Review: I bought one of these at the IAO. Price was 35, same as the site. They even game me a discount in addition for buying a couple, and buying some of their awesome bolts. The company is awesome, all the guys are super nice, and also knowledgeable. They test their products and make sure they work.

The drop itself is duckbill ready, as well as dovetail ready. I am using a ST on/off with mine. The set screw is awesome, it puts pressure on a ball of some sort, so it will not mark the on/off up. It also comes in through the side, making it even easier to use.

The bottomline holes are slotted, so you can set it further forward or backward to fit your trigger frame or comfort.

The drop is very very light, but does not wobble at all.

The setup is quite bizzarre looking, but looks are decieving. I was skeptical, and I have always hated unimount setups. The Endo (and Endo^2) have about half as many screws, and holds tighter.

Placing the tank one the shoulder allows it to be quite stable, unlike some drops (to me), but it allows the gripframe to remain close to the shooters body. A lot of weight goes on the shoulder, which helps hold the front of the marker down. If you are using an egg, nearly all the weight is on the shoulder.

In addition to being close, the shoulder mount is extremely nice for laying down, as well as switching sides of the bunker. It brings the marker to the same place each time. It will give you a slimmer profile (as a unimount), but does not make a deep profile (as a unimount creates, and drop prevents), whihc helps when someone gets an angle on you.
Conclusion: This is the best of both worlds between a drop forward and a unimount. You've got to try one of these, unless you use CO2. Otherwise, they're amazing. Great company too. THANKS!
