Hi all just wandering has any one heard of them jackson rifles supposed to do them....Neil ??
Looks very much like a wildcat the weight and size are not much better either.A company called TLD produces / is about to produce a mod which is made, in part, from carbon fibre. I don't know if this counts as plastic.
I'm not sure whether the TLD mods are available yet but they have a website with details of the product and a list of suppliers.
I have seen some early versions and a pre - production model. Not tried one yet, but plan to as soon as I can get one. I will post a little review then if one hasn't been done already.
if the prototype is anything to go by, you will have to worry about it blowing away in the breeze when not screwed onto the barrelLooks very much like a wildcat the weight and size are not much better either.
As for the carbon Mod from Anglo Custom Rifle it is undergoing extensive testing as we speak and I will post feedback as soon as the results are in, what I can say is the weight will be 1/3 - 1/2 of the weight of the TLD ones.
Bob I got the weight direct from TLD`s website link is in this thread somewhere I think it may have been you who posted it mate.I've not weighed a TLD mod and I don't know how they compare on paper. However, I have compared the weight of an early version of a TLD with a Northstar. The TLD was noticably lighter, despite having almost twice the volume.
My understanding of the TLD is that some of it (i.e the bit that screws to the barrel, the baffles, end caps etc.) are made from different metals. There is a bare minumum weight for these components which is difficult to safely get below. However, the rest is carbon fibre, which is very light.
I think the TLD's might come into their own when used on the bigger calibre / higher case capacity cartridges which need a large volume mod to reduce noise and felt recoil. This can be achieved without a significant weight increase over and above the bare minimum weight of the metal bits.
I'm keen to see both (TLD and Anglo Custom) and it seems that we are in for some innovative new products over the next few months.
