Guns LaRue Releases TranQuilo Suppressor Recoil Staff September 4, 2015 Join the Conversation LaRue Tactical is largely known for their mounts and precision rifles. Now they've stepped into another market with the TranQuilo. Designed with the precision shooter in mind, the TranQuilo purportedly has minimal shift when mounted and it's said gas blowback is significantly reduced. Here's what they have to say about it: The LaRue TranQuilo was designed and engineered for the LaRue 7.62×51 family of rifles, but it’s right at-home on any precision .308 with a 5/8-24 threaded muzzle (1/2-28 threaded adapters also available). The TranQuilo is 100% CNC machined from stainless steels, reduces sound to hearing-safe levels and flash signature to almost zero. CNC machining of all components results in near zero point-of-impact shift when comparing on/off repeatability. This is critical for the majority of users who remove and attach their suppressor between shooting sessions. The TranQuilo’s reduced-blowback is what sets it apart. The design approach implemented what LaRue calls “SOT” (Safer Operator Technology). With mitigation of gas blow-back in mind, LEPE (Lower Ejection Port Emissions) reduces dangerous materials and contaminants that typically encounter the user's face. LEPE is an internal design that allows a percentage of pressure to bypass the main flow-path, resulting in extremely low gas blow-back and soft recoil with the benefit of optimum noise and flash reduction. All components manufactured from a combination of 17-4 PH Stainless Steel and Incoloy A-286. 17-4 PH (Precipitation Hardening) Stainless Steel is a robust chromium-nickel grade of stainless, hardened by a precipitation-hardening treatment. Incoloy A-286 is an age hardenable, Iron-Nickel-Chromium alloy designed for applications requiring high-strength and excellent corrosion resistance. The Muzzle-Brake Adapter is also precision-machined from 17-4 PH Stainless Steel. Even though the TranQuilo was designed as a .308 suppressor, it also works well on .223 rifles. Adapters are available in both 5/8-24 and 1/2-28 threads. The Adapter’s patented dual-shouldered design seats the suppressor in perfect alignment to the bore, and eliminates gas from escaping to the rear of the suppressor, keeping attachment threads clean and free of carbon. The listed specifications are: Weight: 23 oz Length: 8” Diameter: 1.50-1.75” Finish: 17-4 PH Stainless Steel Adapter: LaRue Muzzle Brake, 17-4 PH, 5/8-24 thread. Attachment Method: Fast-Attach thread-on, with captive locking nut. List price is $699. You can see more about the TranQuilo on LaRue's page here.
