They really named their product "sperm". Somebody on here posted some product,can't recall what but maybe a holster,that was made by "Raw Dog Tactical". I guess these things sound good at the time

Actually might no be too bad if the price is half of Spuhr’s mount and as a lefty I could mount a red dot at an angle on the left side. Spuhr only allows one mounted on the right.

Warne RAMP mount allows a red dot mounted at a 45 on either side.

I'll stick with SPUHR instead of a cheaper lookalike.

Also, that name is familiar.  Any publicity is good publicity so I'm sure playing the heel is their business model.

In looking at it closer, this isn’t a copy of the Spuhr. It shares some similarities visually, but that’s it.

I suppose there are only so many ways to skin a cat when it comes to designing optic mounts.

For the price point and features, this mount is actually a pretty decent option.

That acronym tho. Lol.

I myself didn't get the angst at that. It's been a while since I read the thread but IIRC they caught most of them before they left the factory and Griffin said the welder did such a shitty job that it would only take a handful of rounds to break it, if your can doesn't rattle after shooting a magazine it's fine if it does send it back for a free rebuild.

Don't get me wrong, they aren't the most friendly company in the world, I didn't know any of the drama before I purchased and the reason I went with the RECCE 5 was based on a recommendation from SS, it was also my first can. Nowadays I'd just get a YHM Turbo.. heck I'm planning on buying one too.

That's kind of their thing though--make something that shares visual cues with an existing, premium product and hope to snake in some suckers.
