From the NRA floor: SilencerCo’s Maxim 9
Seen on the floor of the NRA show, it grabbed my attention because it looks like Robocop’s gun. The SilencerCo Maxim 9:
It will be an integrally suppressed 9mm handgun. And it will take Glock magazines. The concept is interesting. Here’s a pic I snapped of a diagram of the internal baffles:
It was heavy and the grip was very thick. The guy working the booth told me they’ve already gotten the weight down and thinned the grip. It has a couple of bolts on the front so that you can remove the baffles for cleaning. They anticipate it to ship by the end of the year, with a retail at about the $1,500 mark. Even if this thing winds up being vaporware, they’ll make a mint selling it as a movie prop. Speaking of, at the show, they had the Maxim 9 photoshopped into a bunch of classic movie scenes for t-shirts (Pulp Fiction, Dirty Harry and others). I decided to snag the Deadpool shirt before they got a cease and desist.
