SilencerCo – Jason Schauble to President

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

I guess the cat is out of the bag. Jason Schauble has assumed the role of President at SilencerCo.  

If you’re unfamiliar with his name, he’s a former Marine, former Remington (AAC) executive and former CEO at TrackingPoint.  Lately, he’s been the Chief Revenue Officer at SilencerCo. 

Word is that CEO Josh Waldron and President Jonathon Shults are still involved with the business but less so, and concentrating more on investor relations.

“The best way to learn anything, no matter what you’re doing, is by making mistakes.” BMX Gold Medalist Morgan Wade is no stranger to the try, try again way of life. Through more broken bones and serious injuries than we care to count, Wade has stayed committed to honing his craft and doing what he loves.

Morgan brings the same commitment to hunting as he does to BMX, always striving to learn from mishaps and improve for the next go around.

SHOT Show Media Day – SilencerCo Maxim 9

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

IMG_4271

Last year, we featured an article on SilencerCo’s integrally-suppressed Maxim 9 as seen at Media Day at the Range. At that time, it was a pre-production model with a 3D-printed frame.

This year, the Maxim 9s at the range were still pre-production, but much closer to the final product, and more importantly, we actually got a brief bit of range time with them. Major changes when compared to last year’s pre-production Maxim 9 include:

– Newly textured grip; note it is still 3D printed
– RMR cutout forward on the pistol, in a non-reciprocating position
– New trigger
– KeyMod slots under the dust cover to mount a light or laser

Yeah, you read that right, KeyMod slots. It’s a bit unorthodox for a handgun, but if it works, right?

Also, as it turns out the Maxim 9 features a delayed roller lock blowback action instead of a traditional short recoil, locked breech action.

SilencerCo is currently in the process of having a third-party manufacturer produce the grip frames for the production model Maxim 9s. Once that’s complete, we can expect to see the Maxim 9 out in the market in the coming months.

SilencerCo CEO Josh Waldron on the Hearing Protection Act

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

My fellow Americans,

Tuesday’s Republican election victory was a tremendous win for our Second Amendment rights and it also marked a significant increase in the potential for the Hearing Protection Act to become law and remove silencers from the NFA registry. SilencerCo has been and will continue to be a vocal supporter of the HPA and advocate for it to become a priority in the legislative agenda for 2017.

As a member of The Suppressed™, you’ve likely thought to yourself, “Why are silencers still an NFA item?” SilencerCo has not only wondered this ourselves, but along with partners such as the American Suppressor Association, we’ve taken steps to support the introduction of legislation to remove silencers from the list of NFA items.

On October 22, 2015 the Hearing Protection Act was introduced. This piece of legislation is aimed at removing silencers from the NFA and instead having their transfer go through a traditional ATF Form 4473 – the same way you would purchase a standard rifle or pistol.

What does this mean for you?

No $200 tax stamp
No excessive wait times
No NFA trusts
No fingerprint cards, passport photos, or Chief Law Enforcement Officer notification
A simple process, just like when you purchase most firearms through your dealer

Even though the House, Senate, and Presidency will be controlled by like-minded advocates for the Second Amendment, bills take time to become laws and citizens should not be taxed for trying to protect their hearing while exercising their Second Amendment rights. Between now and the passage of this bill, we encourage our customers to continue to support the industry and to take advantage of the following provision: The Hearing Protection Act also includes a provision for all people who purchase a silencer between the time the bill is introduced (October 22, 2015) until the day it passes – should you purchase a silencer during that time, you will receive a $200 tax credit to cover the cost of any new silencer tax stamps you pay for.

This bill was initially championed by Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) as its primary sponsor and since then has had multiple co-sponsors. SilencerCo, Rep. Salmon, and all supporters of the bill realize that this is a long-term effort and will not be something that happens overnight. With the help of people like you – The Suppressed – we will gain momentum and educate both the general public and lawmakers as to the true nature of silencers.

If you haven’t already joined The Suppressed, click HERE to add your voice to the cause and write to your Congressmen and women and Senators to voice your support for the HPA as a legislative priority for 2017.

Sincerely,

Josh Waldron
CEO, SilencerCo
