I think UTG gets a lot of crap on the Internet, some may be warranted. I know there are quite a few stories like previous ones and that's the thing, you get what you pay for. I have a huge UTG duffel bag that works great, but would I trust my life on UTG stuff, nope, definitely not. Would I trust it to hold my pants up, again no. I would buy their rings though, if they were to fail I have iron sights to fall back on. I guess that's why people refer to it as mall ninja stuff, it's stuff more for looks and cool factor than bulletproof reliability.
Just be aware that they are not the best quality and you won't be disappointed if/when it breaks.
