Both guns have been reliable and trouble free with the Obsidian with the exception of the suppressor wanting to come loose during longer strings. I have some O-rings to
hopefully help keep the suppressor where it should be the next time out.



Be careful with that, O-rings to keep a thread protector from working loose are one thing but, using that same O-ring to keep a suppressor on, could in some cases help you get a strike. Most (but not all) suppressors are supposed to screw up tight to the barrel shoulder. I recommend Teflon tape on the threads. Disregard if I misunderstood what you were saying. I've had a baffle strike and a end cap strike before so I try and jump right in there and speak up.

I sincerely appreciate the suggestion, I'm new at this and welcome the feedback.

The O-ring behind the can would be to help keep it locked up tight. It was a suggestion from a suppressor owner who had similar issues.

One other thing is that these are conjugal visits and I'm just happy to be shooting them. Definitely need to start thinking more about how make sure I'm not going to damage them while shooting them.

The O-ring is small and meant to help keep it tight. If there's a better way, I'd love to try it.

Hmmmm, also found a suppressor barrel for the M&P45 on Brownells for just $100. I just happen to have a MP45 that sits in the safe most of the time. Decisions, decisions....

I don't really call that quiet.  That sounds about like what my blackout can sounded like with factory ammo and a 9mm can on it.  I classified the sound as similar to someone banging two garbage can lids together.  And I was not satisfied with that.

If you seriously want quiet, there are a couple of designs out there that really get down into the 114's and so with the right ammo.  That's really impressive if you know that the hammer and firing pin and bolt noise is also in the mid 1teens.

If you want larger bore stuff (upwards into the 30 or 35 caliber range), there are cans and calibers out there that can get you in the mid to lower 120's.

Many recent 9mm cans are more than capable of performing in the 120's.  There are two specific ones that I've been watching closely.  One being the CGS Kraken9.  It sounds pretty dog gone good.  At least on video.



Their Nautilus45 is based on the same design.



I've got a Kraken in NFA jail right now.  Just started the wait, so 7 or 8 months before I'll be able to bring it home >:(

Congratulations.

The kracken is definitely in the top 3 of the most quiet 9mm cans I've ever heard.  Probably #1 where detachables are concerned and we're not talking about integrals.

Every review I've seen, they sound great.  And for $365 when they were blowing out the ZEV branded ones, I couldn't resist. 

I'm about five months into a SIG 762 can also, hopefully the shutdown won't be long lived, and they will get back to working on processing forms.  One of these days maybe they will get the form 4 wait back down to a more reasonable time frame.
