AAC Evolution .45 owners! Have you ever tried to ???

AAC Evolution .45 owners! Have you ever tried to ???

Post by Billy Wyrick » Thu Jul 06, 2006 7:26 pm

As I wish to suppress a .45 and a 9mm, but before I go off the deep end and get a 9mm Evolution for my Sig 226-TB first. I just may win the stupid question of the week game, but here goes. If you own a .45 Evolution can. Have you ever tried to get a different piston thread size that will work on a 9mm pistol you have. And then been so bold as to use this combo together. I have fired .22lr through my AAC Avenger can with very good results mounted on my UZI. So small calibers through bigger cailber cans can work. BUT!!!
#1 Did the pistol cycle?
#2 How was the sound reduction?
Yes, AAC I am trying to save the cost of two cans by getting one to serve on two different caliber pistol's. Take a moment as we all listen to the loud BOOOOOOO's-----------. OK, Pop always told me to ask question's as we never learn if we fear getting out the box. A .45 ACP can that has changable thread sizes like the Evo. and works fist of all with the .45's that it is made for and also do yoeman service in 9mm is a great idea. Maybe its over the rainbow. But unless I ask???????????????
Thanks and Regards for reading and not throwing tomatoes!!!

Hmm.
The last Evo-45 I heard sounded like s--t. I mean seriously, bring ear plugs. If you've never heard one before, you'll be disapointed.
The last Evo-9 I heard sounded great, I want one.

Get the Evo-9 and be happy. Until I hear AAC's new super .45 can, I'll stand by my statement that .45 ACP sounds like crap when fired dry. Firing wet is out of the question for me, because unless your name is Wayne L Burnham, you are not going to make it look cool.

My hat's off to Wayne.

Wayne has lost like 200 lbs since that pic was taken.

Yes, it would suck to shoot 9mm from a .45 can. If you can only have one suppressed centerfire pistol, get an Evo-9.

Thanks for telling me what I already was pretty sure of. I have a AAC Tactical .45 can and it does indeed sound way better wet than dry. I have heard great reports from others, including one local person I trust about the Evo. 9mm. Enough said I will go the 9mm Evolution route.
Thanks
