The Untold History of the Maxim Silencer

How could this be the “untold history” of the Maxim Silencer when someone’s telling it? I know: previously untold. But once anyone watches the video, that’s it. Told ya! In fact, this brace of AAC employees told this untold history some five years ago. (Does untold ever get old?) The most amazing bit: Maxim sent the silencer through the mail. Would that we had such “easy access” to guns and silencers. These days, Hell would be cold.

    Shame to ruin a reasonably attractive girl that way, with all those tats and huge gauges that will turn her earlobes into floppy horror shows unless she wears them the rest of her life. Those tats won’t look half as pretty as her skin ages, and they’re all over public skin, so she can’t ever really be “respectable.” Damn shame.

    1. avatar Paul says:

      Yeah, well somehow I don’t think she really thought that far ahead when getting “painted”.

    2. avatar Nynemillameetuh says:

      If she ruins her looks any more she might end up on a $20 bill sometime. Yikes!

      1. avatar O-Hebi says:

        Not funny.

    3. avatar surlycmd says:

      Shame for her to exercise her own free will and get those tattoos and huge gauges. Isn’t she concerned about what others will think of her decisions?

      1. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

        It’s not a matter of free will, in my opinion, so much as limiting yourself in life. There are certain professions which you will not be taken seriously, if at all.

        Free will does not mean freedom from consequence.

        1. avatar surlycmd says:

          Yes, there are consequences to the decisions we make. Full disclosure; I am retired Navy and work part time in an auto parts store. I have both arms covered in tattoos down to the wrists. I stopped there for the reasons cited in other comments. My choice. I’m not a fan of neck tattoos or over the top body modifications. I simply do not see a need to shame or publicly deride someone who made those choices for themselves.

        2. avatar neiowa says:

          There is NO PROFESSION that you will be taken seriously with that crap. All that is missing is a tat on the forehead “moron”.

          I’ll, if feeling generous, allow a young dumbass to go get a haircut and take the piercing (max of one) out of ear (only) and return for a do over on job interview. She is just a point and laugh. Dang shame she thinks so little of herself and Western civilization (“Grandma, why do your ears hang low?”)

        3. avatar 16V says:

          neiowa, C’mon man. There’s a bunch of professions where you will be taken even more seriously if you have full sleeves, at the minimum.

          Car customizer, bike customizer, tattoo artist, high-end bartender, artist, musician, seriously the list includes pretty much anything to do with being creative.

          No, you’ll never be a Fortune 500 CEO, but I’ve never met one of them who actually aspires to it.

          Just sayin’…

        4. avatar HellofromIllinois says:

          Funny you should say there is no profession that would allow that. She seems to be employed right? Many firearms companies have no issues. My employer doesn’t care at all about my tattoos. In fact, when I asked about them during my orientation they laughed and said, “Wait till you see our graphic designer.” I’ve had college professors with full sleeves, neck tattoos, gauges, piercings etc. The world is a lot more open and free these days, and we should all embrace that.

          FWIW, I think she looks great.

      2. avatar James in AZ says:

        Nobody took a problem to her freedom to do those.

        It’s just plain pathetic to harm yourself so others can feel good looking, or that you need such “enhancements” to get some extra confidence or self-enjoyment.

        You remind me of a revolver guy who again and again emphasized it was his “right” to pick a revolver over an autoloader, all while we were just discussing the techinical stuff.

      3. avatar Anonymous says:

        She is if she wants to get a job. I think we all know plenty of executives and office personnel that have gauges and tats on their face right???

        Come on surly, we just want the best for these people. After all – she did have the free will to eliminate any possibilities for one of these professions. Be honest. Looks matter.

        1. avatar 16V says:

          Looks matter – up to a point. She’s a female, and an attractive one. She seems to have a brain, so while she may not come in the front door of many Fortune 500s, if she has skills, she would have no problem in IT, or research.

          Not to mention if she were to go to SF or somewhere, she could run for mayor and stand a chance. I remember people with full sleeves and gauges back in the ’90s. They were in a variety of IT jobs, including product management. Also, the person who is fully-tatted is generally speaking not really desirous of a corner office. Just sayin’…

        2. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

          In some arenas, looks do not matter, in others, looks certainly matter.

          I would not want a tatted out, pierced up, and crazy haired lawyer representing me in court, looking down at me from an operating table, or doing my taxes. But, cooking my food, working on truck, or helping me pick out a new gun – no problem.

        3. avatar surlycmd says:

          “Come on surly, we just want the best for these people.”

          Interesting choice of words. Made me chuckle, thanks.

        4. avatar 16V says:

          RockOn, I don’t disagree with you in the least. All I’m saying is that there are places and actual professions (that pay real money and have benes and a retirement plan) that could give a rat’s ass what he/she looks like – as long as they can do the job.

        5. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

          16V: we will have to just agree to disagree then.

          I think some times people stereotype certain groups, and other times, I think certain groups stereotype themselves.

          I have lots of friends with tats. Hell, my wife and I both have them, but ours are easily covered up. We just do not want to be pigeonholed based on ink. I am not saying that the world should be this way, I am just saying the world IS this way. YMMV.

        6. avatar 16V says:

          RockOn, I don’t believe we actually disagree. I’m just saying that there are places for them, and that they have no desire to be your VP of Finance…

    4. avatar Alphonse says:

      Meh, I don’t guess she’s missing out on anything important. She’s respectable because she’s minding her own business: I mean she’s pro-gun at a young age, despite not being a traditional rural person, and not a criminal or anything like that apparently. Priorities.

    5. avatar HeySpanky says:

      Meh. I don’t think the mods make her less attractive. Then again, I have my personal bias, and find some tats and piercings to increase attractiveness. So…
      11/10 would bang.

    6. avatar Ironhorse says:

      Screw your “respectable”.

    7. avatar Dev says:

      Yeah, the nerve of her to express her freedom and individuality by doing something that a large portion of society deems offensive. I bet she open carries too!

      1. avatar MG says:

        Rather than seeking to distinguish herself as an individual through real achievement or effort, she chose the shallow attention-grabbing shortcut of body modding. The look generally makes me think ‘desperate for attention’ whenever I see it. IMHO, what it suggests about her is not a positive thing.

        Perhaps she thinks it will allow her to claim the mantle of ‘oppressed minority’, which is not generally not made available to attractive young white women. Being oppressed is all the rage these days, after all. Give it time. “Tattooed Lives Matter” coming to a unauthorized roadblock near you.

    8. avatar Felix says:

      Even more a shame that you and others think it any of your business.

      1. avatar James in AZ says:

        So it’s your business to say it’s not his business?

        Saying this on a forum open to public? Seriously? Desperate so much?

        Lame

        1. avatar Frank in VA says:

          Well, it’s not my business to say it’s not your business to say it’s not his business to say it’s not our business.

          So I won’t say it. I don’t like to do business on weekends anyway.

        2. avatar Felix says:

          I see. To respond to a gun-carrying criminal with your own gun is ok.

          To respond to a busybody nanny by calling him a busybody is not ok.

          Sometimes you gotta use your brain a little.

          Life. It’s funny.

    9. avatar Zippy2003 says:

      Uhm….

      Replace “tattoo” with “firearm.”

      Gee..thanks guys. Now we’re acting like a bunch of anti gun liberals who are demanding our own safe spaces!

      Great job..slow clap…

      She has just as much right to choose how she presents herself in public as we do. We don’t hurt anyone when we open carry, conceal carry or show our support for shooting sports…yet you folks want to get all “PC” about her appearance.

      God Lord… with all these comments, is this some commie rag I’m reading or is this supposed to be a gun blog?

      All I hear are a bunch of cry babies demanding their safe space because a girl has too many tattoos and looks different…

      And maybe we need some more risk takers and tattooed folks in charge of Fortune 500 companies. Maybe they’d have the balls to actually invest in their companies and keep jobs in Murica!

      Seriously, you folks are strange. It’s 2016 for goodness sake. Get with the times. If you don’t like the tattoos, fine. But never go full retard.

          You’re assigning decks of race cards to folks and you can’t keep us seperated in your head? You’re a whole lot more impressive in your own mind than in this thread.

    They kept it quiet.

  6. avatar Dustin says:

    Tattoos are part of the modern world, I tend to judge people by their actions. Pretty low to even post coments like these, let’s insult this lady that’s on our side.

    1. avatar Alphonse says:

      Exactly. It’s not classy and it’s a liability to the pro-gun cause, people being unable or unwilling to put aside their personal stuff.

      1. avatar Anonymous says:

        We’re just being honest. What’s those earlobes going to look like at age 65?

        Like a new car, our bodies are a machine. An organic machine, that like a car, must be properly taken care of to last.

        1. avatar James in AZ says:

          Stop man just stop…

          They aint gonna admit the difference between “could” and “should”, and any discussion on the “should” would be taken as an assault on the “could”

        2. avatar 16V says:

          At 65? Who cares? Christie Brinkley is most definitely not what the majority of 60+ year olds look like.

  7. avatar anaxis says:

    That girl looks like my ex-wife; same name, even. Dollars to donuts she’s an SG too. Giggity giggity.

      “Dollars to donuts she’s an SG too.”

      SG? Sensual Goddess?

      1. avatar Gabe says:

        He means Suicide Girl, look it up.

        That chick is cute. The ink brings her from a 5 to a solid 8 on my scale. I agree about the plugs but the ink is hot. Thank God we’re in America.

  8. avatar Dustin says:

    I know plenty of heavily tattooed people with great jobs. Guess their bosses were born in this last half century.

  9. avatar Tim says:

    They hypocrisy is so strong with the gun crowd. We don’t want people judging firearms based on their look and sure get fired up when someone lumps us all into a category or stereotype. However, some of you rode in on your condescending high horses and start critiquing a girl for NO REASON. Literally, 100% unsolicited judgement from some tongue in cheek prick(s) who think that passing their veiled insults off as “wisdom” make it okay. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

    1. avatar Dustin says:

      Well said.

    2. avatar Cloudbuster says:

      If my insult was veiled, I apologize. It should have been plain to see.

      If my words shame just one young girl into not getting tatted up, it was worth it.

      1. avatar Alphonse says:

        Yeah, but maybe your words will make it seem cooler and encourage someone to get tats.

    3. avatar Jordan says:

      Couldn’t agree more. The girl has done nothing wrong by getting tats, piercings, and earlobe holes. She has clearly been able to find gainful employment as well. And did these commenters ever stop to consider that in some professions you will find the majority of people have stuff like that (tat artist for one). I’m so glad we aren’t living in the 1950’s anymore.

    4. avatar Anonymous says:

      They hypocrisy is so strong with the gun crowd. We don’t want people judging firearms based on their look and sure get fired up when someone lumps us all into a category or stereotype.

      There is no hypocrisy here on this issue. I don’t care if people judge firearms based on how they look or not. In fact, I expect it. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion (based on their judgement). What I do care about is when people try to take things away from me – including my freedom to possess such rifles.

      However, some of you rode in on your condescending high horses and start critiquing a girl for NO REASON.

      There was really good reasons for our criticism. All of which, are based on our own judgments and opinions to which we are entitled.

      Literally, 100% unsolicited judgement from some tongue in cheek prick(s) who think that passing their veiled insults off as “wisdom” make it okay. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

      Yup. We are entitled to our opinions and our own judgements – then we get to talk about them and publish them. Welcome to the first amendment.

      What we can both agree on and what differs us from anti-gun people (a least me anyways), is I would never vote to take away your freedom for earnings, tattoos, or ear gauges, even though that I personally don’t agree with it.

      Live and let live.

    She works for a silencer company or atleast used too I don’t know if she stayed with ACC after they got bought.

    Better to see her than some gun bunny being paraded around. And look her up she’s good at what she does I doubt she’s unemployed

  12. avatar Ironhorse says:

    Why isn’t she wearing a dress, heels, pearls, and doing the dishes? Where is her husband? Shame on her!

    1. avatar Anonymous says:

      Why isn’t the guy tatted up with 27 facial rings, ear gauges, and a small little chain to connect it all?? Shame on him!

  13. avatar mike says:

    I really miss the old AAC. Mike Mers was awesome at making videos and sales pitches.

  14. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

    Maxim silencers were a pretty good design, especially given he didn’t have supercomputing capacity to model the performance with CFD, FEA and other packages.

  15. avatar Nate H. says:

    I think she’s hot. Probly got perky little tits covered in ink too. Mmm Mmm good.

  16. avatar Kevin j says:

    She’d be hot if it wasn’t for those ear things.

  17. avatar Swarf says:

    There would only be four comments in this thread if that were a guy in the video.

    Buncha assholes.

    1. avatar Alphonse says:

      Dude, you don’t understand, we’re just speaking honest truths for the girl’s own good. If she doesn’t mind her appearance, how’s she going to find a decent husband to support her and to have several children with, and to be a role model for the children?

        Happens all the time apparently. People are like – Oh Sh!t! I shouldn’t have done that!

        I know from experience. My brother has a big tattoo that he regrets. He doesn’t find the money required to remove it “worth it” so he just lives with it. He was young when he got them and has since grown out of it.
