Supperssors/Silencers

I have been looking at getting a suppressor for a while now. My main issue is, for my first can, I want something I can use on MOST of my guns. My main concerns are I have a home defense 9mm PCC that I would like to suppress, but I also hunt with a rifle that takes 6.5 Creedmoor and like to do range time with my AR. So
>need 9mm compatibility
>need to take rifle pressures without exploding

Are there really any options? Or am I just going to have to buy two cans?

Goal is to eventually buy multiple cans, but I'm just starting out and want to get a jack of all trades can.

    Then just get a 9mm can that takes boosters, why the frick do you want to get a GP can that's shit at everything when you're planning to get several anyways.

      Frankly, because I don't know WHEN I'll be able to get another can.

      Goals and reality won't always match up unfortunately.

        What's the rush? Just save up for a new can until you're ready for something that's better for 6.5 Creedmoor.

          My buddy has a 7.62 can and I shot my 6.5 through it and it was a great difference. I had just been doing some research and wanted to see if there was a 9mm can that could do rifle pressures.

          I didn't expect it to be as good but wanted to explore all options before I had to delegate myself to waiting frick knows how long to buy a second PCC can.

        This sounds like a waste of money. Supressors generally make shooting less enjoyable. I'd prioritize your defense firearm, then buy the fun ones later.

            what about shooting do they make less pleasant?

            Only own a 5.56 can (mini2), so I cant speak for .22/pistol/large cailber sups. The mini2 is neat and all for "practical" purposes, but gas and the extra weight are definitely downsides.

                If I'm at a range shooting paper then why the frick would I add a pound to the front of my rifle. If the goal is pure shooting enjoyment, you're better off without one (on an ar).

                This is the post you're responding too. Reducing dbs to near safe hearing levels (i.e., you need ears) in exchange for adding a pound to the front end of your rifle and gas to the face. I like my can, but im not going to pretend that it's a game changer.

                You plinking out a mag or two at paper isn't even recreational shooting and, for whatever reason, you have not fixed the gas seep at the charging handle yourself with rtv or bought one that fixes it for you

                You're the moron who brought up shooting paper at a range in order to make a cliche argument about fitness. Apart from random shooting sessions on the farm, the only time I shoot is in competition. Idk what point you think you're making. Apart from dB reduction (which certianly doesnt matter if youre shooting alot because youre going to be wearing ears), cans make shooting ars worse.

              If I had any complaints about my one silencer for my 10/22 it'd be length which I can solve by buying a TacSol SBX barrel if I wanted to. Weight? I mean mine only weighs 5oz but I never noticed it and I often hunt sun up to down; my scope probably weighs more. The point of impact shift from putting it on my gun does suck but I never shoot it without so my scope is always adjusted for it anyways. Get one for your .22 and you'll probably have a massive difference in experience shooting.

      That's fantastic news tbh. Hadn't heard that.

      But my issue is that I can really only afford one can right now, which is the reason for my question.

      What about forms submitted during the waiting period of another form? Anyone with half a brain cell would see it's better and more efficient to do that but I don't believe the ATF is.

      The LGS told me that if I bought another suppressor halfway through they wait period, there was a solid chance they would get batch approved; didn't happen.

      The gAyTF is terrible and should not exist, those responsibilities should go to the Sheriff and the gAyTF disbanded.

        Yes, they do batch everything sometimes. I had a form 4 "approves in 48 days" and so did a friend (61 days) because I had a regular 200 day one and they both got approved together.

        But afaik it's not official policy and they make no promises, kinda luck of the draw. I don't know if anyone has ever figured out any pattern to what gets batch approved and what doesn't.

        I had two form 4s approved together once, both through the same SOT, one at 9 months, one at 5 months. Both were paper filed. Efile form 4 was brand new, so the SOT refused to do it.

    A can that can really bring down a 6.5 Creedmoor's volume is going to be very large and likely in 6.5 to 7.62 caliber. A 9mm can will let a 6.5 pass through it, but isn't designed for anywhere close to the pressures. So now you need a can that is designed for 6.5 Creedmoor pressure and can pass 9mms through. What is that like a .338 Lapua suppressor? 45-70?

    You might want to start with a rifle rated suppressor that can shoot both 6.5 creedmore and 5.56 (if you get a .308 suppressor that can handle 6.5 creedmore pressures you can shoot the two rifles you already have and in the future be able to shoot .308 and .300BLK) and in the future get a pistol suppressor.

    Pressure/caliber ratings are mostly a meme that the industry abuses to deny warranty claims and cover their asses.
    By the time your 6.5 gets past 16+ inches of barrel, the pressure will be lower than that of a 9mm pistol.

    SiCo 36M covers your need but I'd just recognize right now that you're going to end up owning many suppressors and you may as well get the waiting done now. Buy a can specific to each use case instead.

      Some more info... If you decide to be smart and buy specific cans for each use here's some advice:

      1) 6.5 hunting - Look at TBAC. You can custom order Magnus drilled in 6.5 bore size to drop a couple decibel but still get access to their new brake system. Or you can go super light weight with a 5" non-braked can to take the edge off (shit doesn't get lighter throughout the hunt).

      2) AR - I've been really enjoying my SiCo velos. I had a really gassy untuned MK18 I put that one on and I barely get a wiff of gas during mag dumps now. Lots of things to consider though, do you use nods, weight, barrel length/robustness, etc...

      3) 9MM PCC - Don't expect Hollywood quiet no matter what you do. You didn't say what it is but if it's a straight blow back action it's going to have a ton of port pop regardless of what you do so I'd focus more on light weight and maneuverability than straight DB reduction since you won't get "silent" regardless. Look at lightweight "K" cans on the market. Ideally go shoot some first (ideally with a friend that owns them but most people don't have that sort of friend so look for an event in your area where the manufacturers come out and let people shoot their shit all day.

        also, buy a rimfire can, they're tons of fun and quiet, particularly on a bolt action rifle.

    I've been happy with my Silencerco Hybrid 46.
    The end caps are not cheap (@$80-90 each)
    5.56 NATO: 130.4 dB, 300 BLK: 123.7 dB, 308 WIN: 136.4 dB
    300 WM: 142.1 dB, 338 LM: 146.5 dB, 9MM: 125.7 dB
    45 ACP: 130.8 dB, 458 SOCOM: 138.3 dB, 45-70 GOV: 140.6 dB
    But I also use dedicated cans for 9mm and 22LR, hoping to buy only two more dedicated at 5.56 and 7.62, then no more new guns or cans for at least a year or so.

      if you got a tri lug mount I gotta speak highly of the GSL Pheonix. evidently it can work with 300blk if you use subsonics only on it, but as far as something that can take 9mm AND something a lot more potent like the 6.5 you might be hard pressed as per if you're buying a few anyways.

    Don't make this novice mistake. Buy a silencer for the gun you want to shoot suppressed most, then buy more from there. Multicaliber silencers suck at every caliber except their maximum diameter and usually are significantly over heavy.

    In the long run, dedicated cans are going to be a way better option.
    Multi-cal cans end up being a pain in the ass between needing to swap pistons, boosters assemblies and end caps around for changing calibers.
    Also they end up being too big and heavy as a pistol can, and have worse performance for smaller calibers versus using dedicated cans.
    My first can was a SiCo Hybrid 46 which I wanted to try out on a few guns, but I mainly bought it with the intention of having something rated for .45-70
    I did use it with my 1911 and Mark 23 and it felt like I was hanging a brick off the end of them.
