Re: SilencerShop and Liberty Suppressors calling it quits!

MAP is MAP, minimum advertised price. You can sell for less than MAP, you just can't advertise for less than MAP. Do you have examples of SS advertising at less than MAP? Brent at Liberty (and Henry at Rugged) don't approve of the "login to see our super special price" workaround for MAP, and speci...

Or just don't like the practice regardless of what you think MAP means. It really depends how their contract reads.

Re: Can for FN Five-Seven

IIRC silencerco told my friend that if he planned to do more usage on his 5.7 that they recommended the Spectre II. It does tone it down nicely.

20" Rossi 92 in 357/38

I use my Osprey, Octane, and HTA Guardian on it at times.

Re: Would a 6" Sparrow make the Spectre obsolete?

I've seen and heard Liberty's Kodiak Ultra, Spectres, Sparrows, and other cans on a whole myriad of 22 hosts. I'm coming to the point that I think there is simply a level of "bullet noise" that can't really be brought down any further holding bullet size and velocity constant. Even very long barrel ...

Re: 9mm can

As for suppression, between the Octane and Tirant they are really about tied. Meter numbers change with ammo, temp, and elevation. The averages between the two could be higher or lower than the other on any given day. Have you shot an Octane9? Have you shot a Tirant9? Have you shot a Mystic? Have y...

Re: My first can Question

44spl is really low pressure, I would feel safe shooting it through a Tirant

44magnum runs fine through my Osprey and Octane on a 16" barrel, so I imagine the Tirant would be fine

Re: 9mm can

The Tirant excels because as marcus99 said "quietness and lightweight". The TiRant is takeapart, it is quiet (last I saw more quiet than the octane), and lighter than the Octane and the Mystic. I own both the Tirant and the Mystic, while you can use the Mystic on a pistol, and it's not bad, I bough...

You'll never need to clean it, but you can have Silencerco clean it for free if you feel the need to in a few years. If you ...

Re: Suppressor on a Glock 42

I made the barrel from a left over stub off a 9mm blank. It took several hours to make the hardest part was cutting the lug on the bottom of the barrel. The DeGroat Nano silencer is so light it did not need a piston to work. It was not as quiet as I hoped but still seems hearing safe. I do not have...

I use ameriglo night sights on my Glock, I really like them, but I seem to shoot better with tall sights on all my guns.

Picture isn't the best for this purpose, but it was the best one of the sights I had handy.
