“Never before has a company successfully managed to produce a handgun with an integral silencer that is holsterable and hearing safe with any factory ammunition,” SilencerCo’s press release boasts [after the jump]. “This product is primed to take the industry by storm.” Yes, well, they would say that, wouldn’t they? “While this isn’t a huge surprise,” TTAG’s Nick Leghorn opined at its intro, “it’s certainly intriguing.” There’s a big gap between “intriguing” and “best seller.” A lot of that depends on . . .
the amount of noise generated (I have tinnitus thanks to a “hearing safe” suppressed Remington 700), consumer willingness to jump through the hoops to get an NFA tax stamp and the firearm’s price (which remains unspecified). There’s also the fact that the SilencerCo Maxim 9 is maximum ugly. And minimally compatible with discreet open carry – despite the company’s claims of holsterability. So, over to you, our Armed Intelligentsia. Would you buy one of these? At what price?
The biggest announcement at SilencerCo’s recent Maxim Vice event was the reveal of the Maxim 9 – an integrally suppressed 9mm pistol.
Never before has a company successfully managed to produce a handgun with an integral silencer that is holsterable and hearing safe with any factory ammunition.
This product is primed to take the industry by storm, and we’re proud to to show it to you – our loyal SilencerCo supporters – first.
We’re keeping exact product details under wraps since it is still in the final design stages, but one thing is certain – the Maxim 9 will forever change the way people think about firearms when they realize that there is no longer any reason guns have to be loud.
Founded in West Valley, Utah in 2008, SilencerCo started with a belief in the fundamental premise that firearms don’t have to be loud and has now become the market leader in sound suppressors, muzzle devices and related products. By investing in innovation, customer service, organic manufacturing, advocacy, education and talent, SilencerCo is now focused on making firearms hearing-safe for all hunting and shooting applications, introducing products that have never been made before, and making the buying experience a better one.
