Nice pic, that is the first gen K baffle you are showing there. Gen 2 has some modifications. And yes, you need to practice with the suppressor on the gun, the POI will shift with the can on it.

Hmmm... I have an Outback and it has K baffles in it. Now, I do know that my Mk9K can has two different baffle designs in it, one being a flared stamped baffle while the other is a machined T12 designed baffle.

I agree, the only suppressor that is quieter that I've found is the AWC Mk9 which is about 4 inches longer than the MK9K... I've found that the UZI is quieter than the MP5 suppressed overall. Best ammo to use is the 147 grain SXT by Winchester... It's VERY quiet.

The Mk9K is threaded 1/2x32 for the 9mm... that particular gun has a threaded muzzle not a three lug barrel. I orginally got it for the Colt 9mm SMG but have since sold that gun.

The Mk9 from AWC is 12 inches in length. Yeah, it's a big can but honestly, nothing on the market compares to it's effectiveness.

Got your PM and replied... shouldn't be a problem.

Yeah, I've got the three lug Mk9 from AWC too... LOL... As for the suppression of the stamped baffles vs. the K baffles... I'm not sure which is better.

I've got several Mk9 suppressors... some have the stamped baffles and some have the newer design. Here's my issue with the K baffle... they are a pressure driven design that work better with the more pressure you put to them. This is why they work so well in large rifle calibers. The stamped baffles are an older technology and are quite the work horse design. Both designs suppress about the same but the sound is slightly different. I should run them side by side for a comparison some time...

On the PM, no joke. I just need to get my butt in gear and do it.

It might. Joe is good people and he does know his stuff... he could do with a better product promotion campaign though. I've only shot a few of his suppressors and while impressed, I didn't have a chance to put them through some serious shooting to see how they hold up. I've thought about buying a couple of his suppressors to test.

I did hear a very interesting rumor yesterday I'll share here. There is a company in Switzerland called SST (Sound Suppression Technologies) who may be buying a place in Pennsylvania to produce their cans here. When overseas, I had a chance to shoot some guns with their suppressors mounted and they are world class all the way.

As a note, to date, they wouldn't sell to the US government due to the 68 sporting purpose clause in the 68 GCA... Maybe this is their end around.
