Surefire Ryder 9Ti Cleaning

Back in 2019 I built a 9MM Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC). The lower was a Palmetto State Armory put together with a pistol brace and parts kit from a previous build. With this build, I added a Timney single-stage AR PCC Trigger with a complete upper with 5" barrel from Macon Armory.

I knew going in that I wanted it to be suppressed, so started digging even before this was completed and eventually settled on the Surefire Ryder 9Ti.

If you've never filled out the paperwork for a NFA item, I highly recommend Atlantic Outdoors in Stokesdale. Everyone in that shop is awesome to deal with and they will help you make sure all is in order before sending off to the ATF.

Back at the ranch...

The Surefire Ryder 9Ti is the older model to Ryder 9Ti2. Both models are full-auto rated, user maintainable, have a titanium housing and six stainless steel baffles. The newer model is about an ounce heavier, but virtually the same otherwise.

  • Weight: 9.5oz

  • Length: 7.6"

  • Diameter: 1.25"

  • Thread Pitch: 1/2x28

  • Warranty: Lifetime

Remove the suppressor from your firearm and locate your disassembly tool that it came with.

Insert it into the rear cap and rotate counter-clockwise to remove the cap, piston spring and piston.

Note that if you plan to attach this to any firearm that has a fixed barrel, you'll need the fixed barrel adapter shown below. Otherwise, you're good out of the box.

Insert the tool into the front plate and unscrew, again counter-clockwise. If yours was like mine, only baffle #1 will come out with the cap. That's ok, this is why the baffle removal tool was also included.

You may need to use a little force to get the baffles out if they do not come out on their own. This is ok. I was a little apprehensive the first time I had to push them out and had to use more pressure than I thought. They only come out one way, so...

Once you get the baffles out, set them out in order just to keep things organized. It'll make it a tad easier if you have to stop and come back later.

I used an AR carbon scraper tool to clean, but you may have a better solution LET ME KNOW in the comments below.

All baffles except #1 are numbered, that way when you reassemble you'll know where they all go.

Grab your disassembly tool and start stacking the front cap and baffles on it in prep to reinsert into the housing. Pay close attention to the notch in each baffle and that it correctly lines-up with one above & below as it's easy for them to get moved.

Once you have them all lined up and in place, reinsert into the housing and screw the front cap back on.

Ensure you screw the front cap in 100%. It may look deceiving, but the front cap is slightly inset into the housing, so once screwed in you should hear nothing if you shake it.

Wipe down the piston and reassemble with the end cap and screw this back into the housing. You should not need the disassembly tool, this should be hand tight only.

That's all there is to it. Leave a comment below if this was helpful or if you have any cleaning suggestions for carbon buildup.
