Rugged Obsidian 45 Suppressor

Recommended Posts

Ordered one from Suppressor Shop & am clue less about how you attack the can to the firearm.

 

Primary use will be for a 9mm  Scorpion EVO 3 S1 pistol and a SOLGW AR15 Pistol in 300 blackout.

 

How does one go about screwing the can to the barrel........

Do you have the piston installed? (assuming direct thread, the bottom left hand of the picture shows the exposed portion of the piston with female threads)

Also, if your can is using the Nielsen device, if it's anything like the one I have, for a fixed barrel, you will want to run a fixed barrel spacer.  Or, in your case, it appears to be

If you're running a 3 lug barrel:

Or something like this for direct thread:

The Nielsen device, due to the extra mass from the suppressor, is a booster which allows the handgun to cycle while the can is attached.

Since the Scorpion and the AR are both fixed barrels, you won't need the Nelson Device.

If you intend to screw it on, direct thread, then you won't need anything else special as long as they're both 5/8-24 threaded.

 

Personally, I would look into their QD adapters, and then get two (male side). Rate of fire out of what you're shooting will heat that dude up pretty quickly, and a QD attachment along with a high-temp cover is going to be a lot quicker and more pleasant to take off. Particularly handy if you don't want to have to let it cool down between changing weapons.

At this time the can has been paid for & paperwork submitted, so the waiting game in on...........

 

This is what it comes with:

 

  • .578×28 Piston (fits most standard .45 Auto threaded barrels)
  • 45 Front Cap
  • Obsidian 45 Suppressor
  • ADAPT Module
  • Operator’s Manual
  • Obsidian Logo Sticker

From what I understand I can get a 3 lug barrel for the Scorpion EVO and it's got e1/2x28 threads and the AR has 5/8x24 threads that fit a fixed mount

That's what I'd do.  I went 3 lug on my machinegun because direct thread can be a pain to deal with, always having to make sure it's not coming loose.  I remember watching a video of a guy demonstrating the point of impact shift his suppressor was giving between being fully tightened, and about an 1/8 of a turn loose. It wasn't an insignificant shift either.     

 

Like Longhair said, just swap it over to the 5/8x24 fixed barrel mount for the .300.

Well there you go! :thumb: A three-lug for the Scorpion, and the 5/8-24 for the AR, and you're in business!

 

Now check out this guy for a cover.

I have one of his ELR rear bags.  I really like it.  He’s making some good stuff, and selling a bunch of his stuff over on that snipery site.  He started out with a sewing machine, and wanting to make a better rear bag than what’s available, selling a couple on the hide.  Im going to get one of his Comp Bags next.  

And yes, lots of good reviews on his suppressor covers.

I'm trying to figure out the 3 lug vs screw on vs quick mount and for whatever reason Rugged does not recommend the 3 lug on a fixed barrel like the Scorpion or the AR & they favor screw on cans. Seems the attachment styles are varried and making my head hurt, but I've got a few month to learn what the heck they are and how they work.....

Not much to it at this point. The hard part is done. Now just go to your local pharmacy or copy center and have the stamped paperwork copied on both sides (several copies), then keep one everywhere you might want to have it. And you can't have too many copies. I keep one in my wallet, one in the box with the can, one in my range box, and one in the lockbox cabled to the seat in my ride. The rest are in a stack on top of the safe, where I can find them should I want another for somewhere else, like a case I'm using.

 

Congrats on the arrival of your new baby! The fun is about to begin! :segrin:

You can reduce it if you want, but keep in mind that both sides must be legible, so you can realistically only make it so small.

I was thinking that shrinking it down and laminating em would help with protecting them in nasty weather so worst case scenario they would be readable.
