Rugged Suppressors Introduces The Obsidian 9

    Rugged Suppressors has just announced the Obsidian 9 – a new edition to their already popular modular pistol caliber suppressor line. Besides obviously being built for suppressing the 9mm cartridge, the Obsidian 9 shaves a bit of length in each configuration compared to its .45ACP kin.

    Although I have yet to test a Rugged pistol silencer, industry friends that I know and trust have remarked that the Obsidian is among the quietest setups available. High praise in a market full of performers. Rugged offers a variety of mounting options, including a three-lug module for subgun or pistol caliber carbine use. In addition, if you are already invested in SilencerCo products, Rugged offers some interchangeability with some pistons and mounts.

    Details, specifications and pricing are listed below.

    The Obsidian 9 mount is machined from 17-4 stainless steel barstock. We strategically place the engraving on the thickest cross section of the 17-4 stainless steel mount for fast and easy replacement should the suppressor become damaged beyond repair, it also serves to make the Obsidian 9 infinitely upgradable in the future.

    In a class of it’s own the Obsidian 9 is nearly half it’s size in the short configuration.

    Already a proud owner of an Obsidian 45? The Obsidian 9 is fully compatible with Obsidian 45 accessories. Pistons, fixed mounts, fixed barrel spacers and 3 lug mounts all are interchangable with the Obsidian 9!

    Obsidian 9 baffles are machined from 17-4 Stainless Steel barstock and heat treated with three indexing tabs for proper alignment. With serviceability in mind the Obsidian baffles create a gas seal that virtually eliminates carbon build up between the baffles and tube.
