    M10 Fake suppressor question

    I recently purchased a 9mm MAC10. I want to get an original two stage suppressor for it because I love the look, but I can only find them in .45ACP. I could wait and hope I find one, but my next best bet is to build one myself. The fake suppressors on the market are the exact same dimensions, though they seem to weigh more. Can anyone provide me some insight on the makeup of these? Are they hollow? Would this be a viable baseline for a Form 1 suppressor?

    Fake cans are usually a billet piece with a hole down the middle. Will need a lot more work to make a can out of one.

    I'm using a White Trash Tactical kit for my F1 can.


    The FTF faux can looks like it's probably just steel stock turned to the shape and a hole bored down the center.

    The RPB one I had from back in the day was a tube that threaded to the barrel. Then they took suppressor sized tubes(s) and welded that to the the inner tube.

    In other words, useless and easier to make new tubes.

    Wouldn’t a 2 stage Mac11 can in 9mm work?

    Very heavy unfortunately, seems like they weigh more than the actual suppressors did.

    I don't see why it wouldnt so long as it is threaded 3/4x10 TPI. Unfortunately I can't find any 9mm cans for these guns anywhere.

    I paid $750 for a SWD one with the Bowers upgrade a year ago but those are hard to find in original condition.



    OP: something like this might be helpful for your questions

    Back in the day I used a 7/8-9 to 3/4-10 thread adapter to shoot a CAC-45 on the MAC10/9 upper. It worked fine, and should do what you need if you can’t find a fake can with 9mm pattern threads.

    At almost 50oz I feel like it's a bit more material than some pipe. It's also twice the cost of my much more intricate PBS5 faux suppressor that was the barrel extension on my krink pre-SBR. Either prices have gone way up prints price is too high for some crude tube.

    That's pretty much what the M11/NINE fake suppressor was, IIRC I gave about $10 for it back in the 80s to go with my pistol. Waste of money even at $10!

    I never thought my original RPB can would be worth anything. It seems there bringing some money now.

    Does the cover fit a real suppressor? Mine was just plain parked steel, and other than giving you something to hold on to when "spraying from the hip"...

    Heads up. There is a two stage mac can on Gun Broker right now that doesn't seem to be attracting a lot of interest. It was at 100 bucks last time i looked.

    Fake suppressors Cobray MAC

    The in-manufacture versions are neat as ephemera/accessories - can’t go wrong for the price for a piece of MAC Cobray SWD RPB lore. I wonder how many makes and versions are out there ? And how many per manufacturer were made? Mine is Cobray stamped.

    That OP FTF Industries fake 2-stage is 3lbs. Mine is quite heavy as well.

    Practically, yesterday kids held onto the SWD M12 380 semi w the fake can. I felt better about it w/out the strap. At worst, place it as a novelty on your desk at work and let the discussions begin! Appreciate the fake cans. Well parkerized and fitted thread. The three end cap tacks were done on each end precisely in the same place opposite and each spot was beveled for the weld. They weren’t just slapped together. These were well ‘enough’ made and cosmetics okay for what they are imho.

    Anyone know why there are two longitudinal holes - cooling I figure. Haven’t put it on the full but assume it’d become blistering.

    The two holes mimic the holes where the real suppressors spanner wrench was placed for taking it apart.
