I finally got my coaxial working and I had a question... how can I silence this god awful noise coming from the exhaust port on my quick exhaust valve? The first thing that comes to mind is earplugs... but.. I don't know. A different fix would be better. I thought about attaching a length of pipe, but that'd be kinda odd. Plus you'd have to take it off every time you move the gun. Heh you could shove some paper down or a small spud chunk and it'd be like a double barreled gun hehe.

makes a deafening pop sounds because the air is emptied so fast, which makes all of the neighborhood dogs bark. Would you be willing to make a silencer? I dont even know if coaxials work with silencers. Im bust eating cookies so im gonna be done now

...do keep in mind that any silencing device will represent a flow restriction. Flow restrictions will slow the operation of your gun. So, what's the point of busting your ass for a fast valve if you're just going to slow it down again?
