I did a db test with 3 balls in the marker, and it read 74, 76, 74 on the scale.. I am pretty sure it's even quietier now. pics and info to come.. If I ever get my car back.....

Took this to it's first real event, GBGXX, and it worked flawlessly.. It's much quieter than stock tm-15s too, I shot it next to a few out on the field.. Just wanted to show an updated pic of the dampening mod in my marker. I added 2 more layers of the non slip matting, and one layer of ceramic cleaning pads (thin soft red pot scrubbers) Then I added some really soft foam up top to close up the huge gap above the barrel.. I must say it looks better, and the sound is reduced greatly.. As you can see from the pics. I was able to crawl up on a lot of people at gbg and get a handful of eliminations before they could figure out where I was. them up.. I didn't get hit in the marker once that day, but I got sprayed with about 3 cases of paint I swear.
Edit; ....and I broke 2 balls all day in the barrel.. I was surprised to see only a pin head of paint made it into the shroud, but it rubbed right out of the foam, lucky me. Even if I do get the foam considerably dirty from bad paint, The initial layer I put on will pull out of the shroud cleanly, hence the reason it's down there.
