Maxim Defense is introducing a new DSX-D Suppressor, with a three-piece MonoKore design that adds 7.25” to the muzzle of your rifle. The DSX-D is full-auto rated in all available calibers, but there is an 8.5” barrel restriction. It can be pinned to a 10.3” barrel to effect a 16” overall barrel length.

Maxim Defense @ TFB:

The DSX-D Suppressor is available in 5.56 or 7.62 with an MSRP of $1,295.00.

You can have any color you like as long as it’s either black, grey or FDE – combinations that I’m sure will please the potential customers.

Maxim Defense’s product announcement reads as follows:

The MSX suppressor line by Maxim Defense is specifically designed to minimize the increase in cyclic rate and gas blowback of a suppressed weapon system. Primary design features include the significant reduction of sound signature, decreasing flash signature, reduction of recoil and increase
in accuracy.

Duty built for the world’s most rigorous demands, this suppressor is designed to be the most robust and strongest suppressor in category. It has been repeatably tested with SOCOM tables across a variety of calibers and barrel lengths, down to 8.5” 5.56 NATO with M855 ball ammunition and has survived with no damage or significant changed in sound reduction.

• State-of-the-art MonoKore design.
• Simple 3-piece design.
• Military grade materials.
• Adds 7.25” to the muzzle.
• Purposefully built for each available caliber.
• Suppressor core has integrated carbon cutters for tube cleaning.
• Full auto rated in all available calibers, 8.5” barrel restriction.
• Can be pinned to a 10.3” barrel to effect a 16” overall barrel length.
• Ships with direct thread mount:
– 1⁄2-28 thread mount for 5.56.
– 5/8-24 thread mount for 7.62 and 6.5 calibers.
• Secondary retention feature for the suppressor tube.

• Increase reliability and longevity with host firearms due to low gas blow back and low gain in host weapon cyclic rate compared to other more traditional suppressor designs.
• Drops sound to well below hearing safe levels (specific reduction based on weapon configuration, ammunition, barrel length and atmospheric conditions). For example: average measurement per MILSTD-1474D of 134dB on an 10.3” AR-15 chambered in 5.56 measured at the shooter’s left ear.
• Decreases flash, decreases recoil, increases accuracy.
• Fully and easily serviceable.
• Disassembles with common tools

What do you think? The kind of hush-hush you’d like on your rifle?

    Anybody else see the irony of a 8.5” barrel restriction on the suppressors sold by a company that specializes in making guns with stupidly-short barrels?

      @Suppressed I might be misreading it, but I think it's just the full auto that's restricted. But I could be wrong.

    Pin and weld a $1295 suppressor?
