TLX (9mm, .45)




Want a tough can that is light enough to run on locked breech pistols without a booster*?   Meet the TLX! Made from 6Al-4V gr. 5 titanium, it is a fully welded 10 baffle tubeless suppressor that can be used on pistols, carbines and sub machine guns. The Alpha pattern threads in the rear will accept 1.125-28 threaded mounts and adapters, including 3 lug and Griffin Cam Lok & EZ Lok**.   TLX comes standard with an ultralight 7075-T651 direct thread mount in your choice of 1/2-28, M13.5×1 LH, 9/16-24, .578-28, 5/8-24 or M16x1 LH (specify thread in note when ordering).

TLX has been subjected to torture testing with back-to-back-to-back drum magazine dumps on 900+ RPM sub machine guns, and though it’s not an approved use, we even tested on 16″ 5.56mm and 18″ .308 rifles!  Despite it’s scant weight, it’s a tough little bugger!

TLX ships with a pin wrench for the mount

Use of cast lead bullets is not recommended with sealed suppressors.  However, TLX can be cleaned with harsh chemicals that dissolve lead.   Be sure to remove the aluminum mount first before submerging in solutions that are not aluminum-safe.

*We have not tested all possible host & ammunition combinations.   Some pistols may need more energetic loads with a rigid mounted suppressor, and there are some hosts that simply don’t like to run suppressed, with or without boosters.  We cannot guarantee function of all host firearms, only that all of ours have functioned with TLX using subsonic ammunition, and it is known in the industry that 4-5 ounces is the approximate limit for weight of a suppressor on most locked breech handguns to cycle without the use of a recoil booster.  Hammer fired hosts tend to be more tolerant of added mass than striker fired, though our striker fired weapons have been reliable with TLX using common 147 gr. 9mm and 230 gr. .45 ball ammunition.  It is possible that some pistols out there will still need our Alpha booster assembly to cycle properly even with a 4 ounce suppressor.

**The added mass of some mounts/adapters or optics may cause the total rigid mounted mass to exceed the limit for reliable cycling on short recoil pistols.  Federal Syntech 150 gr. 9mm ammunition has been problematic with hosts that cycle 147 gr. ball and even the lighter-loaded Fiocchi 158 gr. ammunition just fine with TLX.

    Was able to test both Canine and TLX on my own host. I wanted both but ultimately picked the TLX for the extra sound. Its a perfect size and absolutely feels like its not on the gun. Cant wait for my form4 to be approved.
