SilencerCo – Silencing Myths: Video Game Misconceptions

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

In this video, SilencerCo addresses some common misconceptions about how effective suppressors truly are at reducing sound report, based on their oftentimes Hollywood-esque portrayal in modern video games.

SHOT Show – Industry Day At The Range – SilencerCo Maxim 9

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

Admin says they should have called it the 'Lawgiver'

SilencerCo brought along the latest iteration of the Maxim 9 to their booth at Industry Day at the Range. The original Maxim 9 was built upon the Smith & Wesson M&P, more-or-less due to “[SilencerCo] having a lot of them sitting around”. This new Maxim 9 is, by comparison, a SilencerCo design, albeit in a prototype form. This is partially apparent from the 3D printed lower frame, and because of it being a prototype, none of the attendees were allowed to test fire it; a live fire demonstration by a SilencerCo employee was made, however, and we’ll upload footage from that for the readership soon.

Getting back to the pistol itself, it sports a number of impressive changes and upgrades from the initial prototype. First, it now utilizes Glock 17 magazines, which is great for obvious reasons. Adding on to the Glock compatibility, the irons are designed to be replaceable with any Glock-compatible sights. Additionally, it sports a 3.5″ barrel, a quick-action/safe-action-style trigger, the slide catch/stop/release is ambidextrous, and SilencerCo told us they plan to make the mag release ambi as well.

Adding to the changes, the Maxim 9 now features removable baffles much like the Salvo 12 and Osprey Micro, which allows users to shorten the overall profile of the Maxim 9. SilencerCo also told us they are making further refinements to the design, including the development of a method to allow for the mounting of a light and/or laser.

We heard the Maxim 9 may be available as soon as quarter 4 this year, so be on the lookout for more info as it becomes available.

SilencerCo – Maxim Vice

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

SilencerCo recently released this 80s-inspired pseudo-parody of Miami Vice which shows off their new Maxim 9 integrally suppressed pistol. It’s a real steel gun, but I wouldn’t be shocked if a unique design like that ends up with an airsoft version sometime in the future.

SilencerCo: The Wizard’s Staff

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

The Wizard Staff has a unique CTA baffle stack consisting of 44 polished Mithril baffles designed for an infinite dB reduction of sound. The 36 inches of soundless magic is easily disassembled by even the most novice necromancer to provide full user serviceability. The ageless construction of rare and exotic materials makes the Wizard Staff indestructible. The eternal warranty ensures the Wizard Staff will last as long as any immortal being wielding this impressive firearm silencer.

Sounds like a helluva great .22 suppressor. Too bad the waiting period for a 200 Sliver Sheckel tax stamp has gone up to over a year ever since the Bureau of Destructive Magical Devices has replaced their original Owl-based filing system with one staffed entirely by magical shell-less turtles; you know some hippy-ass druid in high office is getting a nice kickback for that bit of “infrastructure improvement”…

Silencerco 5.56 Saker

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

The Silencerco 5.56 Saker, which was introduced at last year’s SHOT Show, is in full production and will soon be available for purchase in stores. The Saker features key innovations that separate it from current suppressors offered by other companies. This includes the Multiple Accessory Attachment Device (MAAD), which is an interchangeable centerfire rifle mounting platform that allows for the user to attach the Saker, or other muzzle accessories, to their choice of many flash hiders and other mounts. Also of note is the Hoplon blast baffle, which deflects and cuts down on baffel erosion up to 90% using “”new to silencer design” materials, strategic reinforcements and improved geometry to achieve incomparable strength, longevity and repeatable accuracy.”

Silencerco has just announced the launch of SuperiorSilence.com, where customers can currently shop for Silencerco, ‘Silencers Are Legal’, and SWR products.
