Ya ya yah I know to some people think the USP is played out. It was cool 10 years ago and most people rather have a Glock/Sig/SpringF....ect... I am guilty too of liking the whole tactical mall ninja style armament, and get flak for it from the SASS revolver and old 1911 guys.

So after selling HK's since I was 21, worked at 3 gunshops, today I broke down and bought a brand new (not used), full size USP 9mm, the SD. After 10 years, the USP full size still gives me a hard-on.


I like the big target sights ( just for target shooting), the high cap mags, (and the clear mags!) and the way these things shoot! Plus, they look cool. I think the original USP beats the new models in looks and reliability.

Ive wanted one for along time. I resisted buying the recently imported German P7 PSP's. I sold my USPc45. So, Im going thru HK withdrawls. Bad.




Im going to get started on the ATF paperwork, and in WA we need "sign off", and special trust/corp/non-profit paperwork too. So, while its in the pipeline, laying on the LE's desk for the next few months (or years, lol) I need a fake suppressor for it too. Enough smalltalk.




Question for you guys:

1) Where the hell can I get a Faux Suppressor ( a fake silencer ) that will fit the factory HK threads? I want a display model, but do the fake .45 cans fit a 9mm??

2) What can should I get for it?
A) I started reading silencertests.com/http://www.silencertalk.com, and read about most every model of 9mm Can.
B) Is there any difference between the Gemtech Trinity, Evo9, Nexus, Yankee Hill...ect...
C) should I spend the extra cash and buy the Bling-tastic Carbon Fiber Impuls II from CCFA? http://www.ccfa.com/CarbonFiber.htm
D) Whats wrong with the 9mm QuickSilver? They are half price!
E) What about used Cans?

2 things for you -

First, you said you looked at www.silencertests.com, but have you looked at silencerresearch.com? He has tests with video and actual deciber meter readings of most of the silencers you mentioned, and some are on a USP.

But secondly - and this may be bad news for you - You need to carefullycheck the laws concerning suppressors in Washington state - I'm 99% sure that while you can legally POSSESS a registered suppressor, you cannot legally USE said suppressor.

In other words, it's fine to own it, but if you ever actually screw it onto a barrel and shoot a bullet through it, you can go to jail.

True.

Its a $50 fine or something. A misdimenor. We now have at least 5 shops around Seattle that retail suppressors, that you arent allowed to shoot!

Fortunately, the ranges that sell them to you seem to look the other way when using them on their property. Its not encouraged, or enforced. Its illegal by technicality, but it also in the process of being removed in court. Thats how I got to try a few. LE sales demo suppressors at a LE range. They dont publicly advertise it, but there are a few hundred suppressor owners around Seattle/Boeing/Starbucks/Microsoft surrounding area.

I put after market mufflers on my motorcycle, which is technically Illegal. The manufactures have to abide by a rule that says "no louder than 82db @ 100ft". But how many people here have a problem with a bike or an HK that sounds cool?

Im just wondering where to find a WA legal faux suppressor? And, what real registered tax stamp Can model you think is "cool"est?

As for me, I might actually shoot it while at one of the big shoots in nearby Oregon or Idaho. I rarely actually shoot anymore. I would just enjoy ownership. The "cool" factor.

You guys have some nice stuff

Plus, I got some time to read up of them before I buy. The wife gave me the green light on buying the new toy, but I dont think she has any idea what a HK costs. Or a Carbon fiber Can. and tax stamp. and 9% sales tax. or the Diamond earings that cover my tracks by buying her something nice too....

. lol She thinks $50 is alot to spend on non-nessisity items! So I got some secret saving to do..

Look at the SWR Trident9 or the AAC Evo-9. Both are excellent suppressors. The Gemtech isn't even in the same league as either of those. If you want the B&T look you can go with the CCF but I'd stay away from the carbon fiber. There are reports of the tube separating.

As far as I'm concerned, the SWR and the AAC are the only 2 to look at.

They dicontinued the carbon fiber cans. I guess the were walling apart.

I really like the AAC Evo. Comes with pouch, stickers. manual. Everyone says its super quiet.

I wish I could get it before the Anual Punkin' Shoot! Oh well. I have two cases of Tannerite to play with until the quiet toy get ok'd.

I found two places that have fake suppressors. But I guess they are not mass produced.

Thanks for the comments
