    I brought my H&K USP Tactical .45ACP pistol to the range a few days ago for a magazine through it with my newly received Advanced Armament Corporation Evolution 45 silencer. Just thought I'd share a video and a few pictures. :)

    Video link This is firing WWB .45ACP 230gr ball. The silencer is being fired wet with about 5mL of water.

    Very nice! I have a USP Tactical .45 also. Where did you get the suppressor? Sounds quiet.

    I bought it from Alan Samuel in Dumont - GREAT guy, if you haven't gone to chat with him and see his inventory, you really ought to. It's well worth the drive. :)

    As for quiet? It's within a stone's throw of my .22lr Buckmark with silencer... this .45 silencer is SPOOKY quiet. AAC makes a damn good product.


    EDIT: Here is a link to Alan's website... http://www.mgtsinc.com/

    hey nice gun and silencer.. you should fix your stance though.. Im not expert but that looks uncomfortable. maybe a little more sideways and try LEANING FORWARD!! it will help you.. im not being a jerk or anything, but someone saw me shoot the way you did and corrected me, it was great advise, i shot better than ever after that.

    HEY! Shooting glasses! No joke, there's always a chance it'll toss a case backwards.

    But that is an uncontestably sweet set-up, sir.

    I assure you, I have a significantly better stance than that and always wear shooting glasses. The gent shooting was a friend, not myself. :)

    I have a Tac as well set up with a Nexus III suppressor. And your rig seems at least 30% quieter than mine. Although I use lithium grease. I have read that the water has a tendency to initiate corrosion when combined with the gasses and fowling. Even though It is stainless can, And the source was some joe smoe, I am overly cautious.

    Are those handloads?
    Have you shot 185 grainers yet?
    Where do you feed the water, front or rear?

    Standard WWB 230gr factory loads, not tried anything else, and I pour water down the barrel into the silencer.


    And yes, it's ABSURDLY quiet.

    ok just making sure, you should correct your friend on his stance. like i said im not trying to be rude i am i guess trying to "pay it forward" cuz it helped me so much.

    I've tried again and again and again to correct him, but he's still fairly new to guns.

    Still, I have to say, there's something heartwarming about an Australian guy moving here and deciding guns are a GOOD thing - then some of his first experiences involve NFA items. :D

    Thanks for the info. Maybe after ski season. I bought the Tac with the thought of getting a suppressor at some point.

    Worth every single cent for a good product. From experience with other silencers, stay away from YHM pistol silencers unless you don't have the coin for a AAC or SWR silencer.

    Dumont? Where at in Dumont? Didn't know there was anything there besides a gas station.

    No kidding! Go to his website and call or e-mail him, he'll give you directions to his place. :)

    The Evolution has an integrated Nielsen device, doesn't it? Would you happen to know if it works well enough to cycle a 1911?

    Yes it does and yes it will. Both the Evo45 and SWR's HEMS (both I and II) will cycle Browning-type autopistols just fine. :)
