The Ninth Day Of Christmas: Pistol Silencers

    In the movies, pistol silencers are usually associated with spies and villains with a classic ‘pew pew’ report when fired. In reality, paired with the right subsonic ammunition, this category of suppressor can turn your favorite handgun into a relatively quiet lead slinger. In the ninth day installment of TFB Christmas, I am also including silencers designed for submachine guns and pistol caliber carbines.

    When shopping for your new un-noise maker, make sure to include your the proper attachement system/mount. Like forgetting to buy batteries for little Jimmy’s new remote control car, you may be disappointed when you (eventually) get to go play with your new toy.

    Rugged Obsidian 9 – 

    ADAPT™ Modular Technology
    ADAPT™ Modular Technology allows the Obsidian 9 to be configured in a standard 7.8″ or short 4.85″ configuration within seconds.

    Dual Taper Lock™ Mounting System
    Patented quick detach mounting system ensures wobble free firing. 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 infinitely upgradable in the future.

    Non-Slotted Piston Design
    A common problem with pistol caliber suppressors is the gas blowback associated with slotted pistons. The Obsidian 9’s non-slotted piston system solves this issue by creating a full circumference gas seal.

    Material Selection at its Finest
    Constructed of aluminum and 17-4 PH Stainless Steel, the Obsidian is completely user serviceable and Belt Fed Rated for 9mm and subsonic 300BLK.

    Bowers Vers 45 and ASP 45

     

    This silencer is also suitable for 9mm and subsonic .30 caliber applications such as the .300 Whisper and .300 Blackout. It is 11.25” overall and 1 3⁄4” diameter. It is strong and light, weighing approximately 18 oz. (varies depending on the selected insert). The matte anodizing is applied over a tumbled finish.
    The Bowers Group Vers 45 features the proven AIMS™ Adapter Integrating Mount System, which comes with one Versadapt™ thread adapter of your choice. Additional inserts may be ordered separately.
    Please consider the purchase of a Griptastic™/SUPCOV™ high-temp insulating silicone silencer cover for use with this silencer. Any of our 1.75” diameter covers are appropriate for the Vers 45. Model GT1.75X10.5 will provide full coverage.

    The ASP is 1.5” in diameter by 7” long, and as such is one of the smallest .45 pistol silencers offered. Weighing a scant 5 ounces, everything but the insert is aluminum to keep weight to an absolute minimum. The finish is tumbled and matte anodized.

    This silencer will provide excellent performance on the HK USP Tactical and MK23 SOCOM, on standard-length 1911 variants, some Sigs, the occasional carbine and even Beretta 92Fs. The ASP is intended to cycle on .45 ACP pistols using full powered ammunition and 230 grain bullets. We recommend the brass cased CCI Blazer ammo as a budget conscious full-powered round. The can will continue to perform well using weaker rounds and calibers, but the firearm will not cycle in most cases due to a lack of sufficient recoil being generated by the round.

    Surefire Masterfire Holster – $169

    The revolutionary SureFire MASTERFIRE® Rapid Deploy Holster (RDH) is a lightweight, durable holster that provides a tactical advantage with its ergonomic, one-of-a-kind design. It securely holds most any railed handgun equipped with a SureFire H-Series WeaponLight, positioning it at an advantageous angle for a fast, consistent draw stroke. A proprietary lug-and-cam system locks the firearm in place with Level 3 retention, utilizing both a primary and secondary locking system, which is released by an ergonomic thumb-break for rapid weapon deployment. The holster’s open design also accommodates most any red-dot optics and/or suppressor.

    Unlike most holsters, the MASTERFIRE RDH interfaces with the WeaponLight, not the firearm,—so you can use one holster for multiple handguns. But what truly sets this remarkable holster apart is its unique light-activation switch, which can be set to automatically activate any of the H-Series WeaponLights when the handgun is drawn, saving valuable time in high-stress situations and making one-handed manipulations easier. This feature can also be de-activated when automatic light activation is not advantageous.

    This versatile holster is also customizable and can be outfitted to fit most any hand size thanks to two included release-button adapters. It’s also adjustable to fit up to 2 ½” duty belts. For sheer versatility; a secure hold; smooth, rapid weapon deployment; and the ability to accommodate most any handgun or handgun accessory, there’s no other holster like the MASTERFIRE RDH.
