Better than expected, button ever so slightly off centre after firing though I think this will get better with use as the surfaces wear into each other (no deal breaker)adjustable pin for battery rattle, no issues with flat tops, threads are clean & is a solid performer

LOL When you fire this, it's a good idea to have at least a bit of your finger under the edge of the switch. If you just push at the side there is a chance that the switch can go flying across the room.

Not so strong that my pinky couldn't fling the switch trying to make sure that I got a good connection. Learning curve...

The top cap wiggles until you crank it down tightly. The locking screw helps with that. Slows down atty changes, if you do that much, so keep your allen wrench handy.

Somehow I knew that I'd probably lose that thing. I do like the design though.

Thank you once again e_smoke. I will get one of these as soon as things settle down in April. I would like to hear your trusted opinion on switch flying since you were kind enough to start the thread. Is the switch a problem at all ?

Thanks again
-Late,

It's not that big of a deal. Just remember that when you are holding it lightly, it's likely to pivot in your grip unless your lips are gripping it. That causes the force vector to change from lateral to downward and can make the cap jump the 2mm pins and then slide on up over the center post. Not very likely to happen often. After I did it, I took that into account, no problem.

Well explained Hartoled. That may not be a problem then really. I'll likely invest in one after things get settled here a bit. :) Thanks

@e_smoke,

Thanks for the pix and info. Quick question, have you had any issue with the button being too loose or coming/falling off?

Thanks,
SiaSia.
