Doin' what I can
with what I got

Mornin', fellas!

I helped infect a friend with the SIG MPX bug...he now has more of them than I do, and is planning to make one a suppressor host. I figured why google in the dark when I've seen plenty of people showing off their rigs here.

So...who's made their MPX quieter? And how?

-Did you go with the 8" upper? 4.5" upper? SIG's "suppressor ready" build with the 4.5" barrel and faux can under the 8" hand guard? Or something totally else?

-Which cans have been effective for you?
-How is the gas blowback?
-Can you mitigate overgassing with a charging handle?
-I've heard about In Lead We Trust barrels. Good/Bad/Ugly?
-What fits/doesn't fit under the handguard?
-How did you solve mounting solution challenges?

Asking for a friend...but when I stop moving every damn year there will be NFA in my future, so...thanks from the both of us! Wink

PS: Just because he frequently sends me goodies to drool over...don't forget the pics! Big Grin

I have a gen1 MPX - bought one of the earliest models (back when they came with a hard plastic case).
It came with an 8" barrel - I had it chopped down to 5" and put a SiCo Omega9k on it.
Works like champ and fits nice and happy under the handguard - pokes out about an inch or so.





This is where my signature goes.

I don’t have any pics yet, but waiting on a Rugged Obsidian 45 can stamp, was submitted right when the government shutdown was starting, so I probably still have a few months to wait. Bought the can to go on an MPX-PSB with the 8 inch barrel. The Obsidian is convertible to a short configuration which is how I am planning to run it. I have a 13” hand guard, so it should cover all but the last inch or two of the can. I have it topped with a Sig Romeo3 reflex sight on the riser. Oh, and it has a Franklin binary trigger.

I bought the 4” In Lead We Trust barrel when it was first offered, and it came 1/2x28. I then got the Lancer carbon fiber 4” hand guard. I only have a SiCo Osprey 45. It wont fit under the handguard so i use a small spacer washer threaded onto the barrel and the extended SiCo 1/2x28L piston to allow it to thread on tightly. It works well. Its pretty quiet. Not much by way of gas to the face ive noticed. My wife enjoys the MPX so much shes claimed it as her own - first gun ive owned that she’s liked that much so I welcomed it.

Here's my wife's MPX with my two Daniel Defense rifles for a suppressed family photo as the most recent photo of the MPX:


Here's the photo of my buddy's MPX back when he had an FFL/SOT shop - full auto sear, Omega 9k (I think?), SBR'd MPX:

I recognize that wall (I'm pretty sure)! Didn't realize MTR closed, bought my first suppressors from there when I moved to Utah.

Yeah I'd be curious to know what happened. His shop was awesome (very nice differentiator to have everything mounted up to a gun as opposed to the usual glass case full of metal tubes that all look alike) and he wasa good guy to chat with and was very enthusiastic about what he did. I wonder if the the significant increase in Silencershop dealers in the area over the last couple of years pulled business in other directions, especially for people like me in Salt Lake county that didn't really have many closer options until recently.

I have the YHM Resonator and the Turbo. They are my go-to's for rifle suppressors on my AR's, MCX-SBR and Beretta ARX-100-SBR. Using a YHM can on a MCX requires the QD mount and the tapered-barrel bushing, which no one ever seems to have in stock, but my MCX SBR came with one. Unlike my Beretta ARX-100 SBR, which is a "gassy" gun which also (due to the twin ejection openings) shoots a blast of gas into my face, the MCX is very pleasant to fire suppressed. I haven't bothered with the suppressed setting, it runs fine using either can in the normal setting. I'm trying to figure out how to post photos in this thread. It is a bit confusing.

That only took ten minutes to figure out. Not bad for me!

You can see the same can on the Beretta, which is not (IMO) a good host for a suppressor:

I have a Gen1 MPX that started off 8". It was threaded from the factory LH. At first I tried a direct thread can, but the mount to can interface was RH threads, and mount to barrel was LH, it was impossible to fully tighten. I sent it off to be cut to 6" and threaded 1/2x28 RH. I then installed a 3 lug mount. Three lugs are the way to go. My recommendation is to keep your barrel factory, and get an ILWT with integrated 3 Lug.

I use both a Gemtech Multimount and a Griffen Revo9, the latter usually in the short K config. Both fit under the handguards nicely. The gun still felt a bit heavy for a PCC, so I swapped out a 8" Lancer carbon fiber handguard. That really helped with balance, she feels like a dream, now.

A Radian Raptor MPX charging handle helps with gas, but there is still some gas in the face. It mostly depends on ammo though, some is much worse than others. I've been considering a new gas plug from ILWT, to try and cut it down further.

Last upgrade was a Larue trigger. Larue claims that it will hold up to an MPX, we will see, but that thing is every bit as good as a Geissele.

I have also found the 3 lug is the best way to go, for me. No problems with carbon lock. Fast, reliable connection. No threads.
