Gunbroker is likely to be your best bet.

According to KAC:

Literally all of our suppressor production capabilities are booked until 2022, and even then we might have to roll some into 2023. Tons and tons of orders, material shortages, extended lead times from our vendors, and workforce issues have completely thrown a wrench into our stuff. We even ceased taking new orders for some of the rifles, all cans, and even turned off accepting new dealers. We're that booked up.

So, unless an order had already been placed and was awaiting cue, it likely won’t be produced again for a couple years.

I’m interested in getting one new.
Would appreciate any direction on where to get one.
I've had some luck in the past posting here on Wanted to Buy Firearms (since ATF considers cans firearms in my books) and also Wanted to Buy HK accessories. Bump it every two weeks or so.

I think they will if you have them make 50 or more of them (see group buys from time to time), I can tell ya I have one for mine and was really surprised how good it works for its age I wish I could say the same. And it looks damn cool! :)

I set up a "notify me" with Only The Best Firearms and a month later, I got the email. This may be your best option, there or somewhere else.

If that's the case, maybe @straightgrain or some one else could start a group buy feeler to see if we have enough here? I know I would be down for one - even if it took a while at least I'd know it was in queue and wouldn't be overpaying a fortune for one.

They are still made, so unlike the MP5 cans there is no need for a special run/group buy. The problem as stated is the production capacity does not currently exist for new orders (thats from KAC, hard no.) Kac is outfitting the USMC with cans among other things and has suspended civi orders.

Your best bet is to get in line with one of the usual suspects who may have already placed a pre-existing order for them. KAC is filling orders that were placed before the suspension but it takes time.

I went with them for my B&T TP9 and couple month later they got one and it was like below MSRP, good folks. Now its in ATF jail.

Have tried several times with cash in hand. They have always wound up declining. Sometimes even after saying maybe.

I hope they are declining because they have prioritized a run of MP5SD cans. Very wishful thinking.

KAC has a long history of doing this instead of ramping up production.
Not sure what your point is? "Ramping up" production involves a lot more than just snapping your fingers, adding more manufacturing capability costs millions of dollars. Once the contracts cool off (if you read the paper... we just ended a 20 year war) companies can be left high and dry.

There is literally no other company willing to do runs of suppressors from the 90's because a few niche collectors want them...
Compared to HK, KAC literally bends over backwards to the collector crowd. Imagine HK releasing a full vintage line like KAC did a few years back with their "Vault."

ramp up production on a old ass plug welded can that can bested by cheapest of cans today and only bought by a margin of gun buyers..

Why would they?

They have more contracts to fill on other mil items that will make them a a hundredfold on the profit.
