Don't just think about pistols either. Something like a subsonic .44 Mag/Special out of a lever gun should be safe for a .45 suppressor (but check with the manufacturer first) and would be a very fun gun.
Most guns won't need suppressor sights to see over an Osprey, but some still might. Personally I don't see the need for suppressor sights, I just sight through the can when shooting suppressed.
FWIW, I was talking to a guy at liberty about an entirely different can, but still a 9mm or 45 can on a 9mm host. He said he liked the sound of the 45 can better.
The sights "seeing over the can" issue is nowhere near as bad as you might expect at first. You focus on the front sight, the target is a blur and the occlusion of the target by the suppressor makes surprisingly little difference -- although some high contrast paint for the front sight might be in order. I'd try it as it is and only spring for "suppressor sights" if you really must.
No. Uncorking pressure of rifle rounds other than .22lr and .300BO sub-sonic is way too high. You don't want to shoot .22lr through a can you can't take apart to clean. But .300BO sub-sonic jacketed bullets should be fine.
BTW a 9mm and 22 and ARs usually all have the same TPI 1/2 in. x 28. I would never run a riffle round through a can that was designed for a pistol. MUCH more pressure with the rifle and you may "pop" your can or worse....
If you don't know what your doing put away your pride and find someone that does and or educate yourself. Good luck.
