9mm is one of the most prominent pistol calibers. Thanks to its nice balance of weight and speed, it has become widely popular and is used by the United States Army. 9mm pistols come in many shapes and sizes, from tiny pocket guns to double stack full-sized pistols Picking out the best suppressor for your 9mm pistol can be a daunting task with the number of suppressors available.
We have selected six of the best 9mm suppressors. The suppressors we selected run the gamut from small to large and highly effective to less effective. No matter what your use for the weapon is, there is a suppressor on this list that will work for you, and will hopefully take some of the guesswork out and further guide your search for the best 9mm suppressor.
Silencer Maxim 9
The SilencerCo Maxim 9 is one of a kind and is the first of its type. However, as such, it is an extremely expensive suppressor. The Maxim 9 isn’t just a suppressor at all; it’s a handgun that comes with a fully integral suppressor.
Since the suppressor is fully integrated, there is no added size whatsoever. The handgun is reasonably sized, easily holstered, and is capable of shooting all kinds of 9mm ammo. It’s the first such handgun and is a very interesting piece of weapon’s history.
Advanced Armament Illusion 9
The 9mm specialist works with the sights already on your pistol. ACC achieved this through embracing what is known as an “eccentric” suppressor design. In particular, this means more of the can’s volume is below the bore, instead of equally distributed. This makes the Illusion a mount-and-shoot affair, no need to upgrade to high-rise sights to get on target.
Stainless steel is utilized on the inside part of the suppressor. The blast baffle uses a steel coating that allows the ammo to move out smoothly. You can remove the baffle surface from the tip for easy cleaning.
Sig Sauer SRD 9
Sig Sauer only moved into suppressors within the last five years. However, as to be expected with Sig Sauer products, their suppressors are extremely high quality. This suppressor can only handle 9mm ammunition but does so effectively.
This design adds a strong body without adding lots of weight. Stainless steel baffles add a good layout for handling a shot. One end on the suppressor uses a securing setup that offers a strong link from the unit to the gun. It takes just a second for you to screw this in. This model can work with tilting barrel pistols. The recoil produced by this mechanism is easier to handle as required.
It’s difficult to make a suppressor list without a SilencerCo Omega K rearing its head. That goes for the ubiquitous 9mm. Residing on the tonier end of the market, the Omega 9K is hardly money wasted. It’s light, compact and does what it was designed to do – keep a lid on your noisy guns.
This is one of the smaller suppressors on the list, and the weight is pretty low due to being made of Stellite and Stainless steel. While it is still decently large when compared to a 9mm pistol, this could still potentially be carried. This suppressor could serve nearly any purpose.
Gemtech was one of the first companies to offer suppressors, and all of their research has led to the GM series, which is their most advanced suppressor to date. While you could still potentially carry a weapon with this suppressor, the added length would make it much more difficult than the SilencerCo Omega 9. This would excel for general shooting. The suppressor is decently durable, as it is coated with Cerakote.
The other value to the GM-9, durability, and ease of maintenance. A black Cerakote finished aluminum tube; the suppressor is up to the test of general use. And cleaning, the monocore baffle makes it a second thought. It easily separates from the tube and takes any worry about getting baffles out of order of the equation.
CMMG DefCan 9
Not every 9mm suppressor need be designed for handguns. A fact plain as day to AR specialists CMMG. Jumping into the noise reduction game this past year, the company tailored the pistol-caliber members of its DefCan line for sub-guns and AR pistols, rifles and carbines.
The suppressor adds a scant 10 ounces to a firearm, which is akin to adding many lighting options to the fore of a rail. Aluminum construction keeps the unit light, as well as imparting it with some desirable thermal properties, dissipating heat in a flash.
