Thunder Beast 223A Suppressor
The model 223A is our full-auto suppressor for 5.56 mm NATO assault rifles. It is designed for extreme durability and high heat loads from full-auto and burst firing schedules. The 223A is ideal for short-barrelled rifle ("SBR") format fighting carbines and M4/M16 pattern rifles, as well as AR-15's that will be used with a high rate of fire.
The 223A was developed specifically for the 7.5-inch Sabre Defence Industries Stealth SBR.
The 223A is made of 316 stainless steel and inconel and features a full-welded baffle core for durability. It has a length of 6.8 inches, 0.4 less than the 223P, to keep over-all length of the carbine relatively short. Muzzle blast concussion is eliminated and the recoil impulse is reduced and smoothed over time. The 223A improves the accuracy of most rifles. It is sealed and requires no maintenance.
The 223A is ideal for fighting carbines including full-auto applications.

I am ready to purchase a suppressor now what do I need to do?
Once you have decided on the suppressor you want to purchase go to class 3 dealer in your state to begin the tax stamp transfer process. Your Class III dealer can walk you through this process. There is a 200.00 transfer tax required by the ATFE for Class III transfers to private individuals. During the tax stamp transfer process, you'll need to get finger printed, have passport photos taken and get the Chief Local Law Enforcement Officer's signature on the ATFE Form 4. These items are not required if the silencer is being transferred to a corporation or a trust. This process is called a Form 4 transfer. This process generally takes 4 to 6 months. Once your suppressor is approved for transfer your dealer will receive that paperwork and inform you suppressor is ready to be transferred. When you receive your new suppressor and use it you will wonder why you ever shot without one.
