SilencerCo has announced the release of the new integrally suppressed Maxim 50 muzzleloader, which hunters and shooters in most states will be able to purchase without regulation—meaning no tax stamp, no photographs and no fingerprinting.
Founded in a garage in West Valley City, Utah, in 2008, suppressor maker SilencerCo was launched when two friends—Josh Waldron and Jonathon Shults—decided they could make a better suppressor for a .22 rimfire handgun than what was already on the market. It worked—and the company has grown exponentially since that day. Here are 10 things you probably didn't know about SilencerCo.
Field Editor Brian McCombie's only complaint about the suppressed hunting rig he used earlier this season in Texas was that he had to give it back when the hunt was over.
Suppressors are often referred to as “cans” because they look like, well, a soda can on the end of a barrel. Note that “silencer” is really not the correct term; suppressors don’t actually silence anything. They merely reduce the audible sound emanating from the muzzle of a hunter’s rifle to differing degrees.
