Default "Replica" Surefile items

Has anyone tried these guys out?

They offer a Surefire XM7 knock off for $25. Has anyone tried them? With the insane prices Surefire charges for their tape switches, it may be worth a gamble.

Cheap Chinese gear is always a risk. Some of it's decent, and some is junk. The best bet is to find some with lots of reliable user feedback to improve your chances of getting something decent.

watchmaker has a post here on inexpensive tape switches he's used, and he points out that poorly made ones can seriously reduce performance due to internal resistance:
