If you were in the market for a 9mm can, prices and dB reduction being equal, would you rather have: 1) 1.375" diameter x 7" long, 10.5 ounces with piston or 2) 1.250" diameter x 8" long, 9.0 ounces with piston I knocked out the prototype 1.25" Phoenix-K IX, and now I have to decide which to go with for production. I still need to get more ears to verify, but they sound about the same to me. Length is obnoxious, but so is sight obstruction and weight. It's always a trade-off! To get similar suppression, I have one more K baffle in the skinny critter (1 stainless cone plus 5 aluminum Ks). I'm requesting opinions from ya'll!
