A suppressor for sporting guns was invented by Hiram Percy Maxim and patented it as “Maxim Silencer“. The big deal about the silencer was that guns don’t have to be loud. Maxim intent was to provide a positive experience for the shooter and everyone around them.

Silencers are ordinarily built of a metal barrel with inward components to diminish the sound of discharging by moderating the getting away force gas and at times by diminishing the speed of the slug. Ok, that’s enough of the technical stuff.

Time to enjoy the video by SilencerCo who produced a high quality video explaining all of this in a more visual presentation, enjoy.
