Review: I like this drop a lot. It's not like the others.

The innovative design concept employed by this product really does work. It's tight, versatile and even a bit stylish. I find it comfortable and it addresses the added vertical profile "problem" most anti-drop folks have. In fact you can lower your gun's profile, all while still keeping the tank cradled on your arm for maximum comfort.

My issue with this product was quality control. I had a possible issue with the dovetail and a definite issue with the threading in one of the holes meant for the set screws (binding in both). I managed to make it all work with some force, though, so I have a working drop and am pleased with it. Seems like most other reviewers didn't have these issues, so I could have got a bad one. I have no reason to believe FBM would not have warrantied the part; they seem to be an efficient and responsive business.
Conclusion: Highly recommended for people who like drops but want extra comfort and versatility. Even anti-drop folks should give one a feel, it might just change their minds. -1 point for quality control issue for a final rating of 9.
Rating:
9 out of 10
