Suppressing a Glock

    hey all,

    So I've been saving my pennies for my next big gun project, and am looking to silence my g19. I'm pretty up to speed on the legalities and the taxes involved, what I don't know is brand names and quality.

    any reccomendations on barrels or suppressors and the places to get them? Obviously I want it quiet, but the less it costs, the more the wife approves.

    and, of course, I would love to see some pictures.

    I can think of Gemtech, Advanced armament, and AWC offhand.

    AAC or Gemtech.

    Don't rule out SAS...he is a one man company, but his CS is top notch and his suppressors are well known with the guys on SH.

    I would like to get an AAC suppressor personally... Maybe when I get a lot of money to blow... college isn't cheap lol

    For 9mm I would go with either the AAC Evo 9 or the SWR Trident 9 suppressor.

    lone wolf looks like they make a nice black barrel for the 19, awesome, thanks!

    anyone have any kind of experience with the listed suppressors? about how quiet do you think it will be without subsonic ammo? i think the only place ive found so far is impact guns, so if anyone else has a good website please post.

    thanks all, and lets see some pics!

    doesn't AAC sell direct? I don't remember... and it won't be very quiet... Do you have an ex you are trying to dispatch?

    Without subsonic ammo you will still have the sonic crack that will be fairly loud. With most suppressors made today if you are shooting subsonic ammo you can shoot them without hearing protection and be ok. Most are not going to be as quiet as you see in the movies or on TV. Closest to that is going to be a suppressed 22. My 22's when shot suppressed sound similar to a pneumatic nail gun when going off. Or about as loud as a air rifle.

    Lone Wolf is a great company. Oh, if you're considering going with OEM as much as possible, a Glock 17 barrel will not work with the Glock 19's lockup, but a G19 barrel will work fine in a G26. So you can't have a silencer and polygonal rifling on a G19. :(

    Suppressor brands, no advice but I would look for one that comes apart for cleaning. They're harder to find, but cans will eventually get all gunked up.

    Aaaargh. Made this mistake a month ago with a buddy's G17. Shooting on our indoor range -- enjoying muffs-free shooting -- swapped mags and WHOOPS! Those zippy little 115 grs. will make you grab for the 'ears right quick! :what:

    so no one would fault me for getting say a gemtech trinity or vortex? they seem to be well priced compared to the aac ones (especially when you add the tax stamp).

    i was also pretty surprised at how little a cost difference there is between the subsonic ammo I'm finding and regular, i thought it'd be a lot worse than that.

    Thanks guys!

    If you hurry (you have until Thursday) Gemtech is paying your $200 tax on their 9mm Tundra suppressor.
