You originally just wanted a mount for an akog for yourself if I remember correctly? OG

Yup - wanted to mount a TA-24 to my "AK-105" build. I had been using a Vortex Strikefire on an Ultimak and was not happy with the balance or performance of the rifle.

As far as price, if you can afford an ACE you can afford the handguards, but if it's not anything different from MI's in what it delivers, then how is a $60 swing in this case ($200 is purely hypothetical) justified for aesthetics alone? I'd like to see the entire handguard to know! Also, as a side topic, I along with others will want to see reviews as to how they perform

whether you like the response here or not doesn't matter, by Horse coming on here and talking directly with his customer base, however emotional some are, he's getting free info and suggestions from the very people who are interested in purchasing said product, we're a very niche and select market, so even though we're crazy at times, think of how much you can gauge your actual market here and think of how much one move can affect support, pretty smart to just engage at minimum, test the pulse of the consumer, and get a feel for what can sell and how it should sell-because even though your consumers are difficult, they are the ones who wield the monetary power
Full photo release? That I don't know why. I can guesstimate, maybe has last second changes planned before anodizing, maybe a contract with a vendor stipulating that the vendor will be the one to release the full picture to direct traffic to their webstore, maybe an agreement with media for an exclusive. Or maybe he is teasing, as some suggest. I dunno. But I am on the team that wants to see it.

And what I meant by a forecast model based on a forum was not a "diss" at the forum. I merely meant it from a numbers perspective. But everything else, you are right on. This is a perfect place for feedback/input/insight. I would know, I have been coming around here and similar forums since the early 2000s, technically right after the sunset of the ban. (weird that I take 10 years to join and make 10 posts, enjoy me, I might be back in a decade) Lotta knowledgeable dudes.

True about the aesthetics "markup or discount," and waiting for performance. But I kinda know my way around a gun (bullet thingies go out the front) enough to make a guess as to which one would suit me better by looking at them. For example, I knew I was going to hate the stock handguards. I was right. I also know that Horse is gonna put out good stuff, I still have one of their Gen 1 mounts for a T1.

(As for the insult, if it was directed at me, you can PM it to me. I just don't want you holding anything in, it isn't good. Believe it or not, I care about your well being. You is kind. You is smart. You is special. I can take it, I'm a big boy. Sometimes my wife lets me stay up until 12 on the weekends. )

Ya the insult wasn't really an insult but it could've come across that way so I deleted it-it was something along the lines of "cool story bruh"

But it doesn't forward the topic at all so I thought it was stupid and removed it, I'd rather have a conversation than act like a douche and derail a thread about a product we're all interested in

Moving forward- HORSE- this release is supposed to be previewed with Iraq Vet and some other guys in October, can you give us more details on that?

I need to figure out how to get an invite to the IV8888 gig. They are right down the road from me.
