This is a very well designed two-operation magazine lock that we now have in stock. It operates very much like a standard tool-operated device to drop your mag, but take your rifle out of state and a few turns with an allen wrench and the shroud drops down and you can press the mag release with your finger.

Price is $30.99

I doubt you will get Shark to say one product is better than the other.
I played with it the other night so I'll say I can see +'s & -'s on both.

Pros:
The Vamfire is a few dollars less.
In tool release mode its more open like a standard BB. So it makes using a bullet a bit easier than the raddlock.
In finger release mood the spring is really light as to the raddlock is stiff. Almost seems a bit too light though.

Cons:
The raddlock looks better and more like a normal release.
The small flathead screwdriver to work a raddlock is way more common then the little allen wrench on the Vamfire. Losing it will suck. Especially if your in the middle of nowhere.

At the end of the day they are both good choices.

And it proves that you can always build a better mousetrap. Think back to a few years ago when we were all top feeding with a Prince50. Gotta give props to the smart people who make these things.
