    The camo option looks cool. Wonder how well it blends with the multicam family and woodland pattern?

      Hydro dipping or tampo printing on Acetal does not hold up very well… you need the texture to achieve the reduced IR signature… and you need the smooth surface for the printing…

      No Bueno

    It would be nice if they offered retail sales. It is almost impossible to find all the items they produce at single retail store.
