As I keep reading on this suppressor stuff, seems like the K-baffle does a better job of keeping things quiet, but after so many rounds cannot be taken apart for cleaning. Also, seems like a monolithic would be less work to machine.

I'm just learning about suppressors, and am not sure if my perceptions are correct. What are the pros/cons of monolithic vs. k-baffle.

I have both, the K is a little longer but makes less noise.

You can also make K baffles with only a lathe, Most mono cans need a lathe and a mill.

Mono cans usually have more baffles to make up for inefficiency how ever the quietest .22 can on the market uses 11 k baffles.

the element has 11 baffles in it? it looks way too short for that. 60 degree K baffles end up being around .6" long minimum, which would be 6.6" of baffle stack for 11 baffles, and the element is only 5.25" overall.

The Element has 7 baffles, an outer tube, and 2 end caps.

I'm also wondering, would K baffles be the best for other pistol calibers?

Have heard of some .45 suppressors made with K baffles.

My SP1 suppressors are a monocore design, and I have shot them next to several K baffle cans from other makers. The results sound the same. I like the mono for simplicity and easy maintenance.
