Question for you suppressor guys

I was talking to my Sig rep today ordering a threaded barrel for my 229 Legion. And was asking about suppressors and he suggested that if I ordered one I should order the SRD 45 because that way I could use it on any 45 ACP as well as my 9 mm.
What say you guys?

The SRD45 is one of the suppressor's I bought. It is pictured on the TLE Pro (TFS) along with my suppressed 2 slice Red toaster. And yes if I had a TFS 9mm I could also use it.

Yes, 45cal cans can be used on smaller calibers. Cans designed for large calibers often don't suppress smaller calibers quite as well but not a huge difference. Weight and length are worthy of consideration. Cans for centerfire handguns are large heavy monstrosities hanging from the muzzle.

The most popular use of suppression at our club is on centerfire rifles and rimfire. Not so much centerfire handguns. The setup 2Sharp2 has with his suppressed Sig Rattler 300 is awesome, and rimfire cans are always great fun.

Happy suppressor hunting, there's a zillion to choose from.

I've ordered the barrel for my P229 and I'm thinking I will just stick with the SRD9 so as not to lose any suppression by using a SRD45 on my 9mm. The main reason I want a suppressor is for my night stand gun.
PS: I will have to add this to Phil's KT account for unexpected purchases.

Other than suppression, one thing about suppressors on autoloaders for self-defense is that you can shove the can into the bad guy and the gun will still fire. Otherwise, without the can the slide can get pushed out of battery and gun won't fire. Thump.

Just in case ya needed a bit more rationalizing before dropping a $1k+ for barrel, can and suppressor height sights.

I'm still shopping for a suppressor ready 1911 that I like and may buy a dedicated 9mm suppressor to leave on it.
Phils correct a zillion to chose from, all claiming to be the latest and greatest.

Another related question.

Will a suppressor also diminish the muzzle flash?

My barrel arrives from Sig SAUER on Wednesday so I'm going to take it to my dealer on Thursday to make sure it fits. I heard that some suppressors are threaded backwards? Or reversed?
