    Edit: Others haven't had the same problem, but my first order with Loki will likely be my last. I just got my rings today & they look good, but the shipping time was horrible at best. There had to have been a fluke somewhere along the line since Lion ordered his the same time I did & got his days ago... even though he lives thousands of miles further away from them than I do. 2 day shipping turned into 2 week shipping. Not convinced this was all the fault of the idiots at USPS, but perhaps.
    I am not sure it is fair to blame Loki...but then again, you are not known for just placement of blame, eh?

    I love my Loki rings. One thing about them, I had to make a minor adjustment to my KFL bottom screw to make the contact on the ProVari with my KFL original. With my KFL-plus, for whatever reason, it was a non-issue. With my IGO-T and IGO-L, it was a non-issue. I have adjusted my KFLs so that the bottom screw is aligned with the air intake hole on the side, and that could be part of the reason I had to adjust again, but be aware of this. The Loki rings are thicker (no gap, fits snug) which I like and am happy to make the adjustment for the tight fit.

    I like them better than the Tatroe Rings. Well worth the extra five bucks. Here they are, two brushed stainless and one black delrin. I also ordered the black 9mm hollow point bullet drip tip, pictured here on the IGO-T.

    I'm seriously considering it. I think the black would look nice on mine, even though I think the tank is a 24mm. I saw they had a discount recently. Too bad I missed out on that. Do they do that very often? Or was it a special Black Friday thing?

    That was the only sale I have seen them offer. I have been following Loki for a couple of months now.

    I agree - I have both the Loki Labs ring and the Tatroe ring and while the Tatroe rings are good quality, the Loki Labs ring is better.

    I said it could possibly be the window lickers at the USPS, it wouldn't be the first time they screwed up something... it wouldn't be the first time today they screwed up something. But when there's several days between 'info received' & any actual movement, that very likely could be the shipper plugging it into the system & not actually getting the package into the hands of the ....... Either way, it'll be a long, long time before I get another Provari, if ever & I got a ring for each of my current ones. I really don't care for any of their other products all that much, so I just don't see myself being a repeat customer anyhow.

    A term of 'endearment'. My hatred of the USPS goes back many, many years. I have more respect for the kid flipping burgers at McDonald's. They're nothing but a necessary evil that keeps private shipping company's prices in check.

    I really wish I hadn't seen this thread. I was fine. I was happy. Then, all of a sudden, there was something that could make it even better. Looks like I'll have to pay full price. Accessories are a must.

    My Lokies are effed up as well. Ordered the same time as my Provari. The same shipping method - and - [nearly] the same shipping costs ($30, for a $20 item. Ya, I know!). Provari arrived way back ~ Lokies haven't.

    In fact, the day my Provari arrived - Loki sent me the Tracking#, which till date shows "Electronic Info Received" on the USPS site. Craig (Loki) says' it's a fault of the USPS ~ but I never had any such 'problem/s' with USPS anytime. Even the Provari tracking (same timeframe as of Loki) was spot-on.

    I thus wonder, too!
