Once upon a time, a small country allied to the US needed a lightweight, inexpensive silencer for their special purpose bolt action rifles. Gemtech won the contract to provide that silencer. When the project was completed, Gemtech had a lightweight inexpensive design that could fit a variety of commercial uses. With a slight redesign, the Gemtech Tracker was born.
Thunder Beast Arms Corporation just announced a program for owners to upgrade their 338P and 338P-1 suppressors to the new 338BA internals. Thunder Beast states that the upgrade will be done at no charge and with minimal delay! We love to see companies that take care of existing owners. If you want more info on the upgrade program, contact TBAC at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 307-287-2052.
SilencerCo recently released this really slick looking infograpghic demonstrating how silencers (or suppressors if you please) work. The graphic notes that silencer ownership has doubled since 2011. Unfortunately there is still a lot of misunderstanding about silencers. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard people say that silencers are illegal or that only police and military are allowed to have them. Education is key. Adding a silencer to a rifle or a pistol simply makes the firearm safer to use and more enjoyable for all involved!
We were at the range today wrapping up some testing on the Bushnell Elite Tactical XRS 4.5-30x50mm rifle scope. Since it will still be a week or two before we are ready to release the full review, I though we would give you guys a really short teaser video showing how to use the T-Lok turrets in a competition environment.
You will note that I leave the bolt open when transitioning between targets. This is a technique used in competition shooting. It does not translate to the real world. In the real world, you want to bolt up a fresh cartridge as soon as possible.
Enjoy the video and don’t worry, when we do the full review we will cover setting the Z-Lok Zero Stop.
Almost eleven months after paying for it, I walked out of my local FFL with the Thunder Beast Arms Corp. 30P-1 Suppressor. I can tell you that the wait was worth it.
The next day after picking it up, I was able to sneak out to the range for a short test run. The only bolt rifle that was threaded at the correct pitch AND had ammo on the shelf was the Remington 700 AAC-SD in a Cadex Chassis. I was slightly concerned because the 700 AAC-SD has not been a stellar performer. Continue reading Thunder Beast Arms 30P-1 Initial Impressions→
In anticipation of their first series of CB Suppressors shipping, Thunder Beast Arms Corp. (TBAC) has announced a trade-in program for owners of new/unused BA series brakes.
The new CB brakes are advertised to be smaller, more attractive and 40% more efficient.
TBAC has also created a “CB-to-BA” Adapter for owners of BA series suppressors who wish to use the new CB brakes with their current suppressor. If you are hoping for a new CB series flash suppressor, sit tight. TBAC is working on it.
