SHOT Show 2016: SilencerCo and the Maxim9

The Maxim9 is definitely a significant advancement of suppressor technology. I’ve covered it before – for a look at this pistol with an integrated suppressor, visit “The Maxim 9: Fight the Noise with SilencerCo” – but this is something different. This is a closer look at the R and D that went into the Maxim9.

Today at SHOT I was able to speak with founder and President of SilencerCo Jonathon Shults, a guy far more down-to-earth than you might expect and absolutely friendly. It didn’t take long for our conversation to wind around to the objects SilencerCo had chosen to decorate their booth’s back wall. Those objects were clearly components for the Maxim9, but their relevance proved far more interesting.

Each piece was numbered, and apparently the progression showed the step-by-step process it took SilencerCo to create the Maxim9. The very first step was a clear suppressor which was in itself fascinating, and it eventually progressed to an M9 frame with basic components mounted to it. It went on from there and although there was no time to go through it all one by one, the visual alone was quite something. And there, in the center, was the end result: the Maxim9 in all its glory.

Not many companies will give you a look at the entire process from start to finish, and I hope you find this as interesting as I did.

SilencerCo’s mission statement:

Born and bred in the land of the free, SilencerCo started life when two men in a garage machined, welded, and shaped their dreams into reality.
They had one core belief: Guns don’t have to be loud.

Now in its sixth year of existence, SilencerCo makes more silencers than anyone else in the market. Yet our secret is simple – we care.
We care about each silencer leaving our facility. We care about the shooters and their hearing. We care about our employees, and we care about our role in the American economy.

We’re shooters, too – and we know how hard it can be to find durable equipment that performs. Our silencers have been shot, stripped, torqued, and blasted – and we constantly search for ways to make them quieter, more durable, lighter, and shorter.

We set the bar high for quality and innovation – because in the end, that’s all that matters. We created the first non-round pistol silencer with the Osprey, we created the quietest and easiest cleaning rimfire silencer with the Sparrow, and now manufacture the only commercially-viable, fully-modular shotgun silencer in existence with the Salvo.
