AB Suppressor just launched one of the smallest, lightest 9mm silencers anywhere, the Phantom. Made entirely of titanium, the Phantom weighs just 4.4 ounces. But is it enough suppressor to, you know, suppress the sound of a gunshot? Let’s find out!
Turns out…yes, yes it is enough suppressor (view the Rumble-hosted video embedded above, or click HERE). In fact, it’s surprisingly quiet given its extremely compact size and insanely light weight.
It’s so dang light, in fact, that although it features a 1/2×28″ fixed mount and is designed for PCC (pistol caliber carbine…AKA guns with fixed barrels) use it ran reliably for me on multiple handguns with tilt-barrel recoil operated systems. With, mind you, fairly gently-loaded subsonic ammunition. Very impressive.
For what it’s worth, the Phantom would also work fine on 300 Blackout, especially when shooting subsonic ammo. However, due to the 1/2×28″ mount you’d have to use a thread adapter since there aren’t any 300 BLK firearms with that muzzle thread size.
As AB Suppressor isn’t currently available at Silencer Shop, which is where I’d normally direct y’all since they make the suppressor buying process so dang easy, we’ve chosen to carry these AB Suppressor Phantoms (and Raptors) at Black Collar Arms and will simply transfer the suppressor up to your local NFA dealer. Cerakote available.
Yes, that’s how much I like this Phantom. Even though Black Collar doesn’t make a firearm that works with this suppressor, we’ve chosen to carry it because we really like it. It’s a very cool can.
