9mm Silencer Consideration in 2022

Today we are talking about the world of 9mm silencer considerations and how they apply to the end user. Well… the top five considerations at least…lol. There are a lot more but for the sanctity of keeping this blog to reasonable in length, we will just do five for now.

The 9mm silencer is one of the most common silencers on the market and as such can be used for many things and come in many configurations.

Top five 9mm Silencer Considerations

The list of things that we look for in a 9mm silencer are as follows:

  1. Sound Suppression – This seems obvious, but not everyone looks at this metric first. We want the best performance for our purchase dollar and to be honest… Isnt this the reason for getting a silencer to start with? Our Mystic X and Infiniti X silencers are some of the best performing 9mm silencers available and when combined with quality sub-sonic ammunition, the performance is stellar!
  2. Weight – The next thing we look at here is weight. Nobody wants a brick screwed onto the end of their rifle, so when we design a 9mm silencer like the Mystic X we look at the cost in weight to add features versus the sound performance added. this is where solid models in CAD software save tons of time and expense, we model them up and run evaluations on them then cut out the top designs for head to head real world silencer comparison testing. No amount of simulation software can compete with the perception of the human ear. So we look at the weight during the design phase and work the designs based on the metals we choose.
  3. Material – Since I just mentioned it in #2, let’s go ahead and talk about the material next. We have used all sorts of metal in the past to make our suppressors with, but over time we have slowly settled on just a few materials because of cost versus performance of each of the metals we use now. Titanium is our most costly metal we use at this time.,,well by volume at least. It is super strong, super rigid and super light weight. It doesn’t hold up to ablative abrasion as good as some others though. 17-4 PH Stainless Steel is the next metal and it takes weight for cost with titanium. more cost effective, but heavier is the biggest problem we are looking at most of time in the lab. The next metal is 300 series stainless steel, this choice is great where cost is a problem but it trades cost for weight AND strength, so if the solution doesnt require a light weight super strong design, this one is a great choice. Lots of silencers on the market are made from this grade of stainless steel. Next is aluminum alloys, these alloys are almost universally used in rimfire silencers and pistol caliber silencers as the pressures are low enough to not cause material failure in the aluminum. This metal is not really suitable for rifle use in the United States since the cost in money and time is so great here. There are other metals, but these are the most common for us.
  4. Multi-role use – The 9mm silencer of today needs to be able to fill roles other than its namesake. Our Mystic X family of silencers are all rated for many calibers other than the native markings on the suppressor. This gives the end user the most diverse option list possible when it comes to platforms that the silencer is effective on. This metric is why we recommend people get one the Mystic X suppressors for their first silencer as it allows them to try it out on lots of host weapons for the cost of one unit. Then once they find a specific use case that rises to the top, so to speak, then we can work with the user in choosing a role specific model for that one job freeing up the Mystic X for other tasks.
  5. Cost – We all know that silencers in the USA are costly to get in the form of time, money and peace of mind. These three factors contribute greatly to the decision on which suppressor to choose for the first one or even 2nd or 3rd addition at some point… So this is balanced with our cans by having the same model available in more than one metal choice. Like the Mystic X and the Infiniti X are essentially identical other than metal choice. This gives the user the choice of lighter weight at great monetary cost or heavier and less monetary expenditure.

The 9mm silencer of today is adaptable to many calibers and firearms.

As you can see, the thinking behind making a 9mm silencer is not so cut and dried. If you have a favorite host firearm like a Sig P226 or a 9mm AR1-15 Carbine or even a 357 lever gun, then give us a call we are here to help you keep those guns quiet!

The Regulator Ti is the worlds best 22LR Rimfire Silencer.

When you are looking for a the pinnacle in rimfire suppressors, the only place to look is Liberty Suppressors and the Regulator Ti. The reason for this is simple, we have almost 20 years in the silencer trade and rimfire suppressors are a specialty of ours. We started out with some early designs that most people dont even know we made, such as the Sparrow silencer (yes, we made one before another company came out with the same model on their design). Then we made a new design and called it the Sparrowhawk rimfire suppressor.

The Kodiak TL predecessor rimfire silencer.

Next came the Kodiak and Kodiak TL rimfire silencers with several advantages of each one, and from these came the Essence. The Essence was our first all titanium rimfire suppressor and gave us much of the inspiration for the Regulator Ti. We drew inspiration for the baffle design as well as the material choice and this made the Regulator Ti one of the lightest AND quietest rimfire silencers ever made.

The regulator Ti is one of the lightest rimfire silencers on the market today.

To understand how good the Regulator Ti sounds you honestly have to hear it in person, but to give you an idea… The Regulator Ti resembles what a small pneumatic staple gun sounds like when fired on a rimfire pistol like the Ruger MK IV series of firearms. This is the best description I have been able to come up with over the years. It is surprising when people fire it, especially if they have never fired a rimfire pistol with a silencer like the Regulator Ti suppressor installed. The usual reaction is snickering or chuckles followed up with a request to shoot it some more. Once you have had the pleasure of shooting subsonic, suppressed 22LR firearms, you will not want to shoot without a suppressor installed ever again. The design of the baffles is such that the gasses are forced to recirculate and the heat in the gas column is bled off through the tube wall as well as the volume allows for reduction in gass pressure to combine together for the perfect trifecta of rimfire silencer perfection.

If you want more information about the Regulator Ti, Regulator or Vector rimfire silencers just click on one of the photos above of the Regulator Ti to be taken to the webpage and you can navigate around from there easily. To talk to us about getting one of your own, just give us a call or shoot us an email to support@libertycans.net or 706-661-6911.

Of course, this is our opinion so take it for what it is worth, till next time, keep your powder dry…

Choosing the Right Suppressor for Your Gun

Choosing the Right Suppressor for Your Gun

At Liberty Suppressors in Georgia, we offer some of the best silencers for guns that you can find. From our custom fits to our quality materials, each suppressor is a work of art. If you’re looking to join our family of firearm enthusiasts by purchasing one of these great pieces, then keep reading to learn about how to find the right suppressor for your gun, and contact us with any questions!

The Caliber

The first thing to consider when shopping for a suppressor is the caliber of firearm you plan to use it with. A small-caliber gun, like a .22, will need a smaller suppressor than a large-caliber gun, like a .50. If you’re not sure what size suppressor you need, then our team at Liberty Suppressors can help you figure it out.

Length of the Barrel

The length of the barrel is another factor to consider when shopping for a suppressor. The longer the barrel, the more room the suppressor has to do its job. So, if you have a short-barreled gun, then you’ll need a shorter suppressor. Conversely, if you have a long-barreled gun, then you can choose from a variety of suppressor lengths.

The Sound Reduction

Finally, you need to consider the amount of sound reduction you need. This will depend on how often you plan to use the suppressor and for what purpose. If you’re a hunter and you only plan to use the suppressor occasionally, then you might not need as much sound reduction as someone who uses their suppressor for regular target practice.

Knowing Where To Start

With so many different suppressor options available to you, it can be difficult to know where to start. That’s why the experts at Liberty Suppressors created the Mystic X with first time buyers in mind! This suppressor is incredibly versatile, rated for over 70 different calibers, ranging from 22lr up to 300 Win Mag.

At Liberty Suppressors, we have a variety of suppressors to choose from, and our team can help you find the perfect one for your gun. Explore our selection today!

The Benefits of Gun Suppressors

From saving your ears while you are on a hunt to helping you quickly find the target after each shot, a suppressor is a great addition to any arsenal. At Liberty Suppressors, we have designed some of the best suppressors on the market. Whether you are looking for hunting, target practice,  competition, or home defense applications, at Liberty Suppressors, we have something that fits the bill. Here are four benefits of owning and utilizing a suppressor.

Hearing Protection

Without hearing protection, gunshots can, and often do, result in hearing loss and degradation. So, instead of bracing for that shot while you’re stalking an elk or having to bring hearing protection on each and every hunt, a suppressor can help save your hearing over the long haul

Reduced Recoil

Due to the dissipation of gasses within the silencer itself, those pressurized gasses leaving the muzzle leave less of an impact in the form of recoil — making it easier to find the target after each shot. If you are looking to reduce recoil, a silencer is a great way to do it.

Improved Accuracy and Reduced Flinch

While muzzle breaks are commonly used to reduce recoil, they produce one heck of a muzzle blast. A silencer not only reduces recoil, but also nearly eliminates muzzle blast — helping every shot to more comfortably and efficiently find its target.

Better Shooting Experience

Because of reduced sound, recoil, and muzzle blast, silencers simply just make for a better shooting experience whether you are on the range or in the woods. They make for great tools when teaching someone to shoot and they can help you to protect your hearing for years to come!

Whether you are a hunter, hobbyist, or simply looking for a new tool to improve your shooting experience, a silencer is a great thing to add to your arsenal.

Fixed Barrel Adapters or Boosters

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?

The Liberty Suppressor 3 lug silencer mount is designed for suppressors like the Mystic X, Infiniti X, Cosmic and Centurion.

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:

9mm

22 LR

5.56/.223

.308

.300 blk

.45 acp

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.

Infiniti X multipurpose lightweight silencer
Infinti X Multipurpose Silencer

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.

Which rimfire suppressor is right for me?

The Vector rimfire suppressor is perfect for a 22LR pistol.

Today we look at which rimfire suppressor we recommend for the 22 LR enthusiast.

When you go down the rabbit hole of 22LR rimfire suppressors, it is important to figure out what your personal needs are when it comes to this amazing firearm caliber.

Do you want the absolute quietest platform available?

Do you want to use your silencer and not have to worry about cleaning it very often?

Do you need several different configurations to work on many platforms?

These are just a few of the questions that many rimfire silencer owners end up asking themselves when they choose a rimfire suppressor. Some of these questions ask the new, or even seasoned NFA owner, to take a hard look at themselves and see what is a real need in their mind as opposed to what they think they want based on marketing hype or peer pressure.

Once the end user has found what really matters to them, it really boils down to just one question. Do I want the Regulator rimfire suppressor or the Vector rimfire suppressor? Let’s take a short look at the differences and what this means for the end user.

Regulator Rimfire Suppressor

The Regulator rimfire suppressor is designed for flat out performance. The absolute quietest silencer money can buy…bar none. If having the literal “staple gun” quiet 22 silencer is your goal, then the Regulator is for you.

Regulator Rimfire suppressor

The only drawback (if you can call it that), that we can come up with, is that to maintain this level of performance, the silencer needs to be cleaned regularly, on the order of every 500 rounds or so. This doesn’t sound like many, but if you look at most rimfire firearms, they normally need cleaning in the same sort of time frame as well. The Regulator can go a bit longer but the silencer will be harder to dismantle the longer you wait. Once again, for most people, this isnt an issue.

Vector Rimfire Suppressor

The Vector silencer does things differently. It is designed from the outset for the person who wants the maintenance of their silencer to be easy even after several thousand rounds of use. We went into the project with this in mind along with simple design so it is easy to assemble and modular so it can be configured to fit the users needs when it comes to a rimfire suppressor. We have tested the Vector on a Ruger 22/45 rimfire pistol and after more than 2500 continuous rounds of fire, the silencer came apart with minimal effort. We even have a video of this process that can be viewed here!

Vector Rimfire Suppressor

All of this is a moot point though, if you do not have quality subsonic 22LR ammunition. For this we chose to use CCI Standard Velocity ammunition. This ammunition is subsonic naturally and is also VERY consistent over all for a bulk available ammo. If you are looking for our recommendation for a 22LR rimfire cartridge, this is it.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

Infiniti X is a lightweight beast!

With the launch of the Infiniti X we have completed our 2019 trifecta of suppressors and this marks a huge milestone in our lineup. We are still working on several things in the project area, but these three cans are huge dreams that we have finally gotten to hold in our hands. The Whitetail is the first true integral hunting rifle designed for hunters in mind, we made the whole thing for that purpose. This means you can have either the Infiniti X for many rifles or the Whitetail for a dedicated system… OR BOTH…

If you think you have seen the best possible hunting rifle silencer and it was not the Infiniti X, then you need to see it before you make your decision. The Infiniti X is the lightest rifle silencer we know of and it incredibly quiet for a suppressor this size. When you want the best, this is it. We love pairing our Infiniti X with several different rifles but the Bergara B14 Ridge rifles have really impressed up with their ” out of the box” performance. We can confidently recommend any one of these rifles to be paired with our silencers for a wonderful hunting system that wont let you down when it counts the most.

We also have several adapters to compliment the Infiniti X when you need to adapt it to other systems, so just go take a look at the different options on our website to see if the adapter you need is there already, and if it is not there, just shoot us an email and we will see about getting a custom one made just for you.
