Daniel Defense unveils a new suppressor that takes advantage of modern 3D printing technology to have some very well thought out features.
The DD Wave is 3D printed and consists of stainless steel, Inconel, and titanium materials and is finished in a salt nitrite bath with Cerakote finish. The suppressor features "advanced cascading wave baffle geometry" which is a design that is intended to more effectively attenuate sound as compared to traditional baffle style suppressors.
The DD Wave is a .30 cal suppressor that will be offered in 1/2-28 and 5/8-24 thread pitches. It will attach either directly or with a tool less quick detach mount to a 17-4PH stainless steel muzzle device.
It takes approx seven days to print a suppressor of Inconel, although they print batches at one time. The interesting technology printed into the suppressor also includes a coupling that prevents carbon lock, and the serialized part is the base / mount. With the base / mount being the serialized part that means if something should happen such as a baffle strike Daniel Defense can replace the suppressor without it being considered a new suppressor.
The advertised specs are;
Weight: 17.2 ounces
Length (with coupling): 7.6″
Collar Diameter: 1.68″
Tube Diameter (Ribs): 1.59″
Tube Diameter Front: 1.50″
