The first silencer I ever bought was an AAC 762-SDN-6. Silencer #2 was an AAC Ti-Rant 9mm can. I’ve shot the ever-loving crap out of both silencers and the 9mm can is still going strong as my go-to MP5 accessory these days. That said, the design is a bit dated. The original Ti-Rant was a Mike Smith, Hunter Terhune, and Kevin Brittingham love child, but Kevin moved on about six years ago and the design hasn’t budged since. Now AAC has updated the design for the modern era and re-released it for SHOT Show 2017.
From the updated product description:
Its back and better! Behold the evolution of the most legendary 9mm silencer on the planet. Introducing the AAC Ti-RANT 9M! All the features and performance you came to love from the Ti-RANT 9 and 9S (short or “K”) in one improved package! New for 2017 Ti-RANT 9M (Modular) features a tool less take down design allowing the user in a matter of seconds the ability to reconfigure the Ti-RANT 9M from a full sized 8.0” long silencer (9.5 oz) into a 5.84” compact model (7.75 oz)!
One stamp – two silencer configurations. The main tube is constructed from Grade 9 Titanium for durability and light weight; while the front module tube is made from high strength 7075-T6 Aluminum for weight savings. The Ti-RANT 9M can be easily hand-disassembled without special tools to allow the entire baffle stack to be removed for cleaning and maintenance.
Not content to just offer a modular version of the legendary Ti-RANT 9, the new Ti-RANT 9M was optimized for even better sound reduction. In the full-size configuration, the Ti-RANT 9M turns in an impressive 33dB reduction while the compact (short or K) configuration meters 23dB reduction.
Modular silencers seem to be pretty popular these days. AAC started adding this as an option to their 45 caliber silencer in the last couple years and now seems to be extending it to the other versions. MSRP is $799, but Silencer Shop has it available for $699.
