Hey Matt,
Nice review. The shear size of the thing is enough to make me think twice, not to mention the price, $55!!! I guess it's better then going out and buying everything piece meal, and cheaper.
Go looking set up.

I think it's not a cheap set, but definitely a value set. A good barrel for the Brownings are around 10 USD, and these ones looks good. So if you deduct 4x10 USD from the price, you get a full array of PE for 15 - it's a bargain. You can even get it without postage fee from certain far-eastern netshops. Beside I know most of these frets from their M3 75mm GMC set and they well worth the money.

Thanks for the kudos on the review. It is a daunting looking set to say the least and while the price is a wee bit steep for some, as Laszlo pointed out, it is still a pretty good value. I'm trying to get caught up on some other things so I can get started on this. Its a slow task to say the least. Thanks again for the kudos. "Q"
