Just ran across a most interesting new can review.

They wanted to match the 'standard' Dead Air HD - a nice compliment.
A question that comes to mind is were one to purchase 2 cans can they
be threaded together in one long configuration.
Wishing them much success as they are keeping the suppressor development
HPA's passing will generate more jobs for America!
Just got a private response to share:
"Make Suppressors Great Again
I watched a guy at the range 2 or 3 years ago put two Tirant M 45 suppressors together in every configuration possible (no backwards baffles though). We had no sound meter but lot's of suppressor guys and it was shot out in the open away from the walls and roof. We used my Tirant 45M on an identical Sig 1911 style. Worried about a baffle strike everything was clean and snug at all connections. Absolutely no improvement in sound reduction whatsoever. Now a meter may have said differently but these were real world conditions, above 50 F, no wind and no earpro. Used same ammo - Remington brass case 230 ball and Hush 230 ball. The Hush was noticeably quiet in the suppressors when all were dry but when wet with RemOil could not hear much difference. Shooting wet really must give you 4-7 or more dB of suppression. I use foamy "Blitz" brand spray white lithium grease I get at AutoZone and O'Reiley's. You can shoot through the foam if you happen to not check your suppressor bore like you should and will get no deviation of flight, no baffle or end cap strikes. A friend of mine with more money than me filled up an Oculus and an Element II in .22, a TiRant 9M and an Obsidian 9M, and a Obsidian 45 and an Octane with the spray foamy white lithium occluding the center passageway and then shot all of them... no problems at all. I have had baffle strikes with the heavy white lithium grease we used to pack AWC suppressors with and have had baffle/end cap strikes using wire pulling gel.. the gel can creep down and build up on the bottom of your suppressor if the whole unit is laid on its side after looking good after first being applied. Also, the Blitz stays foamy for days... I should fill up a suppressor and leave it on it's side for a longer period of time but I like shooting most all of them... I do have a pos GM-45 that I never use and it's a monocore so it will hold a lot, I may try that. GemTech really should have made their GM series longer like Liberty did with their Regulator, Mystic X and Cosmic, and I like Liberty's monocore engineering better, Dave and company do really good work and don't have an attitude.
Sorry all, I've had way too much coffee - time to put a new M-lok handguard on my SBR and go try it with my ancient S&H "sound moderator". It was patterned after the one made for the 10 or was it a 10.5 inch barrel in the Vietnam era Commando Colt M-16s.
