Been there done that. Couple of comments. They do supply just the "yoke" portion - their part # is 252152. I have some extra's and when one goes to hell send it back for replacement. The phone number I use to talk to someone with a heartbeat is 800-423-3537. When you talk to a rep get their name for future reference or followup as I have made that mistake before.
I have taken one that is just starting to "crack", "split" or whatever you want to call it and applied some shoegue to it and it just keeps on ticking. Now I shoegue the bottom side of the yoke when I get a new one and it seems to sure help. When shoegue cracks I just peel it off and reapply a new dab of shoegue.
I like the useability of the stoney point but they obviously have a weak point where you constantly fatigue the yoke where the legs split.
The fast majority of my hunting is either with a pack or scabbard on a horse and the flexibilty of the stoney point of on/off is well worth the pain of having to do a little maintenance.
I have one of the original I would hate to guess how many rounds have been sent using it - one year of prairie dog shooting up here is more than most people shoot in a couple years.
And - yes- the Davidson's have had the same experience according to a gal on the phone.
Nothing like the quality of something probable made in China.
