.177:

If you have fat fingers like me, you will appreciate these tools. They work very well.

Regards,
Richard

Something like that would be awesome for my Buckmark break barrel pistol!

Hi, I saw this interesting item on eBay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/crosman-MONOCORE-ldc-1377-2240-2250-2400kt/182879218523?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

It's called an LDC (Lead-Dust-Collector)  (7+" (7+" (7+"

The rules on these devices is iffy considering the strict federal suppressor rules. It's made of plastic where it couldn't be used on a firearm and pellet guns aren't considered firearms by the feds. I understand that Crosman made these devices, but got scared off by the feds. See:

https://www.google.com/search?q=crosman+monocore&tbm=isch&source=iu&pf=m&ictx=1&fir=89Z0rLGk6dfeCM%253A%252CS_xU595n5AEkfM%252C_&usg=__19d0Owrjcm_vEvW1tWCY8v-ebAY%3D&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj1kNOg-7vXAhVCJiYKHSapBuIQ9QEIKjAA#imgrc=89Z0rLGk6dfeCM:

Who ever said that pellet guns were dull?  L@J L@J

Richard

Hi, I tested the sound level from both a .177 and .22 Crosman 2240 with a 10.1" barrel using this device:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/crosman-MONOCORE-ldc-1377-2240-2250-2400kt/182879218523?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

A sound level meter was used to test the sound level one foot from the muzzle using this sound meter:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M67N973/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The results:
.177 without Monocore = 109dBA
.177 with Monicore = 102dBA
.22 without Monocore = 109 dBA
.22 with Monocore = 105dBA

I'm a bit disappointed in the results, but know that a 3dBA reduction is half the sound power. Using the Monocore does reduce the perceived sound level, a good thing.

BTW, the pellet impact sound on the backstop measured 90dBa 30 feet from the muzzle close to the backstop.

I have seen reports of other sound reducing devices where the sound reduction is much more. Maybe the low cost of the Monocore is consistent with the low price?

Inquiring minds needed to know.

Regards,
Richard

have you tried to diesel it?

Regards, Richard

Will dieseling jack up the gun?  I understand it will mess with the seals and gaskets.  I've not tried that on the Umarex Browning Buckmark here; it's too much fun to risk any damage.  What’s the view?

Hi G Dog, I just noticed your post. IMO worst case is that you need to replace some of the o-rings and seals. However, even with dieseling nobody will turn their pellet gun into a .44 Magnum.  ;)

If I still had a air gun I would give it a try. I gave my pump Crosman to my son-in-law. I'll have to see if he will give it a try.

Regards,
Richard
