One question we often get asked is how are you supposed to use our line of Fixed Barrel adapters and Mounts to get the most out of your 9mm Silencer, like the Mystic X or the Infiniti X or our .45 ACP Silencer the Cosmic?
It all comes down to barrel threading and making sure you know what thread your barrel is threaded to and double checking that against the standard list of caliber threadings that exist on the internet. As well as knowing the caliber and barrel ratings of your individual suppressor. The list of standard caliber threadings can be found here.
You can find the barrel and caliber ratings on your individual suppressor on the Liberty Suppressors silencer product webpage at Liberty Suppressor Silencers. I’ll focus in on the most popular calibers and suppressors here and discuss some ways that they can be mounted to your host firearm to give you an idea of how it works. The calibers discussed will be:
These calibers will cover most everything from plinking to defensive and hunting applications and are great choices for beginner shooters to get into recreational target shooting.
If you are the proud of owner of a Liberty Suppressors 9mm multi caliber silencer like the Mystic X or the Infiniti X or our .45 acp multi caliber silencer the Cosmic, congrats! You will be able to shoot every caliber listed above through your Suppressor/firearm combo and much, much more.
Starting with the 9mm Suppressor varieties, it’s fairly simple to run those on the host firearm of your choice. Most all of the standard .22 lr and 9mm host thread will be running in 1/x28. It’s important to do your homework on 9mm, though. the ones that are produced in Europe might come in a non standard metric threading, such as 13.5×1 LH. It’s important to know the threading BEFORE you order your Booster Assembly or Fixed Barrel Adapter.
If you’re running your 9mm multi caliber suppressor on a handgun that is also chambered in 9mm, you would need the 1/2×28 Booster Assembly. That is our version of the Nielsen device that allows modern duty type pistols to be able to cycle when they’re running suppressed. The Piston inside the Booster Assembly can be changed out with one of a different threading and that allows you to be able to run the same Booster Assembly housing on a pistol that’s threaded and chambered in a different caliber. For instance, .45 acp can be had in a .578×28 variety. Depending entirely on the threads that are on your host barrel.
If you’re running your multi caliber 9mm suppressor on a selection of pistol caliber carbines and rifle caliber carbines you’ll want to pick the matching Fixed Barrel Adapter. Again, the .22 lr and 9mm varieties will be in 1/2×28 Fixed Barrel Adapters, for the most part, but 9mm is still tricky here, as well, so be sure of the correct threading BEFORE you order.
Both .308 and .300 blk will be standardized on 5/8×24 Fixed Barrel Adapters. Luckily, there’s much less chance that these would be found in an odd metric threading than on some of the other calibers so you’ll be in pretty good shape with a 5/8×24 Fixed Barrel Adapter but, here, it’s important to pay attention to your caliber and barrel length rating that your can is rated for.
Lastly, we’ll cover the .45 acp multi caliber Silencer, the Cosmic. All the same methods of attachment hold true here, as well but the Cosmic comes with a .45 acp bore diameter that will allow you to run both .45 acp and .40 S&W, as well as some 45/70 rifle rounds and more. You won’t be able to shoot .45 acp through the Mystic X multi caliber suppressor because the bore diameter there is bored for 9mm and equivalent bullet diameters.
We here at Liberty Suppressors realize that this doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface on the information that’s really out there when it comes to firearms, suppression and ballistics. We hope this you a good idea of how the basic Fixed Barrel Adapters interface with your multi caliber silencers and if were wondering about anything else that didn’t get talked about here, you can always call or shoot us an email and our knowledgeable Customer Service Team will be happy to help you out.
