SHOT Show 2017: SilencerCo Maxim 9 Pistol

posted on January 17, 2017

With an appearance that's straight out of a sci-fi movie, the Maxim 9 by SilencerCo, the worlds first integral suppressor semi-automatic pistol, is ready to launch for 2017. The 1:10" twist  4.38” fixed barrel is housed inside a flat-sided sound suppression system with a profile designed to take up the same amount of holster space as a standard duty size double stack 9 mm with an accessory rail mounted light module. A good deal of work has gone into the action and ergonomics of the whole pistol in order to ensure reliable operation and a comfortable shooting experience. Despite it's bulky appearance, the Maxim 9 is lightweight and handy.

This SilencerCo system ships with the rods and baffles needed to set up the pistol in either a long or compact configuration. The longer configuration will handle all 9 mm bullet weights and power levels (+P, +P+) while the shorter configuration is designed to operate with subsonic loads. This pistol is easy to disassemble for routine cleaning using a push-button take-down for access to the slide and action in addition to two screws which can be removed to access the sound suppressor. The Maxim9's price point is on par with that of a quality pistol and suppressor purchased separately. MSRP: $1,499
