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.
