    Good currently available direct thread 9mm suppressors?

    Was looking at the Gemtech GM9 with the direct thread mount for the uzi barrel nut, any other suggestions out there on good suppressors to look at?

    Just got our SOT at the shop, so a bit new to the options and what everyone thinks is the best/worst/best value for the buck.

    SilencerHQ UZI Octane Adapter with an Omega 9K is a nice setup.

    Bowers Vers series or Aklys pilum, Hawker

    In all fairness, the UZI suppresses well with most anything though

    Lightweight, versatile, quiet.

    I always have preferred a decent size sub gun can like a Vers/ CAC/ or even a MK9K.

    Bowers Vers 9S for me. I like that I can change the mount and use it on a variety of guns. The 3 lug mount locks up tight.

    SiCo Octane with uzi mount is quiet. But I normally shoot my old Coastal Uzi can.

    the barrel nut mount from GemTech(multimount) and Bowers(CAC-45) are good. I invested in the 3-lug barrel from BWE and find that I use those more than the original barrel nut mount adapters.

    I've found that to be the case as well.

    The thing about "which silencer" threads is that most answers consist of "I have X, and it works really well". Since the Uzi makes a very good suppressor host, you can almost skip past suppression levels and start looking at other features like length, weight, and attachment method.

    Personally, I think the skinny pistol cans look funny on a subgun. Sort of like the long skinny barrel on a semi-auto Uzi. Shot side-by-side, I can't tell any real difference between the CAC-45 and the shorter VERS-9S.

    I have threaded barrels, barrel nut mounts, and 3-lug adapters.

    Of the cans I own, I usually grab the VERS-9S with the barrel but mount. Again, it comes down to personal preference.

    Buy a maxim 9 for $860 and get a free octane

    Get an extra gun and suppressor for $250 more

    Still have a day to get it done

    Octane 45 is what I have. It works well. If you never use it on pistols it would be my choice.

    Garret, what is that chubby can with the fabric sleeve around it at the top of your picture?

    FYI I ended up getting the Gemtech GM9 as it was pretty inexpensive and a good starting point- already set up to mount on a 1/2x28 pistol, it is full auto rated, and the uzi adapter was readily available (which I picked up with it) for when our post sample is ready. in the meantime we can use the can on a Browning Hi Power I have in the shop.

    I will definitely look at some of the other options you have suggested and likely pick up another can or two as time goes on.

    Bowers VERS-9S in a leather/nomex cover.

    Here's a better look at it. You can also see how a fat SMG can will sometimes be shorter, where it can swallow the end of the barrel. The skinny pistol can has to have a longer mount to position he can out in front of the barrel. Not a good/bad thing, just differences.
