Small - even anti-drop people should like it
Only comes with one screw when it needs two (explained in review).
I was using a CIP Unimount before getting this with the Hybrid Grind (wrote a review for that too!).
The MSD is so small, its function resembles that of a rail mount. In fact, the only reason i got it is because i needed a dovetail mount but don't like the look of a rail. So don't expect much of a drop-forward out of this.
A nice feature it has is the dual ball bearings used to keep the asa in place. Each ball has a tiny set screw - when you tighten them, the ball bearings lower holding the asa tight on the drop. I'd recommend some blue loctite on those set screws.
Now about the screw used to mount the drop to the trigger frame. Yes, screw, singular not plural. Hybrid only supplies one and i'll explain why:
Most other drops use two short screws, since the area with the holes is thin. On the MSD, one of the screws has to be nearly twice as long to fit through the bulk of the drop. Hybrid supplies this longer screw. They assume you'll have a regular short one for the back of the MSD.
The MSD is truly a drop for the anti-drop player. It's all function with a little bit of style. The price isn't listed up there but expect to pay around $25 for it.
