Boise, ID based Tactical Solutions is introducing some new things this week during SHOT Show, including an upper and a complete rifle. Among the rifle's advantages, they say, is a provision for the versatility of an SBR without  all the NFA paperwork and red tape.

SHOT Show 2017: Tactical Solutions TSAR-223

Here’s what they tell us.

Tactical Solutions, a leading manufacturer and provider of innovative firearms, rimfire conversions and accessories introduces the highly anticipated TSAR-223 upper and complete rifle this week at SHOT Show. TacSol has a solid reputation for listening to consumer feedback and responding to consumer demand. So with the highly successful launch of their TSAR-300 in 2014, they took note of the overwhelming number of requests they received for that rifle in the widely popular Remington .223 caliber. This inspired the TSAR-223 which they are exclusively offering as a complete rifle or the standalone upper.

In keeping with TacSol’s mastery of suppressed weapons, the TSAR-223 features a 16.1” pre threaded barrel that allows for a shorter overall length when shooting suppressed…TacSol is the first and only manufacturer to offer a product of this kind.

Tactical Solutions Upper

The upper features a ½”x28 pre-threaded barrel with a 1-8” twist and a legal length of 16.1” precluding the need for short barreled rifle paperwork. It offers a sleek design with a flat top upper and comes with a full auto mil spec bolt and carrier group. It boasts a Free Float Aluminum Handguard in M-LOK or KeyMod, a standard AR Charging handle, comes with a 10 round magazine, and works with .223 Caliber Suppressors. The Shroud is permanently affixed to barrel in compliance with ATF regulations. It has a 12” Bore length with a 1.750” Maximum Suppressor Diameter and a 6.500” Minimum Suppressor Length.

Keith Freely, President at TacSol tells us, “We’re excited to expand our TSAR rifle line with the addition of the TSAR-223 rifle.  Since we released the TSAR-300 we have been asked if we offer same rifle in .223 Remington and now it is finally available.  The ability to attach a suppressor without adding to the overall barrel length makes this a great and unique product.”

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.
Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc
