What is the most effective suppressor? Coming in at #1 is the Rugged Obsidian 9: a pistol silencer that offers extreme versatility and one of the best warranties in the industry.

The Obsidian 9 is modular which gives you the choice to run it in its full configuration (12.7 ounces at 7.8 inches) or save some weight and length and run it in its short length (8.7 ounces at 4.8 inches). What is a modular suppressor? Modular refers to a suppressor that can be utilized in more than one configuration, usually short (AKA 'K') and full. The Obsidian 9 is also robust; the 17-4 stainless steel construction allows for a variety of hosts but it is at home on your 9mm handgun. It can also be used with certain centerfire rifle cartridges like 300BLK and even 350 Legend.

Choose between 10 different lengths for this suppressor, allowing the Odessa-9 to be what you need it to be on any given range day.
