TBAC 22 TAKE DOWN NAMED RECOIL MAGAZINE'S EDITOR'S PICK

Posted By: Zak Smith on June 10, 2017

Our new 22 TAKE DOWN .22 LR suppressor has just been named EDITOR’S PICK by RECOIL MAGAZINE in their article, RECOIL Rated: 10 Rimfire Cans (May 25, 2017)

TBAC has long been known for building the best precision rifle suppressors on the market. We’ve brought that level of suppression expertise to the .22 with the 22 TAKE DOWN. This multi-purpose suppressor works great on pistols and rifles chambered in .22 LR, .22 WMR, .17 HMR, 5.7×28, and similar calibers.

The 22 TAKE DOWN meters extremely well– it is quieter than almost all other .22 suppressors on the market. It is also one of the few rated for 5.7 pistols and most other very small centerfire cartridges. It is user-serviceable and may be easily taken completely apart by the end user. The 22 TAKE DOWN has the same accuracy and repeatability that you expect from our ULTRA series of centerfire suppressors.

We have these in stock and ready to Form 3. Please give us a call with any questions!

6.5 ULTRA 5

Posted By: Zak Smith on January 25, 2017

Due to customer requests, we’re now taking orders for 6.5 ULTRA 5’s. The Ultra 5 is our super compact (5″, 7.6 ounces) rifle suppressor, for when minimum size and weight is the highest priority, but decent suppression is still required. The 6.5mm version will be approximate 2-3 dB quieter than the .30 cal ULTRA 5 when used on 6mm and 6.5mm cartridge such as .243, 6.5 Creedmoor, or .260. Contact us or your dealer to order.

TBAC "RECORE" PROGRAM

Posted By: Zak Smith on November 16, 2016

The TBAC “Recore” program provides a way to upgrade select legacy TBAC suppressors to the most current ULTRA series baffles and construction.

The Recore will replace the baffle core and both endcaps but it will retain your original suppressor tube. The performance of the suppressor will mimic the suppression and cartridge ratings of the respective ULTRA core that it was upgraded to. Its weight will generally be an average of the original model’s weight and the new ULTRA model’s weight. The Recore program will be implemented using our RMA process.

Ultras and 22 Takedowns available!

Posted By: Zak Smith on September 29, 2016

TBAC Backlog Slayed – New orders that go in today will have serial numbers assigned in about two weeks!

At TBAC we’ve had a pretty long backlog for a while due to the demand for the Ultras and 22TD’s. Through the hard work of our foreman and production staff, along with significant investment in more high-end CNC equipment and hiring, we are just about up to date now– and producing at a rate that far eclipses what we could build just a year ago. Orders that go in today should have serial numbers assigned in “about two weeks”.

Q4 is usually the best time to get orders in for minimum production delay. The worst time is just after SHOT Show because that is when dealers and distributors put in very large orders.

Silencer Locator Tool - Now Even Better!

Posted By: Zak Smith on March 24, 2016

A week ago we rolled out our Silencer Availability Tool to help find a suppressor in our dealer and distributor network.

We’ve just enhanced this tool so that you can select the type of suppressor you’re looking for (for example, 6.5 ULTRA 9, 338 ULTRA, etc) and it will tell you all the dealers who have recently been shipped that type of suppressor, in addition to the dealers who have them on order and you might be able to get your name on one.

TBAC Silencer Availability Tool Online

Posted By: Zak Smith on March 15, 2016

Here at THUNDER BEAST ARMS CORP, we’re dedicated to building the best precision rifle suppressors on the planet.

All our products are in continuous production. We have batches of virtually all suppressor models in process at different stages of production at all times. There is a manufacturing backlog and we typically do not have silencers just sitting on the shelf.

We’ve put together an online tool to help customers and dealers understand our current production status, how long it takes to get “new” serial numbers at any given time, and a list of dealers who have just been shipped suppressors, and a list of those who have them on order. The fastest way to get a suppressor is to get one from a dealer who has one in stock or has one on order that he can put your name on.

We will be accepting the first orders the first morning of the SHOT Show.

Warranty Registration Drawing Winner!

Posted By: Zak Smith on January 8, 2016

This last fall, we rolled out our MyTBAC Warranty Registration tool. It helps to ensure you get the best warranty service and are kept up to date with any notices about your suppressors. Part of the incentive to register your TBAC warranty is to be entered into a quarterly drawing for a free suppressor.

This quarter’s winner was Bo from Snohomish, WA and he will have the option of any suppressor including the new 22 TAKE DOWN or 338 ULTRA. Congratulations Bo!

If you have TBAC suppressors and haven’t logged them into the MyTBAC tool yet, go ahead and do it now! We’ll have a drawing every quarter from the pool of warranties registered in that time period. Link to MyTBAC Portal

TBAC 22 "TAKE DOWN" SUPPRESSOR ANNOUNCED!

Posted By: Zak Smith on January 6, 2016

ANNOUNCING TBAC’s FIRST TAKE-APART SUPPRESSOR!

The 22 TAKE DOWN is our next-generation .22LR suppressor. This multi-purpose can works great on pistols and rifles chambered in .22 LR, .22 WMR, .17 HMR, 5.7×28, and similar calibers. The 22 TAKE DOWN is 2-3 dB quieter than the 22L-1, which is widely regarded as one of the quietest .22 suppressors on the market.

It’s 5.6″x1.0″ and weighs 5.9 ounces. It is user-serviceable and may be easily taken completely apart by the end user.

The 22 TAKE DOWN will be priced at $395 and we will be accepting the first orders at the SHOT SHOW. Production will start just after SHOT SHOW.

338 ULTRA ANNOUNCEMENT

Posted By: Zak Smith on December 3, 2015

We are pleased to announce the availability of the 338 ULTRA suppressor. The 338 ULTRA follows the development of the .30 cal ULTRA 5/7/9 and the 6.5 mm cal ULTRA 7/9 and applies the ULTRA suppression technology to the big-bore .338 Lapua Magnum.

The 338 ULTRA replaces the 338BA suppressor. Compared to the 338BA, the 338 ULTRA is 2-3 dB quieter, 33% lighter (16.9 ounces), and much stronger. Sound levels on a typical bolt-action .338 Lapua rifle are 135-138 dB.

The new 338 ULTRA is rated for .338 Lapua Magnum barrel lengths down to 16 inches.

The strength increases are due to design changes (ULTRA baffles), an upgrade to all grade 5 Titanium baffles and grade 9 tubing, and improved welding technology. All of our ULTRA suppressors are welded using robotic welders under real-time computer control that produce 100% penetration perfect welds, without overheating, every time.

The 338 ULTRA is backwards compatible with all existing 338 BA muzzle brakes. The new 338 BA muzzle brakes have been updated to the “CB brake” styling and have improved brake efficiency.

The price has not changed. The 338 ULTRA has a $1795 MSRP.

Production has already began, so get your orders in!

Do I need a 6.5mm brake for my 6.5 Ultra 7 or 9?

Posted By: Zak Smith on September 29, 2015

Since we’ve come out with the 6.5mm Ultra 7 and 9, several people have asked us if we offer a 6.5mm-specific CB Brake to match. The answer is no. Here’s why.

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to help Cal Zant with his comprehensive Comprehensive scientific review of precision rifle muzzle brakes. One of the specific results he found was that the difference in recoil reduction on 6.5 mm from a .30 cal to 6.5 mm cal aperture was about 1-3%:

I ran tests to see how much it mattered if a muzzle brake was caliber-specific, and those results were also surprising. I tested the effectiveness of having a caliber-specific brake on 4 very different muzzle brake designs that I had in all calibers: the APA Little B*, Holland 1.25” Radial QD Brake, Impact Precision Brake, and West Texas Ordnance Brake. I only found an improvement of 1-3% if a brake was 6mm rather than 30 caliber (7.62mm).

To be clear, I tried the 6mm, 6.5mm, and 30 caliber brakes all on the 6XC, and in all 4 muzzle brake designs, there was only a difference of 1-3% in recoil reduction in terms of both overall momentum and peak force. That surprised me. I expected the caliber size of the bullet hole in the brake to make more of a difference. But, that’s why I actually run the tests and don’t just talk about this stuff!

In our application, that 1-3% of difference in recoil reduction would only be applicable when the suppressor was not mounted. Here is a tech note that that effect.

With the suppressor mounted over the brake, the 6.5mm-specific suppressor baffle apertures capture as much gas as possible to give the additional suppression. That’s the part that makes a 6.5mm Ultra 7 about the same dB as a .30 cal Ultra 9 when shot on a .260 Rem or 6.5 Creedmoor.

Based on this, we do not offer a separate “6.5mm” CB brake at this time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call or shoot us an email.

Announcing the 6.5 ULTRA 7 & 9

Posted By: Zak Smith on August 18, 2015

Again, you asked for it and we built it. We are happy to introduce two new additions to the ULTRA family: The 6.5 mm ULTRA 7 & 9. These are identical to their .30 cal siblings in appearance, weight, and length. The difference is that when shooting 6.5 mm cartridges (or smaller), the 6.5 mm ULTRAs will provide an additional level of sound suppression.

For example, shooting .260 Rem mag loads, the 6.5 mm ULTRA 7 has the same or more sound reduction as the normal .30 cal ULTRA 9. With the 6.5 mm ULTRA 9 on a .260, the level of suppression is approx 2-3 dB better than the .30 cal ULTRA 9. The prices will match the .30 cal ULTRA 7 and 9 prices.

Ultra production has been scaled up significantly over the last seven months to match the high level of demand. Right now we are about eight weeks out on production. We are taking 6.5 mm ULTRA orders immediately.

For those of you with .30 cal ULTRAs already on order, if we have not yet built your suppressor, it can be switched to the 6.5 mm version.

ULTRA Series Production Update

Posted By: Zak Smith on March 30, 2015

We know everyone’s excited to get their hands on a new Ultra suppressor– here’s an update!

The Ultras were announced at SHOT with full production predicted to be April. We are a little ahead of schedule; full production started the week before last. Right now Form 3’s are taking around 45-60 days.

There has been a lot of demand for the Ultras so there is a backlog. We are fulfilling orders and filing forms in “first come first served” order, ie, based on the date the orders were received. Nobody likes the backlog. We are addressing that, in part, by adding another shift to get these cranked out faster.

Precision Rifle Blog article on Ultra Series

Posted By: Zak Smith on February 20, 2015

Cal Zant, over at the Precision Rifle Blog, has put together a really good overview of the Ultra series which we released at SHOT Show. Click Here to go to the Precision Rifle Blog and read, “Better, Smaller, Lighter: The New ThunderBeast Suppressors”

ThunderBeast has been the most popular rifle suppressor among the top 50 shooters in the Precision Rifle Series for the past 3 years in a row (see the data). In fact, of the shooters who suppressed their rifles, 1 in 3 chose a ThunderBeast can this past year. Thunder Beast Arms Corporation (TBAC) was founded and is ran by practical/tactical rifle competitors obsessed with long-range accuracy. Many believe they make the best precision rifle suppressors money can buy.

Introducing the ULTRA Series - SHOT 2015

Posted By: Zak Smith on January 14, 2015

We built our reputation on making suppressors that were ideal for precision and long-range rifle shooting. As shooters, we only build products that we would take to the field or to competition. The 30P-1, 30BA, and 30 CB series have set the standard for precision rifle suppressor performance. They are a hard act to follow.

Jan-2015-3x5-CardFront

We are pleased to announce our new ULTRA Series suppressors.

What is the ULTRA Series? Simple: we took everything great about the 30P-1 and 30CB9 and then made them lighter, quieter, and stronger.

The ULTRA Series now represents the lightest 9-inch, 7-inch, and 5-inch .30 caliber suppressors on the market. The ULTRA 9 weighs 11.9 ounces. The ULTRA 7 weighs 9.7 ounces. And the ULTRA 5 weighs 7.6 ounces.

That’s not all. While we were at it, we improved the suppression performance to class-leading levels. The ULTRA 9 and 7 are 4-5 dB quieter than the 30CB9 and 30CB7 (30P-1 and 30PS). The ULTRA 5 is 7-8 dB quieter than the 30CB5/30PSS. The new ULTRA 7 is quieter than the old 30P-1/30CB9.

They are available in either our Compact Brake (CB) “Thread Over Muzzle Brake” (TOMB) mount or in a direct thread mount. The CB mount and direct thread mount have equivalent accuracy and repeatability. The .30 caliber ULTRA series suppressors also have the flexibility to be changed from direct thread to CB mount and vice versa via a simple factory service operation, in case your needs change.

THE ULTRA 7 (FDE Finish)

TBAC most popular suppressor in 2014 PRS

Posted By: Zak Smith on December 22, 2014

For the third year in a row, TBAC suppressors have been the most popular used in the Precision Rifle Series (PRS), as measured by a survey of the top-50 competitors. This year one in three top-50 competitors used a TBAC precision rifle suppressor!

On top again this year, Thunder Beast Arms Corp. (TBAC) suppressors were the most popular choice among the top shooters in the country. Of the top 50 shooters running suppressed, 1 in 3 chose a Thunder Beast suppressor. That is quite a statement. The TBAC 30P-1 is their flagship product for precision rifles, and can be spotted at most precision rifle competitions. I explained a few of the advantages of Thunder Beast suppressors in a recent post on my Custom 6XC Precision Rifle Build.

Students will be split into very small groups and then guided along a field shooting course used previously as a competitive field shooting course.

Brian Whalen will be the primary instructor. For more information about our training, please check out the TBAC Training web page

Flash Hider for CB Series Suppressors

Posted By: Zak Smith on August 19, 2014

We’re proud to unveil our new TBAC “CB” Series Flash Hider. It is a mount for all TBAC Compact Brake (“CB”) series suppressors, including the 223CB, 30CB5, 30CB7, and 30CB9.

The TBAC CB Flash Hider provides excellent flash suppression characteristics when the suppressor is not mounted.

The TBAC CB Flash Hider is ideal for .223, .308, or .300 Blackout, when your CB or BA series suppressor cannot be used for whatever reason.

We came up with a novel design that has the flash-suppression advantages of distinct “tines” but does not “ring” when shot or impacted like other “tined” or “pronged” flash hiders on the market.

Initially, we have the .223/5.56mm versions available with 1/2-28 threads and the .30 caliber version available with 5/8-24 threads. Other thread patterns will be available in the future.

For more information, photos, and flash comparisons, or to order, please check out its web page, TBAC CB Flash Hiders

CB Brakes Now Available to Order!

Posted By: Zak Smith on August 18, 2014

We now have 223CB and 30CB brakes available for ordering online.

These are coating with Ionbond DLC (monocolor dark gray) and include a peel washer for installation.

In addition, the CB2BA Adapters are now in-stock. These semi-permanently convert a BA series suppressor to accept CB series muzzle devices.

Both of these products can be ordered online on the TBAC ALL ACCEESSORIES page.

BA to CB Brake Upgrade Program

Posted By: Zak Smith on August 4, 2014

We are announcing a “BA to CB” brake upgrade program in which customers with “new” BA brakes may return those BA brakes in exchange for a 223CB or 30CB brake.

TBAC 30CB Brake

The first of our new CB series of suppressors is about to clear ATF and start shipping to dealers. This new series of suppressors features a more compact muzzle brake which looks better than our old brake. The new CB brake also offers approximately 40% more braking efficiency when shot without the suppressor mounted. Although customers of our original 30BA line still have a very good suppressor mount, we’ve received a lot of questions about using the new brakes with the cans you already have (or are waiting on Form 4’s).

To use an original 30BA or 338BA suppressor with our new 223CB or 30CB brakes, the new CB series brake must be used in conjunction with our CB-to-BA adapter (part number CB2BA). This adapter may be purchased on our web site and once semi-permanently installed in your 30BA suppressor, converts your BA series suppressor to accept the new CB mounts.

To qualify for the BA Brake Upgrade program:

1. The BA brake must be NEW, UNFIRED, and CLEAN. We cannot accept returns of used brakes.
2. You must include the original, unused peel washer.
3. Write us a note that includes your contact information: NAME, PHONE NUMBER, EMAIL, and MAILING ADDRESS
4. Send us the brake, peel washer, original packaging, note.
5. Include $6.00 for return shipping (check or money order)
6. Track the package to ensure it gets delivered to us

Please send the package to:
TBAC, Attn BA/CB
8214 Hutchins Dr.
Cheyenne, WY, 82007

The first batch of CB brakes was allocated to the initial CB series suppressor orders. The next batch is due to arrive back from Ionbond the week of August 18-22th. You may send in your packages before then, but that week is the earliest they will ship.

We will try to keep CB brakes in all thread patterns in stock, but a 1-3 week delay is possible if we get sold out of the one you need. If you are in a rush to get the new brake back, please call us for advice before sending in your brake.

In addition, we have a flash-hider “CB” series mount coming out very soon. These will be available for .223 and .30 caliber. If you want to exchange your BA brake for a flash hider instead, please hold off until they are available.

The CB-to-BA adapters are available here: TBAC CB2BA Adapters

If you have any questions about this upgrade program, the new CB series suppressors and muzzle devices, or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact us on the phone or via email.

Ionbond DLC to be used for the new CB Brakes

Posted By: Zak Smith on July 24, 2014

We’re happy to announce that the new CB series muzzle brakes will be coated with Ionbond DLC. Ionbond DLC provides a consistent and good-looking finish that also has a very high surface hardness. It will last longer and be more durable than Black Oxide. The first batch of CB brakes should be available next week.

New Compact Brake "CB" Series of Suppressors

Posted By: Zak Smith on May 7, 2014

You asked for it, so we built it!

We are pleased to announce our new Compact Brake (“CB”) and a series of .223 and .30 caliber suppressors that utilize it.

Even though the mount on the old 30BA was rock solid, everyone knew it was too big and ugly a brake for most .223 and .30 caliber rifles. You asked for a smaller brake, and now we’ve delivered.

Understanding thread pitch and thread gauging

Posted By: Zak Smith on April 24, 2014

Two question on just about every person’s mind are, “Are my existing muzzle threads OK?” and “Who can thread my muzzle and what are the specs?” We’ve started to put together some instructional videos to explain thread fit and how we verify that our threads and in-spec.
