Compact Suppressor?

Are there any manufacturers that make a somewhat short or compact suppressor? (I.E. noticeably shorter than a standard suppressor.) Is it even possible to get a suppressor shorter than they are already?

Thinking along the lines of this

Thanks!

The Thompson Machine Poseidon and Degroat Tactical Nano are both pretty small... considered "micro-suppressors".

Checked both of those out, man they are small, almost smaller than the airsoft one in my first post. The Thompson has a small resemblence to a C02 canister, but still pretty awesome.

There are some small pistol cans on the market but they don't suppress very well.

AAC Ti-rant "S" series. They used to make them for mil only but released them to civilians. I've handled them but never shot one. If you check out AAC's website it says they do not quiet the weapon AS much but still are quiet.

I dont know if you're looking for something even smaller but hope that helps.

Micro or mini suppressors are cool. They fill a niche for those who already have a fullsize can. I wouldnt buy one as your first as you might not be happy with the fact you must shoot it wet for max db suppression.

Here is a review on the smallest setup you can get....
