My Gem-Tech is nice but I HATE the fact that I can't take it apart to clean. In a few years I'll probably bite the bullet and have it converted to one I can take apart. I know a company or two offers the upgrade since only the outer tube is actually registered.

Yes, the Nano is compact...

..but I will pass on 148.2 db WET using 158 gr subsonics!

Unsuppressed is 159.3 db

Lots of wait time & expense for only 11.1 db of suppression!

Though my .40 Osprey is much larger.. features user changeable mounts, is also multi-caliber, the rectangular profile is OEM iron sight & bottom mount light/laser friendly, & other innovative features...

..but also has really respectable 9mm & .40 ear safe sound suppression when DRY numbers...!

.40 Osprey
161db unsuppressed with .40
127db w/40
Dry 34 db suppression with 180 gr .40
160 db unsuppressed with 9mm
124.9db w/9mm
Dry 35.1 db suppression with 147 gr 9mm

9mm Osprey
160db unsuppressed
124.9db w/9mm
Dry 35.1 db suppression with 147 gr 9mm

Fantastic numbers with 9mm out of a .40 suppressor...IMO!
And even better numbers can be achieved wet!

But....If going compact & wet in 9mm..

..the AWC Abraxis is & will continue to be my choice!
