Ok, the info is live:

This is what happens when guys who have been making ultralight ultraquiet rifle suppressors for over a decade turn their attention to 9mm:

A pistol can that’s only 7 inches and 7.9 ounces, but meters with the best 9mm cans on the market, all of which are larger and heavier.

Then you can remove the module and run it in “short” mode, which is tiny — 4.4″ long and 5.5 ounces. Put that on a Glock 43X and you have a suppressed pistol package that is actually compact and still very quiet with 165gr HUSH.

Oh, and it’s rated for 300 Blackout subsonic (min bbl 5.5″) and 300 Blackout full-power (min bbl 8″).

Did I mention 350 Legend? It’s rated for that too.

It’ll eat a combat load from your 9mm subgun for breakfast and ask for more.

What's on the muzzle of your Uzi?

If it's 1/2-28, you can use it as-is and replace the spring in the booster with the fixed barrel spacer. If it's another thread, you can use a compatible piston and our fixed barrel spacer. If it's something else, or tri lug, you can just get the mount adapter you need, the rear end is standard "booster" threads.

    I live in Cheyenne so I could bring it by and discuss options?

    Does this have a standard mounting thread size, I.e. can I buy and install a SiCo tri lug mount? Or is there going to be a TBAC tri lug?

    How is the blowback on PCCs? I shoot lefty, so my face is right by the ejection port and most 9mm cans seem to noticeably increase the gas coming out the port.

    Thanks, looks f’ing awesome!

    Zak can you help me understand why the long 9mm pistol configuration is 141dB at the ear, and the short is 138dB? Shouldn't the longer config be quieter?

    I put a 30BA in jail and buy 7 brakes.... 2 months later you come out with the CB version.

    I put an Obsidian in jail 3 months ago.... you come out with this.

    Are you conspiring with my ex ???? 😭

    You guys rock! Keep up the good work!

    It uses standard booster threads. I'll have to check with the guys what that spec is, but during testing we used other trilugs, boosters, etc.

    I don't have any way to quantify blowback but we were shooting mag dumps on a CMMG 9mm upper on one of our M16 lowers and the gas wasn't crazy.

    Yeah, look at the entire row for 9x19 pistol, full power, everyone has the EAR right around 141-142, a quieter MSL, and a MSR somewhere in the middle. This is because a full size can has a lot more port pop-- that's the 141-142 dB. The MSR position is halfway loud because the ejection port is on the right. The MSL number is quietest because it is shielded from the port pop because there's no ejection port on that side.

    No problem, just think about what you want to do in 6 months and always do it NOW

    If you want "24" / Hollywood quiet in a super short can, just shoot HUSH/STELTH through this can. It is actually reasonably quiet and only adds like 4" to your pistol. We didn't meter on the 43X but it sounded very quiet to me, like shootable, and I've shot a lot of 9 cans w/o ears.

    I gave up a long time ago with TBAC. Its just easier to order the new can the min it comes out, get it when you get it and shoot away. Its not always the cheap route but what the hell. On a side note, where are those FLY9 videos we were promised :)
