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:

Caliber9 mm
Length7.6 inches
Weight9.5 ounces
Diameter1.25 inches

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

MSRP: $799.00

    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.
