The NFA review channel posted a quick video on their Facebook which shows the Rugged Obsidian 45 mounted on a Dakota Tactical MP5K RS and MP5 via the new Rugged 3 lug adapter.

The adapter is internal so the short configuration of the Obsidians looks nice and compact on the K gun. I just thought you guys may like to see it.

I'm waiting on one too and I should have the stamp any day now. The adapters are not available for sale yet, but the are supposed to be going out VERY soon.

Hmmmmmm, mine should be around soon!! I wonder if the Griffin and SICO interface with the Rugged never thought to try or ask??

Me too! Do you really need the 9mm end cap though? Won't it work just fine with the .45?

I need 13.5x1 LH and 16x1LH pistons for my obsidian45 to go on HK45T and p30.

I bought an extra griffin 3-lug mount for the Obsidian as well. Works on my Octane9, so will work on obsidian.

Still, when rugged has one to sell, I will buy one.

I use a SilencerCo Octane 45, and shoot 9mm through it with a variety of hosts. I contacted SilencerCo about using a 9mm end cap and they recommend against it. They've seen end cap strikes with the smaller diameter cap on a .45 can. You can argue that it shouldn't happen, but at least with direct thread, things come loose sometimes, and occasionally wobble. The minimal benefit didn't seem worth the risk of a buggered can.

Silencerco pistons work. I'm still waiting until late August for rugged to sell theirs. That's when they said they'd be restocked.

Yes, the silencerco pistons will work, I just wanted the pistons without the unnecessary groove. Might/should reduce blowback.

Indeed! Thanks for the post. Yeah I have a prototype version, it's done they are just waiting on custom springs for it. They should be releasing it asap! Most of you know I provide photos Rugged and other companies out there so I'll share these here to give you a better look at the 3-lug.

I will say this is the most solid 3 lug mount I've ever used. I don't know if this is a internal vs external thing but there is ZERO wobble. I've had issues with Gemtech and Silencerco (both external) 3-lug wobbling on my 9mm Glock mag SBR's barrel. The Obsidian mount is SOLID. If I had to guess, this has to do with the way the piston inside is machined. It seems the internal type 3-lugs have more surface area surrounding the 3-lug barrel once inside.





















I like the 9mm endcap. The Obsidian didn't exhibit any increased port pop and shooting the full length setup on a G17 wet with the 9mm endcap was a religious experience lol. I shoot cans every other day and I was taken aback. That being said.... don't forget to swap the endcap back when moving to a 45 host! DOH!

Thanks for showing up and giving us a first hand account!

While I've got you here I have a quick question that I haven't been able to get an answer to. Will Silencerco fixed barrel spacers work with the Obsidian?

My Obsidian stamp will arrive any day now and I really want to run it on my UMP conversion with a 16X1 LH M threaded barrel. However, I have been told that Rugged will not making a mixed mount in that thread pitch or a fixed barrel spacer of there own. I have been dying to figure this out, thanks!

I have been researching for my 9mm and 10mm clones. I had pretty much decided on this suppressor. It looks great on the k. I'm definitely going to buy one.
Just called Silencer Shop , they said they should have these back in stock within 30-60 days.
