I picked up my Omega 9k a few weeks ago and thought you would all like some pics. I have about 600 rounds through it.

So far I have shot it with the Silencero fixed thread mount on the MKE's and the AR and with the Rugged 3 lug mount on the MKE's. It worked 100% with both mounts. Not quite as quiet as my Octane but way more maneuverable. The Octane is so long it is a more of a "sometimes" can. The Omega is so short and light I could leave it on all the time, I hardly notice it.

I also compared the Rugged 3 lug mount to the Silencerco 3 lug mount. The Rugged is much tighter with no wobble whereas there is definitely some wobble in the Silencerco mount. The Rugged is also of course way shorter.

I do recommend using grease on the mount threads to make sure you can unscrew the mount from the can for cleaning. This especially applies when using the Rugged mount since there is not much material to grip onto to loosen it. If you get the mount stuck in the can, just mount the can on a three lug then unscrew the can from the mount.

I am really pleased with the combo, it is an awesome 9mm SBR can.

Awesome and thanks for sharing the pics. The 9K looks so at home on sub guns. I can't wait for mine to be approved.

Im impress by how short the Rugged is

What's measured OAL with the Rugged mount? Between that and these pictures my money is trying to claw its way out of my pocket like the night of the living dead.

Love the 9K on SBRs




and its shorter than a TiRant 9s if you use the Rugged 3-Lug mount:

Wish I had purchased that for my K Scorpion instead of my Gemtech Multi mount.

seattlite that TiRant is a nice looking suppressor. Which do you prefer?

Looks awesome! Hope mine clears one day.

You mentioned if the 3-lug coupler gets stuck in the can to simply mount the can and rotate it against the 3-lug to loosen the coupler. I thought about this when my Griffin 3-lug got stuck in my Octane, but I was worried doing that could damage the 3-lug coupler, making it fit looser and wobble in the future. The lack of a wrench for the Rugged 3-lug coupler is the only thing that's prevented me from buying one. What are your thoughts on the potential for this to damage the coupler?

You will love it, much different than the Octane.

I thought about that for awhile too. I wish there was a wrench, we should bug them to make one. I have even thought about making my own out of some delrin pins.

The first time or two I shot it it was really stuck in there. I have had copper grease on it since new but it still got stuck. After cleaning the threads a few times and putting a little grease on all the contact points it seems easier now to remove, although today I still needed two hands to unscrew the suppressor from the mount while on the gun. That seems pretty normal for me, I often have to use a wrench to remove the direct thread mount too.

I am not too worried about causing undue wear on the three lug barrel, the mount is aluminum so I assume it would wear first. I think any wobble comes more from the fit of the steel insert which should be fine. Worst case somewhere way down the road one could always replace the barrel if needed. I will still likely use the direct thread mount sometimes too, prolonging any wear. Between the two mounting systems I should be ok for a good long time.

Not worried about the barrel nearly as much as the coupler. It seems like the inside of it could be deformed slightly by cranking on it like that to remove it.

I need a 3D printer so I can make wrenches for things that should come with wrenches.
Link Posted: 12/15/2016 8:31:31 PM EST
The mating surfaces on the inside seems pretty thick and sturdy, I am not too worried about it. It is just being rotated so I think wear would be minimal. Honestly, unless we get a really good fitting wrench, it would probably be more likely to wear the outside of it trying to loosen it with an ill fitting tool. I just used some high temp barbecue gloves with the little dots on them to rotate it off.

I like the 9k on the SBR...it has has a deeper tone and just a little quieter than the TiRant 9s. The TiRant 9s feels really nice on a pistol.

That red dot on the mp5 full size...does it clear the hood of the front sight?

Good to know, I would like to try a TiRant sometime to compare.

No, the red dot sits right at the top of the front sight blade. The mount is made by B&T specifically for Aimpoints on the MP5.

It should. I too run a T1 on B&T low mount and dot sits atop front sight post. Nice sight picture, IMO.

Only a little quieter? As a 9s owner and potential 9k buyer, I was hoping for a significant difference.

Per AAC, the 9s provides 22dB reduction dry, and per SilencerCo, the 9k meters at 131.5dB. Unsuppressed 147gr meters at about 157dB..so yeah...the 9k is just a little quieter. The 9k does have a little deeper tone than the 9s so that with a little dB reduction might be "significant". If you want a more "significant" difference you'll need more volume.

I seldom use the 9s on the 9mm SBRs....the 9k and the Obsidian now get used the most.

any 300blk host photos yet? mine's in jail, but I'm planning to use it on a 7" 300blk (talked to SiCo who assured me that both the Omega30 and Omega 9k are safe on 7" subs/supers, despite the "official" number being 8"). Not gonna be super quiet, but we'll see how it goes...

I used a 1/2x28 3-Lug adapter on the 7.75" barrel. Don't know too much about 300BLK...would the 3-lug adapter and the 3-Lug Omega 9K be good to go using subs and supers?

Thanks. That looks pretty slick. 

As for 300blk with a 3lug, MAC demonstrates such a beast here (not a omega 9k, but since it is also rated for 7-8" 300blk supers, this would work the same way). He shoots 9mm from MPX, takes the can off the tri-lug adapter and puts it on an AK with a tri-lug adapter and goes to town. 


I tried posting a video but it doesn't seem to work. here's the link

griffin sells a 5/8x24 3-lug adapter that will work nicely on a 300 blackout.

At a recent local Quiet Riot shoot (i live down the street from SiCo), I was talking to one of the engineers who told me that when they published the manual, they hadn't tested it below 8" but since then they have verified that it's fine down to 7". I sent them an email to confirm, and the CS said as long as the rounds are stabilizing, it will be fine down to 7".

I've never seen anyone "rate" a 3-lug adapter, but griffin's website describes their 3 lug adapter (the 3-lug itself) thus, "The 5/8x24 is meant to provide a 3 Lug mount to 30 caliber barrels", "Made from 17-4ph stainless and Melonite QPQ treated." So you're fine on that end. 

as for the actual mount that attaches to your suppressor, I think someone would need to reach out to the company itself to get some clarification.

Griffin's Optimus is rated for 300blk in both sub and super (and 5.56) with 3-lug.

Regarding the Omega 9k with the Silencerco 3-lug mount using 300blk super/subsonics...I sent the following to Silencerco and got a response:

ME: I'd like to use the Omega 9k with the Silencerco 3-Lug mount using 300BLK. Is the 3-Lug mount good to go with 300BLK subs and supers?
SilencerCo: Yes, that will be fine. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I'm still awaiting word back from Rugged regarding the Obsidian and their 3-Lug mount with 300blk
