I picked up my Omega 9k a few weeks ago and thought you would all like some pics. I have about 600 rounds through it.

So far I have shot it with the Silencero fixed thread mount and with the Rugged 3 lug mount. The combos have worked 100%. Not quite as quiet as my Octane but way more maneuverable. The Octane is so long it is a more of a "sometimes" can. The Omega is so short and light I could leave it on all the time, I hardly notice it.

I also compared the Rugged 3 lug mount to the Silencerco 3 lug mount. The Rugged is much tighter with no wobble whereas there is definitely some wobble in the Silencerco mount. The Rugged is also of course way shorter.

I do recommend using grease on the mount threads to make sure you can unscrew the mount from the can for cleaning. This especially applies when using the Rugged mount since there is not much material to grip onto to loosen it. If you get the mount stuck in the can, just mount the can on a three lug then unscrew the can from the mount.

I am really pleased with the combo, it is an awesome 9mm SBR can.

How do you like that lower and safety compared to the original? Also, what difference in suppression do you notice between the Silencerco and Rugged 3 lug mounts?

Love the lower. I have small hands so the smaller grip and extended safety work out great for me, I highly recommend it.

Regarding a difference in suppression, honestly I didn't really notice any difference but I wasn't listening for it. Both are pretty darn quiet for as small as the can is.

Good to know. I've only fired my Omega 9K with a Silencerco 3 lug. Did you get the lower and safety from HKparts?

Good to know on the 3 lug with SiCo cans. Thanks for the share, those SBR's are NICEEEEE.

Question, what sight and mounts are you using on the Z5RS? I'm in the process now of looking for options. Are you able to get co witness with your irons?

Thanks! Sight mount is a B&T 10266 with an Aimpoint T1. Lower 1/3ish co witness. Works great for me.

They look great! I've been eyeballing the Rugged mount. Adam from NFA Review has great things to say about it as well.

Thanks! That is of course your handguard on the Z-5RS. It is outstanding, fits perfectly, locks up great, very comfy in my smallish hands. Great job on it! And I just put one of your recoil rod assemblies in the Z-5P and ran 200 rounds through it today and it ran great.

If you don't mind... what are the dimensions of the suppressor in those pics (length and diameter)? It looks fantastic with both guns. I have a 9mm suppressor Form 1 waiting to be approved now and my idea was to make it short and fat like that. It's good to know it performs well!

nice setup!, i'm waiting on my omega9 to get out of NFA jail as well. I have an Octane 45 with both a SiCo and Griffin Armament 3 lug to swap back and forth, one thing i heard at least for use with the Octanes is, that SiCo designed there mount that way to have more of a stand off of where the end of the barrel will be to create a 1st blast chamber and volume for the suppressor. Extended use (whatever amount that means???) it's said to show faster wear on the first baffle in Octanes being ran with a griffin ( or Rugged style, i would gather). But with how robust the Omega9 looks I'm hoping it will not matter. I noticed better/tighter lockup with the Griffin than the SiCo 3 lug mount as well.

thanks for the info OP!

I am 6 months into my wait on my omega 9k so I will definitely be picking up a rugged tri lug mount for my SBRs....had no idea rugged trilug was compatible with SiCo!

thanks!

Anyone have any input on this or real life long term experience? I have never heard of this before. Would like to find out more info before I pull the trigger on a Rugged 3 lug as I hear they are the best.

The baffles are easily replaceable in an Octane so I would not be too worried about it. In my experience the Rugged mount is much more secure which I would think reduces the chance of baffle and end cap strikes if it is all lined up properly from the get go. My Sico mount is much looser and several times I have gotten end cap strikes with it with my Octane. Silencerco replaced the end cap each time but it is un-nerving. With the Octane is was not too much of a big deal since the end cap screws out but the Omega it is fixed. In fact I had given up on 3-lug mounts and was just going to use my direct threads mounts until I got this Rugged mount. Now thankfully with the Rugged mount I can use the 3-lug again.
