I've been using their 0.3, 0.6, and 0.9 GNDs for awhile now and will never go back. The Big Stopper would be so much fun because you can use it at literally any time of the day.

They posted on twitter last week and then I ordered- anything up to 8/30 was filled and shipped. I got the 77 wa adapter ring, FK and the Big Stopper. They said that a big part of the previous delays was due to the glass being made for the London games.

So the big stopper is actually glass and not resin like their other filters?

edit: According to their site it is, didn't know that.

So, to use this filter you need the filter (obviously), the adapter (which attaches to the lense), and that's it? I'm fairly uninformed when it comes to filters.

...and the foundation kit which is the actual holder. The adapter attaches to the lens and the holder (foundation kit)- holding up to three filters. So basically, you attach everything to the lens, compose/focus and then slide the filter in to the holder and shoot.

Filters go in the holder, the holder attaches to the adapter ring, which goes on the lens

It's a lot like the color of my old R32. Beautiful bike man.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Got around to snapping some more for ya.






I would say the quality is superb (anything from RH is good stuff), especially for the price. The only thing you'll find better are more custom pieces like what the quote below posted. However I called them to get a quote on their cheapest piece (the c-119 coffee table) and it was 6k, A fair price given the work, but a bit rich for my blood at the moment.

Well the STR is certainly a lot cheaper than the Vltor, and I have a bias to anything Magpul since they're out of the Boulder area. Shopping local and such.

As for the upper and lower... Well, my gun isn't an ar-15 chassis .
