That was a good read for a chuckle. "Giving the shooter the advantage if an SBR..." Some one should tell them that velocity loss is not the reason folks want a short barrel. The advantage is in being compact. In any case for the $300+ they are asking you could have paid for your stamp and shortened your barrel. Here is the last one I did.
What is nice about the TACTSOL bll is that you can have the overall length needed to be legal , and then install a can when you want and still have the same length. That is what they are getting at , plus it is then only a single stamp and not a double ( SBR + Can ).

But the suppressor has to be permanent as TXsurf pointed out. My 22 cans are shot on a bunch of different hosts. If you are making it integral the you would be better off (better suppression and looks better) going with one built from scratch.

Yeah, you can get that barrel and it would be legal and then you could addd a suppressor which probably has to take a TS proprietary suppressor. So, single tax stamp, double TS tax. Win, win for TS.

The TacSol barrel is legal because the slotted extension is considered part of the barrel itself. They are threaded 1/2x28 so any .22 suppressor of smaller diameter than the tube would fit and be legal so long as the tax stamp was paid on the suppressor. It is not a short-barreled rifle, so requires no special treatment. It allows folks in states that prohibit SBRs but allow suppressors to have a non-permanent installation of the can while not adding length to the end of the barrel. Pretty ingenious, if weird looking.
