    Hello all, I'm looking into getting into the suppressor world for lots of reasons.....but I was looking for a little input from those in the know about the best cans. I currently am thinking about turning my g 23 into my "fun gun" I've ordered the 40-9 conversion barrel in 1/2x28 threaded and am leaning towards the trident 9 from swc. I am going to start this can with the g23 but as funds come in I plan on expanding it to other applications, carbine, etc First question is what all will I need to complete the transformation for the g 23..ie mount, can, neilsen device threaded barrel etc.... Second question anyone have experience with the trident I've been told it's a little heavier and larger in diameter than say the gemtech but if I get raised sights then I'm ok with that. I'm more looking for some guidance about what will be the best can for under 750 that I can use for years to come. Any input is greatly appreciated

    Gemtech,SWR,AAC etc, nobody is better than anyone else. Many reasons for purchasing one brand vs the other is largely a prefrence reason, or that they were first exposed to a certain brand and like their products and designs.

    IMO, since I prefer gemtech products is to look at the Multimount platform. As I tell anyone who is getting ready to spend $1000 on a can, find someone who has one of each brand and choose based on your exposure to each one, and look at the price vs what you get.

    In my opinion, the three top 9mm muzzlecans offer the same basic DB reduction and all work very well. Nobody "out-performs" anyone else. There many videos online that prove it. Do NOT base your choice on "unbiased" silencer-research websites.

    I'm in the process of transferring a Multimount and TALON upper from Gemtech. They are my preferred brand.

    AAC makes a nice unit too. The problem with him setting 700$ as a budget is too low though.

    Thats not accounting for the stamp, barrel threading or a new barrel for whatever gun etc. and their LID type attachment to make the gun cycle. Most any quality muzzle can of 9mm or more is going to cost 1000$.

    The gemtech multimount is in the low 500$ range at most dealers BTW.

    If you plan to use it on a fixed barrel (carbine) or some pistols (Beretta M9/92F) be sure you can eliminate or defeat the LID/Nielson device.

    With the MultiMount, you remove the LID and replace it with a fixed mount (that is what I have). with the Evo-9 you remove the spring from the ASAP (their LID) and replace it with a spacer.

    You may want to check into how to do that with SWC.

    I prefer the MM because you can also swap a 3-lug mount. (Well, mostly because my dealer does not deal with AAC products!)

    I eliminated the high-sight problem by getting a FastFireII.

    And I can use the LID if the pistol is dirty or the ammo under powered:

    Talking of cans and the NFA, is it necessary in the U.S. to register a pillow and pay $200 for sleeping on it?

    I really like my Trident9. It works well and is easy to swap between different firearms. I would hold off on getting raised sights until you shoot the pistol suppressed; I am glad I did. I find it very easy to aim "through" the suppressor and I don't have huge sights on my glock.
