Ear plug ;) seriously maybe you could explain what exactly is your problem with your gun. if it's a strange sound comming from the gun you will certaintly find some help over here but if it is a piece to screw on your gun that your looking for it is illegal so good luck :)

Break barrel sub 500's are about as quiet as you get in Canada. Except for the spring making noise!

Doe's it smell like burnt oil when fired ?
You may be getting some dieseling.

•Detonation!!!
This is the phase you DON'T want to be in! An abundance of fuel in the compression chamber no longer burns - it explodes! You get much higher velocities out the muzzle - and broken mainsprings, swollen compression chambers and guns that sometimes actually re-cock themselves at the other end! All combustion-phase airguns are capable of detonating, so the shooter has to severely limit any fuel-like substance that is introduced into the compression chamber.

When you hear a loud BANG! and sometimes see a bright light coming from the muzzle (flames in the barrel!), you have a detonation. Since all combustion-phase guns can detonate, the thing to do is to reduce the number of detonations to as few as possible. Just having smoke in the barrel is not a detonation, but the byproduct of a normal combustion. BB guns are the biggest combustors of all, but almost all pellet rifles and many powerful pistols are also combustors.

Convert it to gas strut.
Silencers are illegal.

Try having someone else fire the gun besides you. Most of the "noise" you hear when shooting a springer is the piston transmiting the shockwave thru the stock and thru your skull and it makes you think it's loud but it's really not.

When you say loud, do you mean loud compared to other, similar break barrels? Or does it simply sound louder than you thought an air rifle would be? All spring piston air rifles and pistols make noise which may be considered loud. It's just the nature of the gun. You will want to make sure the screws on the gun are tight. This can cause a spring piston to make noises that it ought not to.

So true Doc.
