Now…the ProMag piece is another story. It is my opinion that they are junk. I can’t count the number of roll pins that have split apart when trying to install the mount. I finally threw a bunch of them (the mounts) away.
I'd have tried new roll pins first...maybe you did. Never messed with the ProMag stuff, seen it, handed it, some good, some bad, too variable. Not name brand, etc.
I really don't care who or what made it. As long as it is made right, in the form follows function natural way.
All my guns are builds. All my guns are parts guns. And guess what? Yours are to!
I don't want people thinking they are getting a "CULT Military Side Sling Adaptor - M4 .750 dia."
When really they are just getting a RRA sourced, well machined, "CULT "STYLE
" Military Side Sling Adaptor - M4 .750 dia." sidesling adaptor that mounts to the barrel in between the legs of the FSB.
Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, must be a different turkey?
And to paraphrase and use wording similar something I read recently, concerning people that know enough and have been paid by many, many, people, to teach them proper use and skills, repeatedly with repetition, and with excellent results enough times, to know that a hammer is just a hammer. It drives the nails. But not without the operator. Dead as a hammer...
"It doesn't matter what tribe you are from...the steps are the same..."
All of the fighting tribes, paint their rifles, before they paint their faces. They'd much rather they're rifle get scratched up than they would. And as for numbers, most of them, at least the younger ones I know, won't remember their serial on the rifle they had in basic, much less the ones they might have had to actually fight with.
If Cult is a four letter word, I'd just as soon make it Rock River Arms tomorrow.
btw, warren zevron, listening to it right now. Good stuff.
