I know there is love and hate for SI, but is anyone using that new G4 slide comp they just came out with? It just looks big and cumbersome to me, but people seem to be eating it up on IG. When I first saw pre production pics a few months ago, I thought "wow that looks silly, nobody will want that" but I guess I was wrong.

I've not seen or used one, but I've seen the video's and reviews. To my eyes,, it doesn't look as "big and cumbersome" as some of it's screw on cousins, but again, that could be perception from the way I'm viewing it.

It almost looks like something I wouldn't mind trying but what got me from the slo-mo videos is that it doesn't really seem all that effective. I might keep my eyes open, when I can read some tests where someone knowledgeable really puts it through the wringer.

I've never had a single strike industries product do what it was supposed to.

From what I've sort of noticed is the 'tacticool' crowd is eating it up. I watched a YouTube video or two awhile back and kind of felt the same, it didn't look terribly effective.

To me, once I got a little more involved in playing with AR's, strike came off to me as very gimmicky and flashy over function.

Their ejector port door works pretty good. Other than that I have had the same experience as you :)

Mine didn't. It ate itself into replacement.

I don't know how strike can maintain their business model other than with support of the mass stupidity​ which exists.

So, I'm getting the feeling that SI is NOT your go to place for your weapon's needs?[:D][:D]
