Wilson Combat continues to expand from their core offerings of 1911 handguns with their latest offering, a rimfire suppressor dubbed the WCR-22. The new can is designed for use with both handguns and rifles.

The focus of the can was on reducing weight, coming in at just 4.2 ounces for a 6″ can. The outer tube is manufactured from titanium with the baffles coming from 7075 aluminum. To avoid any mis-match in metal types, the 1/2×28″ threads are a 416 stainless. The outside is finished in Wilson’s Armor-Tuff available in five colors available at launch.

Wilson Combat is rating the can as “full auto” for most rimfire calibers including the .22 magnum off of a short barrel. According to Wilson Combat, “This hard-use rimfire suppressor sports impressive noise reduction using subsonic, standard and high velocity .22 rimfire ammunition due to its unique solid baffle design.” Further, they tout its “impressive long term durability”, but no word is given to how the can will last longer than similar offerings.

Those interested can pick one up for $325, a special introductory price. It is available direct from Wilson Combat’s website and the cans are in-stock and ready to ship. The WCR-22 includes the can and wrench for removing the baffle core for cleaning.

No word if the suppressor qualifies for the Wilson Combat Finance Program.

    This sounds pretty good.
    Price is right.
    You can shoot .22’s through a .223/5.56 suppressor, right?

    • iksnilol

      Yap. Though be careful with leading.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        What do you mean?

        • iksnilol

          .22 LR is usually dirtier than regular old 5.56 (especially the unjacketed rounds). So be careful to remove the lead occasionally so that the suppressor doesn’t clog up. That’s like one of the reasons so many .22 cans are user serviceable.

      • ostiariusalpha

        I’m not so sure about that; 5.56 is more than a little rough on aluminum baffles. Sounds like a good way to kill your expensive suppressor.

    Something affordable from… WILSON COMBAT!?

    I gots to buy me a shotgun, there’s bound to be flying bacon soon.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Not for nothing… But the Wilson 30 cal Ti can, definitely the loudest 30cal can I’ve heard in person.

    while i find the idea of suppressing 22lr amazing; i find it hard to believe that a 22lr suppressor is really worth it considering the cost of the tax stamp. i honestly wish that someone would just tell wilson to get on the ball with their 762×40.

      $525 for the can on a $300 firearm shooting ammo that isn’t easy to find. Seems logical to me!

        Take it from somebody who owns 5 .22lr cans, suppressed 22s are the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

        • Nashvone

          I’m sure it’s a lot of fun. As much I would love to do it, I just can’t justify they money.
