Finally

After 11 months I finally got both my tax stamps back for my SIG MPX SBR -K and Liberty Mystic X multi-cal suppressor. I went ahead and purchased a SIG Romeo 4 Red Dot as the optic to test out and because they offered a great price on it. SIG also had a sale on their 30 round Gen 1 magazines. I was able to snag 5 of them for just around $100. I ordered a 3 Lug muzzle device to replace the factory A2 bird cage which will allow me to quickly change suppressor from the MPX to pistol. The bag is a Crye Precision. It was the smallest, least tactical looking bag I could find that would also let me mount the weapon, suppressor and such inside on a sturdy frame. Here is my set up.

Now THAT'll work... !

You might want more than one mag in the bag, though?

They are in the mesh compartment on the left. Look closely.

Bad ass. I have the 8 inch model. Now I need a suppressor.

Thanks

I was lucky to find the 4.5" model when I did. If i had to go with the 8" I was going to cut the barrel down to 4.5". If I had to do it all over again I would do exactly like I have except instead of the Mystic-X suppressor I would have gotten a shorter, 9mm only suppressor.

That is my plan. More of the SD style.

What can did you go with? I am really looking at sending in my barrel and having Innovative Arms do the work on it and send me it and their suppressor for $725+shipping. I picked up the 4.5in barrel as a back-up / non-suppressed version and so that I can shoot it while the other barrel w/ suppressor sits in NFA jail.

Does anyone else have any other suggestions for the best suppressor for the MPX other than Innovative Arms?

Current sale with the side folding brace with 8 inch barrel going for $1300 if anyone has been holding out. Cheapest I've seen these go for so far.

It really just comes down to what you want to do with it and how much $$ you want to spend. I bought a multi-cal suppressor and really should have just purchased a 9mm or .45 suppressor. I don't own 300 black and my can isn't recommended for 5.56 in a barrel shorter than 16" so using it on my SBR is a no go. I would look at how you plan on attaching it to your rifle. Is it going to be a permanent attachment, qd, etc. If its permanent get a fixed barrel adapter, thread it on and call it a day. I picked up a three lug mount muzzle break for mine plus the three lug mount adapter for the can and it fits my purpose. Aside from a first round pop my liberty mystic X does what I need it to do. I can easily take it apart and clean it and it is a mono-core baffle which makes user maintenance a breeze.

After doing a little shooting with some other folks who have standard MPX's with cans attached they all revel at how quiet mine is with the Innovative Arms set up. So the question is, do you want the quietest shooting MPX (even with 115 grain) or do you want to be able to put the can on other hosts?

Good shooting.

Excellent point and not one that I really considered. Seeing as how I originally thought I would use my can on other weapons led me down the path I chose. I may still look into them and then use the can I have on other weapons.

My first question would be what does it do that the MPX doesn't do that justifies it being $800 more expensive? I guess if you specifically want a 10mm that would do it, but apples to apples.....

No question there, itís expensive. I am a lover of the 10mm if it is loaded correctly. Underwood loads their 10mm the way it was meant to be loaded. Example:

135 Grs Hollow Point
Muzzle Velocity:1600 fps
Muzzle Energy: 767 ft. lbs.

180gr Hollow Point
Muzzle:1300 fps
Energy: 676

Of course shot placement is always more important than caliber selection. I have an article from a ER Doc that talks about people surviving 9mm wounds to the torso, but cites the effectiveness of larger bore pistol calibers; 10mm being mentioned by name. The above velocities are from a Glock 20, youíre going to achieve some impressive ballistics with a longer 8Ē barrel. But again, Iím simply a 10mm fanboy. Also, it takes Glock 20/29 magazines. I carry the 29 off duty, handy that my magazines will work with this platform.

Got it. So mostly the fact that it's available in 10mm. I can understand that if you like alternate calibers other than 9mm.
