    Cool SilencerCo Maxim 9 about to be released...

    https://www.reddit.com/r/GunPorn/com...uppressed_9mm/

    Apparently the poster of the photograph is an employee of SilencerCo...

    I cannot speak to specifics, just know that the bulk of the wait is over. We refuse to release a pistol that is just "okay". This is not a novelty to us. This gun needs to be something that an individual can trust their life with. It needs to hold up to abuse, mistreatment, weather and everything else that the world can throw at it. We see this gun as the next evolution in firearms. It represents the first step in that evolution.
    From my own personal use, I can say that this gun is just as durable, if not more so than any other pistol I have owned.

    Depth of field could of been a little wider allowing the muzzle to be in focus, as well as the trigger. Just me. Sometimes a narrow depth of field draws attention to a specific part of the product, but in this case I would have kept the whole gun in focus.

    OOPS, this is a gun forum. Never mind.
    There are only 3 colors, 10 digits, and 7 notes; it's how we arrange them that is important.

    Why does that gun look like they should sharpen it into a hatchet? Once the rounds are expended, hack hack away!

    Hah true - yeah, it's not the world's best photo. But I think it's more in the context of a unofficial sneak preview. If you notice in the thread, no one is critiquing the photo, everyone is all up in arms over the gun - despite the fact the subreddit is focused on the photography.

    Interesting concept but it doesn't excite me. Maybe if the technology improves to reduce size/footprint.

    He spent an hour setting up the photo and used some high dollar 24-70 lens to take a pic of a gun hardly anyone will buy.
    What do they think annual sales will be? A couple thousand? Not like everyone is gonna run out to buy the new canned gun and pay the addtl $200 to register it. The cost of the gun itself will probably be close to $1000 as well. And don't forget the MANY month long wait to take your new pistol home.

    Novelty.

    Possible collectors item.....

    30 years from now.

    Gotta start somewhere.

    Also, they are actively campaigning for the Hearing Protection Act. If (hopefully when) the Act passes, SilencerCo will have the first practical integrally-suppressed pistol on the market, already being distributed and sold. I plan on buying one regardless, but if the Act passes, I'll hurry the heck up on that.

    Based on the Maxim alone, I hope it passes. Something rubs me the wrong way about registration, and doubly so for a fancy pistol.

    Think about it this way too. Look at Tesla...

    The first Tesla, the "Roadster" was a low-production vehicle that was basically a Lotus Elise with electric guts. A few people bought it, despite the price tag and the relative impracticality of it, i.e. there were no Supercharger stations in place yet, etc. That helped finance the Model S, which made Tesla a household name, along with the rollout of Tesla's infrastructure. All that in less than a decade. Now we have the Model X, which is basically a semi-self-aware computer on wheels. And the 3 comes out in a year or two...

    Also, each Tesla has been progressively cheaper. The Roadster was like $150K or more. The S was like $110K or so depending on the options. The X is under $100K depending on options. The 3 will be sub-$40K. Each generation has reached more and more people.

    The Maxim is gonna probably clock in around $1500 or so before the tax. The poster did say "it'll be less than the cost of a good pistol and a can...". I also imagine SilencerCo might do something crazy like a "Damn the Man" sale where they cover the cost of the stamp for you. I think AAC did that once.

    Nonetheless, this is the first one. Subsequent revisions will be cheaper. I expect a sub-$1000 Maxim within two or three years. Less if the HPA passes. I'm hoping ten years from now every major pistol maker has an integrally-suppressed offering.

    If you want a truly refined integrally-suppressed firearm, I would say yes, waiting a little would be the key.

    Though it seems SilencerCo is determined to make a real winner out of the gate. They could have released a production version of the mishmash S&W frankengun prototype if they wanted. But then they'd be beholden to S&W for the receivers which could cause issues down the line.

    And waiting and refining has paid off. The political climate is much more favorable for this gun. Had they kicked it out earlier it would just been a novelty item.
