"declearator" is not a word, so I'm not sure what you're referring to. There is a declarator, which has nothing to do with airsoft or guns in general. There is also a decelerator, which lowers the speed of something.

If you are referring to a velocity reducer, please let us know. A velocity reducer is typically a device in the shape of a flash hider that is designed to recude the muzzle velocity of an airsoft BB.

Darkstar out.

How exactly do the velocity decreasers work?

They work by having a rubber disk inside the unit which has slots cut into it. The BB hits the ribber disk and pushes its way through the cuts and then proceeds on its way, however, it uses up some of its energy in doing so and is thus slowed down. Theunit comes with several of these rubber inserts last time I saw one, the thicker ones obviously cause a greater velocity and energy loss, while the thinner inserts are for minor losses in speed.

Nope. It does not affect accuracy.

D-Man, I do believe you are slightly off. I just purchased one of these, to play CQB with my upgraded gun- it has four different discs to reduce the velocity different amounts. The BB does not actually hit the rubber, however. As the BB travels down the barrel it pushes air out of the way, and creates pressure. What the velocity reducer does is "reflects" the pressure back on the BB, until the BB gets close enough that the pressure breaks the seal. This pressure on the BB reduces the velocity of it, without actually effecting the BB's accuracy, or hop up. There is a very helpful, and detailed review of the product right here:

Hope that helps.

Just a lil note I think that needs to be thrown in.


There was a test of these done a bit ago, they work fine on slow semi-auto, but you start click rounds away in semi-auto pretty fast, or go to full auto, it no longer works for the exact reason as knect explains, it uses airpressure to slow it down - and when theres no time for it build between rounds, it no longer works properly, thus the second or third shot will be back upto your normal FPS, or close to it.

Hence why AO has never officially supported the use of them.

I have to disagree with some of you and the review. I disagree in the statement saying that it does not hit the rubber seal. I say this because on the lowest setting the hole that is made from the rubber "stopper" is too small for a bb to go through. If the hole is too small to go through and the bb comes out like we all agree on then at some point it does hit the rubber and pass through it. Any sort of obstacle in the way of the bb will slow it down in some shape or form.

Now what I do agree with is that the rubber ALSO acts as a pressure changer depending on the ring you use. An easy analogy would be if you have shot your gun stock and then installed a tight bore barrel you will notice that there is an increase in FPS. This is due to less air escaping around the bb. Well think of it just the opposite, if you allowed more air to escape around the bb your velocity would be lower.

All in all, I have one and am very pleased with it. I have never experienced what Foxtrot has been talking about but I can say, depending on your level of realism, only the first round counts anyway in a real CQB situation. Now if you up to playing CQB games like you would see in computer games like Battlefield 1942, then the reducer wouldn't do you justice. Try the more realistic one, you might find it fun. If you need ideas, ask. I have some personal experiences that I have come across at work that would make for some very interesting missions. My teammates seem to enjoy them.

Had a buddy asking me about these, here's the bump to bring it up.

Actually called velocity reducers...

The last post in this thread was approximately eight years, one hundred seventy four days, seven hours, and twenty two minutes old when you brought it back to life.

You, sir, are a champion of necromancy.

Sarcasm aside, these still aren't allowed in most AO's because of the reasons described so many years previously. Please check the date of the thread in the future.
