    Octane 45 or Osprey 45?

    Looking at these two suppressors having a hard time choosing between them.

    Anyone personal experience would greatly be appreciated.

    Thanks

    No personal experience but you can't go wrong with either. Silencerco is coming out with a new suppressor that is supposed to be good from .22-.308.

    The octane is full auto rated. You can swap end caps on the 45 with a 9mm to get it a little quieter. I've thought the octane was more of a SMG can. It's also user serviceable.

    Osprey is sightly quieter, I think and on the right host it looks awesome. If your planning on using on a long gun it may not fit if you want to tuck it or it'll look a little funky.

    If it's solely for pistols, I'd go with the osprey. If you think you might put it on a carbine, I'd go with the octane.

    Just my opinions.

    No knock at you Merlin, just a personal observation on the whole "multi cal" suppressor push. All silences are Mult-cal, as long as the bullet fits through the hole and the can is rated for the appropriate pressure generated by the round being fired. All 30 cal cans will work with rounds 30 cal and below, etc etc. The "multi cal" push over the last year just seems to be the latest marketing term. They've been pushing the "one can for all calibers" thing trying to get the NFA newbs interested by convincing them they're only going to need one.... yeah right. I only need one AR lower to swap out all my AR uppers on. That doesn't work out. I've got lowers for most of my uppers. A 30 cal can on a 22 is WAAYY overkill and you probably can't take it apart to clean it. If you want to shoot 22lr, get a 22 can. Anyway... rant over.

    No worries. That's what I do with the ones I have by using them on lower calibers. Like SBRs, suppressors are addicting and you tend to want more.
    The one thing I saw about the new multi from Silencerco is the weight versus the rating which makes it appealing. Haven't seen the price yet but that is going to probably be a deal breaker, at least for me.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I was leaning towards the osprey to begin with.

    I'm on board with the marketing "multi can" thing. Ultimately, cans can sound different different depending on the caliber using (hard to explain, but tone is the easiest explanation). I have nothing for a pistol, and the .45 seems like a natural choice due to velocity. I do however like the idea of being able to use a .45 can on a 9mm.

    For rimfire, I'd only get something that I could take apart and clean.

    I have both. I prefer the Osprey. I've shot the osprey and octane in 9mm and 45 full auto. I'm like Merlin. I bought the 45 version of both and change out the pistons ( what SilencerCo calls its QD stuff ).

    Osprey--quieter, you don't have to mess with taller sights and cool factor. It's good to see that someone finally caught up with Maxim (1907) and finally made a non-concentric "Silencer".

    CS at Silencerco from what I have seen in comments have been better than most other manufacturers, including Gemtech.
    SLCXCR and mjorin like this.
