Unveiled at the 2017 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, Daniel Defense has released its first stand-alone suppressor, the DD WAVE. The 7.62 mm sound suppressor, which features an innovative 3D-printed construction and unique overlapping-baffle design, is available with a quick-detach Acme Thread Quick-Clamping System or a direct thread application.
"The DD WAVE is unique because it's constructed entirely using 3D direct metal laser sintering technology," said Daniel Defense President and CEO Marty Daniel. "We are able to do things with this type of manufacturing that you simply can't with a conventional machine.” He said the one-piece design, constructed from Inconel, eliminates the need for welds, typically the weakest parts of a suppressor.
The DD WAVE is available in both quick-detach and direct thread options. The quick detach version features Daniel Defense's proprietary Acme Thread Quick-Clamping System that won't carbon lock and securely clamps the suppressor to a 17-4 PH stainless steel muzzle device, making it easy to remove even after extended use, while the direct thread version features a traditional thread to barrel application. Constructed of Inconel, stainless steel, and titanium—and then Cerakote coated—the DD Wave is fiercely strong yet lightweight, making it durable, unobtrusive, and reliable enough to accommodate a wide variety of calibers ranging from 5.56 mm all the way up to .300 Win Mag.
MSRP for the Quick Detach version with included muzzle device is $1,157. The direct-thread version is $986. Both are available from authorized Daniel Defense dealers. To learn more, visit danieldefense.com/wave.
