The MAXIM’s CGS MICRO series of signature suppressors are made specifically with short barrels in mind, ensuring a compact overall length. The Direct Metal Laser Sintered (DMLS – 3D printed) additive manufacturing process we use creates parts with even higher strength and hardness than billet and forgings, with zero points of failure such as welds. The DMLS process can create fully dense parts, with better material density than a billet or cast product. On top of that, there are no welds to break and there are no welds to cause warping and concentricity issues because there are no welds in our MAXIM’s CGS MICRO. There’s a lot that can go wrong with a faulty weld, and our manufacturing process eliminates those issues and their byproducts entirely. Faulty welds can and do very easily slip through the QC cracks until it’s in the hands of the end-user. Every single batch of our DMLS silencers are inspected in a lab to ensure they meet/exceed standards for material properties. The suppressor is internally coated with a proprietary Hexagonal Boron Nitride layer known as S-Line which is applied via a DCD (Dynamic Compound Deposition) process. The internal S-Line coating prevents the build-up of fouling from copper, lead, carbon, etc, eliminating the need for cleaning though it‘s still possible to clean if ever actually needed. Simplicity in design eliminates small, complex cavities that can clog with fouling, and the silencer design itself deals with heat and pressure much better than traditional designs, further increasing the abuse they can handle. CGS is the only manufacturer offering silencers that can be easily converted from a “traditional” type silencer to a “flow bypass” type silencer simply by changing out the front end cap with a wrench, making our silencers adjustable by the end-user across the spectrum of sound/flash/gas reduction, not just one permanent setting. Our system uses a larger than normal bore diameter to help achieve lower decibel levels at the ear and also reduce toxic gases blowing back into the shooter’s face and in the event of an unstable projectile, the wider bore limits the potential for baffle strikes. 718 Inconel can endure the abuse of full auto short barrel use.
This silencer design reduces blowback and toxic gases blown back at the shooter, allows the system overall to be much stronger than other suppressors by immediately venting the blast chamber and reintroducing the gases further forward in the baffle stack thereby reducing pressure and heat and more evenly distributing the gas, heat, and pressure to prevent hot spots, and also will eliminate, or on super short barrels will significantly reduce particle erosion compared to other traditional silencer designs currently available, leading to a far longer service life than any other suppressor on the market. The design of the MAXIM’s CGS MICRO also helps limit thermal signature by keeping the silencer cooler than traditional designs.
The MAXIM’s CGS MICRO core’s dual functionality allows the user to change the function of the silencer completely simply by swapping out the front cap for a different one. For example, the Solid Front Cap that comes with it will allow the silencer to act as a traditional silencer, and the Vented Front Cap will allow the silencer to act as a “flow bypass” type suppressor.
