About The Dead Air Odessa-9
The Odessa-9 is the most modular and adaptable pistol suppressor ever manufactured. Built for accuracy and ultimate versatility, its super low profile allows the shooter to see more of the target without obscuring the sight picture, and fit any role from ultra-compact to ultra-suppression.
Every detail of the traditional handgun suppressor was scrutinized. From unneeded volume and excess material, to components that loosen when they shouldn’t. The Odessa-9 has been optimized to provide incredible performance in a tiny, adaptable, and robust package. Every machined component of the suppressor is made from 17-4 PH stainless steel to bring ultimate strength and performance to the product.
The Odessa Baffle System
The ODESSA-9 baffle system provides ultimate versatility and performance. It contains a total of 11 baffles with a specific order. Note that each baffle is numbered. The lower the number, the tighter the bore and the closer it is to the rear of the suppressor (firearm muzzle side). This reduces the possibility of bullet strikes on baffles if a bullet does not travel true to the bore path. Always stack the baffles in an ascending order from the Booster Cylinder to the Front Cap.
