Desert Tactical Arms Suppressors
The makers of one of the hottest long range rifles on the market is now going to branch out into the suppressor realm. Desert Tactical Arms is now producing suppressors for .30 and .338 caliber rifles. There are plenty of companies putting out suppressors these days, but the thing that caught my eye with the new DTA suppressors is the weight. The new DTSS (Desert Tactical Sound Suppressor) titanium model weighs only 1.15 lbs, which is pretty light for a .338 suppressor, especially for a one made out of titanium.
The new DTSS attaches to Desert Tactical’s patent pending SRS-QD muzzle break with a ratcheting system similar to those found with other suppressor companies. Also, the .338 DTSS can also be used on a .308 rifle, so a shooter can just install the DTA’s SRS-QD on their .338 and/or .308 rifles and use the one suppressor. There is some POI shift when installing the suppressor of about 2 MOA (2″ at 100 yards), but DTA has claimed that their new DTSS suppressors maintain a .25 MOA accuracy while installed on their rifle, so their new suppressors may even enhanced accuracy. Prices vary from $985 for the .308 stainless steel model to around $1900 for the titanium .338 model.
