Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month2 of 3 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Products Used:
all types of drops/cradles/on-offs
Marker Setup: black-blue fade Orracle, Empire reloder, 88cu 4500psi crossfire, WGP bullet drop
Strengths: looks great
on-off big, easy to turn (until it froze up on me)

Weaknesses: very small drop
on-off froze up
easily scratched
Review: I had this drop for about 2 weeks and it performed great for the time i had it. It had a nice smooth turn for the on-off and it looked absolutely great on my orry. After about the second week i noticed the asa knob starting to tighten up and becoming hard to unscrew. Then one day, as i was trying to de-gas, the no-off knob completely froze up. I did what i thought was best and went at it with a pair of pliars and ended up completely seperating the on-off knob from the asa. The knob snapped right off in my hands with a minimal about of pressure applied, I was furious, and wouldnt you know it it didnt come with a warranty. The only up side is that i took off the asa from the drop and am now using it as a dovetail mount.
Conclusion: I would recommend buying this drop if you are willing to take the risk of this happening to you. My little brother has the same drop and it hasnt caused him any trouble yet, but in my mind i cant see myself giving this product a rating of over a five.
5 out of 10

You say it froze, but your using compressed air, explain.

"Froze-up" is a common replacement for "Seized-up"...When a mechanical item ceases to function/move either due to wear and binding or lack of lubrication...
