Silenced 9mm


September 26, 2010, 04:24 PM
So from the sounds of it, the Sig 226 is one of the quietest hosts to suppress in 9mm. However, I can get a Glock 17, 19, or 26 with threaded barrel for almost half the price of a Sig 226. How well do Glocks suppress? Also, is there a substantial sound difference between the Sig 226 and Glocks? I want a really quiet 9mm, but I do not know if the alleged suppression offered by the Sig 226 is worth the extra money. Please let me know. Thanks.

I know that AAC suppressors are designed to be used on Glocks, and even my Evo-9 works very well on a Beretta, Walther, and BHP. I don't have a Glock, but a write up several years ago gave use of a Glock 19 with an Evo-9 a good rating. AAC has a newer suppressor model now, so newer design efficiency probably more than makes up for slight differences in weapons.

The Glock19 and AAC TiRant are a good match. And the USP9 and Osprey9.....depends on what you want to spend. If absolute suppression is a must Id use the SIG226/Osprey9/5cc's water/fiocchi 158grn ammo.

But as far as sig vs glock......the bullet impact is louder than the report anyway so its a crapshoot anyway....either your ear witness will percieve it as a gunshot or a nail gun, deoends if they have time behind a suppressed gun. Just buy a Fing can already.

Oddly, I've found the opposite with my 45 Osprey. The Glock 30 is quieter than my Sig 220 Combat. I didnt expect that. WHen I attach the Glock 26 9mm to the 45 Osprey its very quiet even with the extra space of the 45 opening.:)

As much as I love Sig pistols, I have to confess the Glock is a better gun for the price as Sigs quality has dipped a bit for the price. You see more plastic in Sigs these days too. The fact you can buy two Glocks for the price of one Sig is nice given Glocks ledgendary reliabilty and durabilty. To be fair though my Sig 220 is a bit more accurate than my Glock, but probably not worth double the price. I think the reason my Glock is quieter is due to the Glock stays locked a nanosecond longer than the Sig to spew out more gases into the silencer vs the Sig which seems to cycle easier and more gases exit the ejection port. I know this to be true cuz of my old Gemtech Blackside silencer that does not have a booster will cycle on the Sig, but not the harder to cycle Glock.
