Does KA still make the MK23 suppressor and if so how often, or rarely, are they available for purchase and where has anyone found one lately? Thanks for any information you might have.

They're still cranking them out, Silencer Shop gets them when available, but they sell out quick. They pop up here ever once in a while as well as gunbroker. Just have to keep your eyes peeled.

I just checked with my go-to store for hard to find stuff. They usually have at least one KAC Mark 23 suppressor in stock. They are out of stock now though. I remember when I bought my Mark 23. Back then KAC was fulfilling govt contracts for the war on terror so equipment for civilian purchase was very little. I had to wait almost ten years to get the OHG can. Finally happened and all I can say is, you want one. Keep your eyes peeled and feelers out. One will turn up with your name on it. That is how I found my KAC CT suppressor. Among other places, I ran a search on gunbroker with email notification. Over a year later I got pinged and hit the auction. I contacted the seller with a question and we did a deal when the auction closed. I count it as pure determination and patience that eventually landed a hen's tooth in my safe. At least with the OHG suppressor Knight's still produces them.

I got mine at a local gun shop a year ago. They show up here and there.

I was lucky enough to land in VERO BEACH, Florida when I retired and moved down from New York. Walked into a place my phone populated as LAWMANS & SHOOTERS SUPPLY listed as L.G.S. I hit the Holy Grail and walked out with a MARK 23 kit, KG serial number. The guys there are AWESOME and I later came to find out it was the "original" Knight's Armament plant, before Reed wanted to expand and Indian River County told him to 'go scratch' so he moved to Titusville. He left the location and still has the store/showroom open to support L.L.E. Go to the source and call (772)569-8700 ext. 152 and ask for Mark. He might just have one or access to a quicker one with his resources. Awesome dude and is nothing but a filthy enabler i.m.h.o.

At one time when you bought a new KAC can I believe they could laser etch it with a serial number that matched your pistol..

These guys always seem to have at least one on hand... probably because of their outrageous asking price ($1800 last time I emailed and asked).

MACHINE GUNS FOR SALE - AUTOWEAPONS.COM

The one below is currently on GB. It has a USPT piston assembly in it so you'll have to find a MK23 assembly if you can (~$600). Good luck with your search, 41F pretty much destroyed availability right now.

That's not encouraging considering I just sent off for the stamp about a month ago (not a KAC though). And mine will have the 41F panic forms to contend with.

I kid you not....I submitted a MARK 23 KAC can stamp on April 14th. So of course, like the anxious little kid I am, I start calling September 14th....at 5 months hoping for early magic. The automated message is, " WE ARE AT 6 MONTH WAIT TIMES.....etc." So October first I call, same message. Okay, n.b.d. 6 months, only 2 weeks left. So I call on October 14th......6 months exactly, right? Well, the new message is, " CURRENT WAIT TIMES ARE 8 MONTHS ! " Just got it out of jail last week (trust form). So yes, 8+ months it seems.

I've got a few that the checks cashed mid may 16', hopefully they are getting close. And just sent one in the other week that the check is pending as of today... It'll be fun to see if this one even comes back by the end of 2017........

Searching the net Jan. of this year and found a out of state C-3 dealer, had it transferred to my C-3 dealer 7 weeks f3 to f3 and waited my five months but here she is.

Well worth the wait...


The old AWC Nexus can was pretty good but the Knights is the cats MEOW. Yeah it's an older KG 23 but I'll hang on to it for a while.

Good Luck!

You guys are whiners. I waited almost 18 months for the stamp for my KAC CT suppressor. There was a paper work problem that caused a huge delay. So I don't wanna hear no bawlin' about waitin' no 8 months! lol. :biggrin:
