What's the difference between a silencer and a moderator?

A silencer is a muzzle device that reduces the volume of an air gun shot. They can also reduce the recoil of an air gun. Silencers, also known as sound suppressors, are unlikely to completely reduce the noise of an air gunfire to silence, so a moderator is a more appropriate term as it modulates the speed of the fire.
