Can would be a dedicated 9mm.

Yes, in fact it's my favorite.

ETA:

I think this is the worst picture I have ever taken

Barrel info?
What makes you say "favorite"?

Barrels aren't that easy to find I think. Plus they require fitting and aren't very "drop-in"

Of course you can always have your existing barrel extended and threaded.

Barrel is an EFK. It's my favorite because I like the BHP better than any other handgun even when not suppressed. That being said it runs very reliably with the can. Even though I don't have any metering equipment the same can "seems" louder on my Glock 19. Perhaps that has something to do with the steel frame.

Cool
Does EFK have distributors or is it $235 directly from them?

Did you have any figment issues or concentricity issues with the EFK barrel?

No issues with with fitting but the chamber is really tight. I have had some issues with once fired brass sticking.

As long as a threaded bbl is available, any pistol makes a great host. IMO buy a 45 cal can and not 9mm. You lock yourself in with a 9. A 45 can has multiple uses. Once my 45 can comes in i'll pm you. it's going on a few hand guns, sbr pistol caliber uppers and 357 lever action.

45 cans, in my experience, don't work too well on 9mm guns. The bore is just too large. If you are only going to buy 1 can, maybe a 45 makes sense. You give up a little performance to gain versatility. In the real world though I would just get both a 45 and 9mm can.

I seem to remember silencer tests doing testing with a 45 TiRant, and found it to bring 9mm down to within 1 dB of a Tirant 9.

I didn't see that, but I Blackside is not that great with 9mm, but is a good can for 45. Perhaps its all in the design.

Awesome.
Where do you shoot?

I have two glock 9mms with threaded barrels already.
