We have discovered a welding fault present in a small fraction of the suppressors in some batches of Dominus and Ultra Gen2 suppressors
that were manufactured in 2020.

We are recalling, for evaluation and, if necessary, repair, some batches of Ultra Gen2 and Dominus suppressors.

If a suppressor with the fault present is fired, one of the last couple welds may fail, causing it to lose, usually, the endcap and the
last baffle. If this happens, the suppressor is still easily repairable. Our goal is to intercept and test all suppressors in affected
batches, and repair those where the fault is present.

We have a fast, non-destructive method to test suppressors for the presence of this fault. All suppressors that fail this test will be
repaired or replaced depending on the "Form" status.

If you have a suppressor affected by this recall, please do not fire it until it's been evaluated.

If you have one of the following serial numbers, please proceed to https://thunderbeastarms.com/g2recall and plug in your specific
serial number to determine if your supprssor needs evaluation.

ULTRA GEN2 with serial number between C40001 - C42000

DOMINUS-SR, CB, and K-SR with serial number between C30001 - C42000
also C10001-C10013; C10075-C10079; C20615

Hey Zak,

This is amazing CS. Appreciate the email I just got and your post here. My Dominus K-SR is affected but still waiting on a form 4. Per your site, I will need my SOT/FFL to submit the paperwork and RMA the suppressor. Would it be easier to just wait for my form 4 and let me handle? thanks!

Hi,

To confirm, yes, if you are still waiting on the Form 4, the dealer is possessing it on a Form 3, and he would have to send it to us with his paperwork (Form 3 + FFL/SOT + RMA), and we'd return it to him, and then it sits as usual until the Form 4 clears.

Alternatively, you can wait until the Form 4 clears and you get it, and then send it in. In this case, you would submit the RMA and include your paperwork (DL + Form 4 + RMA), and we'd send it back to you directly.

It really doesn't matter either way, other than what is more convenient for your and/or your FFL.

Damn, my Dom SR is in the recall. Still waiting on my form 4.

Thanks for reaching out Zac - hope this goes smooth for all.

    Interesting that they say easily repairable, but may be replaced depending on Form status. If they replaced it that would start the clock all over again. Waaaaaah!

    So do we ask for a RMA and you send a shipping label to our holding dealer for those of us awaiting Form 4?

    The intention here is to repair all the ones that already have a Form 4 filed because they can't be easily replaced, and comp the end users who are stuck in this situation and end up with a can with a minor weld mark. The ones that are still sitting in inventory on Form 3's can be swapped out for new ones with a couple of Form 3's. But this only applies to units that fail our inspection/test, which will be a very small fraction of them.

    Regarding the RMA form - what is the "Approved Form 4 Number"? Is this the 2021xxxxx number from the cover page? I know I'm gonna feel dumb when someone points out what is probably obvious to the blind, but I've been staring at this thing for the past several minutes and cannot figure out what's being requested.

    I got the email last night. Going to forward it to my SOT since they just cashed my check on March 5th. Not going to keep me from using it since I probably have 6-8 months before my stamp is approved.

    We need the RMA to be from the entity that currently possesses it. In your case that would be the dealer.
    OK. So I need to call the Entity and ask them to ask you for a RMA and you will direct them to a downloadable return shipping label? Can they call you to make it more simple (Phone number please)? My Entity turned out to be rather grumpy with the initial transfer and I don't like doing business with them.

    If you want to babysit the process, you can fill out the RMA on their behalf, with their information, and then we'll send the shipping label to them. At that point all they'd have to do it include a copy of the FFL/SOT and their Form 3, and you'd include a printed out copy of the RMA, and send it off on the UPS label we sent. https://thunderbeastarms.com/g2recall

    If they are super curmudgeonly, you can always wait and send it yourself, either way it will be a fast turnaround

    Have can within range. Have shot 600 rounds through it, no issues. Shot more Wednesday morning prior to receiving the e-mail. Short 16" .308 and .223 semi auto. Is there a need to still return it?

    @jackinfl I am in the same boat as you. I have 3 matches and as many range sessions with the Dominus and no issues. Probably ~400-500 rounds on it if 6BR and .308. Sent it in anyway this morning, best case it checks out and get it back soon with the assurance it won’t become a mortar anytime soon 🤣

    It's possible for "easy" loads to not create enough pressure in the last baffle area to expose the fault, depending on some factors, so that's why we still want to do our inspection.

    The vast majority of these are good, and it's an even better indicator if you've shot a bunch of rounds, but we still want to check them out 100%.

    This is a bummer but seeing how mine is still in jail I guess it won't change much even if it should need a repair. Now to get ahold of my FFL lol.

    For "passing" cans, we are having to repaint about half of these that come in, to make sure they look perfect when they go out again. This may add a few days to the turnaround of some of them. Just FYI
    Mine’s been there a few days. Do you just mail it back or should I expect a message?
