#1. The Maxi is no louder than the LDC screwed onto the threads lets it be. Well designed and executed, an LDC don't hove to be mega-big to be quiet.
#2. No "real shooter" has a factory=production Gauntlet..keep in mind the shot-show tests of a sample prototype, but don't bet your azz that that's how the production version is going to end up (And I gotta say "IF" rather than "WHEN").
#3. Play around with the adjustments built into an M-Rod, and if you are after moderate power (say something like 12-15 FPE in .177, 19-24 foot pounds in .22< or 25-33 foot pounds in .25) you could find the issue shroud system to be PDQ (pretty damned quiet).
It really comes down to three things: VOLUME of gas released per shot, VOLUME of the shroud/LDC, and the construction of the baffles inside the shroud/LDC.
