    I got mine from Long Mtn Outfitters about 3 years ago (they changed names). Gemtech makes the can specifically for LMO, I waited 5 years before Gemtech did a run. They are a barrel that has been ported, with a screw off cylinder to close the ports and the can built around the barrel. If I remember correctly, there are 13 baffles, looks exactly like the can in the header on this forum. Totally comes apart for cleaning. Before I got this one, I used a Gemtech raptor with a TROS 3 lug adaptor on a 5" barrel.

    I would contact Tim Bixler if you want an integral.

    They have some AWC Mk9 Navy suppressors on Autoweapons.com that are specifically made for the 76. They are a little pricey though.

    Liberty Suppressors in GA can make a custom "anything" and their QC and CS is outstanding.

    I bought one from Jim Burgess. While its an old school design, it has an intregal ported barrel that makes standard WWB subsonic and very quiet. Unfortunately, the baffle stack (washers) wasn't welded together as well as it should have been and I had to have them re-welded.

    I have an SG9 that was made by Southern Machine Tool and Die out of Panama, Fl. It is a licensed copy of the original SG9 made by Dr. Phillip Dater from the old AWC days. The cool thing is that it is made entirely out of steel.

    My understanding is Jim Burgess suppressors will work on the SW76, MK760, and S&W 76. His site is JMB distribution.com

    Are the SG9s really that much better than a burgess can? If so, how. I'm honestly just wondering out loud here

    In short yes. Remember as with everthing you get what you pay for. If am not mistaken the Burgess cans have a combination of eyelets and baffles. Maybe someone with a Burgess will chime in. The SG9's have an integral barrel that is ported with an adjustable inner sleeve. You can turn the sleeve to either cover or expose the ports on the barrel, tuning it to whatever ammo you are using. There is also 18-20 sets of spacers and baffles within the tube. I am not knocking the Burgess cans. I'm sure they work.

    I have one of the Burgess cans. It has the eyelets in the first section where the barrel is ported. It is all steel construction.
    I don't have any other cans to compare it to, but it is hearing safe shooting standard WWB 115 grain. It gets very dirty as the unburned powder ends up in the first stage. It was $400 and I am happy with it.

    ditto on the Burgess can. Fairly easy to clean and the sound suppression is just fine. For the limited amount to FA shooting I do with my MK-760, the $300 savings over the SG9 was used to pay the stamp and transfer fee. All in all very satisfied with this purchase.
