I wanted to replace the T8 on my .270 with something a bit lighter and the Thirdeye Spartan popped up on the radar.
Initial investigations looked good so I went down to EVO engineering to pick one up.
Craig the owner of EVO/thirdeye is a keen stalker and a bit of an engineering whizz by all accounts. He was just reviewing an article on on a buggati W16 motor that had some of his parts in when I turned up
The mod is a very nice bit of kit, and appears very well thought out. It is both shorter and narrower in diameter that a T8, weight is about 250g's lighter. This Doesn't sound much but when fitted to the rifle there is no comparison. The handling and balance is hugely improved. The rifle no longer feels muzzle heavy!
The mod is made from Aircraft grade alloy and is fully stripable. A Neat key is provided for this purpose.
Starting at the muzzle end is an over barrel bush (a non overbarrel version is available) and a stainless muzzle brake type baffle arrangement which is designed to reduce recoil. There are then a series of alloy baffles, all of which have stainless inserts to prevent gas cutting and improve longevity.
The muzzle cap also includes a baffle and expansion chamber.
