    Wasn't it discovered that they just buy their stuff from China and mark it up? I seem to remember that was the case with their UHMWPE stuff

      @Dale Magma They never made that a secret as far as I've seen; still, probably safer and cost competitive to get an old ACH cut and add a shroud/rails to that.

    And it still has the damn M-Lok attachment slots. I ended up having to take my side shrouds off in order to have enough room to tighten the bolts for my ear pro attachments, and honestly the attachment is suboptimal. They should have just gone with industry standard helmet rails.
