    Get a storm lake conversion barrel for you G23 to 9mm. Then get a YHM Cobra M2 9mm can and shoot it on 9mm and 22LR.

    40 cans kinda suck. I decided to go with a Trident 9 first and would do it again in a heartbeat. I love suppressed subsonic 9mm. It isn't Hollywood quiet like .22 can be, but it is a much funner quiet to make IMO.

    Bootlegn,

    We'd need a little insight into what end result you're looking for IOT make the best recommendation. What do you want out of your suppressed platform(s)?

    Do you want a gun that is "James Bond/Hollywood" quiet (one that will make you laugh out loud every time that you shoot it, cuz it's CRAZY, STUPID QUIET!)? If that's what you're looking for then a suppressed deuce-deuce or a 9mm with subs are your best bet (like many have already suggested).

    Maybe you intend to use your .40 or 5.56 for home defense and you want to set it up as a better weapon for that task?

    Maybe the land you go to shoot at has a farmer next door that gets pissed because your shooting is upsetting his cows and you're looking to take the edge off of the report on your 5.56?

    I vote 556! I sent in paperwork for my first can in January. The check is already cleared my bank, now it's in the hands of the examiner. I picked up an AAC M4 1K from MMM. Bryon has a very efficient operation and you can't beat the deals he gives us! Other markets are definately not so lucky... Thanks for that! :thumb:

    All the Way!

    I would like to find one for my Walther P22. I have seen pics of them, but I have never had a chance to hear it in action.

    The P22 is VERY easy to suppress - you can make it STUPID quiet!!

    I have never had one. Someone told me that if you get one you need to leave it in an estate or something so that you can leave it to your kids. I know you have to pay some kind of tax or something. How much would it cost to put a can on a P22 after you bought it and all the paperwork that comes with it?

    I agree with GTG and I'm probably gonna stir things up with my suggestion, but I know what I have and I LOVE my SWR Trident. Purchase a 1/2x28 threaded 9mm conversion bbl for your Glock and a Trident-9 (A surrealistically quiet wet/dry suppressor that can be taken apart to clean). I have also used it on my P22 and Sig Mosquito and can honestly say that they're as close to "Hollywood quiet" as it gets. No louder than my old Crossman 760 BB gun. I know there have been many threads about using a 9mm can on a .22, but the SWR can be cleaned and this will allow you to get the most out of your $200 stamp. I also use it on a FA M11/nine and a 9mm upper for my AR-15. Best money I've spent.

    Hope this helps!

    I couldn't decide either so i just ordered them both, SWR Spectre for 22lr and AAC SPR/M4 for the .223. Probably be ordering another here in April if Gemtech offers there special again.
