Well damn, I was gonna pull the trigger on a Labradar tonight, but all of my shooting is done suppressed. Looks like I need to do a little more research. I'm just tired of fighting cheap chronos.

Could someone tell me more about the doppler mode? Is it just a constant scan? I shoot alone most of the time and this wouldn't be an issue? Is it more reliable this way?

The issue I have with the Doppler mode is where it picks up the shot in the trace. The next Gen Labradar will probably address these issues.

Positioning is the key. Several times someone has told me their unit doesn't work with their suppressor. I position it for them and it works just fine.

The muzzle of the can should be 4 - 6 inches behind the labradar and 2-3 inches off to the side. Muzzle Height should be at the middle of the Labradar. Never had a labradar not trigger with it in that position with a can.

Will also say that Greg Piet's trigger works great.

No issues with my LR and a silencer. The LR has to be in front of the muzzle though.

Has anyone tried the recoil trigger from JKL precision?
I figured sooner or later someone would come up with the same design... good on them and I wish them well. Hopefully they didn't just buy one of mine and reverse engineer it... karma is a bitch.

Isn't it funny how it never existed until your design came out and a bunch of people bought one? Yeah I hope they did their own R&D and started from scratch.

Yeah guess I know how B+T, Switchview, and Short Action Precision feels about the "extremely similar products". Oh well. I did it to help the community and getting a few bucks was an added benefit. Free market is a wonderful thing regardless.

Thanks @wildmanpiet, I just purchased one of your devices.
I have struggled trying to get my rifle to trigger with my Thunder beast Ultra 7. I appreciate you bringing a fix to this product.

Looks like I sold a unit to someone in the same town that company posts from on Jan 2 and they were working on their new project late January. Curious timing for sure. Bless their hearts.
Looks like the same thing happened with a couple items from Blamm Enterprises as well.

So I feel compelled to jump in here. I live local to Greg (wildmanpiet) and have never met him outside of electronic conversation.
He has broke thru the barrier associated with the labradar and its not registering shots, suppressed or otherwise. I am well over 300 shots “since” his device is in use without one missed shot, correctly written, without one missed shot.
Last weekend we set it up using a 204 ruger, suppressed, with an SiCo Omega and a flat cap, again no problem grabbing every single shot out of the 204.
Due to being local to me, he took upon himself to not charge me shipping, not a big deal, except when its speaks to ones character. It is everything he makes it out to be, plus some!

Imitation is biggest form of flattery, except when it costs you business.

Spreading the word I’m sure will help keep things in “perspective”

Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad the community is finding benefit in the concept and execution.
You can find me over at Desert Sportsmans quite often and if you have any issues please don't be afraid to reach out...
