Finally jumping down the NFA rabbit hole

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.

All NFA laws apply.

Finally jumping down the NFA rabbit hole

Post by Ifixplanes » Wed Feb 26, 2020 7:40 am

Alright y’all I’m finally taking the plunge and looking to purchase my first suppressor. I know I would like to use a 45acp suppressor so I can suppress multiple of my pistols but it will mainly be used on a CZ p-07 and CZ scorpion micro. I’d prefer to still us 115 grandview even though it won’t suppress it as well as subsonic would.
Is there any recommendations on suppressors or any advice y’all can give?

A perspective: Up front, make your final choice from among the highest quality cans from the few
recognized top companies with stellar customer support ... not cheapest in price.

Amortizing the final cost starting getting the stamp, waiting, finally the joy of pulling
the can out of the box, reliability, etc., you will find that waiting and paying
that extra is so worth it. Yes there are those who will say that there
are cheaper cans "... just as good, blah, blah...". Not worth it.

But you should always feel that you are worth it.

Old Balkan mountain wisdom: "I am too poor to buy cheap things".

Old Daimler motto "The Best or Nothing".

Just an opinion that you might find useful.


Best.

Another Bon Mot that concurs was made by a buddy who said
( before he met the one girl of his dreams and has happily married ever since )

: "A happy bachelor is a man who never made the same mistake ONCE!"

Put in place of "bachelor" ..."Suppressor Buyer." :) :)

Alright I think I can say I have researched wayyyyy to much into suppressors lol. I had it narrowed down to the aac Ti-rant 45m, rugged obsidian 45 and the griffin armament revolution 45 mod 3. The griffin is the one I’m going with I think, the ability to run it on 556, 300blk super and sub and 762 seems like a huge plus.

Congratulations on a top choice.
Your due diligence and buying quality will delivery many
happy and safe years of shooting ... especially
in long configuration.

Thank you for update.

Best!

Suggest: Anti-Seize on threads;
#5 DOT silicone brake
fluid soak..then..wipe for tube and baffles,
will make cleaning much easier.

Picked up my Revolution 45 a little over a month ago. Really like it. Just need to figure out a way to brake the piston housing from the extension so I can change between the long and K configuration at the range.
