    Interesting.

    Similar concept as drum device that doesn't contact the barrel like this but in a smaller package?

    If it works as advertised, and considering you dont need a threaded barrel, and it will work on any, stock, out of the box gun (as long as they have the rail), thats a pretty big deal.

    Nice you dont need suppressor sights either, not that thats really a big deal, as I just use the standard night sights with the suppressor I have, and thats not a problem either.

    It would be nice to get a look at one, and better yet, shoot it. We'll have to see if its actually just a unicorn and if it really exists. :)

    I like the larger box for bigger gas expansion chamber and being able to use the sights is a plus.

    I wonder if another design that actually inserts the muzzle inside the box would do a better job of sound suppression?

    Still, I could see this spurring an entire industry for a niche market if there is a measurable reduction in sound.

    That's really cool.

    If it works as well as a threaded one it could be huge especially if you could use it on multiple firearms.

    Problem is, it won't. Only works on Glock models with the correct barrel length (and it's caliber limited to 9mm from what I can find). Maybe you'd get lucky and find some other host that has exactly the same dimensions from the rail to the muzzle with the same bore axis, but I doubt it.

    I would bet there's a pretty good pop when the barrel uncorks from the back of it, too. Video is nearly useless for evlauating SPL. They show 139.9 dBC in the specs ("bang reduction" they call it :scrutiny:), which is about 145-146 dBA; so that thing is louder with subsonic 9mm than my 1.56" x 5" Five-By Five model on a 10" 5.56 AR shooting M193, and 20+ dB louder than decent conventional 9mm cans. No thanks.

    This is what 145 dBA muzzle SPL sounds like on camera (it meters 140.1 at shooter's ear, FTR)

    It is a "Glock" suppressor after all, so I suppose it might be an issue if youre shooting something else. :thumbup:

    As far as how well it works, until we can actually get our hands on one to try it out, I guess we'll never know. Videos and charts tend to be lacking when it comes to what you really get.

    Cool idea though.

    Since actually using the rail of the Glock Gen3's tended to cause cycling issues, I would have suspected that this is a Gen4/5 solution only - and yet their picture mule is a Gen3 molding. :)

    The mounting issue is easily addressed, they can sell mounts that the suppressor tube attaches to with screws. They'll design for a Glock, but it'll be workable with anything.

    Assuming there was enough interest to manufacture them in the states (can't import suppressors), they'd have to get approval to sell the mounts separately, which almost certainly wouldn't happen as-designed.

    I just can't imagine much of a market for an 8" long, 13 ounce can that's only able to make 9mm subsonic SPL on par with a 5.56 SBR using a K can. I personally wouldn't be interested in one if it were free.

    I'm a little bit late to this party, but I can't help but compare the efficiency of this design to the efficiency of a suppressed revolver. It's a cool idea but not that great in practice.
