The 5 Handguns I Didn’t Buy In 2018 Part 3
Number 3. SilencerCo Maxim 9
While the SilencerCo Maxim 9 is extremely innovative and a marvel of cool engineering, it is wholly impractical. That is I guess, unless you’re going to shoot a futuristic sci-fi thriller and need a pre-made prop gun that requires zero alterations to make it look unnatural.
I see this gun a nothing more than a novelty and I’m guessing that SilencerCo probably intended it as such. There is nothing practical about it. As a case study, it is fascinating.
The Maxim’s redeeming feature is that creative engineering is alive and well. It’s comforting to know there are companies out there who are trying to break to mold.
