The ultimate goal is to suppress the expansion of gasses.
In laymans terms, a bullet is propelled by a small explosion. When that explosion comes out of the barrel and into the air, it makes that characteristic "BANG" noise. A suppressor's job is to capture that small explosion after the bullet left the barrel, and not just contain it, but break it up and slow it down.
This one's the best example, because it's a hybrid of different styles of suppressor. Large chambers like the ones in the back are meant to capture the brunt of the energy, and divide it up so it's not straining the outside structure.
As you can see in full "large chamber" suppressors in the bottom two, there's a lot of force that gets projected outwards as the gas expands, forcing the plastic to fail
Then the diamond pattern in the front is to break up, capture, and slow down any of the remaining gas, since it acts like a maze for the gas to get through and makes it spend more energy trying to move. The bullet travels unhindered through the hole in the center, and overall the sound is decreased. And as you can see in other designs, there are many ways to go about this sort of concept and some like to prefer only one method.
However there are many different factors to a gun's noise, so a good suppressor will never completely silence a bullet. Especially bullets traveling over the speed of sound, because they themselves will make their own "sonic boom". You also have the sound of the gunpowder initially going off in the gun.
wait arent suppressors and silencers different things?
i thought so.
whats certain is that the suppressor catches the gases. i guess basically by inducing turbulence the right way.
They are not different things, really. However, "Silencer" is a patented name for a certain brand or design, if I recall correctly.
yes you seem to be right. wiki says so.
Gas expansion is significantly slowed down. The faster gas moves through the atmosphere the louder it gets. Think of why a dynamite explosion is so loud. A lot of energy is moving very fast. But a slow burning fire does not produce the same result. Even if the same amount of energy were released by both methods, the timeframe of the release affects the 'noise' level greatly. The internal baffles keep the combustion gasses from the gunpowder from expanding and escaping the barrel as quickly as it normally does. It's almost the exact same thing as a vehicle's exhaust muffler.
I'm not an engineer or anything, just my understanding.
You are correct, it slows down the gasses and gives it more time to cool as well before it leaves the suppressor. I want to get another one but fuck those ATF wait times.
ATF a shit, my condolences.
