3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, not terrible, May 5 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great price but not the sturdiest thing out there. The latches feel like they're not going to last. You get what you pay for but if all you need is a super basic pistol case, then this is the purchase for you.

I may also shave down the thickness of the foam pads because one you get a full sized pistol in there, you really have to push down to get it closed. That also puts unnecessary pressure on those cheap plastic latches. You don't want things rattling around in there but it's just a bit too "full" as is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beware of rod length, May 5 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have three Boresnake Vipers including this one (9mm pistol, 22 rifle, 22 pistol). One of the greatest firearm cleaning tools out there!

I'm not sure why the brass rod is so long for a rimfire pistol Boresnake. It wouldn't fit in my Browning 1911-22's ejection port so I had to use a pair of linesman pliers to shorten it down, then use a dremel to round off the newly sharp edges. Also, where the string connects to the rope there is harder part inside that also doesn't fit so well into its ejection port either, but does go in with some light force to bend it in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great rail, blocks rear sight, May 5 2015
Mounts perfectly onto my Ruger 10/22 Takedown. It provides a much more secure grasp for my QD scope and offers more positioning points than the factory rail. I would have given it 5 stars but it covers too much of the rear sight, rendering them mostly useless with this rail attached. As another reviewer stated, the channel could have been shallower.

If you like to switch between iron sights and optics, there are other options out there...

4.0 out of 5 stars 4/5, April 8 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Hopefully this thing will work if/when the time comes. It would be hard to know for sure unless you can find some automotive glass to test it on. According to the insert, there are versions out there that include a key ring, lanyard and/or sun visor clip. This particular one is just the key ring.

A model with a steel or titanium body would be the ideal option, with a permanent sun visor clip attached.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Gold Plated, Still Good, April 5 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works as intended for me. Connects my 27" iMac to its Samsung second display via Thunderbolt to HDMI. I believe the primary photo should be corrected as it shows a gold plated HDMI connector, but it's definitely not. Gold plating is supposed to resist corrosion, be more durable and improve signal transmission. I'm still happy with it for now so the plating issue is more of an FYI.

5.0 out of 5 stars pocket was good enough for a cable and stylus pen, April 5 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Before switching to the iPad Mini 2, I used this on my iPad 3 for a couple of years and it served its purpose perfectly. Zero wear and tear with daily use/travel, pocket was good enough for a cable and stylus pen, great snug fit for the tablet. I bought a similar one for the iPad Mini and couldn't be happier this time around as well.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's larger than what I need it for but hey I suppose that's not a bad thing. Closes shut nicely. I wanted something low-cost and functional to use here at home and to bring to the cottage without paying triple the price for some heavy ceramic version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great physical size, Feb. 12 2015

Great physical size, enough storage for everyday stuff. I wish it would have came with some type of small lanyard but I scavenged one off of another electronic.

Stays put, hasn't fallen off or needed adjustment yet. I use a Magpul iPhone case and with this on it doesn't quite clamp down like it should, but still holds just fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fits a little snug with a smart cover but just enough that it's not going to ..., Feb. 12 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had a similar version for my iPad 3, so when I upgraded to a retina iPad mini I opted to try it out again. Fits a little snug with a smart cover but just enough that it's not going to rattle around in there.
