Raptor MSH

Last week I ordered a Fusion Chainlink MSH for my Raptor. I first saw this MSH in a post by bhunted. It was a toss up between the Fusion and the Ed Brown version. The Fusion was about half the price and I really couldn't tell the difference. Today, I finally got a chance to install the MSH. It was a breeze thanks to a video Marshall posted. I really like the look it adds to the Raptor. It looks like is should have come from the factory this way. I never had an issue with the plastic one that came with the gun, it was all about the look.

Looks great, tastes like chicken.

One thing, (not that it is not 99% as is), you may want to try blend it better. What I did is polish it with Flitz or Mothers and got it to look exactly like the rest of the parts.

Fusion has become more than a few small parts. They are a main business that are into a lot of parts, guns, barrels, etc. Seem they have come a long way. Check out their website.

Thanks for the advice, I have some Mothers, I'll try that.

Fusion has added a lot of products to the line.

Just do a little at a time. Get carried away and it will look different.
For the future and others. Get their polished version. It looks closer and no polish needed. Their beading leaves it a slight bit grayer requiring just a little polishing. I believe they are the same price.

If anyone likes an msh with landyard loop. I have one. Took it off because it dug into my palm a bit.

I just cleaned it with some metal polish. I think it made a difference, here's another picture.
