LoL, no wonder it is louder than you expected a silencer to be!! I have never seen an HW100 that did not have a threaded barrel, maybe some markets don't allow this so versions like yours are produced for that market?
Anyway, yes buy an adaptor to mount a silencer, a 16mm one should be ok, it wont wobble once tightened, but it will be a smidge off centre, this wont matter as the silencers have enough clearance to be used on larger calibres and I have seen barrels with the bore offset by more than that dia difference.
The Theoben Rapid has a 15.8mm dia barrel, I wonder if a slip on adaptor from one of those would fit?

As it's easy to remove the barrel why not get it threaded with a 1/2 unf thread
Easy enough to get done and no worries with an adaptor then

Do you know anybody in the midlands that comes recommended? I have seen one for 65, but it is 2 hours away.

If it was closer, I would prefer to drop it off, rather than having to pay for it's return via RFD.

I'm not from the midlands area,perhaps someone local to you could help out?
Most local engineering companies can do the work I've found
