    FNP 45 tactical NOT cycling with suppressor

    I took my FNP 45 tactical to the range for its first couple of outings. I have a Gem-Tech SOS 45 suppressor that fits nicely on the threaded barrel. When firing the pistol with the suppressor attached, the next round in the magazine always fails to feed. Most of the time, the cartridge is not ejected, sometimes it will stove pipe, but it usually does not cycle the slide far enough for that to occur. I've used Blazer FMJ, Fiocchi FMJ and some +P ammunition. All ammunition resulted in the same failure to cycle. Does anyone else run a FNP 45 tactical with a Gem-Tech SOS 45? If so, do you have any cycling issues? Does anyone with another brand of suppressor have cycling issues?

    I did a quick search of the forum and did not see this issue in the search results.

    If the silencer in question does NOT have a Nielsen device (a spring loaded piston) then your firearm will not cycle properly.

    It would appear that this particular silencer does not have a piston to aid in the cycling of the slide.

    Get AAC or Silencerco.

    +1 A Nielson device is needed to properly cycle most center fire semi auto pistols.
