    In the scheme:
    1 - Barrel of the gun
    2 - Cap of a bottle

  • Step 1

    Cut off the bottom of can. In the top of can make a big hole with diameter of barrel

  • Step 2

    Cut disks of hardboard with an outer diameter as the inner diameter of the can
    I nailed together all pieces to drill a hole in all of them

  • Step 3

    In each disk make a hole slightly larger than the inner diameter of the barrel
    The hole should be maximally circular

  • Step 4

    Put the bottle on the can and rotate it over the fire or heat with an industrial dryer (as in the topic about the gun itself).
    I advise you to do it with the barrel inside to ensure alignment

  • Step 5

    Insert the barrel and fill can with gypsum to form a layer a couple of centimeters in height. This will ensure reliable fastening of the barrel in the silencer

  • Step 6

    Divide the whole body of the silencer to the number equal to the number of partitions of hardboard. Begin to insert the partition and fix them on both sides with nails

  • Step 7

    Fold the part of the can of the last partition, and wrap the whole silencer with tape, to prevent nails fall out

    Now do holes between the partitions by nail and hammer a little smaller than mine ones.

  • Step 9

    In a cap of the bottle with a wide neck cut a round hole inside the rim. Rim diameter coincides with the external diameter of the barrel, so this cap fits perfectly on the barrel
