If indeed it were sold with that and marketed with that and the guy had an "application sheet" viewable before sale, I'd be somewhat happier.

But those folks are relatively few. Most folks are buying 5.56 ARs and the noobs are looking for shortcuts and this guy is appealing to that mindset.

Remember, one reason we at CGF really support the BB device over earlier screwdown mag locks is because DAs were well aware that quite a few asshats were loosening their maglocks.

What I see here, bottom line, is a dude that wants to make $25 sales without caring about his gunnies/customers getting popped. The fact that apparently his warning sheet is not viewable outside the package before the sale, as reported to me, is also most disturbing.
