    If i buy a tirant 45 will i regret not going with a 9 suppressor? I made a thread not long ago and was recomended the mystic but cant find a dealer with one in stock in az, but a dealer recomended the tirant 45 it is lighter and ill have more options for hosts. So in your opinion would you regret the trade off?

    I have a Ti-Rant 45 and am very happy with it. We use it on 9mm, 40cal and 45cal. A small charge of water in the suppressor makes a noticeable reduction in the sound. I'm very happy with it.

    Have a Multi-Mount 9mm in the safe waiting on the stamp so I can't give you any input on it.

    Thanks did you by the 9mm suppressor because you wanted things a little quieter than the tirant?

    The 9mm version will be quieter on a 9mm host. A 9mm can is also going to be smaller, lighter, more compact, etc. I'm a proponent of buying a dedicated can for each caliber. Suppressors are quite addictive and most people will just end up buying cans for each caliber down the road.

    I see a lot of buy the "one can fits all" threads. While I don't disagree with that at all, I find that I get the most value out of my suppressor and tax stamp for that matter, when I have a can specifically designed for a particular caliber.

    I see a lot of people shooting .22 thru their 9/45 cans or .223 thru their .30 cal can. Although it is done frequently, I think that the best performance is achieved when you use a can for it's intended caliber.

    The 9mm Multi-Mount will go on an AR 9mm pistol made from a dedicated 9mm Double Diamond lower and a Gem-Tech Talon upper.

    We do shoot a 223 through a 30cal can but it works best on the 300 AAC loaded sub-sonic. There's more noise from the bolt/buffer and the bullet hitting the steel target than from the muzzle.

    The Octane is better than the Osprey and TiRant. It's a better all around design and cleaning is a snap. I own all the above cans. The Octane wins.

    You are correct suppressors work best when they are caliber specific, just like a muzzle break the closer you can get the bullet to the baffles without contacting them the more efficient it will be.

    With that said a over bore suppressor or even a "junk" suppressor is better than no suppressor, if you shoot 9mm through your 45 it will sound great until you go to the range with somebody who has a industry leading 9mm suppressor on their 9mm gun then you might hear a difference. If its your first one buy the biggest one you can can afford later you can start filling in the gaps and get one for each gun or caliber in your collection.
