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
