I have had one of my mad thoughts and in my deranged brain, it made perfect sense to fill the stock of my striker to reduce the volume of the shot or namely the resonance that occurs after the shot. Now luckily my last remaining brain cell decided to put up a fight so here I am before I go and ruin my rifle. Has anyone ever done this to a rifle and if so what effect, if any did it have on the rifle and would it be worth it? I have heard of people doing this to VSRs but not sure if it would be effective on the striker. 

Many thanks 

My last brain cell

Yep it would work, BUT you'll need to ensure that every part of the gun/stock that you don't want it to stick to is covered, either tape or some kinda grease to stop adhesion, maybe tape everything & then smear grease or Vaseline on the tapes surface, & be prepared for a lot of trimming etc cos it expands/sticks like a motherflucker.

...and use a bit at a time.  I can imagine if you fill it too much in one go it may crack the stock as it expands.

Don't do it!!!

It works but it's messy as hell.

 

Cotton wool is a fantastic substitute. In many ways it can get into places you wouldn't be able to put expanding foam. It's filthy cheap as well.

Why not as steve says just stuff it with wool? At least its non permanent

Hummmmm the cotton wool is a very good idea

Cotton wool is cheap and while it takes longer you can be more sure you got the whole cavity stuffed. 

 

Bonus extra flammable if that lipo goes up.

But yes, cotton wool is much better, and as a bonus doesn't come covered in warnings saying how it causes cancer, like the expanding foam does.

another plus is if you don't get on with it, you can still use it to take your make up, I mean camo cream off 😜

I just cut up a load of packaging foam and stuffed it in there, does make a noticeable difference

If in doubt, silicone sealant it out.  That's a favourite for glooping inside motorcycle handlebars to reduce vibration.

 

It's also denser than foam or fluff so might help to balance your totally realistic imitation precision firearm.

Ok, so I have just finished stuffing my stock (coincidencly the name of my latest porno 😁) and it does make a substantial distance for the price. Rather than reducing the sound it reduces the sound after the shot to the point where it only makes a subtle thud. Hopefully after I get the suppressor it will be perfect

I used pleated cotton that I got from Ocado, which I fluffed up and pushed in to the stock with a long screwdriver
