It's a small but heavy, extremely well machines squonker. The original comes from Malaysia, not to much of a stretch to think that the Cloners had the exact same machining program. Each individual part is etched with part number,etc. Very nice...but careful with the two assembly bolts, do not overtighten when reassembling, the internal female threads can be weak...and you will be taking this apart often for cleaning. The fire button in ingenious, but all the close tolerances don't allow for sticky juice filled operation.

Totally worth it though. Especially being almost 1 to 1 of a highly elusive, 500.00 plus original. The coated battery cap wears after time, but reports say the original does as well.
