Zak's been busy. His suppressor company has grown to around 40 employees so he's not moderating all that much any more, but I'm happy for him. (He also teaches a solid long-range shooting school that's now teaching in New Mexico, rather than in Wyoming where it was when I went.) Anyway, ThunderBeast makes no-compromise suppressors designed for precision applications. It was nice to catch up. The big news this year: TBAC has enough capacity to fill orders immediately. Most exciting to me was last years' news that there's now a 6.5mm can available, the Ultra. Centerfire suppressors are available in 5, 7, and 9 inch lengths. The longer the can, the better the performance and the higher the weight. Max length for the .223 is 7 inches, and the full auto can is what it is (and has always been) because dealing with heat from full-auto SBRs has its own sets of demands. If you've got older models like the 30P-1 then you should know the newer models are a few decibels quieter, and flash suppressor adapters as shown in these photos are now available.
