SilencerCo .45 Osprey

SilencerCo .45 Osprey

The Osprey is a non-user-serviceable suppressor with a unique offset design


The SilencerCo Osprey uses a unique 'offset' design that allows pistol sights to be visible over the suppressor in some cases.

Here are a couple of general rules to help you determine if your pistols sights will be visible over the Osprey:

  • If you have a .45 pistol with high sights, you'll be able to see your sights even with the Osprey installed.  Most metal-frame pistols, like the Sig P220 or 1911 fall into this category.

  • If you have a polymer pistol (like a Glock or M&P) - or are using the Osprey with sub-calibers, then you probably won't be able to view your factory sights with the Osprey.

Please keep in mind that the Osprey is NOT user serviceable.

From the Manufacturer

SilencerCo's Osprey family of pistol suppressors (or silencers, as often called) is a perfect blend of form and function.

With the modern combat handgun in mind, SilencerCo set out to create a silencer that performs well and looks like it belongs, the best possible marriage between host weapon and silencer. SilencerCo went to work to make a suppressor that maximizes sound suppression levels, allows the use of more host pistols with factory sights, and has more operationally friendly features. What was created was the Osprey pistol silencer available for 9mm, .40 S&W, and 45ACP.

Although round silencers are very effective for many applications, for a centerfire handgun round it has its limits. To obtain the most suppression, silencers must have as much internal volume as possible; but for a round tubular silencer, the only way to acquire more internal volume is by increasing the overall diameter and/or length. Increasing a tube's diameter will obscure the site picture of the host gun and inhibit the possibility of holstering a weapon with the silencer still attached to the host gun.

The Osprey is an eccentric silencer, which means that the bore does not run down the middle of the tube. Because of this eccentric design, most of the baffles and internal volume is beneath the centerline of the bore and out of the way of the gun's sights, thus leaving the shooter the ability to use factory sights with little or no sight or target obstruction. The Osprey has flat side walls and angled edges that mimic many modern combat handgun slides and is just slightly wider than most host pistols. This feature allows the host weapon to be holstered with many popular open bottom holster designs with Osprey attached. The Osprey contains approximately 30% more internal volume than a traditional round tube silencer at the same length, but does so without obscuring the shooter's sight picture or adding excessive width and length.

    I bought this can to use exclusively on my .45 ACPs. I have a number of them and the Osprey is great. It complements the black guns and the shape makes it look good even on the 1911s. It does a great job in quieting the .45 bark, and the ability to clock it on different guns keeps it looking good. I have yet to shoot it wet but from what I read that should be a treat also. I'm glad I have this in my gun safe and I use it a lot.

  • Freddie2/9/2016

    If you could only buy one pistol suppressor, then this is the one! Amazing performance, lightweight, and no more tall sights to see over a can. Truly impressed with this can in every way. You can shoot .45 acp, 40 s&w, 9mm and subsonic 300 blackout through one can. If you can afford to buy a can for every caliber then more power to you, if you need a general purpose for multiple calibers then this is a great choice. You won't regret it!

  • RazorUSMC9/18/2015

    I bought this to use on my H&K USP .45 and FNX 45. it adds a little weight to the front of the weapon but not too much that you can't control it. Its a great silencer and i enjoy shooting it. I all so have the Octane .45 in Jail. I enjoy being able to shoot pistols with out hearing protection on. Silencerco and Silencer Shop make a great team and have the best Prices.

  • Chrisy5/13/2015

    Recently received my Osprey 45 and I am very pleased. This can is visually appealing as well as effective. I've used on my FNX Tactical and Glock 21. You will not regret this purchase.

  • Robert4/20/2015

    This thing wet on the HK 45c, only host yet tested, is amazing! Slight POI shift (2" low @ 50m+, but otherwise almost poa = poi on in), but only have ran Fiocchi 230gr .45 FMJ through it as of yet. Was debating on this and the AAC Ti-Rant 45S, which was out of stock, but having no regrets.

  • Jorge Da Silva12/28/2014

    Works great on 300 blackout, 45ac, 9mm, & 7.62x38r. Latch became a little loose & Silencrco fixed it asap

  • brian_j.11/26/2014

    Unique look, VERY light and very adaptable. Plug in a 9 mm piston and you're shooting it on a Glock 19. I've run it on that and an FNX 45 and love the can. Different than a simple thread on suppressor due to the locking and alignment piece. Very low so sights aren't obstructed. I've only put 300 rounds through it in 45 and a 100 in 9mm. Either way very happy with the purchase. Makes shooting the FNX that much more enjoyable.

  • seren4/25/2014

    My osprey lives on a Caspian Recon 1911 with a storm lake barrel. The gun was amazingly accurate before the can, and nothing changes when the can is mounted. This is my absolute favorite gun to shoot. I built the gun before I had the can and the sight picture sits just at the top of the can. The offset bore makes lower sights serviceable, though the low profile carry style will likely be obscured. As far as sound reduction goes, it amazing. It sounds about like hitting a board with a hammer. In suburbia, where I live, I can shoot in my back yard without issue. Neighbors may hear something, though they'd never suspect its full power 45 acp.

  • CDPhil4/25/2014

    originaly bought this in 2012 with a sig tacops 1911 since then i have ran it on a beretta 96 and a few sig 9mm cans while my octane is pending...this can is amazing lighter then other .45 cans and is great with a bit of water/gel is added I love how the can conforms to the slide profile and most normal sights will be over it...If i had to buy another i would do it again in a heat beat

  • Matthew H.4/23/2014

    - AMAZING suppression. First round pop is there, but only barely noticeable in my opinion. When fired wet, FRP is eliminated and is as quiet if not more quiet than my suppressed .22s. I have surprised a lot of people after letting them shoot .22 first and then handing them a .45 (wet) and it's no louder. Even dry it is well under what I consider hearing safe.
    - Easy maintenance. I love monolithic cores and their ease of cleaning. You don't have to take apart a column of stacks, clean them individually, and then put them back together.
    - Lightweight. For its size it is very lightweight. Not the lightest out there by any means, but you expect it to be heavier when looking at it and are surprised after picking it up.
    - Short length. A lot of .45 cans out there are significantly longer. You can always get used to the weight. The more you shoot it, the more your muscles will adapt. But you're stuck with the length of a can.
    - Cool looks (subjective). I like the way this can looks on full size pistols with square slides (I use it on an XDM and Glock 23 with a 9mm conversion barrel).
    - Zero POI shift on any pistol I've used with it.

    - Heavier than other round aluminum suppressors. Again, I don't mind the trade off for superior suppression levels and shorter length.
    - Can be hard to perfectly align. I'm a little OCD, and if it's not *perfectly* aligned it bothers me. Also, if you don't tighten it enough to keep it from coming loose, it starts to rotate and looks funny as you're shooting. You won't notice it on a round can, although I guess it's a good thing to know when it's starting to loosen.
    - Ugly looks (subjective). I don't like the way it looks on 1911s.
    - Stock sights won't clear. The top of my XDM and G23 sights sit flush with the top of the can, so you're still "shooting through" the can just a little. When using an AAC Ti-Rant, the sights were completely covered and then some. So you will still probably need taller than stock sights, but not by much.

    In summary, this can will provide superior suppression to just about any other can out there, especially when wet. I have shot it side by side with a buddy's AAC Ti-Rant. The Osprey is barely quieter after the 1st shot (Ti-Rant seemed to have less first round pop). It also has a different tone. To me it sounded a little deeper than the Ti-Rant, which to me is more pleasing. Being all aluminum, this can is probably not as bullet proof as the Ti-Rant, but is by no means fragile. It is also much easier to clean. Definitely has a "tacti-cool" factor. If you can afford it, and don't plan on taking it into battle in the mountains, it will no doubt last you a lifetime and you'll never regret it.

  • patrick4/23/2014

    This is truly an amazing suppressor. The first time I ever fired it was with 230 grain 45ACP while the can was dry and it amazed me. After adding 5cc's of wiring pulling gel and shooting it, it made my 22LR with a Gemtech Outback IID sound loud. It was unbelievably quiet. The best way I can put it, is that dry the Osprey 45 sounds like a nail gun. When it is wet, it sounds like a muffled nail gun.

    The Osprey 45 has the perfect balance when attached to a host. The weight added is barely noticeable. Now I've only shot this out of 5 host guns. The only time I've had extreme blow back is with the FNX 45 Tactical. It's like there is a squid spitting at you almost every shot. But on an XDM 9mm, Glock 35, HK P30L and HK USP45 the blow back of carbon is barely noticeable. Truly unsure as to why the FNX 45 Tactical is like that, but it will not phase anyone after the first time it happens regardless of the host firearm.

    Shooting sub calibers such as 9mm and 40s/w out of is also extremely enjoyable. This would make a great first suppressor as you can have one suppressor that can take care of a bevy of host with just the change of the piston. Compared to shooting a dedicated 9mm suppressor verses using the Osprey 45 with a 9mm host is noticeable, but mind you it is not that noticeable. Best way I can describe it is that the Osprey 45 on a 9mm host just has a deeper sound to it verses a dedicated 9mm suppressor.

    Cleaning is extremely simple and straight forward. Take it apart, clean the piston and spring and the end cap and replace the O-ring if it is all chewed up. Also a key note that if you don't replace your O-ring on the end cap when it looks like a dog chewed it your suppressor will sound louder. Replacing it is straight forward and doesn't take more than 5 minutes even when you struggle doing it.

    Overall, this is a great suppressor. Dry or wet it never ceases to amaze me on how well it suppresses. Best of all, the finish on it is great. It does not scratch very easily and I have banged it around a few times on accident without much incident.

  • Gene from CT4/19/2014

    I'm lucky enough to own many suppressors so I have been able to make good comparisons. Biggest con with this can (and all the Ospreys for that matter) is first round pop when dry . By the second round however, the suppression is at least as good as anything on the market. The two biggest pros are the devastatingly good looks and the suppression level when wet. Due the large volume, the Osprey responds to coolant like nothing else I have ever seen. FRP is completely eliminated and the suppression level is astounding. The .45 wets better than the 9. (I don't own the 40 so I can't comment). The Osprey 45 dry is good but when wet, its quieter than my sparrow 22 dry or wet. It's Hollywood quiet. When I want to impress newbies, I pull out the FNX tactical with the wet Osprey and watch the jaws drop.

  • Jeff4/19/2014

    Debated between Ti-Rant 45 and the Osprey 45 for a while. Very happy I went with the Osprey 45. While I have not shot a Ti-Rant, I do not regret my decision one bit.

    Very quiet on XDM45, medium suppression on Glock .40 and Sub 2000 .40, but is fairly loud on 9mm pistols. Stock sight on XDM are very useable with can installed. Cam adjustment for clocking the suppressor to different hosts is very easy.

    Bottom line, this is an excellent .45 can, and price is very good as well.

  • Edward4/18/2014

    My first 45 calibre suppressor. With the optional pistons (ordered from Silencer Shop and

    received a couple days later) the Osprey 45 works amazingly well on 9mm and 300 AAC

    blackout. I have this and the Ti-Rant 45 and they are very very close decibel wise. With wire

    pulling gel the Osprey 45 is scary quiet. My prefered host accuracy wise atm is a FNH Fnx-

    45T with Trijicon RM06 on it. It really is cheating at pistol range distances. Running it wet

    on a Sig MK25 with subsonic rounds is movie quiet. So many options with this can!

    Living in Texas and purchasing suppressors through Silencer Shop is a no brainer.

  • jkshaw4/18/2014

    I have had one of these for about a year now and no complaints here, nothing but smiles!
    I use it on a FNX .45 pistol, a Kriss Super V SBR and a 300 BLK Handi Rifle w/subs only.
    Thanks Silencer Shop!

  • mitstvhad4/18/2014

    This was my first pistol suppressor. I had used several others brands at a local range and others that some friends of mine had and I have to say that I was quite pleased with the performance of the Osprey over their suppressors on the same host weapons. I run it on a 1911 Sig and even more recently a 9mm AR that I built. I dont have any issue with POI shifts on the AR and with 147gr ammo about all I can hear is the action cycling. It even looks great on an AR platform. Cant wait to try it on a 300 blackout when I get done with that build. Love the versatility of this suppressor. Even the finish stands up very well to the abuse I have put on it. Still looks like new and I have wacked it several times on barriers when I was swinging around to engage other targets.

  • thomas4/18/2014

    Bottom Line - Nice Suppressor. I have used it on my .45, .40 and 9mm. It makes the .45 a lot more fun to shoot and (for me) it is at hearing safe levels when i used out doors.

    Suppresses the 9mm very well with no issue ( i do not have a 9mm dedicated can to compare against) and just like the .45, hearing safe when I fire outdoors.

    Used it on my FNX Tactical and M&P Core. Both came with suppressor height sights and was no issue. On my XDm with regular height night sights, the Osprey will block the sights. However with 2 eyes open shooting, it was not really an issue.

    While the feature that allows you to line the Osprey up correctly is nice, other regular round cans require less set up and just simply screw on. Not a big deal, just a note.

  • pwissinger4/9/2014

    One of the best around. While it may not have POI adjustment like round cans, I have not had any issues with needing to adjust POI unlike other cans I have tried. This makes for consistent, repeatable POI even when changing pistons.

    Works great for 45
    Work OK on .40
    Noticed no major difference between a 9mm with this can or the 9mm version, only the .45 has a slightly deeper tone, granted the 9mm version is more compact. Still sounded like a suppressed .22LR shooting 9mm wet in the 45 osprey.

    I like the fact that standard trijicon night sights on my .45s are either flush or clear it entirely. My Glock 22 and 19 are just a hair below clearing the can, not enough to warrant replacing the sights.

    My only complaint, is that shooting this wet is VERY messy, even more than my cobra 45 M2.

    But on the plus side it is better with subsonic .300 Blackout than my YHM 7.62 Ti QD.... better tone and less blowback, and a tad bit more quiet.
