There are several factors to consider when purchasing a silencer for your firearm. It is important to realize that silencers will not reduce all noises while shooting but it can greatly reduce the need for hearing protection while shooting. Some popular calibers to silence are 22LR, 9mm, 45ACP and 300Blackout since these are easily available in subsonic loads. Silencers/Suppressors also help with shooting accuracy because it eliminates the destabilizing effect that the muzzle blast creates as the projectile leaves the barrel.
1. No suppressor and supersonic ammo
2. Suppressor and supersonic ammo
3. Suppressor and subsonic ammo
It is sometimes possible to shoot both supersonic and subsonic ammo from the same weapon depending on make and caliber. Shooting subsonic ammo in weapons designed for supersonic loads could lead to weapons not cycling properly. Please research the silencer that would best fit your needs.
