SilencerCo Production Maxim 9 | NRA 17

At the American Suppressor Association Media Day, SilencerCo had an assortment of suppressed weapons.

I was drawn to the Maxim 9 pistols. I got a chance to check them out at Shot Show last January but those had 3D printed frames. Click here to see the pics and article.

Well at the ASA media day they brought out two production Maxim 9s. One configured short while the other has the extra baffles in the long configuration.

These frames are final production polymer molded.

When I shot the Maxim 9, I immediately noticed the short reset on the trigger. The trigger pull is a bit heavy at 5.5 lbs but the reset is very nice and short.

    Judge Dredd called, he wants his Lawgiver back.

      Exactly what I was thinking.

    Assuming it’d be reliable, I think I’d actually really like one without the suppressor. Sure, it’d be awful to holster, but I’d be in it for the fixed optic mount. Plus, it’d take glockmags, right?

    Something a bit like this (I don’t have access to Photoshop atm, so newbie skills will have to do):

      It seems awfully bulky still. Why not run a frame mounted optic? You could get the ALG Defense 6SM (6 Sec Mount) for your Glock.

        I was too lazy and busy to cut off the rest of the suppressor, tbh (should have been completing my thermofluids project instead of reading/editing photos to comment on news).

        Glocks are the Honda Civic of the gun world. Every tenth person on the block has one, and every fifth of those thinks they’re the greatest thing ever made (and half of those having never actually used another product). I don’t knock people at all for owning them, but ricing them out is just not something I’m interested in.

          Dude type R stickers and NOS is totally what they need. LOL

    Thanks for the info.
    Fixed barrel? Is it a standard blowback?

  • iksnilol

      Well, it’s a logarithmic scale, you see…
