Desert Tactical Arms: DTSS Sound Suppressor

Desert Tactical Arms DTSS Titanium Sound Supressor

Desert Tactical Arms developed the DTSS (Desert Tactical Sound Suppressor) to enhance accuracy, repeatability, and minimize impact shift between suppressed and unsuppressed fire. Testing shows consistent accuracy improvements of nearly 0.25 MOA when shooting with a DTSS. The full titanium construction make the DTSS the lightest .338 caliber silencer on the planet, It weighs only 1.15 lb! We offer both steel and titanium suppressors.

The DTSS Silencer conveniently installs over the SRS-QD Brake. The baffle design tightens the Suppressor as gases impact the baffles which prevents the Suppressor from loosening during high volume fire. Many competitors use a ratcheting lock to prevent their cans from loosening. Distance between ratchet teeth allows minor play even when tightened, which will degrade accuracy.

DTSS are available in .30 and .338 Caliber options and provide a high-to-low compatibility feature that allows the .338 caliber suppressor to attach to both .338 and .30 caliber muzzle brakes and prevents the .30 caliber suppressor from accidentally being installed on a .338 caliber muzzle brake.

In testing the DTSS, we first fired a three shot group unsuppressed with muzzle brake that measured .403" shown in top group. We then attached suppressor and impact shifted down 3" no horizontal shift the suppressed three shot group size .223"

Desert Tactical Arms and Sniper Country

Real World Precision Shooting Sniper Training

You all might remember my comments on the Desert Tactical Arms SRS and how impressed I was with its portability, ergonomics, and most importantly, accuracy. Both the .308 and the 338 Lapua were remarkable and I cleared the plates at 500 meters without any difficulty.

Me and the DT SRS .308
