This thing is heavy, I mean it feels like it could double as a midievil weapon or several .50 cal casings. I am super pleased with this purchase. The whole assembly is well thought out, as in it doesn't need three to four bolts to do the job of one bolt, and it locks together as solid as a bank vault. It was a bit pricey, but then again I part unwillingly with hard earned cash. In this case I do not regret the purchase, and am super pleased with the product. The brass cup even looks good with my black bezel.
