    Which I acknowledged in the first post. My comment there was if I'm spending almost 2 grand, I want to suppress every gun I own. I could buy the Sandman-S or similar cost rifle can and a cheap pistol can for the around the same cost as the OSS.

    From what I've read, the Hybrid doesn't give up much to a .30 cal can if you use the .30 cal end cap. The sacrifice is on pistol hosts the can is large. But also, I'd rather sacrifice on giving up pistol qualities vs rifle capability.

    I guess what I didn't post is that my current (only) suppressor is a .22 rimfire can. So I have rimfires covered.

    Comparison (additional two are set where they would mount)

    Top AAC 762
    Mounted AAC mini-4 on 10.5” .223
    Bottom SiCo Hybrid

    Same gun as above with mini-4 and 16” with AAC 762.

    MPX with SiCo Omega 9K mounted with 3-lug
    Hybrid placed relative to correct mounting location.

    The Omega 9K is the only suppressor I know of this size that will take supersonic 300BLK. I plan on testing it as such and it may find a permanent home on a 9” PDW.

    The Omega 9K and Hybrid were at the top of my list until talking to my buddy about the Sandman series.

    Enid's quite the drive, but I suppose well worth it if I am considering the investment.

    We should get an Eat-n-Shoot more centrally so that I can attend next time.

    That is what I was getting at. Reinforcing your friends recommendation that it may be better to dedicate to less coverage and use two cans to cover your needs.

    Although I haven't shot my Hybrid on anything yet, I believe you are correct. I have tested my AAC762 (.30 can) on my .223 against a M4-2000. At the time the M4 was the top rated .223 can and my AAC762 didn't give up anything accept the additional length and weight. Laboratory grade sound tests I read during my selection process confirmed this.
    While the AAC762 worked awesome on the .223, I desired something smaller. I was in the market for a M4-2000 when I came across the right deal on the mini-4. I'm so glad I bought it over a larger suppressor.

    I bought the Hybrid for my .375 SOCOM, but I'll likely get a .30 end cap to try it on one of my 300BLKs.

    I'm not a fan at all of shooting a rimfire round through a welded center-fire can. The rimfire leaves a nasty mess in the can.

    Yes, those are mine. I like the looks of the Sandman series. I've considered the Wolf 9SD, but the diameter is just over fitting in some of my rails. The 9K is awesome for its intended purpose. Full Auto 9 rated, 300BLK Super rated in a small package.

    I think this is what I'm leaning towards. Get a good rifle can that can work on all my rifles, then add a pistol and/or K-rifle can later.

    So I've heard. I'm glad I have a dedicated rimfire suppressor. It's a hoot to shoot, and I love letting kids try it out. I've got two hosts for it, a Ruger Mk3 22/45 and a Marlin bolt action. The Marlin is stupid quiet with subsonics.

    Which is why I like it. It's crazy short, and will run 9mm or .300blk sub/super. Which makes it a great sub-gun can. The Dead Air Wolf-9SD seems to have the same benefit, but offers the additional bonus of a "large" option as it is a modular can.

    I first spotted the Dead Air for their Sandman-K can, because of the size and price right now (low introductory price), especially since I've gone to the effort of setting up a short barrel .300blk, I wanted the can to be short too.

    My friend has me convinced that I don't want a "K" type rifle can for my first.

    Maybe not, but I recommend catering to your favorite rifle. My AAC762 is on my 9" 300BLK 95% of the time. While I've thought I really wanted the Omega 9K on it, maybe I should just leave it (the 9K) to my 9mm PCCs and get the Wolf 9SD for it. Hmmmm, I see another suppressor in my future.

    What kind of .300 blk do you have?

    Something to keep in mind on the Silencerco, the guy I purchased from tried the different end caps on a .223 and the .458 end cap wasn't any louder than the .223 end cap. Something you may want to research further, that could be a considerable savings there.
