So, finally getting that first suppressor here soon. Eventually, i'll be looking at 3 guns to host a suppressor on. My AR pistol, a Savage 110 Tactical (in 6.5 creedmoor) and eventually my wife's Ruger PC9 carbine. Kind of limited on budget, and I would like to avoid direct thread on them if I can. To help save on the $$$ pain, right now I'm looking at two suppressors to start with. One being a dead air sandman (probably the K) for my AR pistol and the 6.5 rifle. Figure it won't make the pistol hearing safe, but will take the edge off if I ever have to let loose with it. At least it will function on both reasonably well I think. For the wife, I've been looking at a CGS Mod-9sk. And before anyone yells, yes, I know that one is a direct thread, but I just couldn't find any good 9mm cans that had a QD mount, were reasonable in cost, and were fairly light. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

I have a QD suppressor. Hind site is 20/20, but I really wish I had gone direct thread. Yes QD saves at least 2 seconds, but I dont bounce it around more than a few times a year, and have to buy expensive mounts. Saving 5 minutes twisting time over the last 5 years has cost me about 500 bucks by the time you figure mounts, and extra cost of the can. My time is valuable, but not 100 dollars a minute valuable.

I'm in the same boat as Alan. When I got my first one, I didn't know any better. I picked a manufacturer and went with it. Now I've got just as much money wrapped up in muzzle devices as I do suppressors. Don't let a direct thread scare you away. Your 6.5 won't be quite hearing safe, but it is much more enjoyable to shoot. Be careful, they're like potato chips, it's hard to stop at just one.

Take a look at the Silencerco Omega 36M. It can handle all 3 of your hosts and in QD with ASR. If you want a better QD system, you can swap it for Griffin Plan A. The 36M is modular in length so you can keep it short for HD and make it long for range time.

Dead Air Nomad (with Keymo if you want QD)

The only plus I see for you with QD would be moving between different thread pitches (assuming your AR pistol is 5.56), otherwise would run it direct thread and you could always change it out later.

The Nomad is a great can, but the benefit of the Nomad is that you can ditch Keymo for shorter, lighter, and cheaper options. If you are going to use Keymo, you might as well get the Sandman S and get the added durability with the weight.

I vote for the QD. I'm constantly bouncing mine around on 8 different rifles. It also helped me avoid using thread adapters. I can't speak for the pc9, but your pistol is 1/2-28 and the creed is 5/8-24 threads.

Also if using a QD mount you’ll either have a flash hider or muzzle brake on whatever guns you’ll be mounting it on. If that sort of thing matters to you. I like having a flash hider if I’m not using a suppressor.

I have about a few suppressors and have found the Hybrid to be a good all around option. How far are you from Jeffersonville? If you want I can let you try out the 8-10 options I have that will work on your platforms.

short barrel AR is LOUD, the Sandman K is very LOUD.

My suggestion is:

Buy 308 can to cover your rifle calibers.

Rugged Obsidian 45 to cover your pistols calibers.
