Hi there, no, I read your conversion and posted a couple of comments such as "captions on one or two of the pictures would have been helpful", but overall I REALLY enjoyed reading it and think you have done a good job. Sorry if I sounded confusing but I posted a longer version of my comments after you posted it in the first position but when it was moved my comments and questions were lost, such as what is the significance of the two threaded connectors, one having a slightly longer thread?

Thank you for the extra captions and pictures. I see you sometimes use an air stripper but wish to fit a silencer, is it the stripper that holds the barrel shroud in place, and does the shroud do anything to help quieten the shot or is it just for aesthetics?

the muzzle flip /brake air stripper or whetever it is was just somthing i had lying about its not needed for the shroud and nor is it fitted any more and the shroude was intended as purley as asthetic but im sure as its creating another barrer between the pellet and the ear i guess it may quiet it down a little but noise that comes out the end is loud without a silencer (especally when my poor mate with the daystate has possibly the quietest gun in the world when he shoots the others dont even notice...but when the spect8tre lets one go through the vally it sounds like a 22.rimfire :roll: i am open to suggestions on what silencer i should go for however price is a concern for me hence the whole build your own gladiator thing lol

Hi again, I find that the Weihrauch silencer to work quite well but from what you say you may be exceeding the sound barrier with your Spect8tre, which no silencer would quieten. Even though the sonic crack can not be reduced, the muzzle noise can still be greatly reduced BUT I do not know what power the Weihrauch is rated up to and you may be better off fitting something like a standard Parker Hale model, all steel with internal steel cups or baffles, these are not quite as quiet as some airgun silencers but are very robust and are not expensive, but if bought from a retailer must be sent to your nearest RFD I believe (If you are in the UK that is)

If you keep the pellets below 1000 ft/s you should see good results from most silencers.
