No Sir ... just couldn't find a decibel read-out.
If you can ... post the finding.
I'd be interested - aom22.

My $.02

I use my Air Arms S400 for urban varmint control. I've done away with the factory shouded barrel, which was acceptably quiet and accurate, and use one of Mac1's HW barrels with a homebrew moderator. It shoots heavy (10.5 gr) 177's at about 930 fps with a report like a gnat fart. It also allows me to shoot in the back yard all I want without the neighbors having a clue.

I take it your backyard has a stockade fence around it, otherwise seeing a man with a gun would be a really big tip-off!!

Privacy Fence

Actually, I have a 6 1/2 foot privacy fence.
Moreover, in my neck of the woods ...
_ awww, I mean my edge of the desert.
(Pecos County, Fort Stockton, Texas)
A man (woman, teenager) with a gun is not an alien sight.

In fact, yesterday while I was replenishing my bird feeders
_ and supervising the activities of my Pekinese.
I heard a neighbor two houses west of my home,
_ shooting at doves with a BB gun for about a half hour.
By the sound of the voices, it was an adult and a teenager.
The birds were on a power line over the property of my
_ adjacent neighbor - by the way, I don't and won't do this.

My point, I wasn't startled or surprised.
But, it was a little unexpected.
And, shortly thereafter, I didn't notice any police activity
_ in the neighborhood - no one called the law.

Even so, my objective is to remain as stealthy as possible.
With this in-mind ... I keep being drawn back to the Benjamin Marauder.

Here is a picture of my custom 1377.
It works perfect for my pest bird problems.
Its can get 700 fps with 10 pumps, and virtually quiet due to the LDC.
If your interested, its for sale.

LDC: Lead Dust Collector ... Barrel Shroud or Silencer?

Thanks, but not thanks ... on the 1377 with a LDC.
I need to stay one hundred percent legal
_with any moderated airgun I plan to own.

I'm not sure a lead dust collector qualifies as a barrel shroud or is a silencer.

Multi-Stoke Pneumatic With Shrouded Barrel

Does any airgun manufacturer produce a multi-stroke or single-stroke
_ rifle, carbine or pistol with a shrouded barrel?
I've been looking and can't find anything.

Is there any air-gunsmith that is currently fabricating and installing barrel shrouds on airguns?
All I've been able to find are muzzle brakes.

Does anyone know of a air-gunsmith that performs modifications on Daisy airguns?

If you're allowed to buy a silencer for an airgun you should consider some low cost PCP airguns like de CZ200, the Hatsan/Hamerlli AT-44, the cheaper models from BSA, the FX Typhoon or the crosman discovery.
If you want a spring air gun i recomend you the Air Arms Prosport or the Weihrauch HW90 (gas ram).

Yes, I have the right to buy a silencer.
But, the cost of a quality silencer and a goverment license
_ probably would be near the price of a Benjamin Marauder.

I read through your post because I am thinking about picking up a Maurader.

I came across this and thought some fellows might find it interesting. There is a video that shows this "home built" PCP pump turned electric in action. It is pretty ingenious really.

If you have the skills/tools this might be an option for filling your rifle at home without having to pump by hand.

Edited to add that if you open the video in it's own page it plays in a bit bigger format.

I can't tell if he is selling it or if he is showing what can be done. If I end up going with a PCP I may build one of those. It is the same principle as a locomotive. His looks like it is pumping around 30 or 40 strokes a minute. Depending on how many shots between fills it would only take a few minutes to fill the rifle. This is perfect for folks that don't have dive shops or paintball shops around.

Haha! Or you could hook it up to a bicycle instead of the electric motor and get some excercise in between volleys.

That's a very simple, elegant way to build a compressor, iin action it's the kind of machine I could watch operate for hours.
