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.
