    Maybe because those are metric threaded. Most of us have American threaded suppressors.

    As a PP suggested, .22 standard velocity or even shorts out of a mechanically operated rifle, if a quiet way to murder critters is all you want.
    For the OP, a silencer that is legal in AZ can't even be legally taken home to Minnesota, and the paperwork for that silencer is based on your official residence.
    Yeah, the paperwork is a pain (I have some SBRs), but your two residences will make it difficult to do. Just get that Winchester/Rossi pump that will run .22 shorts....

    I use my Omega 9K with a Glock 43 sometimes. It is a very small quiet package, which works flawlessly.

    I have a Gen3 G26 with a True Precision threaded barrel and Octane9 HD suppressor. I have only used Freedom Munitions 147gr 9mm ammo, and it works great.

    well now that is one of the best examples of someone wanting to demonstrate to the whole internet that they really can't contribute to a conversation and are ignorant of a subject. Awesome job.

    To the topic though, they work as well with a compact (used to have one, no longer do)as they do the large size versions. As with all guns when you add them, you "may" have to tweak the recoil spring to get it to reliably run equally well with the suppressor and without the suppressor with all different types of ammo. My 19 took a stronger recoil spring, the 17 runs fine as is. Some guns just like it better than others.

    Your absolute best results will come with subsonic ammunition (147).

    Some guns though, just have to be suppressed to be what they are intended to be (i.e. the MK23).

    I will say, the people who say that a .22 will probably do you better are right as I have killed more critters with the MK2 Ruger than any other pistol, but sometimes coons get dispatched with the 19 also. A 9mm is "pretty darn quite" with a good suppressor and subsonic, but a .22 is really really quite. But if you want to use the Glock, by all means.

    I have not ran 147 grain yet in my Canik 9mm. But in the Glock it’s slightly louder than the G42 380.
    But you are correct you can’t beat a 22 with a suppressor.

    Oh and OP you don’t want to use hollow point with a suppressor. (Some may say yes you can but that’s a fine line. If you use wipes or water. Any type of fluid you down want to use them. I think most suppressor companies say not too. Some one correct me if I’m wrong)

    And no you don’t have to shoot subs. But subs make a huge difference in sound suppression.

    Well, on this one, ignorance was very bliss. I had never heard to not shoot hollowpoints with a "wet" suppressor. Have sent about 300 through the 19 in this manner, probably 500 through the MK23, and pretty sure a bazillion through the .22 (but bet that doesn't count as that hollow point is pretty much a joke) and have never had a problem.

    That being said, the logical part of my brain says "yeah, maybe that isn't a good idea", not sure that there is enough "wet" in the suppressor to make a hollowpoint expand, but don't think I will probably do that anymore.

    Probably excessively "safe than sorry", but you just "might" be onto something there.....

    I have always been told not too. Maybe it’s bs. I read through my suppressors owners manuals and no where does it say you can’t. I figured the ghostm would since it has a wipe. But it doesn’t say anything about hollow points. That being said I think it’s better safe than sorry and I will not be using any hollowpoints in mine.
