View Full Version : Thunderbeast .22 Supressor

August 6, 2008, 08:22 PM
Just got one in from Zak Smith.. we are putting it on a Blaser .22 Rifle and on his advice, we bought the short can.

It weighs virtually nothing. The customer couldnt stand the pressure of waiting, so we screwed it on to a Ruger Mk II pistol, which normally has a Gemtech Outback II.

Shot them side by side. Unscientifically (meaning ear wise), Zaks is noticeably quieter first shot and thereafter.

If you want a can for your .22 (or centerfire), Zaks is the way to go, even forgetting about tha fact that he is a member here and will make sure you get the best service.

According to specs, it's heavier than the Outback II or the AAC Pilot so they must really be light then.

Thanks, Wildalaska. Glad you like it.

There are lots of good rimfire cans out there, no question. There is some feature differentiation in the field, so a person can pretty much buy exactly the feature set they want.

What was the reasoning or sales point that suggested the short can instead of the longer can?

I told him it's hard to tell the difference between the two for loudness and the shorter one is obviously smaller and lighter, and that the demo can I shoot all the time is the "short" one vs. the long one.

And since Zak is one of the few folks in the shooting world I defer to, I followed his advice :)
