Review: I was skeptical about buying another set of shells. Having a hard time convincing myself to buy the 65 dollar cousin. I bought the cheep little sister. I bought my warrior shells in two tone. Black bottom w/ smoke top half. The packaging was cheep I was thinking oh boy there gonna crack! Got it home took my cracked shells off my halo and took the guts out. Took out the Warrior shells took all the screws out and like I said before the nuts behind the screws are NOT glued in -1. After I got the raceway in and started to put the borad and button cover back in I noticed that it didnt fit. Looked in there with a flash light. The wedge that hold the borad was a little tight. And at first the button cover seemed a little over sized and almost looked like it wouldent fit. All you have to do is push the borad down a little and it fits snuggly in place. The Button cover fits but the shells have to come together and they fit perfectly. After that it was a SNAP. And one other thing you will noticed is that the shells are NOT so thin. You can feel the differnce. Its made from a little different material. But there still under test. I will update later. But on that note I was able to put a bit of force on the screws with out craking anything so thats good. One thing I did noticed is that if you plan on putting a speed feed on these shells, you will have to knock the pin out that holds the lid in because the top is not split in the center like stock shells. Either that or you will have to break the lid off. Honestly its really not that much work if you are pacient. I like the Warrior Shells. Oh and I didnt have a single problem with the button.
Conclusion: Expensive isent always better. The shells seem to be made from better material "will see in the future". If you have a little pacients and take your time putting the shells together spite the nuts that are not glued in place. I paid 25 for these shells VS 65. And probrobly got a better deal. -1 for the screws,
