    Just tried out my latest purchase, made by ThirdEye (EVO Engineering & Design) in .308.

    Extremely well made out of stainlesss and aluminium, weighs around 400 grammes, operates on the reflex system but 8 1/2 inches long which is about 3 1/2 inches shorter than my .243 Wildcat Predator and at 40mm lot narrower, really looks good and doesn't alter the balance too much.

    Sound attenuation is OK, now I don't need ear protection for my .308. Cheaper than the Predator also.

    It is now fully dis assembled in a bath of warm water and soap flakes for the next hour.

    I have no connection with the manufacturer other than an impressed customer - they couldn't be nicer or more accommodating when I called to pick it up and waited while they prepared the back bush.

    Hi Tony,

    I've been looking at these mod's and they are on the shortlist.

    Since your post in August, how have you found the performance in the field etc?

    Haven't read many reviews of these but they do seem like cracking Mods

    Cheers

    Hi

    would also be interested in your views. I'm just waiting to get one fitted to my .308.
    Hoping I've made the right decision, been undecided for a year, I have been waiting to see if any decent titanium ones turned up.

    could you give an idea of sound attenuation / weight / of the Spartan compared to other brands - I am looking for a new mod in 30 cal and this is on my list of possibles.

    Any idea what is the max diameter barrel that the unit will accept, the rifle its intended for has a .900" muzzle?

    Thanks,


    yes I do deal with Craig (top man) but wasn't aware of these mods - I am now and its always good to have someones opinion who er, "isnt afraid to pull punches"


    I am more bothered about compactness and can live with slightly less attenuation - it will be on a 308 for multiples, on hinds from a static position.

    Low(ish) weight, compactness and then attenuation are the factors for me.

    My friend has put one his tikka super varmint, not sure what the diameter is of the heavy barrel, but he machined the rear bush to the correct size when he went to pick it up. So you shouldn't have a problem. Sound wise it ain't bad, have you thought about the ASE Northstar mod. I got one on my tikka varmint and there is no rear bush to mark your barrel. I like it and it's smaller than you think when you get it.

    Hi pete
    thanks for the info, looks well made and not bothered in not the quietest.
    It will save me lugging my Bat around Dumfries, when the spartan is fitted.
    Is there any plans for a munty weekend next year?
    Regards
