SilencerCo Breaks Down the Maxim9 Process

DSCF3050

It’s not your typical SHOT Show new product post, but it’s interesting. A chat with SilencerCo and President Jonathon Shults at the company’s booth quickly found its way to addressing the booth’s walls – specifically, what was on them. There were a series of numbered components on the wall behind the main counter, and although it was clear those components had to do with the company’s latest accomplishment the Maxim9 there was more to it than just that. In fact, those components showed the process SilencerCo went through to reach the final product. There aren’t many companies out there willing to give their customers such an in-depth visual aid of their R and D process, and it was fascinating.

First up was a clear suppressor which progressed to an M9 frame with parts mounted on it, and so on. It was a fascinating visual list and one I’d like to share with you. SilencerCo has only been around since 2008 but they’d made quite a mark on the industry in a short time. The Maxim9 is only one of their accomplishments, but it’s certainly a
fantastic one.

SilencerCo’s mission statement:

Born and bred in the land of the free, SilencerCo started life when two men in a garage machined, welded, and shaped their dreams into reality.
They had one core belief: Guns don’t have to be loud.

Now in its sixth year of existence, SilencerCo makes more silencers than anyone else in the market. Yet our secret is simple – we care.
We care about each silencer leaving our facility. We care about the shooters and their hearing. We care about our employees, and we care about our role in the American economy.

We’re shooters, too – and we know how hard it can be to find durable equipment that performs. Our silencers have been shot, stripped, torqued, and blasted – and we constantly search for ways to make them quieter, more durable, lighter, and shorter.

We set the bar high for quality and innovation – because in the end, that’s all that matters. We created the first non-round pistol silencer with the Osprey, we created the quietest and easiest cleaning rimfire silencer with the Sparrow, and now manufacture the only commercially-viable, fully-modular shotgun silencer in existence with the Salvo.

    Can we have hi-res photos of the components of the prototypes on the wall? just to guess how the action locks/delays…

  • LV-426

    I think we need some smaller pics here.

      I agree, entirely too much detail in the included pics. No need for all that

  • Silencerco has a contest where you could get a maxim 9. One of the first of the production run. Just got to be eligible meaning be US citizen with no record, live in a state where you can have it and pay all the associated fees.
