The fully adjustable trigger shoe can move left, right, up, down, and swivel. The shoe can be positioned fore and aft on the 4mm rail to accommodate every shooter.

New this year is a barrel shroud system that does not disrupt accuracy or poi. The new shroud positively threads on to the barrel block providing a very rigid attachment that can be removed or installed in seconds. The titanium shroud has an internal stripper that is easily unscrewed to facilitate easy barrel cleaning. Noise level has been drastically reduced...all while preserving the accuracy that you have come to expect from a Thomas.
Picatinny rails have 20 MOA of drop built in to them.
The cocking system is a leveraged design that uses ball bearings in the pivot. Cocking effort is very low and completely reliable.
The FT version has a full length Anschutz rail in the forend for accessory mounting.
The tail wishbone and pivoting adjuster provide almost infinite offset and length of pull adjustments for every preference.
All Thomas rifles are capable of quickly and precisely adjusting power levels via the jet system. This feature provides outstanding versatility and value to the competitive shooter. One rifle can perform at the top level of competition in every power class. Changing power class is less than a 30 second process. If it's your desire to utilize separate barrels for each class to simplify maintenance...the Thomas has you covered there, too.
Barrel changes are accomplished in about a minute with one Allen wrench. The split barrel block with 3 1/2 inches of concentric, uniform contact does not distort the barrel internally like all of the set screw type mounts used by the rest of the makers. This system also has the added benefit of easily allowing barrel indexing without the need for a "thimble".
