"My friend and I both bought one of these for each of us as part of a large order, needless to say I was very excited to learn that this isn't exactly a "mock" silencer, it actually tones a couple of my airsoft guns down substantially! My JG G36KE is whisper quiet from the front of the gun because of this silencer, and my Galaxy MP5K PDW that was, according to many reviewers, "very loud" is also very quiet because of this silencer. The foam padding and spring inside the silencer really does do a good job silencing your airsoft gun, so whether you're doing it for the looks or are actually trying to find something to quiet your gun down, this will do it! The only complaint we had is that his silencer was shipped with TWO Clockwise threads instead of one of each. The ends of the silencer are removable and both of his ends had Clockwise threading, so he couldn't use his. Make sure when you get it that it has a CCW end on it so you don't accidentally cross-thread your barrel!"
