If they're doing a knock off that sucks a bunch. Is it possible Solar Tactical sold them a bunch in bulk at a discount? Maybe wishful thinking, but please do support the companies that keep our rifles legit in this state and not some random Amazon seller.

Looks like a gen 1 style solar tac mag lock, those are the type that failed when we tested them at PRK.

I pulled latch cover down far enough for me to get my finger in there and release the mag without the aid of a tool. That's why the newer version has the long screw to beef up that area of the mag lock. I know Mike personally and I let him know what we found before anything got out. He changed his design and thats a credit to him as a good businessman and a good dude.
The Solar Tactical wasn't the only one we tested, but he is the only one to take the info and make a change for the better. He's a freind and I would never want to burn him in any way.
