SilcencerCo’s innovative Maxim 9 is starting to hit dealer shelves. The much-touted integrally suppressed pistol kept a voracious public waiting anxiously for over 18 months since it’s initial announcement.
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.
