Here at THUNDER BEAST ARMS CORP, we’re dedicated to building the best precision rifle suppressors on the planet. There are cheaper ways to build suppressors. If what you want is a suppressor whose primary design goals were “quick and inexpensive to manufacture”, then those other suppressors might be a good choice. We set out to build the best, and there are no shortcuts. It takes a dedicated manufacturing team, a lot of expertise, and state of the art CNC machinery to build suppressors like our ULTRA series.
Our manufacturing plant in Cheyenne, WY has batches of all of our suppressor models in-flight in at any given time, and we finish and ship suppressors out on a daily basis.
Right now, due to extraordinary demand in Q4’18 and at SHOT Show earlier in January, we have a pretty long manufacturing backlog. The bad news is that, as of today, “newly submitted” orders have roughly 6-8 months of suppressor orders before them in the build queue.
The good news that our distribution and dealer network has at least some suppressors in stock, and we are shipping orders out all the time to fulfill the orders submitted a little while ago. For example, even with the month of so of Government Shutdown (during which no Form 2’s or 3’s were processed), we are currently shipping orders that were submitted in late November to early December. As a result, our dealer network will get regular shipments of TBAC suppressors, depending on what orders they’ve submitted.
Looking for a particular silencer? We have an online TBAC ONLINE AVAILABILITY TOOL. Besides having general information about how orders are processed and our current stock levels, it also gives a list of dealers who have recently been shipped TBAC suppressors. It also gives a list of dealers who will be receiving TBAC suppressors in the next approx 4-6 weeks (ATF permitting). Furthermore, you can select a silencer model, such as .30 CAL ULTRA 7, and get a list of dealers who have just received, or are about to receive, that model suppressor.
Come see us at the SHOT Show next week, January 22-25 in Las Vegas!
SAME BOOTH NUMBER AS LAST YEAR: 10075.
We are in the far south-east corner of Level 2 (the large main floor). This is the “top left” on the SHOT Show Floor Plan Map. If you know where MAGPUL is, we are just a couple rows past.
During the week of Jan 22-25, please email us for orders and questions. Our staff will be manning our booth at SHOT and we will have limited staff available to answer the phones back at the home office.
We will be accepting 338 ULTRA SR and TBAC BIPOD orders starting when the show opens on Tuesday (8:30). If you want to order one of these but aren’t at the show, please email us no earlier than 8:30 PST Tuesday.
We’ve been kicking around the idea of a bipod for half a decade; in 2017 we tasked our R&D engineers to start working on it. We combined the ideas from each of our “favorite” bipods, optimized them for actual field usage models, added a few new innovations and good ideas, and then tested the hell out of it for over a year. The result is what we just call the TBAC Bipod.
We will be accepting TBAC BIPOD orders starting at SHOT Show 2019. The first units should be available in approximately March. We will not accept orders, pre-orders, or backorders until then.
Our partial 2019 training schedule is now available! 2019 TBAC Training Group Schedule. Come shoot with our principal instructor Brian Whalen and learn the ins and outs of practical long-range field shooting at any level!
We are pleased to announce the new 338 ULTRA SR suppressor. This is the first suppressor to feature our “SR” mount. The SR mount is our “QD” style mount that maintains the absolute accuracy and repeatability standards we are known for while offering more rapid mounting and removal and featuring a Secondary Retention (“SR”) or “Locking” collar. This mount meets the mil spec represented in the 2017 Advanced Sniper Rifle (ASR) solicitication, and the 338 ULTRA SR is the suppressor that Accuracy International North America chose for their ASR rifle system submission.
The main feature of the SR mount is that it acts as a secondary, fail-safe, locking mechanism to retain the suppressor on the muzzle brake in all circumstances, unless explicitly removed on purpose, by hand. It also reduces the number of turns required to mount the suppressor due to a coarser thread and enables “Quick Mount” and “Quick Detach” functionality of the mount. The mount is mechanically very simply and user-level maintenance is possible.
HOW OUR MOUNT IS DIFFERENT
The SR mount uses a novel paw and cam-path system to ensure that “full lock up” can happen in either of the two adjacent detent slots for any given final shouldering position of the suppressor on the conical brake shoulder. This categorically avoids the “off by one” problem that many “clicky” mounts have. The SR mount has the exact same accuracy, repeatability, and return-to-zero characteristics that all our precision suppressors are known for.
This mounting system is covered by US Patent 9,791,234.
For more details, please visit the 338 ULTRA SR Product Page.
The 338 ULTRA SR will be offered for sale starting the first morning of the 2019 SHOT Show (Jan 22nd). We will not accept orders, pre-orders, or backorders until then. We have a considerable stock of these available but after that initial stock is depleted, additional orders will be subject to our normal production backlog.
