At Caveman®, we transform heat, a historically wasted byproduct of shooting, into actionable data that allows shooters of any experience level to make better decisions and be safer on the range or in competition.

            Our thermal accessories feature color-changing technology that signals when your gun barrel has reached an excessive temperature, providing precision shooters with a crucial tool to sight in their rifles at the optimal temperature. This not only helps reduce bullet drift but also offers a vibrant and highly visible indicator that helps protect both the shooter and the firearm equipment from accidental contact with a hot barrel or suppressor.

Who are we?

            As gun enthusiasts, hobbyists, and tech fanatics, we support the right to bear arms and strive to bring innovation to the firearm community. Caveman® was founded in 2016 with a mission to research, develop, and provide cutting-edge products centered around heat detection in the firearms industry. We filed for our first patent in 2016 and launched our flagship product, The Flare Mini™ soon after. We are proud to be an American-made business, committed to keeping our production local. We started with humble beginnings, hand-injecting 3D-printed molds to create our products. Thanks to the amazing support of the Reddit community, we were able to scale up to mass production with professional manufacturers while staying true to our Made in America promise.

            Today, we are proud to offer an expanded line of thermal products that harness the power of heat to enhance the shooting experience of gun enthusiasts across the United States. Join the ranks of satisfied customers who trust our products to put heat to work!
