I'm aware of the ups and downs of 45ACP suppressors but my mind is made up on getting one. Leaning heavily towards the mentioned piece because:
- Adjustable, while mounted, POI.
- O-ring to reduce blowback, especially when ran wet.
- Known manufacturer of quality products.
- I can get a barrel for all 4 of my 45 pistols with the same threading which means swapping bliss. Or hell, not sure on that one yet.
What I'm wondering is if anyone here actually owns one or has used one and some info on said experience.

<center><img src="http://www.impactguns.com/store/media/aac/phoenixp.jpg"></center><p>Not a huge fan of External suppresors on Browning Petter guns as the dropping block puts a lot of stress on parts and creates ALOT of whip as the suppressor flips up and down as the gun cycles. I like such suppressors on fixed barrel gun or one that doesn't drop the block. AAC makes gooooood **** so you can't go wrong with the actual suppressor and on a .45 there is no barrel whip like a glock or USP. Before you buy make sure your local sheriff approves suppressors, many don't.

The law enforcemnet sign-off options in my area are not willing to do so. Pretty ant-gun group all around. Thankfully I've got the Trust option and it is now in full force so their choice of being pricks is a non-issue at this time.
And an internal suppressor setup Ruger like yours is on the list but I want the 45 first.
I'm actually shopping to have 5.56 and 7.62 variants as well by the end of the year. No new firearms for the next 12 months. Just ammo and mufflers. :-)

Either one has to sign off on your paperwork. Some can be quirky about suppressors.

do it since he's worried about creating conflict between his office and the police. Nor will the coroner.
It's been thoroughly attempted by many folks in Central Ohio and all have had to resort to LLC or Trust options.
Perhaps if I was a local high-profile politician or millionaire they'd do it but that's not the case. Too bad as the millionaire part has possibilities. :-)
EDIT- To add location for clarification on where the issue getting a sign-off is located.
