thank you for that post Denny. I have the gen 1 Tac latch and it is my favorite. All the talk about receiver wear was bothering me but not enough to get rid of the latch. I also have 0 complaints about the latch digging into my chest even when jut wearing a T shirt and I even use a single point sling along with it.

Do you have a pic of the Gen 1 latch before the sharp hook was fixed?

Thanks,
Bill

Well Denny I ordered one each of the model 1 and model 2 Badger Ordnance tac latches from you to give them a try. As always thanks for the good info.

Thanks Denny. I wanted to get a Badger Latch, but kept hearing the stories.

The second generation Badger latch looks the best to me. I like the way it doesn't protrude as far.

The older one (2nd Gen) looks machined. Is the newer version MIM?

Good deal. I was judging only by what appeared to be ejection pin marks; no flame intended. Looks like a solid design to me.

I eased the edges on my Badger latch with a Dremel a while back.

All are made of ordnance grade steel. 4140 if my old memory serves

Denny




But is it MP stamped?
