Price match? Manufacturer difference?
This mod is 48.99$ on the cop. site. (been a while that I ordered from there but I paid around 6$ for shipping with taxes inc.)
Pictures are a bit different, they don't picture it with the engraved tube either which anyway doesn't come with the mod. Also they list 4 different versions. (about colours and finish)

I'm just wondering if there are several cloners, or why is the huge difference?

I don't understand why they did not do the pictures with the included tube, this one is kind of odd looking.

Too bad it don't come with the engraved tube. I think it looks nice.

I'm often a sucker for replacement tubes...almost always, just to use them with something else. So a bit awaiting the listing of them. But not for 30$, bon sang!! :))

This mod looks far better with a plain tube, I can only agree with you Eternal.
But the price is a bit steep.

Yeah it feels like the price is up there for what it is, but I don't follow mechs all that much. I wanted to grab a side fire 21700 for awhile, and so much of the pricing seems insane for what they are, to me. 340.00 for a mech tube seems crazy. It's all what people will pay for it though, if this one doesn't sell at this price I bet it has some room to go down.

With those you can go with the clones. There's been some good ones. I've got only some 18650 from the past, but they are great.

And 5% of the price you said above... =) Even less?

Any favorites you recommend 21700 side fires?

Ill toss them in my wish list, trying not to buy new stuff. Not doing great, I keep browsing around looking at stuff.

The Purge Slam Piece clones are great performers but several are painted steel (and the paint can come off in a light breeze) so you are safer going for unfinished brass (unless you like steel).

The downside is they are heavy, like really heavy and they are 31mm wide so, unfortunately, the only atty looks right on it is the one supplied with it in kit form. The mod is great, but I'm not keen on the RDA (too open for my tastes).

But if you can handle a little underhang it's fine, unfortunately I haven't seen it on FT, which is a shame.

Thanks for the heads up.
