I've heard it's not wise to suprress a composite like the 9mm xd tactical because of the blow back. Is this correct? I know it voids the warranty, but since I'm buying a 9mm can I'd love to be able to use it on my XD.
Maybe the person I spoke to was wrong, but that's what I was told when I called Springfield. I'm not that worried about the warrenty as long as I can in fact put one on and have it not damage the gun...which is great news thanks for the help!
So where do I go to find a TB? Is it better to buy an extra one and send it to the can company or is there a company that sells a TB for the XD 9?
TBs can be bought from EFK, BarSto, StormLake, and few others.
I bought StormLake, as their website was very easy to use compared to the others, and they appear to be the only ones that sell a .55" extra length barrel, versus a 1.05" barrel-the .50" being completely unneeded, and just looking weird.
Springfield is a marketing company, just keep that in mind when you call them.
Pistol Gear's match barrels are perfect for suppressors. They should be threaded to your can specs. We thread barrels regularly for compensators and suppressors, so if you decide to go for some odd ball can keep that in mind. Standard threading is 1/2" x 28 for a 9mm.
