Can you more experienced members offer me advice concerning the best suppressor for my MAC 10, 9mm?
All I have gathered so far is that the CAC9 is the most affordable and adequately quiet, and stay away from the old Coastal cans.

Most Quiet? Best Value? etc....

Thanks
BP

I've been leaning towards a Gemtech Trinity for my MAC, but I have to sell it to pay for my new select-fire FNC. :D

The Trinity can be used on pistols and subguns, because it can take either a regular threaded shaft, recoil LID device, or HK 3-lug. It would have given me the most bang for the buck if I was keeping the MAC, because I also have a Sig in 9mm.

I agree that the Viper is the best choice for a MAC only can.
I personally would 3 lug the barrel and go w/ the Gemtech MK9k.
I listed the 10 reasons why I think it is the best here:
http://www.uzitalk.net/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=8354

Note reason 10. When comparing the MK9k to other cans it will have the least amount of backpressure except for some inefficient or huge cans.
I have not tested the MK9k on a MAC 10 9mm just the M11/9mm. It affected the ROF the least in comparing to the Gemtech Trinity and SWR QD3K.
But this is all subjective. I don't know what your criteria is. If you do want even faster ROF, then maybe you do want something w/ more backpressure like a Trinity, QD3k, Viper, Raptor etc...

Thanks guys, Good info. Sounds like Gemtech is the way to go.

Darn rookies never post where they are from... I got a Coastal... Works fair... But it is a .45... If you stop by I will let you try it.... On the other hand a Gemtech sounds like it would be pretty good...

I'm in South Central PA...I have an AWC MK9 on my M-11..It works great but does loosen up a bit while shooting. I wanted the Viper but couldnt find one when I had the cash...The MK9 works well with the Subcal .22lr Upper also...

I agree with Amphibian

MK9K in 3 lug. If your looking for quiet, the Raptor and QD3k are not the way to go. They are a good compromise sound/size but are not near as quiet as the MK9K or MK9. And yes, I have a Raptor.

Hope this helps,

Bill J

Yes, my priority #1 is quiet. I could care less about weight/bulk. I understand you get what you pay for with guns, but there is a certain point in which you are only paying for a name.
That's why I wanted some of your personal experiences.
I appreciate all of your input.

Thanks!

I have a Bowers CAC 45 that came with my MAC 10. It's not a bad can and it works well. However, if I were buying a new can I would get a Gemtech Viper (with the latest baffle stack design.)

The Vipers are shorter in length, looks like an original design with the larger blast chamber (but it's really a hand guard) and it locks onto the gun with a 'teeth' type setup.

The new baffle stack looks cool too and the owner stated that it was the best .45 subgun can he as fired (he was a CIII dealer.)

To handle the high ROF & gas volume...

MGAPA...

...you would be best served by AWC's MK9.

2"D x 12"OL
2lbs
Stainless & alloy... VERY TOUGH unit
coaxial design with eccentric blast baffle... NO 1st round POP
I have yet to hear a quieter suppressor for these weapon systems!

The can's tapered rear bushing indexes on the coarse barrel threads & the shoulder of the barrel collar.

SURE... you'll need NOMEX & will HANG on for the ride...
BUT... that is NOT a problem on such a short, finger hungry weapon!
:cool

One note... you don't ever want to buy an inferior can to start with as they have rather poor resale value, should you decide it is inadequate for your needs.
