I often wondered how effective an old dirtbike muffler/spark arrestor would be in that use.

I remember the "muffler" of my ancient RM125 was just a tube about .5" in diameter with holes and fiberglass surrounded by a 3" aluminum housing.

You would never be able to sneak up on anyone with that smoker but the times it fell of (Many!) it was horrifying how loud that tiny engine was.

Perhaps the muzzle-blast would pop the aluminum like a zit?

Some people are using large fuel filters...after ATF registration, of course.

A purpose built suppressor will always be more efficient...but it works.

I prefer a shrouded barrel system myself.

I sure wish the guys making videos of sound-suppressed firearms would see fit to speak concurrently while firing the gun to better convey the effectiveness of the sound suppression. Most video cameras automatically reduce sound level when it exceeds a certain threshold, which can make it difficult to know from a video how effective a suppressor might be. Including another relatively constant level source of sound would allow a better sense of how effective the suppressor is.

Agreed. With some mics you can hardly tell a difference.

There is uniform sound measurement testing of most commercial suppressors out there.

My interest in a 9mm is that subsonic ammo in an efficient suppressor design is quite quiet.

The supersonic crack, even in something as low powered as an airgun, is painful to my ears.
