That is just badass. I plan on doing the same with my SP-01.

Buyer beware on the EFK barrel, it works but I'd look for other options if I had to do it again.

+1 had a bad experience with EFK too. Run a search on these forums for them, elsewhere too for that matter.

how are the numbers on this compared to an evo 9 with the new core? this looks like it could be a nice match for my g26 or pm9.

Yes I will e-mail you before the go out.

Only hold up on the next batch of Nanos from being shipped out is I'm working on getting the tubes marked. The company that was doing my laser engraving increased the price they were want by a bunch so I had to fall back to plan B.

Anyways they will be going out ASAP.

The last large batch of backordered Nanos will be shipping out this coming week. I will e-mail everyone with the their tracking number as soon as the suppressors ship.

The Nano suppressor is now back in stock and I will be taking orders again.

Dealers looking to stock the Nano e-mail me for pricing.

Thought I'd start off by saying how impressed I am with this can so-far (spec-wise). Just having a suppressor that can be used on varying caliber hosts is a godsend.

Had a few questions though: Mostly to narrow down my options. I live in WA, so even though I technically can't fire w/ one attached, I'm still of the belief that you should buy something once and get it right the first & only time. Note: I'm sorry if some of the questions come off as plain ol' stupid, but I'm an SD n00b, so be gentle haha

That being said, I was looking at your site last night and noticed that in comparison to the Mk line, no booster was shown on the any of the (nano) examples shown. Does this mean the can is light enough to cycle on say a Glock19 without the need for one?

Would it be safe to assume that due to the varying calibers it works with, that a 5.45x39 round could be run through it as well? (trying to find something that would ideally work w/ several of my current guns - and so far, the Nano seems untouchable)

Thanks!!!

Glad you are impressed with the Nano.

You are correct the Nano is light enough that it doesn't need a booster to work with a Glock 19 and for that matter it works perfect on a Glock 26 as well as many other small frame pistols.

The Nano is made for pistol caliber rounds so that 5.45x39 would not be safe to fire with the Nano attached to the weapon.

Just wanted to add my .02 as an owner of a Nano.

So far I have only used it on a Glock 17, and on that host it does indeed work absolutely fine unboosted. It also seems to reduce recoil and muzzle flip significantly which could be just due to the extra weight out front. Overall balance is only minimally effected due to the light weight of the can, and it is short enough that it should work fine in a custom OWB holster.

Wet and wiped it is impressively quiet for its size, absolutely hearing safe in my opinion. I have found that the wipes seem to last longer if a ~0.125" center hole is drilled in them. I have also found that firing hollowpoints through the wipe is fine as long as the center hole is larger than the hollowpoint of the bullet. Try this at your own risk of course. I would NOT fire a hollowpoint through an undrilled wipe, that is asking for trouble in my opinion, but YMMV. Accuracy seems mostly unaffected by the wipe, but that needs more testing to confirm.

The quality of the unit is outstanding. Before firing, I would put some antisieze on the threads as Ti can gall. I also recommend the left hand threads for those who have right hand twist barrels, it will keep the can from backing off the muzzle.

I'll get some video posted soon. I am absolutely in love with this can. I plan on threading some mouse guns for this thing as well, including a VZ.61 Skorpion.

Have you had a chance to fire any .32 ACP (7.65mm) rounds through your Nano yet? I'm curious about performance with this round as I'm considering a Nano for my Tomcat and PPK.

Nope haven't fired any .32 acps but that round is just fine in the Nano.

I will post a picture soon of the Nano mounted to a PPK/S

James, thanks for the reply. I know you had answered that question in my other thread, that's why I had asked hjustein if he'd done it with his since he stated he had a Skorpion. :wink: I do anxiously away the pic of the Nano mounted on a PPK/S, though!

Unfortunately I have not gotten around to threading my Skorpion yet.

One thing about pretty much all .32 Autos is that they are blowback guns so depending on the mass of the bolt/slide assembly, they may have significantly more action noise than a locked breech gun like the Glock.

I have fired some subsonic 124gr 9mm ammo that I made with basically the same amount of gunpowder that a .32 Auto cartridge would contain, and it is pretty damn quiet. ~1.7 gr of bullseye if I remember correctly...

Hmm... I need to find someone who has suppressed a ppk or a tomcat... or any other .32 pocket pistol.

James, that is SWEET! How did you do the threads for the Walther? Threaded PP barrel or threaded like that CZ in the other post? Also, have you guys done any polished black NANOs instead of just matte black? I'm getting one for my Walther and I'd love it to match.

That is actully a customers gun and the barrel on that was an extended barrel which was already threaded to 1/2"x32tpi when it came to me.

Nope haven't done any polish black Nanos, but I'm sure you could order either a glossy duracoat or gunkote finish and paint it on to have a close match to your Walther.
