LaRue TranQuilo™ Sound Suppressor M308



We received word that our warfighters need a suppressor with less back pressure ... the thinking is our Special Forces, the tips of our spear, are eating too much gun smoke over the course of their careers.

The TranQuilo is our solution to this issue. Buy with confidence.

Mark LaRue
 

The LaRue TranQuilo was designed and engineered for the LaRue 7.62x51 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.

All components are precisely engineered to fit together solidly and perfectly. There are no welds to fail, or dimensionally migrate as heat builds up (shifting your bore centerline). There is no need to “fix” crooked bore centerlines with wire EDM. All parts are in perfect alignment when assembled. Accuracy is what LaRue is about, and we do it right the first time.

To ensure the suppressor remains locked when attached, a captive locking-ring securely grips the suppressor to the adapter. Along the tube, knurled bands provide structural robustness as well as added grip for installation and removal. This profile also helps keep mirage covers from slipping forward during extended periods of use. On the endcap, an open, angled, four-prong flash-reducing tip reduces the small residual muzzle flash.

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 TranQuilo Adapter comes with a theta shim kit.

Best Suppressor I have ever used. I ran this on a .308 OBR for a week straight. In that time I put over a thousand rounds through it. The suppressor gets used like this weekly. No telling how many rounds are through it at this point and it still works like new. I have used a number of different suppressors over the years and put an uncountable number of rounds through each one. None compare to the TranQuilo. -Things I noticed that put this at the top of my suppressor list. o Sound reduction is just as good, if not better, then suppressors twice the cost. o The fit is amazing. It had no play once attached to muzzle. o No carbon build up on muzzle break. This made it incredibly easy to remove, even after a few hundred rounds. o No carbon/gas blow back in your face. I can not stress how important this is. Anyone who has spend an extended amount of time behind a suppressed rifle understands the amount of gas you eat and breath, not to mention the carbon that gets thrown in your eyes. o The price point is fantastic. For the quality of this product $700 is a steal, even if you have to buy a new LaRue muzzle break. I hope this review helped. LaRue has yet again exceeded all expectations I had.

This is without a doubt my favorite center-fire rifle suppressor, period. The LEPE (Lower Ejection Port Emissions) design is nothing short of revolutionary. With every single .30 cal can I've ever handled, there's always been a noticable increase in back pressure, causing hot gases to hit me in the face. When firing a semi auto rifle suppressed for any sustained amount of time, it makes the experience unpleasant. The Tranquilo stops this from happening. I am not exaggerating. The very first time I shot a Tranquilo, I thought the rifle malfunctioned, because in all respects it felt like I was shooting a non-suppressed rifle (except for the obvious reduction in noise). There were gasses hitting my face, and it didn't seem like it was "throwing brass" from higher back pressure. It makes shooting suppressed for long periods an absolute pleasure. I have since used it on both .308 and .223 ARs and not only does it improve the experience with both calibers, it leaves the guns cleaner than other suppressors (most likely due to the LEPE design). As far as accuracy goes, I have not noticed any reduction in accuracy while firing match ammunition nor have I perceived any POI shift. The design is extremely well thought out. The raised "ribs" aid in keeping suppressor covers securely fastened to the outside it. I have an Armageddon Gear Mirage Cover, and there is no back and forth movement even after long shot strings. I have noticed on other suppressors that covers may shift front to back under recoil due to the smooth sides. This isn't the case with the Tranquilo. The attachment system is best in class. The thread-on design keeps fouling from building up on the locking surfaces, and the locking ring prevents it from loosening off under recoil. I have also had other cans that will send some gas through the quick attach mount, depositing fouling on the front of my hand guard, gas block, and barrel. I have not had this issue while using the Tranquilo. Also, from the factory, the internal threads have what appears to be the same anti-seize applied to an AR barrel nut. When removing the suppressor, there is a hand-firm "break", then it spins off effortlessly. All things considered, it is an extremely well built, well designed supressor.

Great Piece of equipment. Well made. Impressive mounting system, mounts securely and it should give trouble service for a long time. Larue continues to expand their line of products and maintain their reputation for reliability. Larue's products work as advertised. Have had the suppressor on three rifles (223, 300 BO, 308 Winchester) and it works with all three. Have about 1,000 rounds thru the 3 rifles with TranQuilo and I could not ask better performance.

once again LaRue delivers another quality product. I got to take it to the range this weekend, in a side by side comparison with my surefire suppressor on a 300 BLK sbr. 20 rounds in rapid fire and you can still breath. At half the cost of surefire definitely a bargain. Will be buying more adapters for other rifles.

Dear LaRue---over the past 12 years as a class 3 dealer, I've had the opportunity to stand behind a great number of rifle suppressors. This is the most pleasant experience with any rifle suppressor ever. I actually forgot that I was shooting suppressed in the sense that I forgot about the gas blowback in my face, as there was none. I fired several rounds on my Lewis Machine and Tool LMS .308 before I noticed the absence of blowback. Same on my Lewis Machine and Tool 5.56mm AR-15. Fantastic suppressor and outstanding high quality workmanship and customer service. Even though I'm a class 3 dealer, this one I'm purchasing and transferring to me for my personal use---I rarely purchase stuff as I'm pretty picky and don't just buy every toy on the planet, but this is top notch. Great job LaRue Tactical.

I have suppressors from SilencerCo and Surefire, and just picked up my TranQuilo a few weeks ago. I’ve been using it on my 7.62 tOBR and I’m seriously impressed. The double shoulder design of the LaRue Brake tightens the TQ so there is no gas blowback like other suppressors I own; no gas, not carbon and no particles. More importantly, the design allows you to remove the reinstall the suppressor with basically no POI shift so it’s consistent and repeatable. I shot sub ½ MOA groups with the tOBR/TQ and it was just as impressive after removal and reinstall. The TQ has a nice “tone” and I believe it a bit quieter than my other suppressors. I also shot successive strings and even after a 30 round mag dump, the TQ was 125 degrees cooler than my other suppressor. It dissipated the heat quicker and I was able to remove and store it about 30 minutes faster than another suppressor. I liked the engineering and performance so much I bought a second TQ. Here's a three shot group from the tOBR with TQ at 100 yards: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v501/defender3va/Day%202%20Initial%20TQ_zpsouzkdwtl.jpg

Jun-2016 i ordered my suppressor back in Oct of 2015, I'm just now getting to the point in the process to apply for my stamp. my point is that it took over 8 months just to produce the part i ordered. had i known that in the beginning i may have looked for another alternative to the TranQuilo suppressor. each time i contacted the team at Larue it felt to me like the blind was leading the blind during this entire process. not a good experience in any way. very frustrating! with all of that said, I'm sure that once i finally receive the product after our fine government gives their stamp of approval, i'll be as happy as ever with the TranQuilo added to my collection. i'd love nothing more than to continue to beat up on Larue for this horrible experience acquiring my new suppressor but its really hard to do so once you have the opportunity to use their fine products. i have 2 Larue rifles and they are by far the most accurate and reliable firearms I've ever shot. if you can wait a year to get your suppressor, I'm sure you will be happy with the purchase.

Put on Dan defense 308. Very happy with results. No needed adjustments for gas due to tranquilo's design. Been shooting 5.56 with no ears as well. After 3 mag's, takes about 30 min to cool. It's heavy but the mounting system is absolutely rock solid. Zero leaks even with local gun shop's "college try" pin and weld. This thing is built tough. Ran alongside an omega can. Very similar experiences off the bench, except the tranguilo keeps things cleaner. Thanks LaRue. Great goody bags as well.

Received the TranQuilo about a month ago and couldn't be happier with the fit and finish. After installing the muzzle device, I messed around with attaching and locking/unlocking it. It seems like such a simple mechanism, but it's rock solid when installed. At the range, the TranQuilo provided great sound suppression with my OBR 5.56. Once I dial in the port selector/ammo combination, I'm excited to see the results. Blow back is basically nonexistent.

Received my suppressor a few weeks ago and just had the opportunity to take it out today. The attachment engineering is great! It locked right into place and was solid. I didn't really do any sighting in today, but the point of impact was consistent and repeatable. I got no appreciable blowback as I fired round after round. I did notice that I had to tune the port selector on my OBR to have enough back pressure to cycle the action. Once I had it dialed in, everything ran flawlessly. After I was finished, the suppressor cooled down fairly quickly and was ready to go into the pouch without worrying about it being too hot.

I enjoyed using my new LaRue Tranquilo Sound suppressor that I picked up from you on Thursday, last weekend while I was shooting and hunting. It is a great item and It is quieter and sounds different than my other suppressors from other companies. There is much less recoil when shooting my 6.5 Grendel AR with a 16" barrel and much quieter. There is no gas blow back from the bolt in my face or smell of gas. Again, thank you for helping me get the ATF paperwork submitted and immediate call when my stamp arrived on your desk. It was very nice to meet you and technician last Thursday and for your assistance in getting the new muzzle brakes installed on my rifle barrel. I am very pleased with your muzzle brake design with the double shoulder on the base below the threads for excellent suppressor support. The suppressor screws down and protects the threads and keeps them clean in this well designed arrangement. I look forward to many more successful shooting sessions with my Tranquilo Sound suppressor. Also, the POI does not shift and my groups are tighter and more consistent with this suppressor than my other 7.62 caliber suppressor. David R.

As a basis of comparison, I've shot with a few friend's suppressors, and although a bit skeptical about the LEPE claim, it's true. While I've not had the opportunity to use it on any of my .308s, I've used in on my LaRue 5.56 OBR and the results are amazing. While the OBR has an adjustable gas block for use with a suppressor, it wasn't even necessary to adjust the gas for the rifle to operate flawlessly with the TranQuilo. Ejection port emissions were negligible; I caught more burnt power from the gentleman in the next bay than from my own AR. The OBR was tamed to the point of feeling like shooting a 10-22, and the report was less than that of one. The device itself is typical top notch LaRue quality and craftsmanship. The brake, even without the suppressor, is outstanding. In summary, it is, and does, exactly what is described. Highly recommended!

Unfortunately my TranQuilo is still in jail awaiting the Form 4 transfer. I visited it when it arrived the end of March and was impressed with the craftmanship I found. Can't wait to run it on my 6.8 SPC and compare it to my Saker 7.62. I will surely inform all of the results hopefully in the near future. GO ATF!
