I wanted to make my Milsim complete and I figured what better way to do so than with a cool black macro fitting.

I got the 90* Swivel Black fitting from Hobbyhorse. As usual he shipped fast and I had it in a few days.

After opening my padded envelope out came my little case with a black fitting in it.

Fitting in the case:

Like any high quality fitting it came pre-dipped in Teflon so it is ready to install as soon as you get it.

The black color on the fitting is perfect and solid. I thought for sure it would scratch when installing it but I was wrong.

The macro hose goes right in smooth. The hose comes out only if you push down on the ring and I tried hard to break it loose with out pushing down on the ring, but couldn't

Over all the fittings are top notch... I would definitely recommend them for anyone wanting that custom look.

Can't wait for more colors.

Coming from an outdoorsmen, I'm digging that shocker!!!

Anyways, I too bought some black 90* and straight macro fittings from hobbyhorse. Same great service as the guys above me mentioned.

There was a poll on macrolineguy's site for the next most desired color. Perhaps there are some new colors in the works for fittings?

Great Job Hobby!!!

Am I right in not being surprised that you bought these fittings despite the lack of a gun to put them on?

LoL, they do look nice anyways...

I help out a great seller, Hobby takes care of all of us, so why not help him out too.

And on that note, I have some Blue and Red ones coming this week. I will post up pics of those too.

Well my mail showed up today and I had a nice Hobbyhorse package waiting for me. The new color fittings are excellent. These came in red snap close containers, which I am growing fond of. They are great to store spare parts in.

Here are the fittings in the containers:

As always, the fittings are grade A. The color is rich and is adhered to the fittings solidly. The macro hose slides in with out issue and locks in tight.

Here are the 2 new colors:

RED

BLUE

I also got a pic of the whole family of colors together.

Black, Olive, Blue, Red

Over all these are AWESOME!!! If you want to match your fittings to give you that one off look these are for you.

Can't wait for the other colors to come out!
