Favorite .45 ACP pistol host?

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

Favorite .45 ACP pistol host?

We had this thread: Favorite 9mm pistol host?

And, as a Sig fan, I was pleasantly surprised by the results.

Now it's time to ask the same for .45. What's your favorite .45 ACP pistol to run suppressed?

I used to love my HK USP tactical as my goto 45 host...

But don't tell it I prefer my TRP 1911 now lol. It's quieter.

Sig P220. Dating myself a little, but the first one I carried had the grip mag release. Have gone through 2 more over my life. Absolutely will not say there is a better .45 handgun available. I did shoot a 1911 competitively, but given a choice for a working gun, I will choose a P220 in .45 every time.

Made me sad on some level when I was directed to change to .40 cal. this year. Can still hear my P220 sobbing :( in the safe when I slip my new .40 P226 into it's old holster.

1) Sig P220

2) 1911
3) MAC10













4) Everything else.
