obsidian 9 review

The Obsidian 9 is a full auto rated modular suppressor constructed of durable 17-4 stainless steel and lightweight aluminum. Weighing 12.7 ounces in the long configuration and 8.7 ounces in the short, it boasts versatility and maneuverability while offering impeccable sound reduction.

ADAPT(tm) Modular Technology

The ADAPT(tm) Module enables the user to convert the silencer from one length to another instantly, without removing it from the weapon. Using a click-together baffle system, the Obsidian can be configured in either a 7.8" or 4.8" length, giving shooters the ability to adapt their weapon to tactical needs.

Non-Slotted Piston Design

To minimize gas blowback, Rugged Suppressors decided to utilize a non-slotted piston design that creates a full circumference gas seal. This translates into impressive sound reduction when run dry or wet.

Suitable for a wide variety of cartridges, including 22lr and subsonic 300BLK!

The Obsidian is a full auto rated pistol can that's able to handle 22lr and subsonic 300BLK, as well as several other pistol caliber cartridges. It's belt-fed rated as well, which is an impressive feat in and of itself.

Built to withstand high rates of fire, the Obsidian is a solid choice for the discerning shooter. Featuring the non-slotted piston system and ADAPT(tm) Modular technology, this pistol can is a tough one.

While this can is rated for use on pistol caliber carbines and certain handgun magnum cartridges, it's primarily designed for semiautomatic host weapons. The can is a solid choice for dual-use on select-fire M-16s, and can even be used on a select-fire M16 lower with an FM-9 belt-fed 9mm upper receiver.
