Over a year and a half after its initial announcement, the SilencerCo Maxim 9 has finally hit dealers shelves. Back then, at a seemingly over-the-top launch event in Miami, a Crockett and Tubbs theme took media types out into international waters for some high-seas target practice. At least it wasn’t bearded hipsters shooting the new integrally suppressed gun in the Rocky Mountains. That’s reserved for the other product lines:
Relax and put your pitchforks down – I always take a moment to poke fun at the Brooklyn Redhook types enjoying their SilencerCo suppressors. It’s all in good fun.
At the time of the Maxim Vice debut, the initial Maxim 9 prototypes were built on a highly modified Smith & Wesson M&P frame and slide. The final version now features a proprietary frame and slide, but utilizes Glock magazines. The pistol also sports an optics plate for micro red dot mounting options.

If you are interested in picking one up, you should probably act fast – talking with several dealers it appears that the initial run is nearly sold out.
