9mm Host's

Post by jmz5 » 30 Aug 2013, 11:18

What does everyone use as a pistol host for their suppressors? I'm in the market for a new host.

From my research it seems a lot of people like the Sig 226 or the M&P.

The M&P has a crap load of problems. I don't have a host as much as a dozen or so weapons I can screw it on.

I would go with a CZ SP01. It has a rail and can be ordered with a threaded factory barrel ready to go. Plus it will fit your hands better then the other two.

I would not recommend either. I would also recommend the CZ SP01.

Think about it. Think about the action. No barrel tilt.

What does barrel tilt have to do with it?

Uhhh long explanation.

It has to do with non-static shooting, mostly.

I thought you meant it as something to do with it as a suppressor host.

I have used my suppressors on a glock, m&p, and a sig 226. The sig and m&p are better than the glock imo. All 3 are available with factory threaded barrels as well.

Whatever works for you :)

I don't really like expressing my opinion on certain guns in public, because.. well.. obvious reasons.

If it works for you, then awesome! :thumb:

I'll check out the CZ. I have a hand full of 9mm pistols now, but they all have very loud action noises.

I agree, it's just that some are louder than others. :p

Have a SIG 226 and 228 as host for my Trident. According to some of the people on silencertalk who test all the time, the SIGs meter a little less than other common host like the Glocks and HKs.

You would be surprised how loud a hammer strike can me. A 10/22 with the bolt locked shut meters no quieter than with the bolt moving.

Oh, when people say "action", the thought of the "action" moving and unlocking is how I perceive it.

I think it is self-explanatory that most guns require a hammer/striker strike.

You still have to open the action on the TC and that makes noise also. :ponder:

Sig hands down would be my recommendation. NSW in the 90s went through a ton of suppressed 9mm pistols testing their quietness and the gun that came out of all that is the MK24 (now a Mk25 I think they changed designation) with the factory Sig threaded bbl that they use standard. Take that FWIW.

And CZ works fine from my experience too, and is a great value for money. Just order a factory threaded bbl. My buddy had problems with a aftermarket threaded bbl on his SP-01. Forget which brand.

And barrel tilt problems, well with respect, I have found to be mostly hubris.

Aftermarket barrels are hardly ever needed, unless for threading, etc.

I've never heard of anyone having problems from barrel tilt.

Oh ok. From your response earlier in thread I thought you had. And not sure what you mean by 'needed'. Of course it would be for threading, we are talking about suppressors. I must be misinterpreting something here. :skep:
