The new Maxim 50 Muzzleloader from SilencerCo allows civilians to enjoy suppressed shooting in all suppressor legal states, without the hassle and wait time of purchasing a silencer.
The Maxim 50 is built on the base of a Traditions™ Vortek Strikerfire Muzzleloader. Muzzleloaders are not considered firearms by the BATFE, but instead antique firearms. Because of this, a moderator that is permanently affixed to a muzzleloader is not legally defined as a silencer, since it does not attach to a firearm. You can buy the Maxim 50 Muzzleloader on GunBroker.com.
SilencerCo expects the Maxim 50 to be a hit not only with the NFA-loving crowd, but also with hobbyists and hunters. In many states, muzzleloader hunting begins days (sometimes weeks) before standard rifle season, giving hunters using this platform an edge. But this edge does come with caveats – antique firearms are usually loud, have lots of recoil, and the shooter has to battle the thick cloud of black powder smoke billowing from the barrel as they try to see if their shot connected with their game. The Maxim 50 solves all of the issues experienced by muzzleloader shooters while also drastically reducing the resulting smoke by more than two-thirds, allowing hunters to see the location of their shot and track their game.
