First Look: TacSol Pac-Lite TSS .22 LR Suppressed Upper Receiver

posted on January 24, 2019

Tactical Solutions (aka TacSol) is a well-known name in the rimfire game, offering a wide variety of accessories and upgrades for .22 LR rifles and pistols as well as complete rimfire firearms. For 2019, they are introducing the new Pac-Lite TSS integrally suppressed upper for Ruger Mark series of pistols. TacSol has built a reputation for lightweight firearms and accessories that consistently deliver accuracy and precision, and this new upper for the Ruger MK1, MKII, MKII and 22/45 pistols continues that legacy.

“We at TacSol are very proud of this engineering feat and are very anxious to release the Pac-Lite TSS out into the marketplace,” said Dan Person, vice president of production at TacSol. “I firmly believe our customers will be very pleased with the functionality and performance of this suppressed barrel upgrade.”

The Pac-Lite TSS upper features TacSol’s patented split tube design for ease of cleaning and service. Built from high-strength aluminum, the Pac-Lite TSS has titanium baffles, a stainless steel split tube and a titanium muzzle cap for strength and lighter weight. Installation of the PacLite TSS is a breeze, with no special tools or gunsmithing needed. At just 11 ounces, it will suppress the sound of your Ruger pistol, without weighing you down at the range, and this new suppressor takes full advantage of TacSol’s legacy of high quality rimfire products that are the first choice for thousands of American gun owners.

MSRP for the new TacSol Pac-Lite TSS upper is $599. More information is available at

Review: Tisas PX-9 GEN3 Duty

It’s said that in life, one never gets a second chance to create a first impression. SDS Imports, the company that imports the Tisas firearms manufactured in Turkey, appears to have embraced that piece of wisdom, because I was extremely impressed from the moment I opened the box containing its new PX-9 GEN3 Duty 9 mm semi-automatic pistol. Except for some ammo, the box contained everything you need to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus In 30 Super Carry

Before we dive headfirst into the morass that is the 30 Super Carry debate, let’s start with something (slightly) less controversial: Smith & Wesson’s Shield Plus is a supremely good pistol. Building on the success of the standard Shield and updated M2.0 versions, the Shield Plus kept critical dimensions similar to allow most gear designed for the Shield to work for the Shield Plus.
