Innovation isn’t a word you hear a lot in the firearms industry, especially in the last eight years or so. Gun companies didn’t have to innovate because gun sales were on the rise. Washington pushed for unfriendly gun legislation and 2nd Amendment supporters clamored to fill their safes before it was too late. Pile on major events like terror attacks and school shootings, and you’ve got a recipe for a panic buy. Firearms manufacturing shops popped up like prairie dogs. All they had to do was hit the print button, wait for AR parts to pop out, and take their money to the bank. Since the last election, the new normal isn’t what it used to be. Now, only companies like SilencerCo who spent money on innovation are going to reap the benefits.

The steep price tag may scare off a few folks at first, but logic behind this design can’t be denied. This is sure to be a winner. Home defense and law enforcement applications are endless.

“Regardless of which configuration you use, the Maxim 9 represents one of the greatest strides made in both pistol and suppressor technology. No more choosing between keeping your pistol as short as possible and enduring deafening sound or adding a silencer and dealing with the added length and weight. Now, you can have the best of all worlds with the Maxim 9.”

As of now, there’s no sign that supply won’t be able to keep up with demand, but you can bet that if you don’t already have a Maxim 9 reserved, you may have trouble bringing one home right away.

  1. I was lucky enough to shoot the Maxim 9 this weekend. It’s light, easy to shoot and I was surprised to see the weight and length of the barrel did NOT cause the end of the pistol to always dip down. Not even a little. The suppressor can be shortened but the shot sound is slightly increased when you do this. All in all I would buy one. One last issue, the actual size of the barrel area will no doubt be a challenge to find the perfect fit holster.

  2. In my opinion, while innovative, it is still a novelty to those that have 2000 to spend on a new toy. Until the NFA nonsense concerning suppressors is done away with allowowing competition to bring suppressor prices down and making them more affordable for the “common” person, they will remain a novelty. Only my opinion, could be wrong, but I won’t be paying 2000 for all the hassle.
