Tactical Solutions: The Quiet Professionals

    Tactical Solutions based in Boise, ID opened its doors in 2002 with one primary product: the Pac-Lite barrel and upper assembly for the Ruger MKI and MKII line of rimfire pistols. Created as a answer to a non-existant upgrade industry for the popular .22LR pistols, the Pac-Lite was designed to to be lightweight, accurate and durable for the enjoyment of backwoods enthusiasts. And although it would be another four years before TacSol would design and build their first commercial suppressor, the Pac-Lite was an immediate success.

    Not familar with the full TacSol product lineup? Not surprising – they are billed as the industries ‘quiet professionals’ who create quality kit focused on affordable performance. Like most of the companies we highlight in the TFB ‘Spotlight’ series, TacSol would prefer to spend their budget on research and design rather than advertising. And it shows; in the last 10 years their product spectrum has increased dramatically.

    For example, TacSol now produces a complete Ruger 10/22 patterned rifle with a custom-built receiver and a variety of options. Dubbed the X-Ring, the SB-X version of the rifle includes a short barrel with a permanently attached extension that brings it up to a non-NFA status length of 16 inches. Inside the extension, a suppressor is added giving it the feel of a suppressed short barreled rifle without the hassle of added ATF paperwork and paying another $200. See TFB Rusty’s recent review of the SB-X barrel here.

    If a true two-stamp gun is more your speed, TacSol’s largest distributor, Silencer Shop in Austin, Texas, also sells the XBR, an exclusive short-barreled version of the X-Ring rifle.

    The light weight X-RING rifle is designed for quick target acquisition and full days of shooting without feeling like you carried it all day. Our quality craftsmanship and built-in durability allows you to shoot your rifle with peace-of-mind that you will be passing it on for generations to come.

    Of course the Pac-Lite upper is still one of the most popular upgrades for rimfire pistol shooters. Besides the MKII/MKII versions, Tactical Solutions also offers an barrel/upper combination for the Browning Buckmark series.

    One concern you often see posed about the Pac-Lite uppers is the possibility of peening as a steel bolt makes contact with an aluminum breech. “You’ll most likely wear out a barrel before seeing any peening issues on the breech,” says Keith Feeley of Tactical Solutions. “We have an original Pac-Lite upper assembly with 90,000 rounds down the barrel and it’s still running strong.”
