New SilencerCo FPS Promo Vid Shows off Maxim9

    Maxim9. So much want.

    SilencerCo celebrate the launch the new Maxim 9 integrally suppressed pistol with a slick new video showing off the pistol’s versatility from a first person perspective.

    The video depicts some scenarios in which the integrally suppressed Maxim 9 comes into its own. These range from a homeowner defending his property to a father teaching his young daughter how to shoot. Josh Waldron, SilencerCo’s CEO, explained that the short film highlights some real world scenarios “where the user wouldn’t have the time or ability to put on hearing protection.”

    Shot from the first-person perspective using GoPros, the video literally puts us in the saddle at one point. When a cowboy riding through the desert encounters a rattlesnake – he quietly dispatches the snake with his Maxim 9, without startling his horse. Another sequence shows a driver attacked by a mob, when an attacker smashes his windscreen he pulls his Maxim 9 pistol and engages – in the confines of a car, with an unsuppressed pistol, this would be pretty unpleasant. The promo continues this theme depicting a resident opening fire on a home invader in a confined stairwell.

    In a press release accompanying the new video Waldron hinted that SilencerCo might soon be bringing more integrally suppressed firearms to the market saying “the Maxim 9 is just the beginning as we intend to make more integrally suppressed platforms so that all types of firearms can be more compact and quiet out of the box.” So we’ll probably be seeing integrally suppressed pistol caliber carbines, rifles and shotguns join the Maxim line sooner rather than later.

    The Maxim 9 is available from SilencerCo dealers now with an MSRP of $1,499 (plus $200 tax stamp).
