Wilson Combat has released two new suppressors – QUELL and WCR-K22. The former is a rifle can available for a variety of caliber options and the latter is a rimfire suppressor. Let’s take a look at each of the new Wilson Combat silencers.
The QUELL suppressor is CNC machined out of 17-4 PH stainless steel. It is rated to work with full-auto firearms, magnum caliber rifles as well as short-barreled rifles. The K-Mount flash hider/suppressor mount is installed without a need for indexing. All you need to install it is a 7/8”, 12-point socket wrench. The QUELL is a sealed design with internal K-baffles. Because of its sealed nature, the company does not recommend shooting lead projectiles through this can to avoid lead buildup.
