    Which 9mm pistol makes the best host for a suppressor? What I mean is what pistol, when a sound suppressor is added, will be the quietest and have the best reliability? Thanks.

    any full-size 9mm will be good

    Guess I should be more specific. 92fs because the barrel lockup design makes for quieter suppression. Additionally, it is one of the few autoloaders that won't require a nelson device. That's said I went with a p30 as a host.

    Actually...the SigP226 has been proven a more quiet host than all others. We think its because the barrel stays locked up a fraction of a second longer than other platforms.

    www.silencerresearch.com The P226 is always 1-2db quieter......

    I like the Sig P226 for a few reasons.

    You can get a 226 set up from the factory for a suppressor.

    If you go Glock or 1911 - you have to find your own barrels and they may require fitting. If you go HK you are near the same price points as Sig but in my opinion you will get better post sales support from Sig, should you require it.

    Besides, who dosen't like a P226?

    I don't live in the United States, so what Glock offers overseas is not known to me, but I just ordered a factory threaded barrel from Glock and I know a couple of people who did the same (either seperately or they bought the gun with TB immediately) for 9mm as well as .45 Glocks (.40 not very common here).

    They don't advertise this on their website, but you could contact them directly and ask if they sell threaded barrels if you wish to go with a Glock for your suppressed 9mm.

    I have never seen a Glock factory barrel offered commercially through my vendors but I have not called Glock directly. I will do this Monday.

    Let us know what they say, so I stop suggesting this on American forums :D

    I shot a suppressed HK P9S a couple years ago, next to some suppressed glocks and other common guns. No testing equipment, just our ears, and nothing scientific about it at all, but that P9S seemed the quietest. Odd gun, but quiet.

    A threaded barrel is probably one of those "bad" features that would make them illegal to import. Just like how you can't get 380 Glocks.

    Not the typical response; however, a very, very good choice. I wish I could find a bolt action 9mm like my Anschutz .22LR pistol. It is extremely quiet, and it is nice to have more than a single shot.

    Might this also reduce the blow back into the shooter's face, that is typically associated with suppressors?

    I found Glocks to be quieter than Sigs. Generally you hear to the contrary. I'm fairly certain Sigs are easier cycling as I dont need a LID/booster to cycle my Gemtech Blackside on my Sig 220, but my Glock 30 wont cycle the same can without the ammo being +P .45. My Glock 26 9mm is really quiet with the Lone Wolf threaded barrel attached to my 45 Silencerco Osprey. 124 grain ammo often remains subsonic in my Glock26 from its usual +1,150 for longer full sized 9mm pistol barrels. Thats one benefit of a smaller 9mm as you dont need 147 or 158 grain subsonic.

    Silencertest has on several occasions found the P226 to be the quitest host. I've run my Trident on my P226 and G23 and the Sig sounds and handles better.
