SHOT Show 2017: Hands on with SilencerCo’s Maxim 9

by The Firearm Blog with TFB Staff |  |  Published on February 1, 2017

One of the issues I had with the version above was the inability to attach a light/laser or some sort of optic.

Well, those issues have been addressed. Underneath the massive front end are three KeyMod holes for attaching a small picatinny rail. Now you can attach any weapon light you so desire.

My favorite change is the inclusion of am RMR cut into the top of the silencer. Since the slide is only the portion at the chamber, everything in front of the ejection port does not move. So that means an RMR mounted atop of the Maxim 9 will act like a frame mounted optic.

One feature I did not expect was the removable section akin to the SilencerCo Salvo12 or Micro Osprey. This modularity allows you to shorten the overall length of the pistol with the compromise of decreased sound reduction. I am curious if you could then go in the opposite direction and increase the length by adding more sections and make the Maxim 9 even quieter?

If you look closely, you will notice the Maxim 9 grip and frame has a distinct texture. I have been told, by SilencerCo, that it is actually Morse Code. Anyone want to try their hand at decoding it?
