Looks like a good concept.  Wouldn't mind trying one.

Did he do any sort of "surf" test? How much muck mire and cold weather did he subject it too?

There was a VERY interesting article in a recent issue of SWAT magazine, it may still be on the stands,  where some people had thier contractor prep course while it rained for two weeks solid.  Mud got into EVERYTHINGExcellent Aftermarket stuff melted off. There is even a picture of muddy AK with a 9mm case that got worked into the area behind the hammer.
 
You hear how great things work.  Often it is only on a clean dry range on a nice warm day.
