to get my mower out of the barn it smelled so bad I gagged.  I tried picking it up with a shovel and that gagged me as well.   A BB gun and asking the neighbors who “I saw” their dogs do it, and ask them to come pick it up solved my problem.  Last summer they learned and went way out around our lawn when passing by.  No such thing as a dumb dog.  Smile.  Some folks say the rain will wash it away.  Not when you have two or 3 coming almost every day.  Oh, And all my neighbors still love me.  Brian Smith

    FX Royale 500 in my living room with the shot out the window, the shot noise 84 dB and shoot JSB king 270 m\s, Cricket .22 under the same conditions is 89 dB (262m / s).

    Cal .25 to 65 joules is quieter than a cal .22 with almost 40 joules.

    Hatsan QE series are very quiet. I shot a .22 yesterday that was quieter than opening a can of Coke.

    At the risk of starting an argument , My 22 mutant was so quiet when I first shot it I thought air guage was wrong. The Marauder is kind of a standard for quiet . Deping it , and install hammer bounce kit and it’s very quiet .
    You can find a few guns that are quieter , but it’s a double in price type of step up . I installed a Tim Hill baffle kitin my 25 Mrod . Helped without adding length to shroud

    My Brocock Contour S6, with a Clague Moderator, is whisper quiet. You hear the hammer strike and the pellet hit. Its .22 and deadly accurate. Its so quiet it sounds like its broke.
