Just got an email on this.

Looks super configurable.
I'm personally not too impressed by the cosmetics of it - but the concept isn't bad.





This is where my signature goes.

Meh. Dead Air already did something similar as the Odessa 9. I don’t think it’s a huge seller. A lot of people who have conventional 2 configuration cans usually usually leave it in one configuration 90% of the time. It seems less even likely they’ll mess around with 4 or 5 configurations.

It’s interesting, but there’s probably a good reason this never really caught on.

Take a look at the Q Erector, which is more similar than the Odessa. Q is planning a 9mm version as well, which is likely to be very close to Sig's design.

I quite like the Erector I have, and the configurable setup is more than just "K or L" setup. You're able to remove fouled baffles, or damaged ones since they're using a fairly fragile material to achieve the insane light weight, and can quickly adapt the can to go from "max quiet" on a semi-auto pistol shooting supers to try and peel off as much sound as possible, to "max compact" on a bolt-action rifle shooting subs that only needs a chamber or two to truly deaden it - or anywhere in between to tune back pressure and sound performance as needed per load and application.

Granted, I keep it in a 2-baffle stack on my bolt gun with subs most often, but I leave those two baffles by themselves and stack the other 8 on it to put on a pistol when needed, and go with 4 on the rifle with a stronger load.
