As to your question about the loudness... without a shrouded/baffeled barrel, yes, they do sound much like a 22 rimfire. Especially if it is a .25 caliber airgun. Take the shroud and baffles off of your Marauder some time and fire it. Even though it is shooting around 850 to 900 FPS it will still be loud. I have a EunJin Sumatra 2500 Carbine in .25 caliber and it doesn't have a shroud of any kind on it. It shoots around 950 to 1000 FPS with a 35.8 grain pellet and it is just as loud as my .22 LR rifle.

I have the Airforce Condor in .22 and .20. Yes they can be as loud a regular rimfire if your don't get a sound moderator for it. Talon Tunes makes and sells these for about 200 bones. Makes the condor very quiet in comparison. The thing I like the most if regulated the accuracy of these rifles is deadly. With the Etac air reg it is easily possible to shoot dime sized groups at 75 yards to 100 yards. This is shooting a 21 grain pellet. This rifle has awesome power and will easily go through 6 1 gallon water jugs.

I believe that the Penal Code, where it lists silencers being a Felony to possess, is only related to Firearms, to which i don't think air guns is applicable.
(See 33410 California Penal Code, Part 6, Control of Deadly Weapons, Title 4, Firearms)
Not being at all familiar with the airguns in question, are these noise reduction devices adaptable to a firearm?
Is there another section out there?

That makes for some good reading. Like I said, I did not know anything about these "moderators" for airguns.
Too bad that the test case was against a convicted felon. I wonder if it would have ended differently if it had been a non-felon.
Thanks for the clarification

Some people call them LDC (Lead Dust Collectors) when they are used with airguns so that they do not have to use the evil word "silencer". One has to be careful when a they say "if they can take it off of the airgun and fit it to a firearm". A hacksaw can remove just about any metal or plastic accessory and then you would be doing time in the BIG HOUSE with Bubba. It pays to error in the side of caution when you live in an anti-gun state like California.

I see a lot of videos of people turning car oil filters into silencers so you could possibly get arrested for having extra filters in your car
