Recover Tactical makes aftermarket grip, brace and rail systems. You can see our reviews of some of their products here and here. On Friday, October 30, Recover became the latest victim of random, unexplained social media exile when they lost their Instagram page.
Their Facebook page remains available…at least for now (Facebook owns Instagram).
Our contact at Recover tells us that they contacted the Instagram drones and received this message:

But that was over a week ago and dozens of emails to IG central command yield replies acknowledging that the page was “accidentally deleted” but provide no further help. That’s 50,000 followers down the drain for them.
As Recover told us . . .
It is dangerous relying on these platforms that have no recourse and the ability to make unilateral decisions without consequence.
Yes. Yes it is. It’s something that firearms-related sights have been dealing with for a long time and will no doubt continue to battle. And with the pending change in administrations, the situation isn’t likely to get better any time soon.
