    I'm kinda on the fence about buying a suppressor. If I buy one, it's gunna be a 9mm. I have a couple questions.

    1. Will a 9mm suppressor work on a .380? I'm guessing yes, since a .380 is essentially a short 9mm...but want to make sure. I ask because I want to get a Walther.

    2. What is the most economic, compact, and quite can put there? I'm sure there is no prefect one, but what is the best of all three worlds?

    If it matters, I'm planning on using it on my G19, P228, 92FS, and a Walther PPK.

    1. Yes - and Tornado Tech can thread it for you.

    "Walther PK380 - Extend and thread, includes thread protector.(threaded 1/2 -28 or 13.5mmx1LH) $200"

    2. Lots of options, maybe look over the Silencer Talk forum. For a small .380 I'd look at the Thompson Machine Poseidon or Degroat Nano.

    A favorite all-around 9mm suppressor that also works on LOTS of other calibers is the Liberty Mystic, but it may be cumbersome on the end of a .380.

    http://libertycans.net/mystic.html Dan Dee sales here in Oregon sells the Mystic.

    Good luck.

    In general, suppressors will work on lesser cartridges. I am shopping for a .308 with the intention to also use it on .223 and 22LR.

    This is my eventual goal as well, but I also want to run 7.62 x 39 through it... Should be fine.

    I am currently waiting on stamp approval from ATF on a Silencerco Osprey 9. They sell a piston with will work on the glock,sig and the brett. Just makes sure you get the 0.5x28 XL piston.
