The word silencer is synonymous with the word muffler. No rational person will say that a car engine is noiseless when equipped with a muffler or silencer. There is no reason to object to using the word silencer for a gun muffler just because noise is not eliminated or silenced. Gun owners are our own worst enemies when they proclaim that silencer is an inappropriate word to use. A silencer suppresses noise.
