I was told 2-3 weeks I’ll do a write up on them when all my amp arms and adapters come in.

Surprised unity tactical didn’t come up with this first.

I got my AMP arms on Monday, just need to pre order the AXL adapters today.

Didn’t know this was a thing. I’ll have to pick up a set for my spare helmet that’s running Sordins

Thanks for this.  Just did a preorder.

I sent AXL a DM on instagram and was told the pre-orders should* ship before Black Friday. So heres to hoping. I got my pre-order in, ordered my Team Wendy rail adapter from Unity, and am now just anxiously awaiting my RAC arms and AXL adapters to get everything thrown together.

What’s your initial impressions of the adapters durability Wise? What material are they made of looks like carbon fiber?

Yeah looks like it.  If so should be durable.

Honestly just did a test fit on my head, didn’t really put them through the paces - but I’m just a hobbyist, not a real life operator. They seem sturdy, I also have AXL adapters for my plate carrier to run a Haley chest rig and they’re also sturdy.

No, they’re not true CF from what I can tell. They come flat and they bend to allow for install. I don’t think real CF would bend/flex like that. I could be wrong though.

Carbon fiber bends, its how they get it to form to the mold. Its the epoxy that hardens to makenit keep its shape.

I'm not sure what AXL uses exactly. But it could easily be a kind of carbon fiber weave blended with another fabric to keep it from falling apart.

Per an article about the material AXL uses:

"There is a long scientific name, but everyone just calls it "carbon fiber-like material." It's a Thermoplastic Composite. It has about 70% of the strength of carbon fiber composite. And we can sew into it; same material Crye uses in their products. They are the ones that told us what to use."
