    Default Longest & safest suppressor length for an MP5K?

    Drawing up a form 1 suppressor build here, what's the longest safest length for a suppressor for a MP5K?

    Given the shorter barrel and 9mm drop distance.

    I see a lot of MP5's with 8 inch suppressors but most K's I see runned with 6 inch suppressors.

    Going with a 0.030" added tolerance on the radius.

    I run a AAC Tirant-9 on mine, with a triad mount. No issues.

    Similar, I have a .45 Ti-rant as well as a KAC threaded one, both are great.

    "Drop distance" as it relates to a possible consideration in a theoretical suppressor design of 6 vs 8 inches? As stated already, there are many proven designs at 8 inches not including the mount. More volume the better IMHO.

    i don’t think bullet drop is the concern, instead it’s bullet stability and consistency.

    I run a SiCo Omega 9k on mine, 4.7" can with the low profile 3 lug mount. It is my absolute favorite can and my Mp5k clone has had zero issues with it.
    I doubt you'd have any issues at that length. Are you doing a tube and mono stack or welding up your own?
