New Rimfire Suppressor from Wilson Combat

WCR1

Suppressors have grown in popularity lately, and for good reason. They protect hearing, create quieter shooting environments – which is a big pro for those near ranges who do not want to listen to gunshots – and make hunting better in more ways than one. When many shooters think of suppressors, though, they tend to think of larger-caliber rifles and pistols. However, there’s more to suppressed shooting than just cutting the report of a .308 to a reduced cough. Which brings us to the newest offering from Wilson Combat: the WCR-22 Rimfire Suppressor.

The WCR-22 is designed for, yes, .22 rimfire rifles and pistols. It’s lightweight which is important for maintaining your firearm’s balance as much as possible but it’s still durable thanks to a titanium tube. The 7075 billet aluminum baffle core is advertised by Wilson Combat as easy-to-remove with the help of the included wrench, so shooters can perform basic cleaning. According to the company this rimfire suppressor can handle full-auto rimfire and magnum-level pressures. Other features include a solid baffle design and a variety of Armor-Tuff color finishes to match your firearm.

There are a number of uses for a suppressor on rimfire rifles and pistols, but the bottom line is really quite simple: suppressors are fun. And in addition to being enjoyable, they allow us to remove our ear pro and carry on conversations with fellow shooters without yelling or doing our best impression of a mime. Then there’s the fact that you can drop more varmints with suppressed rifles because they typically have trouble figuring out just what’s going on until it’s too late.

    $325 for a Titanium rimfire can? If it performs well, I’m a buyer.

  • Ambassador Vader

    Hmmm 325$ sounds like a reasonable price. Are you sure this was from Wilson combat? I would have thought that they would say it was handcrafted hand fit and slapped it on the market for $1,325.

    • thedonn007

      I agree, the price seems a bit low for Wilson Combat.

  • santi

    The most reasonable price ever to come from WC, as far as I know. Looks great.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Looks good, so does the price.

  • Ian Thorne

    Hmmm. 22lr monocore design with no outer sleeve? Haven’t they learned from others failures? That is going to weld itself shut if you don’t clean it every couple hundred rounds. That is a very disappointing design there as I don’t enjoy cleaning my suppressors 3 times every time I go to shoot them.

  • I really wanna hold out to see if suppressor legislation works out for us before buying one, hoping prices drop.

    But damn.
