    I have several sets of the UTG PRO scope rings on my air rifles and they are pretty well made. Probably overbuilt for pcp airguns but for the price they are nice.

    Very innovative company.
    I tried to follow the science but it simply was not there. I then followed the money, thats where i found the science.

    Yes on the IWI but no on Aero. Iíve been more and more dissatisfied/disappointed with Aero over the last two years and would get a PSA instead.

    That palm tree with the crossed sabers does show up a lot in SA . . . .

    I bought a "duty grade" ar15 from a local assembler. The rail, butt stock and trigger guard is UTG. I am not impressed with how they feel. And the rifle ended up just being a local "PSA" grade rifle. tactical edge arms barrel, none chromed lined.

    The sad part is most of their furniture didnt even fit airsoft stuff, And most people dropping coin on the high end stuff was making clones and not using utg parts. Most of airsoft stuff is aimed at clones of military stuff.

    UTG and condor and the like are in the middle, they make comparatively cheap stuff that can fit both groups.
    Hell some airsoft branded soft gear are actually over built.

    Maxpedition makes an awesome dump pouch but refuse to make anything in camo and I wanted a small rollypoli and the brand at the time was called phantom gear and they made one and I will be damned, it was $10 and Its the only one I kept when I was forced to leave airsoft because everyone left.

    Just checked back and maxpedition is doing a bogo sale of them, and now condor is taking up filling in where phantom used to be.
    They made great clones and now condor is going to ruin it.
