Fit and finish are excellent, Fortis has nailed it with this end plate. It is precisely machined and no rough edges anywhere (e.g.- cheap stamped steel end plates of other manufacturers). It does not need any "fitting" like some cheap end plates do. If you require a true black finish to match a receiver, Fortis has that locked down (MEGA, Seekins, Noveske, Spikes, BCM, etc.). Major plus is the weight savings, any one who has carried a long gun for a living, or on multiple deployments, knows the old proverb "Ounces equal pounds, pounds equal pain". This is one place to save a few ounces on a rifle build, as the cheap steel stampings can weigh 3 to 4 ounces (4 ozs. = 1/4 lb.) whereas, this Fortis QD End Plate weighs right at 1 ounce. In the market currently, this is the best option, highest quality, and drops weight. Well Done Fortis MFG.
