Anyone here have any experience or opinions on the Sig line of suppressors, specifically the SRD9 and SRD22X?
Sorry wish I had an answer for you but I’ve only shot a few of their rifle cans. I did like those
Stamps finally came in for these and have to say I’m highly disappointed with the SRD22X. The end cap would not come off. I destroyed the plastic tool trying to remove it. Finally had to mount a pair of needle nose pliers in a vise and use a significant amount of elbow grease to turn the cap off -it was screaming from metal on metal contact the entire way.
Looks like the cap was overtorqued at the factory and laid the internal threads flat. It’s not stripped, but the threads are shot. Needless to say the cap will not go back on more than two turns, leaving the baffle stack loose.
Bottom line is after waiting 9 months to get this it’s unusable and I’m going to have to engage Sig customer service to see what they’ll do. I’m mostly pissed at myself for not disassembling the thing prior to purchase 9 months ago.
Sorry to hear that. Sig should take care of you pretty quick!
Thanks @SuppressedNation_Chris. I hope so. I used Sig’s online contact system to send them a detailed email about the issue yesterday.
Let me know how it goes. John and Derek from sig are pretty active on ig so if they don’t help u fast enough maybe those guys can help.
I’ll keep everyone posted as things go. In the meantime, figured I’d put up some pics so everyone could see what I’m dealing with.
This is the disassembly tool. It’s plastic so was no match for the stuck end cap. Note the scoring around the edge from how much downward pressure I was putting on it to keep it from popping out. This just rounded the edges off:
Here’s the end cap. Best I can tell from what I’ve read it’s stainless steel. Threads on it appear to be okay:
View of the threads inside the tube. This is Titanium from what I’ve read. They’re not cross-threaded just flattened a little with no sharp ridges. I suspect overtorquing the cap caused this:
A pic of the disassembled unit. I also note the baffles look to have sharp grooves where they touch at the edges. Not sure if this is by design or from the stack being pressed together from the cap crushing them down on each other. They didn’t just fall apart like I’ve seen in some reviews online. I had to physically separate one from another to get them apart:
Finally, this is all the further the end cap will go back in before meeting substantially heavy resistance. It’s literally one full rotation after meshing with the lead threads. Of course the stack is loose inside and it can’t be used in this condition:
EDIT: Original post used pics from a 3rd party host that no longer exists. Was able to find the pics on my device and upload directly here. Hopefully they’re in the right order.
Got a really nice email and RMA number from Sig CS a few days ago. I’ve been really busy at work so just getting around to dropping it off to the shipper first thing in the morning.
Good to hear
Got this back from Sig yesterday. The service ticket states they replaced the end cap. I didn’t have time to fully inspect the repair, but the cap now comes off and goes back on with little resistance. They also sent a new cap removal tool.
Wanted to provide an update on this thread. The SRD22X has functioned flawlessly since its return from the factory. It’s an outstanding can: easy to use and keep clean.
This brings me to the SRD9. It’s been 100% and flawless from day one. My LGS has a few in stock and I’m strongly considering buying not one, but two more. I like the idea of parts compatibility across a known device. The only thing holding me back at the moment is I can’t help but think there’s more to life out there than what I already have. Any thoughts on buying multiples of the same can?
Do you really really need it or do you really really want it.
Is there anything I could put the money towards something more important? that’s what I always ask myself before I make a major purchase
Well yeah, clearly a want. Needs have all been met though.
You only live once, do what makes you happy. regardless of what others think.
Now you might need to worry what the wife thinks.
Check out CGS mod9, Rugged Obsidian 45 and 9, the Advanced Armament Tirant 45 and 9. They are all good cans. Griffin Armament has a new pistol QD adapter that you can buy the cam-lok piston for whatever can you own and then use barrel adapters to quickly swap all cans in between guns.
Wants-Needs its all muddy water😂
Yup I thought about it and I like it!
Thanks everyone. Chris… The Griffin barrel adapters sound interesting.
