THOR M408 - Advanced Long Range Interdiction System

 [M408]

$11,495.00

Description

THOR M408 - Advanced Long Range Interdiction System

The THOR M408 rifle is the ultimate in long range precision. This rifle sets the standard worldwide for special operations teams needing a specialized system capable of hard and soft target interdiction at ranges beyond 2,000 meters. The M408 rifle system is built by a collaborative effort of the original design, development and production team of the M200 .408

We are pleased to offer the full line of THOR 408 and 375 rifles with quick turnaround and short lead times for custom builds. To provide more information on the system, The THOR M408 is a 7 shot repeating, takedown rifle system. The barrel is removable and replaceable by the operator. The rifle has an over the barrel bipod system built onto the barrel shroud with carry handle. The M408 comes standard with a custom Krieger barrel and completely adjustable butt stock. In fact, the entire rifle is maintainable at the operator level – including complete tear down. Spare barrels can be maintained at the unit level and replacement can be made in the field, allowing for special barrel design and shorter barrels.

The takedown capabilities provides a safe rifle which supports all methods of infiltration; including military free-fall, static line, small boat, dive lockout as well as all other forms of infiltration. The M408 repeats its different zeros extremely well. The system has been repeatedly disassembled and reassembled with no change in zero. This includes removal of the barrel and reinstallation, removing and reinstalling the optics and removing and reinstalling the suppressor. The M408 is very pleasurable to shoot due to the purpose built and very effective muzzle brake that has very little overpressure felt by shooter or observer.

The M408 is a solid anti-personnel system to distances beyond 2000 yards. The primary intent of the .408 is as an extreme range anti-personnel system. Groups of 7"- 9" at 1000 yards, 10" at 1500 yards and 15" at 2000 yards have been consistently obtained. Groups of 19" at 2100 yards and 29"‚Äē at 2400 yards have also been obtained. All groups that are up to 3000 yards are less than 1 minute of angle for vertical dispersion. The extreme range capability of the M408 allows the shooter to standoff at a distance that is unparalleled by any other system, including the 50 SASR. As an anti-personnel system, the M408 is only limited by flight time in regards to flight of the projectile to the target. The nature of the target at that point becomes the limiting factor of the systems maximum effective range.

The high remaining kinetic energy characteristics of the 419gr projectile make it a very effective anti-material rifle. The .50 BMG has a higher initial muzzle energy of 11,200 ft. lbs. vs. the 408s energy of 7,700 lbs. At 700 yards however, the remaining energy of the 408 is higher than that of the .50 caliber rifle. Ranges past 700 yards are the realistic engagement-range for anti- material rifles. The .408s 419grain projectile will defeat any material that the .50 BMG can defeat except those targets that require an explosive projectile. 

  • Advantages:
    • Accuracy – Due to harmonics and a more stable shooting platform as well as an accurized assembly, the accuracy of the M408 is greatly enhanced. Guaranteed sub-MOA.
    • Recoil – The M408 substantially reduces recoil, allowing for quicker follow up shots

M408 ĖThis rifle is used worldwide. It is also in a league of its own when it comes to long range accuracy nothing else can be compared. It ships standard with a 29 inch military barrel with a detachable muzzle break it is easily removable from optional suppressor. The suppressor is highly recommended. It is extremely pleasant to shoot and quiet. It is shipped standard with two 7 round detachable magazines, bipod, carry handle and rear monopod. Everything is shipped standard in a custom fitted starlight hardcase with wheels. It also includes a cleaning rod, bore guide and tools needed to disassemble the weapon. The barrel can be removed with in a matter of seconds to be more compact. Optional accessories would be a picatinny rail for a forearm if you wanted which is needed if you are going to use night vision or IR laser. The only scope I recommend is the Nightforce 5.5-22x56 with the NP-R2 reticle. Other reticles are available by special request. The Nightforce scope will be mounted by the rifle either by THOR military rings. This rifle is 408 CheyTac caliber. Each round is machined and has an effective range of over 3000 meters. There is a link on this section which will take you to THOR white papers on performance. It is also available on THORís website. I highly recommend reading it, it goes over the complete system. This rifle needs to be used in conjunction with a Kessler weather meter. Also ask about software. It is a must for shooting extremely long ranges. Youíll also need a good range finder. The ammo is in stock all the time along with projectiles brass and reloading dies for those individuals who decide to reload. For more info please donít hesitate to contact us or check out THORís website. For more information and a list of accessories please feel free to contact us. Knesek Guns Inc..
