I've been working on a lighter tuner for a while now and it finally looks like we have something worth talking about. I'm still testing and verifying small details with it but it's encouraging enough that I'll post a couple of pics and throw it out there to the wolves. I will not be discontinuing the Gen I tuners with the .875-32 TPI...They are still the flagship tuner on the market, where weight allows. But, there is a need, particularly for the LV group shooters, for a tuner that really works well and is lighter than the Gen I. IMHO, making weight for a given class and doing so with a gun that handles well is paramount within the LV class. Hence, the new model...I won't give away the details except to say that it was extremely important that I can maintain a consistent message about how to use both tuners, yet them weight different amounts. That took some bit more thought and testing than meets the eye! Trust me when I say this...My Particle Dampening Technology is NOT going anywhere! Testing rubbers and silicones as dampening components against it proved to be an absolute no brainer! The particle dampening is the cat's behind! I can find nothing feasible that can compare to it! That said, I had to work within design parameters that will allow it to weigh less, still incorporate the tungsten pdt..yet allow my message about how to use and adjust it to be the same or very near what I've harped for years. There has always been confusion about how to use a tuner and different instructions for two models was a NO GO! We're there or very close with some fudge room built in for final design. These are not yet in production but will be very soon, it appears. Thank you all! I'm doing my best to fill the needs of the best shooters and people in the world of accuracy, and to stay abreast of the needs of us all in this sport. Tuner sales this year have exceeded my wildest expectations already and it continues to grow, apparently...and with room to continue so, as more and more people move to using them. Also, with the new ITAR regulations coming into effect, I will soon be announcing a new exporter for my tuners and expect to see distributors in other countries in the coming months. I'm pretty stoked about this! Anyway, here's a couple of pics. There is very, very little wasted weight in this thing. The current prototypes that are working so well are 4.6 ounces. That weight may go up or down slightly for production models, after more testing. The Gen I tuners weigh right at 6.5 ounces, fwiw. Production models will have numbers engraved.
