I recently assembled an AR9 based on a CMMG RDB bolt and barrel. It turns out that I like it a lot more than I thought I would and want to get a suppressor for it.

I ran across the YHM R9 and did some research and the reviews seem to be mixed. Does anyone here actually have an R9? What do you think? My intended use will be on my 5" 9mm PCC and a 10" 300 BO.
 
I bought a Rex mg7 that's basically the same thing. It's in jail. I can let you know how it is in somewhere between 2 days and 9 months. I even have a cmmg radial delay gun to put it on. What I can tell you is that my liberty mystic x on an 8" banshee shooting subsonic ammo is still louder than I really like to shoot without earpro. The marlin 1894 shooting subs is a lot quieter. Ar's are just noisy.

ok, I got to go visit my rex mg7 today in jail. they let me put it on my 357 lever gun I just so happened to have in the trunk, along with box of handloads I know to be subsonic and quiet. I got to try it in the berm outside. The verdict: my liberty mystic is quieter. noticeably quieter. in fact, I was rather disappointed by the performance. I think it's going to be my guest can.
 
Ok, man. That's disappointing to hear, but thanks. It looks like the smart thing to do will be to go with something like a sico 9k for the 9mm and get a vox s for everything else.

I don't think I'd buy a K can. if I was doing it over, I would have purchased a full sized 9mm can. K cans may be fine for taking the edge off centerfire rifles, but for subsonic stuff you'd like to shoot without ears, I'd pass. Now, the mg7 was more than fine with foam plugs.
