For most of its history, the Thunder Beast Arms Corporation has primarily made suppressors for the precision rifle sector, but it seems lately that they’re branching out a bit. TFB recently shared the news of TBAC’s 9mm can, the Fly 9. This titanium-constructed silencer features a modular design that allows either a seven-inch long configuration or a short 4.4-inch conversion. Now they’ve announced a second Fly model, the Fly 45. This new can will also feature the same titanium construction and modularity as the Fly 9, with both eight-inch and 5.5-inch configuration options. Check out TBAC’s official product announcement below.
