SilencerCo Releases Omega 9K and Hybrid Suppressors

Capture

SilencerCo has been pushing new products out one after another. Latest to keeping up with their own impressive pace are two cans, the Hybrid and the Omega 9K. The Hybrid is a universal suppressor for most uses and the Omega 9K is the exact opposite – a dedicated handgun caliber can.

The Hybrid is an exciting offering, bringing SilencerCo’s offerings up to par with some of the smaller can manufacturer’s push to multi-purpose offerings. The Hybrid is compatible with most handgun cartidges from 9mm to .45 ACP and a bevvy of rifle calibers including, but not limited to:

  • 5.56
  • 300 BLK
  • 7.62 x 39 Russia
  • .308
  • 45.70 GOV (16″ barrel min)
  • .458 Socom (16″ barrel min)
  • .338 Lapua (18″ barrel min)

The can is compatible with a variety of accessories designed to ensure useful employment across various hosts. Retail is $999, which includes their piston mount and a 5/8×24 direct thread adapter.

SPECS for Hybrid

The Omega 9K retails for $865 and is immediately compatible with all existing Octane mounting accessories.

    As a former sico employee I recommend that shooters looking for a one size fits all suppressor go with something other than a hybrid unless you have cash to burn. If you get a hybrid you have to fork over for pistons, front caps, asr adaptors ($300 apiece) and mounts after already dropping a k for the can where a system like the griffin Optimus is a k but comes with all of those accessories included. That’s where they’re going to gouge the consumer.
    Just my .02.

    • Theo Braunohler

      It’s also the probably loudest suppressor on the market. I know a number of people that were at the unveiling in Miami and they all said it was shockingly awful.

      • Justin

        Really? I haven’t heard anyone say that. Also the numbers SiCo released for the Hybrid are excellent. Although they do not list .308 or .338 Lapua dB numbers but the rest are very quiet.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      I won’t beat up a can in suppression to much that has a 45 bore for 45/70 and will handle 18in 338lm…

      But I’m skeptical that it is “right can” for nearly everyone that ends up buying one.

      Of course the accessories are where they make the money, there is garbage margin in cans. But… As to boosters… It’s a 1.5″ can. Even a lot of guns with “suppressor sights” won’t clear that. I’d attach this to a pistol about never.

    • RedSnapper Tamer

      Why did you leave SilencerCo Dave? And what department were you in?

    • Dan

      griffin no go for 45acp or 45-70.

  • Mark

    Maybe this is a dumb question, but these multi-caliber suppressors use a single set of baffles or monocore that is just built for the largest caliber it works with, right? Do any manufacturers have a suppressor that comes with multiple baffle sets for different calibers? Or is that some kind of legal problem?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Can’t do multiple baffel sets of varying bore. ATF won’t allow it.

      Recently they’ve been able to exempt end caps depending on design, so you can get a 9mm end cap for some 45 cans (like the new Obsidian45 which is modular).

  • JumpIf NotZero

    All the slick videos aside… SiCos new offerings are both 1.50″ diameter but inexplicably still said they are pistol cans??? That will old real fast.

    The Hybrid is cool that it’ll take 338lm (probably quite loud), but anyone attaching to their 9mm handgun is sure to be disappointed by weight and performance. I don’t really get it unless you need to suppress .458socom and 44mag today.

    The Omega9k has the exact same issue being a 1.5″ can, I just don’t see these being popular on pistols. Suppressor sights required, and I still don’t know they’re clear. SiCo seems to have made a shorty subgun can, which is cool, but crazy limited market. My Mk9k is 2″ and has a ton of volume because I know I’d never mount it to a pistol, works awesome. The Omega9 doesn’t even handle supersonic 300blk, so it wouldn’t go on an AR of mine.

    I kinda feel like they missed anything close to “mass appeal” with these two.

      “The Omega9 doesn’t even handle supersonic 300blk, so it wouldn’t go on an AR of mine”

      Says above that it does?

      • JumpIf NotZero

        Edit, handles 300blk super at 16″ which is like “handles Usain Bolt in a marathon”. Just makes no sense for what it’s for.

        And… You know there is information OUTSIDE of thefirearmblog right?

        • TheRealHorridus

          I mentioned it to see if perhaps you had information the article above did not, hence the question mark. I actually thought you might be correct and the above was in error when I asked. I appreciate the lead though!

    • KestrelBike

      Very cool, last week I ordered a Gemtech MK9K for my xmas-gift-to-self Zenith Z-5RS (regular sized MP5 clone). Super psyched! Kind of a bear tracking one down, but I was able to get my LGS to order direct from gemtech so no lame transfer fees, just the Form 3 to wait on before the Form 4.

      Glad to hear you like yours. What host is it on?

  • Salty

    Where can I get a 7-16/28 (or32?) to 1-2/28 adapter!??!? I wanna suppress my skorpion (7.65, not evo 3)

  • Jeff

    A grand for a can! Are they gold plated? Much, much cheaper here in NZ.

    • Anon. E Maus

      Silencers are restricted in the US, and thus, since you’re limited in your purchases, you’ll likely be looking at something that’ll last you.

      In countries like the UK, Sweden or NZ, a silencer can be bought by anyone with a license and thus you can make one out of cheap materials.
