    Ok.....

    I think I have narrowed it down.

    I’m getting either a dead air M or an obsidian for my Glock 21 and 17

    Which one do y’all like better-ease of cleaning, quality, etc?

    Maybe 300 blkout subsonic eventually....

    Which way should I go?

    I have a rugged Obsidian and love it.
    I use it on my Glock 21 and 19 as well as on my JR Carbine.
    I have never tried a dead air so I cannot comment on that.
    The Obsidian is easy to take apart and clean.
    Here is a video of it on my JR Carbine 9mm 147 grain from Freedom Munitions.
    I also have a Rugged Surge 762 in jail.

    If you ever get up around Newnan/Franklin I would be more than happy to let you try it out.

    Both are made by two of the best companies in the business, so you can't go wrong with either.

    The Ghost is a little lighter with the aluminum baffles in the module, but the Obsidian has all stainless baffles. I'd say ease of cleaning goes to the Obsidian. The Obsidian can also share pistons/mounts with Silencerco, which can be a huge benefit if you plan on getting a Silencerco can in the future. But the Ghost can use a wipe, legally, if that's something that you might be into.

    ^ like he said, you can't go wrong with either or.

    Obsidian 45 is considered to be the best performing suppressor regarding decibel reduction while the ghost-m has a more pleasing deep tone to the shooter's ear. Also, be advised that both are rated only full auto for 300blk out SUBSONIC according to the respective manufactures' spec.

    I currently have a ghost-m in jail and will be picking up an obsidian 9 in the near future.

    My Ghost M is super easy to take apart and clean. And sounds so good on my Evo.

    Do y’all use a dedicated suppressor for 22?

    Or would one of these work well for it also?
