you can run alot through a .45 can, basically as long as the round fits through the baffles, just makes sure it can handle the pressure of whatever round you are running

i.e. you can run supersonic 300 blk through an evo 45 but it still is a high pressure rifle round and is not good for the suppressor and could shorten the life of the baffles, i'm not sure if the subsonic would be bad for it or not, i'd think it would be ok but i'm no expert

eta i'd love to suppress a .22, the .45 is pretty quiet though suppressed

or, if you have a rifle that shoots handgun loads and vice versa, then you can buy one can as long as the threading matches up. Say, a 5.7 upper or P90 and the 5.7 pistol (i think FN makes that) or if you have a .22 long upper for your M4 and a .22 long pistol

Generally a caliber dedicated suppressor works fine with any type of weapon for that caliber, I.e. my m4-2000 works on a pistol ar15 just as well as a 20 inch ar15, the same goes for .22s and lots of others

Ok so caliber to caliber works, but what about the higher cal to a lower cal in the same can?

ie. 45 ACP suppressor with a 9mm pistol?
(With the proper mounting adaptors)

you should still be good, if you are running a dedicated can vrs a non dedicated it should generally be within 3 decibels

I took a Ruger 22/45 Bull Barrel, cut it down, profiled it to accept the OPSINC MBS & Collar then installed a Tjijicon RMR where the rear sight was. This way I can use my long gun suppressor on it. At the end of the day there's not much difference between 5.56 and .22. Performance wise, super quiet and I can center punch a playing card repeatedly @ 25m.

That's sounds like a great idea. I plan on selling my TACSOL upper for a suppressed one but this might be a great way to do it too. Mind posting a few pics?

I have a TBAC .22 can with 4 hosts and an SWR Octane 9 for my M&P and two MP5 clones. Really happy with both of them, I only have two pistols not in .22 or 9mm and those are a 1911 for winter conceal carry and a Glock 29 for hiking/camping. Neither would be practical with a can attached. I don't foresee myself getting many, if any, other handguns in anything but .22 or 9mm.

Edit: Sorry for the necropost. This was only halfway down the first page and I didn't even think to look at the post dates. Used to forums with higher traffic I guess.
