The MAXIM 9 is available as a green gas or CO2-powered gas blowback pistol. The magazines are constructed from aluminum alloy, lending to a noticeable weight difference compared to standard GBB magazines, allowing you to carry more ammo without weighing down your gear.

The KRYTAC Maxim 9 is constructed of a reinforced polymer frame with an anodized aluminum slide and baffles. The baffles are modular, allowing for the versatility of both a short configuration (240mm) and a long configuration (275mm). Under the baffles, there are three KeyMod cutouts where a short rail section can be mounted. The fixed barrel is threaded to accept a special version of the famed Acetech Bifrost airsoft tracer unit, designed specifically for the KRYTAC Maxim 9.

The KRYTAC Maxim 9 is also micro dot optics ready with provisions for KRYTAC’s new multi-footprint mounting plate, accommodating RMR, RMRcc, and RMS footprint optics. It can be fired in semi-auto or full-auto and is fed through a lightweight, aluminum, 24-round capacity magazine.

Ambidextrous switches allow the operator to maintain control of the MAXIM 9, regardless of dominant hand manipulation. A hidden selector switch is located inside the rear of the slide allowing the user to fire in either semi-auto or fully automatic.

“SilencerCo’s Maxim 9 was the world’s first integrally suppressed 9mm pistol that is holster-able and hearing safe with 9mm ammunition,” said SilencerCo Product Manager, Andrew Herbst. “It’s a unique product that bridges the gap between carrying a short and concealable pistol and staying hearing-safe. We are excited to now be able to share this innovative product with the airsoft community!”

The KRYTAC Maxim 9 is offered as the standard version, which is a short configuration, with either a green gas or CO2 magazine. Accessories sold separately include the Maxim 9 Tracer and Extended Baffles Kit, Multi-footprint Optics Plate, Holster, and short keymod rail section. The Maxim 9 Standard, Tracer and Extension Kit, Muti-footprint Optics Plate, and keymod rail section are scheduled for delivery by November 2022.

The MAXIM 9 is a faithful replica of its real-world counterpart, meaning it can also be configured between short and long, depending on the user’s preference.

The KRYTAC Maxim 9 Deployment Pack will consist of the standard configuration pistol, with one green gas and one CO2 magazine, including all Maxim 9 accessories in a custom carry case with foam for the Maxim 9 and all accessories. The MAXIM 9 Deployment Pack is scheduled for delivery by the end of 2022.

The Maxim 9 airsoft pistol from KRYTAC starts at $220, with the Deployment Pack starting at $479. The other accessories and modifications are available for an extra cost.
