Beginning the search for a 45 suppressor Login/Join

I've done some reading and believe ive narrowed it down to 3 choices. The Rugged Obsidian, CGS Nautilas and the Dead Air Ghost are on my list. This will primarily stay on a 9mm pcc via tri-lug but will see use on both 9 and 45 pistols with both left and right thread patterns.

If you have experience with any or all of these your input would be appreciated.

The only one that I have experience with is the Obsidian 45. I used it primarily on 9mm PCCs using tri-lug until I replaced it with a Wolfman. Now it lives on my LWRC SMG-45.

My lgs does have a wolfman in stock, do you feel it performs better on the pcc vs the Obsidian?

Several months ago my thought process was put a wolfman on the ghm9 and leave it be. Then do something different for the pistols, I'm just not sure I want to spend the money on 2 pistol caliber suppressors.

No actual experience with it yet but after a lot of research (and not a few positive recommendations from SF folks) I just last month started the Long Wait on an Obsidian 45. I ordered an extra piston for it so I can use it on my 9's as well.

The Wolfman is a larger diameter can optimized for PCCs and I do feel that it performs better for that use. However, it’s only a 9mm can, so if you ever intend to suppress .40/10mm/45, it’s not going to work out. My choice in originally buying the Obsidian 45 was for the possibility of using it on bigger calibers, which later on turned out to be the right choice for me. Otherwise, I would have just bought an Obsidian 9 at the time (Wolfman didn’t exist when I bought the Obsidian).

On the flip side, Wolfman is a bit too large and heavy for using on regular pistols. It’s really optimized for PCC. If you just want one can for use on both pistol and PCC, I think the Obsidian is a better choice.
