    Thanks in advance if you make it through this long post. We all have to start somewhere I suppose!

    Total suppressor FNG here but I'm finally ready to change that. I've been cooped up at home and researching options and applications, but frankly it's pretty overwhelming surfing through all the forums, gun websites, YT videos, etc. There are so many options and exponentially more opinions. So I'm turning to folks I may not know personally, but who I largely trust for advice, input, and suggestions.

    This suppressor would live on my PSA AK-V as my primary home defense gun - PCC in 9mm, 1/2-28. It would visit the range, but would experience few high volume and/or rapid fire scenarios - no more mag dumps for this bad boy (the ranges here are TERRIBLE). I'm not much of a handgun guy at all, but as many of you know I do love my AKs. It would be awesome to have a PCC suppressor that could also work on an Arsenal SLR or a Galil ACE.

    Besides the Liberty Mystic X, I'm not finding many options that can handle such disparity and realize you sacrifice performance for the sake of a "do all" suppressor. Alternatively, the Dead Air Wolfman looks nice and I dig the ability to convert it to short configuration as well.

    TL;DR - is it practical/realistic to think I can play around with a suppressor that handles 7.62x39, 5.45, 5.56, and 9mm while protecting my wife's and my hearing in an (God forbid) emergency? Or should I turn my focus to a can designed specifically for 9mm/PCCs (I do dig the Rugged Obsidian9), and then if it is as fun as I think it'll be I just bite the proverbial bullet and add a PBS-1 down the road?

    There are literally hundreds if not thousands of options and suggestions out there, but if some of you guys with experience in this field could choose one or two cans to be the last you'd ever own (that also kinda match my criteria above), what would they be?

    Guys - many thanks for your input. I can read and read and read but it all blends together and gets quite confusing. I really appreciate the help.

    I doubt any 9mm suppressor can't handle x39... I've shot plenty of 300blk supers through several pistol cans, including one of those cheap chicom wix form 1 cans... It's really not that much pressure.

    I think eventually you'll blow up most 9mm cans with the pressure from 7.62. You can do it for a while but having burst a SWR 9mm Trident can myself on an AK don't consider it something you can do for long. There are cans out there now that are basically rifle cans with large bores that will live but most garden variety pistol cans arent going to last long

    Ballistic Research and Machine in Jacksonville, NC makes some great cans that are worth looking into. I've ran my BR&M 9mm QD can on everything from my PCC to my 6.5CM without issues. He also makes a brake to mount it to your AK in 762x39. You can get them in tool steel and in full titanimum and even the 9mm cans are rated up to 300 WinMag. 910-324-4900 is their number.
