Octane 45 vs Octane 45K Login/Join

I took advantage of the SilencerCo promotion going on right now, and when I registered, selected an Octane 45. However, I am considering giving them a call and switching it over to the 45K. I really have no idea what I am going to use it for, since I rarely shoot .45. Likely it will become dedicated to a .300 BO SBR.

Anyway, I already own an AAC Evo 9, an Omega 9K (double duty for 9mm and .300 BO) and the suppressor I purchased to get the promotion was a Chimera in .300.

With all of that said, would you have selected the Octane 45 (full size) or the Octane 45k?

My Octane 45 is dedicated to pistols from 9mm to .45. It works perfectly for it's intended purpose. If you want something for your 300 BO, I would recommend going with the Omega, as I have.

That isn't one of the "buy one get one free" options.

Personally I stick with the Octane, the extra 1.65" is making a difference of 5-7 db's quieter vs the 45k.

Good point, thank you. Its a long story, but I previously (briefly) had an Octane 45k before I had to return it due to a serial number issue. However, I do remember my FFL asking me why I went with the K configuration when the normal configuration wasn't that much longer but offered a lot more sound reduction.

Exactly my thoughts, I have an Octane and love it, and also have the Rugged Obsidian 45, and never once have shot it in the shorter K configuration, my thoughts were the same as your FFL, I bought a suppressor to be as quiet as possible, an extra inch isn't going to make a huge difference................with regards to silencers that is.

I have an Octane 45K for my pistols and love that I can clean it easily. For my 300BLK I have an ACC 762-SDN-6 and it is much more difficult to clean, but is still a great suppressor for the round. Going forward, I will only buy suppressors I can take apart and clean.

I'm having this same internal debate too. I already have a SiCo Hybrid and that's close to the Octane 45, So I'm debating the 45k.

Stormin' you clean your rifle suppressors? I just shoot mine clean.

So far I haven’t cleaned my SDN; I don’t know how well it would actually clean by just soaking it like it says to do. I do clean my serviceable suppressors since I have an ultrasonic cleaner and they come out very clean.

Rifles operate under such high pressures that rifle cans don't typically need to be opened up and cleaned. If they ever get noticeably heavier from lead build up, then it's time for a trip back to the manufacturer for a legit cleaning. I've never had a can shot so much that it was necessary. I don't know how many rounds it would take, but it's gotta be a shit ton.

The pressure does the cleaning for you and just blows the gunk out the front. Pistol suppressors need to be broken down and cleaned though.

If I shoot a lot of 300 blk subsonic through a can, I'll always run a mag or so of supers through it just to blow it out. If I have a .308 with me that day, I'll slap it on the .308 and run some rounds through it that way too.
