Default Review of Hobbyhorse's Colored Fittings

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 Fitting Installed



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

The Fitting with Macro A



The Fitting with Macro B




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?
