    If you plan on using subsonic 10mm loadings, any .45 suppressor will work. I have used my AWC can on a 1911 custom 10mm with equally good results, if not better, than the .45 weapons I use it on. Plus side is you can use it on BOTH caliber weapons, no additonal suppressors or tax stamps needed!

    That is correct. A suppressor doesn't have to be built exactly for a specific caliber for it to work on anything that's 'close enough'. Shooting .22 through a .45 can doesn't yield optimal results, of course, but a .45 can is usually a decent compromise for anything from 9mm up.

    Rifle calibers can be a bit trickier because of much higher gas volume and pressure at the muzzle, but even a .338 can is workable on .223 if you don't want to buy a dedicated suppressor for each caliber or caliber range.

    Silencerco will warranty their .45 Osprey for 10mm and there's several videos of it on a Glock 20 on Youtube.
