[SHOT ’17] AAC Ti-Rant 9 Reborn: The 9M Modular Silencer

Advanced Armament Corporation (AAC), a division of Remington Arms, is announcing the re-release of the Ti-Rant 9 pistol-caliber suppressor. Dubbed the 9M, the Ti-Rant is capable of running in two configurations: a full-length eight inch suppressor for maximum suppression or a sub-six inch suppressor for a more compact package.

For those asking “isn’t the AAC Ti-Rant design nearly a decade old at this point”, besides the new modularity, the original design is still an industry leader in 9mm suppression. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of solid choices on the pistol caliber silencer market these days, but many shooters still regard the Ti-Rant as being at the top in terms of overall suppression.

The MSRP is set at $799, but distributors and dealers like Silencer Shop are listing pre-order/wait list prices at $699. The lowest street price I’ve seen so far is Hansohn Brothers at $625.

As a bonus, the new Ti-Rant comes as a package with two piston mounts – a standard and a metric. At these prices, with top-notch suppression and it’s included accessories, this new AAC Silencer will sell out quickly.

From the Ti-Rant 9M page at AAC: 

Its back and better! Behold the evolution of the most legendary 9mm silencer on the planet. Introducing the AAC Ti-RANT 9M! All the features and performance you came to love from the Ti-RANT 9 and 9S (short or “K”) in one improved package! New for 2017 Ti-RANT 9M (Modular) features a tool less take down design allowing the user in a matter of seconds the ability to reconfigure the Ti-RANT 9M from a full sized 8.0” long silencer (9.5 oz) into a 5.84” compact model (7.75 oz)!

One stamp – two silencer configurations. The main tube is constructed from Grade 9 Titanium for durability and light weight; while the front module tube is made from high strength 7075-T6 Aluminum for weight savings. The Ti-RANT 9M can be easily hand-disassembled without special tools to allow the entire baffle stack to be removed for cleaning and maintenance.

Not content to just offer a modular version of the legendary Ti-RANT 9, the new Ti-RANT 9M was optimized for even better sound reduction. In the full-size configuration, the Ti-RANT 9M turns in an impressive 33dB reduction while the compact (short or K) configuration meters 23dB reduction.

    I’m surprised they didn’t do this a long time ago.

      I’m often surprised by people jumping out at me from behind things.

      ATF interpretation of what is okay for silencer modularity keeps changing, and a long time ago this was a total no-go.

      For a while it seemed that even pistons and springs for the Nielsen devices would be considered silencer parts and controlled, with no extras available for sale.

      Thankfully, with silencers becoming commonplace, the ATF has backed off from that hardline stance. With the increasing normalization I expect less strict opinions from them, leading to more interesting features that should have existed for ages in one form or another.

    Way to copy the guys at Griffin Armament.

    • SilentMike

      The modular Ti-Rants are configured nothing like the Griffin cans.

    • joe6pack

      Well.. The didn’t. Thank god they didn’t copy the Griffin Revolution where you have to disassemble the whole can to replace the REAR portion that is the modular section. Stupid design from Griffin and AAC did it right. BTW Griffin wasn’t the first to market with a modular can. They copied what the Europeans have been doing with “moderators” or what we call silencers for quite some time. Some people need a education.

    • Jack

      Yes, Griffin has never been thought to have “borrowed” from others designs. KAC, KAC… sorry I mean, cough, cough. Sig, Rugged, AAC, OSS, etc are all copying Griffin with an arguably better design.

      Nothing is new under the sun.
      Different =/= better. Better = Better.
