Curious as to what machines. CNC machinist here. Would love to see a shop tour somewhat like NYCCNC does.Hi,
The computer-estimate ETA's for the Dominuses right now will not be accurate. They are still good for the Ultras. The 22TD's are generally available within a much shorter timeframe.
The Dominuses require some new, large CNC machinery for production, different from and beyond what the Ultras use. The machinery has been on-site for months now. As some of you know, big machines like this require a factory tech to "turn on" the first time and do initial training. This was originally supposed to happen in late Feb / early March, which is how we got our original estimate of "mid to late April" for the first possible dealers having some (IE, we allowed a conservative 4-6 weeks after machine turn-on to get the first batches done). Since the lock downs and travel restrictions have come into play, the original turn-on and training schedule was delayed and everyone is trying to figure out a way to do it "remotely." As a result, we are probably at least a month or a little longer behind schedule on the first production Dominuses. Once we get that turned on and get the first batch or two out the door, the computer ETA's for the Dominuses will become accurate. If you have an ETA which was not before June, your ETA is unlikely to be affected very much. That is unless the coronavirus situation deteriorates and there are more local or national shutdowns that affect our ability to get material or let our employees work safely. At this time, our production rate of Ultras, etc, has not been downgraded.
The 1/2-28 brakes weren't in production when we did the life cycle testing on the suppressors. Those are thread adapters so we could use the 5/8 brakes we had on hand. We don't recommend using thread adapters if can be avoided as it adds another thread interface to the system. However for life cycle testing where everything is going to be taken to failure the thread adapters work just fine. SR brakes ship with the same peel washer we all know and love.Zak in the video the spacers behind the brake is a different design.. Can you tell us if this is what you are going to or are you still using the peel washer design?
At best, you get batch processed where they’d take all your Form 1’s and do them at same time. The same could happen with your Form 4’s. There’s zero chance the Form 4’s and Form 1’s would be grouped together and done. I suspect that the Form 1 lackeys and the Form 4 lackeys don’t communicate and there’s no way for one side to know if the other side has stuff from you.Just got through a grueling multi-hour fight with the ATF e-File website -- talk about torture!
Filed for 4 more suppressors based upon Maverick Talon tubes that just shipped and a group buy for cups on the F1 forums. Also added a couple of SBRs to turn my SP5K into a suppressed PCC and my Noveske N4 Infidel with 13.7" barrel into a suppressed SBR. I ordered 3 TBAC Ultra 9's from MH last Friday and the Form-3 and shipping just happened today, so my wait will begin next week when I go back into my FFL (was in there today taking delivery of my factory-new KAC SR-25 ACC) and do my F4's on the 3 Ultra 9's.
My question is: I've only done one Form-1 ever (NOV 2019), and this is also my first Form-4. I just pushed through six (6) Form-1's tonight. Will this hurt me in any way? Will my F1's take longer because of running 6 at once, or might they contribute to any delay in my forthcoming Form-4's next week? Or is this all "behind-the-curtain" BATFE Wizard of Oz shenanigans and there's no way of knowing?
The shoulder less thread pitch of an SR25 won’t play nice with a Dominus SR. SR25s time off the muzzle, and the Thunderbeast SR brake can’t be internally shimmed to time it off the muzzle.Think I’m gonna order two Dominus SR tomorrow. One to leave on my bolt gun and one to play with on my SR15’s/SR-25. Will update after I call.
TBAC does custom muzzle indexing CB brakes, they might do that for the SR brake. I’d give them a call to confirm.The shoulder less thread pitch of an SR25 won’t play nice with a Dominus SR. SR25s time off the muzzle, and the Thunderbeast SR brake can’t be internally shimmed to time it off the muzzle.
I have a 338SR, SR25, and I ran into this issue.
Im hoping Thunderbeast makes a run of brakes that would work if enough SR25 owners chime in, but there probably aren’t that many that own a SR25, and less of those that choose to not use a KAC QDC.
any dealers that you'd recommend me look for dominus sr's?A few teething problems getting the Dominus line online; once they start to roll, they will roll fast. I apologize for the delays. Our production rate is up 40% since April, with a lot more to come.
