SilencerCo Octane 9 2.0

Anyone have any experience with this or the old one? It was described as the Honda Civic of suppressors. Will be using it with the Griffin Universal Piston. Just placed the order today, cant wait!

It's just an Octane 9 with a slightly fancier tube. Nothing wrong with that, the Octane 9 is a solid can. I've got one (and a 45K).

Honestly wasnt sure what made it a 2.0 lol.

Do you notice a difference between the 9 and 45 on the same gun?

Honda civic because it's widespread, affordable and efficient? Or Honda civic with a loud fart can exhaust system that's obnoxious?

It is 100% a cosmetic update.

Haven't even shot the 45K yet. Pistol cans aren't really a priority for me, and most of my shooting can't be done suppressed (competition).

I plan to use it in competition. I will make a holster work.

They are not legal outside of open, and good luck with a shot timer picking it up. There's a reason you don't see them in matches.

Where we run they are. The shot timer though, yeah thats true. It doesnt always pick up my 556k.

Ill try it, see what happens. Maybe not this month, Ill miss multigun, but next month. Unless I run a stee match.

No, they're definitely not legal in either multi-gun (mid-Atlantic ruleset) or SC pistols outside of open. The fact that the ROs don't call people out on this isn't the same as them being legal. I think they're OK on PCCs, though.

This is just local stuff. Nothing ranked. Local range runs matches. People come from all over for them but theres no prize, at least in the matches I run.
Ive been running a can on my rifle the last month. Lots of people run suppressors. Not really on pistols because its probably cumbersome. Its just for fun though so I dont mind it slowing me down.
