I know this doesn't make the most sense, but I have always wanted an A5 with this style feed neck to put in place of the cyclone. I would probably only use my Proto loader so the functionality wouldn't be that much of the point so much as personal aesthetics. Good to see a novel product!

Edit: In a similar vein, I've also wanted to put a cyclone on a RF Cocker!

Interesting... not sure if I find it $70 interesting though

I would definitely stock them in my store if they had a lower price point. $49.95 would be a much easier sell for customers.

Doesn't Python make all their stuff in the USA? That most likely explains the price point.

It's easy to make stuff in the USA and still keep reasonable pricing. Something I have learned getting ready to go into production on stuff myself.

GHPBOwner 11-30-2012 08:33 PM

It really depends on how many the produced in their production run to set that price.

I'm surprised it has taken this long for a company to make one of these. The A5 has been out for 10 years and X7/phenom has been out for 6/2 years how have they not made something like this for 10 years.

I recall seeing a similar product a few years ago but you had to snap off the hook to use it and it was pretty blocky.

EDIT: heres a newer version of the one I saw before, but you dont have to snap off the hook on this one.
