The latest from the guys at Thunderbeast are the new Ultra series of suppressors. Given their success in the long range shooting competition scene and improving on their already proven cans I was very excited to check these out. Today, we take a look at the Ultra 7, the “mid size” unit in the lineup.
Featuring full titanium construction and a fully welded core and helical baffling and even lighter weight than their predecessors.
You have the option of either direct thread or mounting to a brake or flash hider that attaches with a conical mating surface to ensure that alignment and bore concentricity are maintained. Thunderbeast suppressors are known for their consistent, repeatable POI and not relying on ratchet systems to lock up tight definitely help in this regard.
Our testing absolutely bore this out. POI shift was negligible and consistent. The light weight of the Ultra 7 helps mitigate downward shift, especially on a light barrel.
We did not meter this can as frankly I don’t feel it’s THAT important, heresy to some. But I get to try a LOT of cans and if they are the same dimensions (length and diameter) and from a good maker they are all almost indistinguishable.
Shorter cans are more maneuverable in tight quarters and longer ones are quieter. No magic there.
The Thunderbeast Ultra 7 was right in line with others in it’s class. What I really like is the light weight, minimal POI shift and consistent performance on target.
