First Look: Gemtech Lunar 9
Gemtech Suppressors is introducing a new, modular 9 mm suppressor, the Gemtech Lunar 9. The Gemtech Lunar 9 provides the exceptional sound suppression you’ve come to expect from Gemtech, along with the added flexibility of a dual configuration tube. The innovative tube design of the Lunar 9 allows it to be quickly converted from a 7-inch suppressor to a shorter 4.7-inch suppressor, simply by unscrewing the tube extension. The shorter tube length is perfect for situations when size is paramount, while the longer tube allows you to effectively suppress the noise of rounds up to subsonic .300 BLK. The new suppressor is compatible with a variety of current pistols, carbines and rifles with threaded barrels, chambered in everything from 9 mm to subsonic .300 BLK.
Lane Tobiassen, President, said, “There are a growing number of manufacturers introducing firearms with threaded barrels designed to support the attachment of a suppressor. Threaded barrel pistols and pistol caliber carbines have become popular options for use with suppressors, and we have designed a high-quality, innovative, reliable, versatile suppressor that offers great sound reduction.”
The dual-configuration Lunar 9 comes complete with one ½x28 piston. Both size configurations of the Gemtech Lunar 9 suppressor offer significant sound reduction when using subsonic 9 mm and subsonic .300 BLK ammunition. Built from 7075 aluminum with a 17-4 stainless steel blast baffle for increased durability, the Gemtech Lunar 9 is compatible with all Gemtech GM-9/Multimount mounting accessories, allowing it to be used on a wide range of host firearms. Disassembly is quick and easy, and the aluminum baffles on the suppressor feature a hard-coat anodized finish for added durability and easier cleaning.
The Gemtech Lunar 9 has an MSRP of $616, and more information is available at gemtech.com.
