people have used an Osprey 45 can on a 5.7? I was joking, as I didn't think it could handle the pressure

Of course it can. between the volume/bore size, it can handle tons of sub calibers. Pressure isnt the only thing a suppressor needs to worry about, volume is the other. The 5.7x28 doesn't have a lot of volume. Thats why quite a few .22 suppressors can handle it. The Osprey .45 is also rated for 10mm.

I will have a Spectre II whenever the ATF gets around to approving the tax stamp (they say March-ish). I got it for my Ruger 10/22 & S&W M&P22 but it's multi-caliber so I'll also track down a threaded barrel for the FsN when I get the suppressor and we'll see how that one works.

It had the best average sound reduction while maintaining the best accuracy of these cans that were tested:

EDIT: Jay - I just noticed that as per your website there's a 10-12 week lead time on the threaded barrels - I don't know if you can even answer this, but with all the panic buying going on, is this still a reasonable estimate for ETA?

Spectre 2 is an awesome can. It pretty much lives on my S&W 15-22.

No damn clue.

My Sparrow takes the bite out of the pistol, but not hearing safe (imo). My Mystic, although big, cycles fine and is hearing safe. Have not tried my Osprey yet.

I have the AAC Ti Rant 45 and its really quiet and when you shoot it wet its scary quiet, I thought it would be front heavy but with a full mag it evens out and the tall Heine tactical night sights aiming isn't a problem. I've heard cap guns that are twice as loud. I love it and use it on my HK 45c and vector super v cqb. Image

I have a Thunderbeast 22-L1. I've only used SS195LF so far. The suppression was fantastic. Most of the noise I heard was coming from round hitting the target. Only firing this from my FiveseveN pistol though I felt unacceptable amounts of blowback. I'd give this a 3 for the sound but a 0 for the blowback. I'm considering a 9mm suppressor or perhaps larger.

Cool thank you for the feed back since it's pretty much impossible for one person to have every can out there just for testing.

Has anyone tried an AAC Element 2 on a FSN pistol?

Hey guys whats the best can for the ps90 SBR for quick detach mount?

For quick detach stuff, Gemtech G5 is pretty good. They also sell the flash hider mate for the PS90

FINALLY got my new suppressor, an Elite Iron Echo for the 5.7. (Which they've apparently discontinued?)
Using subsonic ammo (3.4gr HS-6, 55gr FMJ), it is quieter than my Gemtech. GT was about like a loud paintball gun but still kinda wanted hearing protection. Last night I fired 20rd through the Echo & I don't think it's loud enough to worry about.
I did not try any factory ammo but with supersonic rounds one will likely need to use ear plugs anyway.
Also, the diameter of the suppressor is smaller than I realized. Looking down the sights, I don't notice the suppressor at all; the slide completely obscures it.

It is heavy when compared to the GT & even when compared to the FsN itself.
BATFE wait time: 7 months.

Based on yer "7 month" info, GONRA's expecting Gemtech around May.
Interested in your handload! What brass & primer did you use?

Intention was to use the ORIGINAL EA brass - "drastically reduced case capacity"
but am accumlating data needed to blast away when it arrries.
THANX!

GONRA’s first shootin’ with suppressor.
Following setup was a HUGE SUCCESS.
5.7x28mm FN Five-seveN® pistol 20 rd. mag, Viridian Universal Mount Green Laser.
Sights / laser were setup / adjusted with FN’s original barrel.
Try to beat this setup fellas.....

Today used (first time) EA 20 lb. recoil spring and threaded FiveSeveN EFK Fire Dragon barrel
GEMTECH SFN-57 suppressor with 10x1mm metric RH threads.

Shot 5 rounds new factory FNB 14 ammo. Had other shooters shoot 2 more 5 rd. strings
so I could try to figger out where fired cases went and listen to “supersonic suppressed noise”.
STRONG EJECTION, FLAT PRIMERS, MUCH QUIETER.
Found 8 fired cases (looked Just Fine) – remainder are in somewhere in “weed heaven”
after bouncing off sheet metal corrugated roof.

This rough “3 (experienced) shooters 25 yard test” had nice overlapping groups. Maybe 8 inches.
We noted how easy it is (obvious sights, nice trigger pull, no real recoil) to blast away with this setup.

Really pleased, fun to shoot, etc.
Plan on loading up subsonic ammo next, after cleaning up a couple other Pointless Retired Man gun projects.
