Daniel Defense introduces 3D printed WAVE suppressor (VIDEO)

Georgia-based Daniel Defense this week announced their debut to the standalone suppressor field with the innovative DD WAVE.

Set to premiere this week at the 146th National Rifle Association Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Atlanta, Guns.com was able to check out the new can at the American Suppressor Association media day event at the Griffin Gun Club on Thursday.

The WAVE uses Inconel, a nickel-chromium-based superalloy, with stainless steel and titanium to produce a 7.6-inch can that is crafted completely through direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) additive manufacturing. The method negates the traditional tube and baffle system used by legacy platforms. The suppressor base is the serialized part, meaning the main body of the WAVE can be sent in for service if needed without an NFA hassle.

The 7.62 caliber WAVE has a quick detach mount (MSRP $1157) or direct thread ($986) and weighs 17.2-ounces.

It is expected on store shelves by July.
