Suppress a Glock? Best threaded barrels? Weight of .45 vs .40 ammo?

    Who suppressed their glock? I am thinking about getting an AAC Tirant for my Glock 21.

    How many DB's would a suppressed .45, .40, and 9mm be?

    Who makes the most durable and tough threaded barrel? Will a lone wolf barrel hold up to more abuse and last longer than a regular barrel?

    How much more does 100 rounds of 230 grain ammo weigh than 100 rounds of 180 grain ammo?

    Up a tree.
    1.) The AAC Tirant is an excellent choice, and is widely reported to be the best .45 suppressor you can get right now.

    2.) Lots of good information and third party test results here:
    http://www.silencerresearch.com/
    on .45 and 9MM suppressors, but none on .40 since they don't sell as well according to the guy who runs it. He says that most of the numbers manufacturers throw out there are mis-leading and less than truthful.

    3.) My threaded barrel is a Bar-Sto. NO, a Lone Wolf is NOT more durable than a regular barrel.

    4.) Let's see:

    230-180=50
    50x100=5000
    5000/7000=0.714 pounds difference in the projectile weight.


    Enjoy.

    Bar-Sto... just be sure to get it fitted as their drop-in barrels seem to have issues with some Glocks. #2 would be KKM. Stay away from everything else.

    Be big advantage of .45 for suppression is that .45 is naturally sub-sonic. You would have to load your own or special order sub-sonic 40.
     
  5. Can you use an AAC on G30sf? Or is it better to use a AAC/silencers on full size guns only? Sorry for my lack of knowledge on the subject.

    So Bar-Sto is the best? Do I need a thread protector? is the bar sto more durable than a factory barrel?

    You are not going to find a more durable barrel than a factory Glock. Do you expect to damage your barrel in some way?

    Look at the Silencerco Osprey 45 version. You can buy extra pistons and use the same can on 40 and 9mm. AAC TiRant pistons are not caliber interchangable.

    My suppressed glocks run fine on Lone Wolf barrels.

    I use the 9mm Osprey on a g19 in this video to give you an idea.

    I also have a 45 Osprey and AAC TiRant9 awaiting F3 transfers.

    9mm is much better to suppress over .40 and .45, quieter and cheaper to shoot. I have an SWR Trident 9, amazing can, most versatile can with all the various mounts they offer, great price (a couple hundred less than the Tirant or Osprey) and it has been around for years and has proven its worth. Plus SWR's customer service is top notch


    AAC customer service= TERRIBLE


    AAC, SWR, and Silencerco all make great cans. SWR and Silencerco have great customer service as well.

    Dude,the loudest part of firing the subsonic ammo was the slide cycling. That was awesome!

    same way with my Trident 9, if you hold the slide closed when you shoot its crazy quiet

    .45? No.

    .40? No.

    9mm, YES.

    The answers you seek are mostly opinions. You should try to hear a few. Theres likely someone local who has one but we cant help ya with that unless you tell us.

    You can use the same piston for 40 and 45 suppressors from AAC. The 9mm is different. In the photo below left to right 9mm, 40, 45.

    I shoot 9mm more than 45 and all far more than 40. But nothing comes close to the 22 rounds I shoot suppressed.

    I second or third getting Barsto or KKM barrels. They have always worked well. The smallest Glock I have suppressed is the G19 and it works flawlessly. I have no desire to try smaller but I have heard that it is less than reliable.

    Good luck

    Hmmm, I know the 9mm TiRant uses evo pistons but I thought the 45 TiRant could only use the 45 version pistons and not the 40....didnt know that.

    And BTW, OP...you can find Ospreys cheap....I paid WAY under MSRP for both of mine. Same with the TiRant.

    Why anyone would buy a suppressor louder than the two mentioned above is beyond me, as far as non-sub gun pistols cans...they are the best.
