Though my .40 Osprey is much larger..

..it features user disassembly, is also multi-caliber, OEM iron sight & bottom mount light/laser friendly, & other innovative features...

..but also has really respectable 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!


If going compact & wet in 9mm..

..the AWC Abraxis is & will continue to be my choice!
Wet, my Outback II is pretty quiet...like bolt racking quiet. However, dry it is still softer than unsuppressed.

Personally, for the purposes of functionality (offensive/defensive), I would not be opposed to using wipes in order to avoid having to spray the can before using it.

But I have not researched suppressor technology in a few years and right now, I'm good with weaponry and focusing on other areas of S&P. Areas covered so far this year have been armor, blades, transportation, etc.

I think I've bought my last gun/weapon for a while. My dealer is probably thinking I'm dead...
