Wilson Combat Releases “Whisper” Titanium Suppressor

sub-whisper-002

Wilson Combat continues its rapid expansion away from its 1911 roots, this time with another entry into the suppressor market. The new “Whisper” suppressor series is oriented for those who detest the weight on the front of their gun. Using “corrosion proof” titanium, Wilson Combat manages to get the Whisper down to 17.8 ounces (for reference, the lightweight SilencerCo Omega we reviewed is 14 ounces in direct thread configuration).

The Whisper is announced in four bore diameters with two thread pitches (common 1/2 x 28 and 5/8 x 24 threads).

SKU’s and compatibility is listed below, courtesy of Wilson Combat.

  
SUP-WHISPER556 5.56mm Max Bore Diameter .224″ .204 Ruger, .223 Rem., 5.56 NATO
SUP-WHISPER68 6.8mm Max Bore Diameter .277″ .243 Win, .260 Rem., 6.5 Grendal, 6.8 SPC, .270 Win.
SUP-WHISPER762 7.62mm Max Bore Diameter .308″ 7mm-08, 300 Whisper/Blackout, .30 RAR, .308 Win., .30-06
SUP-WHISPER9 9mm Max Bore Diameter .358″ .338 Fed., 9mm, .358 Win.

While the weight is kept to a minimum, the can is relatively large. Outside diameter is listed at 1.875″ and length is nearly 6.5″ inches (6 & 5/16 to be exact) but some of that is reduced to 4.5″ additional length over an A2 bird cage.

The Whisper series interfaces with a Melonite treated “Rapid Thread” muzzle brake in either of the listed thread pitches. Wilson recommends a .740″ OD shoulder for the barrel to ensure a solid lock-up.

Retail is set at $1,195. The can is available in a standard bead-blasted bare titanium finish. For those looking for colors, an additional $50 gets you Wilson’s Armor-Tuff coating in black, OD green, FDE, or desert tan.

    Villagers demand tri-lug mount (mp5). Just kidding, only the village-idiot wants that (me). Stupid GemTech won’t make more of their MK-9K’s.

    Love seeing more silencers hit the market.

  • Don’t care if it was made of Platinum, $1200 is way outta my price range.

    Seriously, My form 1 weighs in at 19.2oz (30cal). Uses, from what I can tell, an identical taper mount threaded brake… Total cost ~$400 (not including the much faster and e-filed stamp). It’s titanium too (caps, blast chamber and tube). Steel brake, $35… Titanium, $45. I have brakes in 1/2×28, 14x1LH, and 5/8×24. Off topic now, but Wilson’s components are inferior to ed brown and EGW, yet they still gouge like it’s January 2013. I don’t get it. If you want a form 4 can get an Omega, or a sig, this can as this price is just silly.

    You are seemingly understanding it better.

    The quotation marks around corrosion proof are spot on. While certainly corrosion resistant, titanium will definitely corrode, especially when it gets hot. Good thing cans never get hot, right?
