    Kato Box Mech Mod and Clone

    Ok I was actually the first Aussie to own a Kato Box Mod, Heck I owned it for about 2 weeks before the second one was sold, there was only one register Kato dealer for Australia Don Chee, he's on facebook.
    Anyways I purchased a clone and it just came today. The clone was $200 cheaper than what I paid for the Original.
    How does the clone stack up against the real deal your probably thinking??.
    Looks 10/10
    parts swap-ability 10/10 <-- I took both apart and every part is interchangeable the top/bottom/screws/button/brass etc.
    functions 8/10 <-- The original Kato fire button is very smooth when you press it, the clone is scratchy and rubs. No misfires Its just not smooth, If they fixed that it would be 10/10, Probably just needs some sanding.
    Danger 8/10 <-- The both mods have battery vent holes, same size and location, but the clone had the vent holes under the 510 and should of been under the battery, It was assembled backwards, so I removed the screws and turned it around so the vent holes are under the battery like it should be, now its 0/10 Danger rating. You would think that the people assembling these would know where the vent holes go.

    jeff did you buy the clone just for comparisons sakes? LOL

    if anybody does want to buy just one of the clones, i have a contact for them. however they are asking 75USD per unit which I thought was a bit rich. would come in at just over 100usd shipped.
