    Hey all, so I changed my min and decided to go with a 19c over a 21sf as a deployment gift to myself. I found LWD Barrels for the 19c but couldn't find one that was threaded to run a suppressor. Do they make a ported drop in barrel that is also threaded? Or would I have to buy a threaded barrel to drop in that's not ported? Which will them defeat the purpose of buying a 19c. Any input is appreciated! Thanks.

    I'm going to buy a threded barrel anyway. To alleviate having to buy another gun. I'm just curious if it will work or even make sense for that matter

    If it was mine, I would buy a threaded barrel for suppressor work, and leave the ported barrel on the rest of the time. You probably know that the suppressor provides an increased amount of back pressure in the barrel which if it was ported would probably provide you with a spectacular flash. This flash and accompanying sound would also reduce the the amount of suppression significantly.

    I have a bunch of 9mm cans and an assortment of Glocks. Yes, a ported barrel plus a supressor makes a very big flash :)

    I like the 19C a lot, too.

    I prefer the TiRant. The suppression is very dependent on the ammo. 147g 9mm is subsonic and pretty quiet. 115g 9mm is supersonic and will produce a crack. A lot of people on here say to buy a .45 suppressor because you can use it on a .40 or a 9mm. I was not aware of that and purchased a 9mm. Depending on which one you choose you will probably need some suppressor sights which are high enough to see over it. Others aim with the existing sights and imagine where the point of aim is. It works but a clear sight picture is better.

    I sell a lot of cans. My favorite pistol can is the SilencerCo Osprey in .45 because, well, they go on everything. Bushings are available for various thread patterns so it can be used on (as IXLR8) said, other calibers. I didn't notice any measured difference on a 9mm v. .45 ACP through the .45 can than with a dedicated caliber can, and yes, all of the cans are very load dependent as far as "loudness."

    I'll put it on a short full auto KRISS once the little subgun gets here and see what that does.

    My other favorite pistol caliber can is the YHM QD because they are cheap and work as well as the expensive cans. I tend to leave mine on my 10" full auto Uzi though.

    I haven't measured the ported barrel/can combo for decibel level, but it seemed the same to the ear and the flash was impressive.
