Why wouldn't there be? There are only so many ways to skin the same cat, and both adapters perform the same function. I am betting there is a difference in quality. however.

Quite a bit of difference in everything. There are, at my last count, 8 different adapters for the big 3 of Remington, Winchester and Mossberg shotguns. Most are of very high quality, mine included. Some are plastic and start at less than $40, others are machined for about the same price. They can run as high as $240 just for the adapter as I found on a Florida dealers website. The product manufacturer was unknown. As a tool and die maker I know the in's and outs of manufacturing a product. I designed it and a company I deal with will investment cast it in Aluminum right here in America. Michigan to be exact. You can also get it in Magnesium and Stainless Steel. We went with the one piece design to reduce costs add a little style and make it more like the factory would make it Kind of like the FN TPS. Now, if you want a comparison.... As I say in my FAQ on the website, our costs are the same as anyone else when it comes to manufacture. We priced it at a fair market value and I feel a fully dressed adapter for less than $110 (with the stock and psitol grip) is something most people can afford. As for quality, I designed it, I built it, I guarantee it. Thanks for the Promo.

One big difference is that one of them is a Solid Works model

Wow, that's original!

Not!

I wish it was original. Fact is, people want it and there's plenty of business to go around. Come up with something original, I'll make it, you can fund it and we'll split the profits.

Obviously the concept must have some serious merits with so many people pursuing it.

If you need help with stocks (M4 or A1 length fixxed) to go with your adapters, we’d be happy to sell them to you. Contact us directly for Volume and OEM pricing.



Outstanding! I appreciate your well wishes and it's the people like you that makes this business great. I've been doing custom one-off type stuff for the last 5 years and this is another avenue, albiet more public. I've got some prices on stocks and grips but I never turn down an opportunity to make a deal. It'll be more towards the end of the week but I will contact you. Thanks again.

Hello All!

Hey Sinistral...how are you making out on your standalone front sight? I've been looking forward to it for some time...

Brobee

edited to add - if you've let it slide to the backburner, we should all try to talk factorytactical into doing the work and coming up with something so that people can use a set of AR15 style flip up sights in lieu of a red dot style sight (solving the 3-gun penalty problem).

Great to see you again Jason. MIKE.



Please tell me you washed your hands after pulling this one outa yer ass...

If you'd care to invest the time looking into the benefits of the design, you might actually learn that there is some logic in it. Given, these are not a huge bonus for everyday users. For law enforcement, military and competition use, they are extremely well suited.

Agreed, WolverineAtWork, they are way cool, dude! I have the Argonaut Arms/ KAC RAS870 version and it is slick.

Looking for ideas, eh? How about a speedloader that is fast, reliable and robust.

Except in those states where you can't hunt deer with a rifle, like in Michigan and Ohio and others.
