Zcardepot did not design or manufactur any frame rails.
We went with another brand than Bad Dog as it is a very similar product that offered us a better value.
Did the company that we buy from copy Bad Dog products or any other companies? We do not know for certain.
Well then, if you take everything at face value, there's another manufacturer of frame rails out there, selling to ZCD instead of selling under their own name. Is it Zedd Findings? Can't imagine that somebody is making frame rails but not advertising. Is it MSA's manufacturer?
Basically, ZCD might be saying that he found a fabricator that will sell him someone else's design. If it's not BDP, then somebody else's design efforts were being skimmed. ZCD says explicitly that he did not design the rails. So we're back to buying the goods, just not being responsible for where they came from.
So, the mystery may not be solved, but at least he's not selling ill-gotten goods. But there is apparently a fabricator out there that will sell someone else's design. Maybe that's the real story. Or maybe ZeddFindings is teaming up with ZCD. That doesn't seem like something to hide though.
Alright, off the high horse. Carry on.
Edit - wrong MSA part.
