Daniel Defense’s New Wave 7.62 Suppressor – NRA 2017

The new DDWave suppressor from Daniel Defense is a 3D-printed 7.62mm suppressor from the highly respected company.

An exciting new find at the NRA 2017 show was the new DDWave Suppressor from Daniel Defense. Daniel Defense is known for making high-quality ARs that are uncompromising in their construction and durability, so this new entry into the suppressor market will undoubtedly garner a great deal of interest.

The DDWave is available in either QD or direct thread models.

The 7.62mm suppressor is named the “Wave” in recognition of its cascading “wave” pattern baffle geometry. Also of note is the fact that the suppressor is 3D printed, which eliminates the need for welds that can introduce areas of potential weakness. The unit features a quick detach locking system (as well as an optional direct thread system) and stainless steel, inconel and titanium construction for light weight as well as strength. It is salt bath nitrided and then coated in Cerakote. The Wave measures 7.6 inches in length and weighs 17.2 ounces. It has an MSRP of $986 for the direct thread model and $1,157 for the QD variant.

    “DDWave combines light weight with rugged construction ” At 17.6 ounces and less than 8″ long, this is hardly light weight suppressor. And the durability of 3-D printed suppressors has not yet been determined.
    As for Daniel Defense, they may be “highly respected” by some but they are also way over priced.

    From everything Ive read, the 3d printed baffles or all in one CNC cut baffles allow the manufacturers to fine tune the baffles (literally) from computer derived models to achieve much better sound suppression than that of tradition design.
    But me personally I believe everything on a rifle should be servicable. I mean if I spend $1000 on a can, which Ive always felt to be wallet rape from these manufacturers, I should be able to break it down, clean it, and if need be order replacement parts. Just sayin.

    3D Printed, what material is used and how does it stand up to prolonged heat? Is it full auto rated? If the body and baffles are 3D printed as a single unit, how can it be sufficiently cleaned?

      It’s a centerfire rifle can. You don’t have to clean it like you do a rimfire/pistol can. The heat and blast will keep most build-up at bay. You always have the option of soaking these type cans to loosen any build-up if you want. Very few centerfire rifle cans are user serviciable.

      The tube and baffles are Inconel.
