St. Cloud, MN-based Maxim Defense, the (self-described) “premiere manufacturer in PDW technologies”, is proud to announce the availability of the Maxim Defense PDX in Urban Grey. This may or may not be similar to other “tactical gray” hues out there, I’m just not sure. I haven’t seen a comparison palette. Presumably, it’s very similar to Urban Gray.
Regardless, it’s on a PDX, and those are nice.
Here’s the rest of what they tell us.
The PDX, which is now chambered in .300BLK, 5.56 NATO, and 7.62×39, had its genesis in USSOCOM. Born of the SOCOM PDW solicitation, the Maxim Defense PDX personal defense weapon dominates CQB encounters and puts maximum energy on target.
The PDX – which is just 18.75 in. OAL – is available in both pistol and SBR configurations. Utilization of the patent-pending Maxim SCWTM system reduces stock length to 4 in., while an integrated BCG with interchangeable buffer weights provides maximum performance and versatility without sacrificing functionality (and, for the aesthetically minded, form).
The PDX is also equipped with a newly invented Maxim HATEBRAKE muzzle booster. This patent-pending device significantly reduces recoil, decreases the flash signature, pushes gasses and concussion waves downrange away from the operator, and improves overall performance in short barrel pistols and rifles.
