Surefire’s new Ryder 9 suppressor (VIDEO)

I was invited to the Surefire Institute to get a hands on experience shooting Surefire’s very first 9mm pistol suppressor. It’s an impressive piece of gear, and pretty darn quiet. I first saw it at SHOT Show earlier this year but didn’t get a chance to shoot it. Now, I get to rectify that problem.

Built out of titanium, it’s lightweight yet also really strong. Here are the Ryder 9 stats:

Caliber 9 mm
Length 7.6 inches
Weight 9.5 ounces
Diameter 1.25 inches

And finally, here’s the Ryder 9 in action:

MSRP: $799.00

    I don’t want to be rude but it seems kinda heavy for a titanium pistol can. The Ti-RANT is slightly longer and wider yet it weighs almost an ounce less and is only 50 USD more expensive.

    Kinda moot for me since I can’t get American suppressors. For pistol suppressors I think I will look at New Zealand, they’re good with titanium IIRC.

    Yes the 9mm TiRant looks good on paper and has as good as it gets suppression but it’s no longer being produced.

    $670 street price… not bad.

      Surprisingly reasonable coming from Surefire.

      I’d probably still choose an Osprey but that decision is more political than practical on my part.

        SilencerCo’s SPEQ discount can’t be beat…

    Surefire decreasing prices now that they’re in financial trouble?

    I’m choosing my first suppressor. If I get a 9mm model, it’ll definitely be a Liberty Mystic X, due to the caliber versatility. Many 9mm cans will tolerate subsonic 300 Blackout, but how many will take supersonic Blackout from any barrel length, or 223 Rem from a 16″ barrel?

    My options for a rimfire suppressor are a bit harder.
