View Full Version : M92fs Suppressor

May 14, 2011, 09:13 PM
Hey guys,

Haven't posted in quite a while, so like it or not, I'm back!

I'm about to invest in my first suppressor, going on my M92fs, and was wondering who on here has a suppressed 9mm? What kind do you have, any issues or suggestions?

Also what company would you suggest for buying a threaded barrel?

Thanks in advance.

Might seek info here


I reccomend Cousino's Firearms in Toledo for your shopping.

I shoot with a guy that has a 92 that's threaded for an EVO-9
(AAC)...factory barrel...I think Tornado Technologies did the work, but
would have to email to find out. I never would have thought there'd be
enough barrel in front of the slide to thread, but there is. Granted he
doesn't shoot it a lot (older gentleman) but he's never had any problems
with it.

I shoot a Sig P226 with a Trident9 suppressor. I have two complaints about my setup. One is the particulate crap that gets shot back at me from the recoil-booster device. The other is the tall suppressor sights I put on my P226.

If you are using a 92fs I have heard that you can use a 10 pound recoil spring and not have to use a recoil-booster (LID, Nielsen device, whatever). You will have to use a regular weight spring when shooting without the can.

As far as the sights go, I bought some AmeriGlow tall suppressor sights and they make my gun shoot about 6 inches high at 10 yards.

Thanks for the info guys.

I've heard of people using the factory barrel and having it machined, but I'm going to buy a new one so that there is more wiggle room so to speak, between the slide and the can.

How bad is the debris coming back at you?

Not that bad really.

An occasional slight sting from a hot piece of carbon hitting the face or neck. Just have to make sure you always have glasses on. Also not to wear a white shirt.

It puts some people off but I would rather the carbon on me than wear ear plugs while I shoot.

Some claim that the right hand loads will cut down on the carbon back blast but I couldn't tell you what those loads are.

I would assume just less powder?

My friend has a P22 Walther with a suppressor and he uses subsonic ammo and it's amazingly quiet, but sometimes misses a feed and jams. I'm assuming the same would happen with under powered rounds in the M92, so would using a lighter spring help enough to make it as reliable as before?

No. A different powder.

For input & topics about sound reduction or surpressors, I would look here; www.Silencertalk.com .
For barrels & threads I'd check out Irv Stone's highly rated Bar-Sto, KKM, Jarvis or maybe Storm Lake.
Ciener & Knight's Armament in central Florida make cans & sound reduction gear but I'm not sure of the other top companies for the M9/92FS pistol line.

Good US pistolsmiths for Beretta 92 series pistols include David Sams, Ernie Langdon & David Olhasso(check spelling).

Also, don't think sub-sonic ammo must be under powered. It is usually just a heavier bullet. I shoot 147 grain Winchester in my Sig.

I'm not really into sound surpressors or spec ops weapons but I'd suggest buying a 9x19mm can or system that can safely fire any factory made 9x19mm round not just the sub-sonic or "hush-puppy" loads.
To me, the 147gr JHP can work for most pistol applications but the 124gr or the Ranger T 127gr +P+ JHP is much better.
I'd look into the Surefire, Ciener & other popular brands too.

Surefire does not make centerfire pistol silencers, JA Ceiner has been out of the silencer business for like 15yrs now.

147gr 9mm ammo is not downloaded weak ammo. Just like 230grain 45ACP it is full power ammo that travels below the speed of sound. Using 124gr +p ammo would not hide the fact that a gun shot had happened and would be uncomfortable to shoot. So not much point in using that.

As I posted, Im not really into surpressors & special ops weapons, ;) .

I did look over the GEM-tech cans and the Tundra models seem to be a good choice for a 9x19mm Beretta 92FS.
