Silencerco Maxim 9mm
- Price: $1,522
Let’s be honest, there’s something deeply sexy about suppressed weapons. Yes, we like the sound of gunfire, but that muffled sound is pretty cool.
But they look terrible and they totally unbalance your weapon. Unless you go for the Silencerco 9mm, which comes with the silencer built-in and pretty much comes with the same footprint as a standard pistol.
OK, it’s not quite a standard length, but at 10.75 inches long then it just about works as a sidearm. You’ll have to make compromises, but it will fit a waist holster and you really cannot say that for a standard threaded gun and an aftermarket suppressor.
So, yes, you could just about carry this if you live in one of the 42 States where suppressors are legal.
It looks like something you’d find in a video game, but basically this gun is a heavily modified Glock 17. That means you get the legendary reliability, as most of the internals are OEM Glock parts.
You also get custom stippling, a serrated slide and a noise reduction to 137.1dB for typical 115gr ammo.
Silencers Don’t Sound Like The Movies
Yeah, let’s not get totally carried away. Silencers don’t sound the way they do in the movies and you know that. So, there’s no point going on about it here.
Simply put, they reduce the noise and mean you can manage long sessions at the range and shoot in the open without ear defenders if you really want to.
It weighs in at 2.32lb, so this is no flyweight. But then everything in life comes at a cost and with a suppressor, that tends to be weight.
You do get 17+1 rounds and when you look at the custom work on this gun, then the sticker price really isn’t that bad. You pay more for an Agency Arms Glock and then you’ll have to spend upwards of $700 on the silencer afterwards.
It’s ready for an RMR
So, if you really want a suppressed 9mm, then this might be the one to go for.
Other 9mm Pistols to Consider
You could just buy a 9mm pistol and a suppressor. Or forget about the suppressor entirely. I mean you’re not ACTUALLY an assassin, are you?
