I can't understand how Empire advertised Reloader II as featuring an improved shell over the original. The shell is VERY brittle. It almost feels like thin ceramic china. The first time I closed the battery door, a small piece on the edge of the door frame snapped off (superglued it back on easily enough, so it's not that big of a deal). It'd probably crack or shatter if dropped on concrete. It's cosmetic design is an improvement, but I don't like the choice of material at all. This is my only complaint, thus far. Everything else seems to be identical to the original Reloader, to which I gave rave reviews.
Would have been a 10 if not so cheaply made. It's well worth it for $30, though.
