I've got a few BOA Concealers and they are great barrels and cool "period" pieces. I've also got a couple old TASO "raincovers". However, you can get just as quiet (or quieter) with a heavily ported barrel (ie. SP All American).

Phantom


Montneel Mega-Z (offered as a factory upgrade at the time)


Spyder


TASO

Mine's been modified...the SILENCER portion of the barrel was removed, not by me. I'm going to see if I can adapt it to another barrel.

I made one before that worked pretty decent. I made it with baffles and expansion chambers at the ends, and used an old Nasty Boys pod as the outside cover. The baffles were made from Scotch Brite pads and foam. It worked, but was impractical for play. I got all the ideas for it from a book you used to be able to get from the Army called Sigh-lens-hers; Principals and Evaluations, where they tested different designs.

Even though it worked it wasn't much better than a good ported barrel and certainly more of a P.I.T.A. to carry around, and these days I kinda like the loud boom from my Nelspot and my PGP.

A guy I used to play PB with made some raincovers that worked great, even in warm, dry weather...

He used pieces of sweatshirt for the packing. The Hastings used cotton balls.

I used to have a BOA on a Mag, it didn't seem that quiet to me although I was never on the recieving end of it. I used to have a TASO raincover on my PMI-1 back in the day. Unfortunately my wife tossed it out along with a box of black tubes because she thought it was "junq". I couldn't blame her, I wasn't playing paintball at the time and they just sat in the closet. I'm sad now.

A Hastings "raincover" I picked up early this year.

And yes, that is the CCI cf barrel behind it.
