Which suppressor for .223, 45, and 9mm?

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.

Which suppressor for .223, 45, and 9mm?

Post by Tom3809 » Sat May 10, 2014 12:32 pm

Hey Everybody,

So I am purchasing my first silencer and I am wondering if I could buy a can that could serve on my .223 AR, 45 1911, and 9mm Glock. I know that using a large bore silencer on a smaller caliber gun can cause the shot to be louder, but I have witnessed a comparison and could not tell the difference. Therefore I am wondering what silencer would best suit me.

I have been leaning towards getting an AAC can due to the 200$-off website promotion they have going on.

Any and all input would be greatly appreciated!

The Liberty Mystic is the most versatile for a first silencer. It's the only take-apart pistol can that also handles full power 223 and 300 BLK (at slow rates of fire). However you cannot shoot 40 and 45.

I imagine it's too much to ask of one single can, to be both .45acp, and .223 without major sacrifices on each caliber.

A .30 cal can would be a better option, as well as an independant .45acp can.

Yes , no perfect can for all. Get the Octane 45 and save up for a 308 can. 223 is loud anyway.

This is the correct answer.
I'd also recommend getting a good 22lr silencer.

In other countries where suppressor designs are not regulated some
very old failed obscure designs had 'iris' baffles ... for each calibre from .45 => .22.
in a .45 can to accomodate/substitute various baffle hole diameters.
