One of the main concerns centered around the Maxim’s price-point; a uniquely designed pistol combined with a suppressor would naturally call for a high MSRP. My initial estimations crossed the $2K mark. However, silencer dealer Capitol Armory is getting a sneak peak at the newest version, and is insinuating that my figures were much higher than the actual consumer cost. In a Facebook post, Captiol Armory contends that “if you can afford a pistol and a new silencer, you will be able to afford the Maxim 9”.
Of course, prices on both of those items vary widely – are we talking Glock prices or H&K prices for the pistols? Not to mention that silencer prices have a a wide range of investment costs as well. On the flip side, the Maxim seems to sound and function very well. In a post on Instagram, Capitol Armory put the pre-release version through its paces.
Some highlights in bold:
This is too legit!!!!!! @silencerco Maxim 9 is the future of small arms armament!
Extremely easy shooter w less recoil than most suppressed pistols.
No MSRP available but if you can afford a handgun & a can.. Then you can afford the Maxim 9.
Accurate & easy to get back on target.
Didn’t get any blowback.
Takes oem & aftermarket glock mags.
Sights can be replaced with aftermarket glock sights.
Didn’t feel like a toy; felt like a duty pistol.
After 3 mags the front does get warm but I put it on top of my pant leg & didn’t have any issue w heat.
Won’t damage kydex holsters.
I expect “modular front” means that users might be able to change the length of the suppressor (like the SilencerCo Salvo) but it could also mean a railed front section for accessory mounting.
SilencerCo has been fairly quiet on the PR front for the past few months. If history holds true, I expect to hear an announcement or two in the not-so-distant future. One trumpeting the release of the Maxim 9, the other yet-to-be-determined silencer that will capture everyone’s attention. SilencerCo never seems to disappoint in the cool-factor department.
