Been doing some reading but still have the whole head is spinning thing. I am leaning towards a YHM R9 to start out with to see if I really want to pursue this rabbit. It is a sealed unit for 9mm and can be used on with barrel restrictions.

BARREL LENGTH RESTRICTIONS:
  • 7.62x51 / .308 Winchester: 16" minimum barrel length
  • 350 Legend: 16" minimum barrel length
  • 5.56 NATO: 16" minimum barrel length
  • 300 Blackout: 8" minimum barrel length
But look's like it might be a decent starting point.

So what would you guys think about this particular suppressor?

Not too bad. Good price. Can’t disassemble to clean it. And only has direct thread so you’ll have to buy any QD mounts, thread adapters for other pitches, and the booster assembly/Nielson device to run it on a tilt barrel handgun. And I bet it’s still pretty loud on a centerfire rifle being almost a K length can. I guess that’ll be the best way to clean it out, run a few hot 308s through it to blow it all out ha.

So what would be needed to run on a Dagger? Not sure what you mean by tilt barrel handgun?

I think I would rather use the direct thread to start with.

As stated above need a couple separate cans. I have a old aac 7.62 and have beat on it for years..... but totally agree only use direct thread.... check out rugged obsidian, i have their obsidian 45 and love it...their customer service is awesome.... had a baffle strike totally my fault and they had it rebaffled and sent back in 3-4 days. it stays mainly on my 450 bushmaster bolt gun....

You’ll need the booster assembly. Allows the can to move back and forth to allow the barrel to tilt when slide goes back. Fixed barrel would be like a p22 or beretta m9.

LOL, I can handle the wait. Its the dollars that kill me. Its like do I get a suppressor or another really nice firearm?
Trust us. The waiting is worse. Especially when fork over the money up front and then have to wait a year until can actually enjoy what you spent all the money on. It’s worth it though. And like said above. Once start shooting suppressed That’s all you’ll want to do here on out.

The r9 would be ok for everything you listed but I would not recommend it for someones first suppressor. While the advice I’m going to give might not even fit your needs but I wish I could have told this to a younger me. Some of it I got right the first time and some I missed the mark.
if I had it to do over again I would have gotten a long high preforming titanium 30 cal suppressor with hub compatible mounting first. I ended up getting a good preforming 30 cal suppressor but it is direct thread and HEAVY. I can not say this enough watch the weights a heavy can is not as fun. Current best picks in this category are dead air nomad L Ti, ddc enticer, csg Hyperion, and thunder beast Magnus. The last two don’t have hub compatibly but are very quiet.

the second can or even the first should be a 22 can. I lucked up and got one of the best made cans element 2 but the old AAC is gone. The top 22 cans now are mask, takedown, oculus, switch back, and NYX. Don’t get an aluminum can!

my third can should have been a tough midsize 30cal steel can. There are a lot of good cans that fit in this category so I will just name a few.
Nomad 30, omega 300, vox, anthem k steel, and explorer. Unless you have a machine gun any of these do good on short barrels and ar15s. Don’t get the sandman. It’s a popular choice in this category but it’s heavy and not quite. There is better technology out there.

this is where I would put a do all can mainly for pistol or larger projectiles. I got a 46hybrid and I’m happy with it because I know what to expect from it. I use it on my 45-70 and 450 bushmaster. It has even spent some time on a 5.56 pistol. Yes you can put it on a pistol but I never will because it’s big and heavy.

then I would get the r9 but I would rather have the Fly9 but it’s expensive.

just as a side note glock and glock clones (dagger) don’t make the best suppressor hosts.

the suppressors I have in order I got them and what I think I did right and wrong.
AAC Cyclone- not the best choice it’s heavy and direct thread.
AAC Element 2. - best purchase
Sico 46 Hybrid- good choice for 45cal rifle
Dead air Ti - I should have gotten the Ti L
Dead air 30 - good purchase will use it on all of my ARs 5.56-7.62x39 rifles and pistols

if you really want to get research paralysis check out pew science. He is doing real sound testing you can trust.

they are discontinuing the T2 and bringing out the T3. There are a lot of sales right now so if you want a t2 now is the time.
Ah okay didn’t know that. I’ve got my eye on one, supposed to be having a big cyber Monday sale so I’m waiting to see what that entails before I proceed.

Good advice here, thanks. I love my hyperion on 300wm and looking to tame my Whelen, thoughts?
