Cool with that and not dismissing anything, but it has to be kept in perspective too.

I am not dismissing anything as we have the same kit on ours so my eyes are open but from an engineering perspective a nice snug bolt that takes out any amount of flex is not a bad thing, not trying to upset anyone (which seems to be easy here for some reason) just keep it in perspective.

As noted above, everything is a compromise so nothing it perfect and it doesn't matter who makes what there is usually room for improvement and this only comes from gear being used in the field.

Great news BDCW stepped up to offer Craig a new bolt, excellent service to say the least
