Hey guys, my first suppressor should be out of jail soon based on the wait times others have posted here. I still don't have a pistol host yet. Instead of doing a bunch of research, I was hoping to find something suppressor ready (threaded barrel, taller sights) out of the box.
Right now I am leaning towards a Glock 19 TB, but was curious what others recommend.
I’ve read many good reports of the CZ Suppressor Ready models. Those or a USP would both be good choices.
All that said having shot one gun with suppressor heights sights I won’t be installing any on my pistols. I’ve made it this far shooting through the can. The tall sights are more of an annoyance (to me) than any real help.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

As far as sights, meh. My 226 Elite Dark has the factory raised sights (no issues on mine), even with an Osprey 9 the raised sights barely clear the can. If I were to put my Octane 9 or 45 on it I doubt the sights would clear. In short, don’t let the sights be a deciding factor.

I have threaded barrels for my G19, G17, and P228. No issues with any of those with my Octane 45. For the glocks, I just bought Silencerco threaded barrels. I too have just learned to just aim through the can so no need for taller sights.

For 9mm, I've shot the G19, P226, P229, 90-TWO, PPQ-Navy, and USPc all suppressed. I think the Beretta and PPQ were probably my favorite. i think they all can come with factory threaded barrel models except the USP compact.

I've seen the worst performance overall with Glocks. Not that they don't run, but the ejection is erratic and weak. I've seen some to frequently not return all the way to battery depending on the ammunition, suppressor, and barrel used.
I have seen total reliability from P320 and P226 hosts, however, including solid ejection.
