Comparing Bolton Technical Long Ranger and previous parabolic dish model

I have used custom built hardware with both openWRT and Rooter for my 4g connection, as well as t-mobile's hardware, unfortunately in order to use their new 5g home internet I have to use their hardware, but thankfully I can still hook up my antenna's. So I have a pair of the Bolton Technical parabolic antennas on my roof that I am using and they have been working well, however I noticed now that Bolton has released a new version that they are calling the Long Ranger. It appears to me that everything is the same aside from the feed horn and from looking at the technical drawings I can find the mounting point is the same. I would like to upgrade to the new horn since I primarily run on band 2 and the gain of the newer horn is much improved in that range, not to mention it no longer requires adjustment. I contacted Bolton and from what I inferred from our conversation the newer horns are able to be purchased alone, but but after telling him the antenna I have now they told me the mounting point isn't the same, however I call baloney. I was hoping someone out there had the new model and could let me know the spacing of the mount holes on the "new dish" so I could match it to mine. Like I said I have already done some research after they told me and I am fairly certain it is the same, I just want to double check before I get back to them. If this is not an appropriate place for this please let me know and I will be glad to relocate/remove it. Thank you for the help.

This appears to have little to do with openwrt, so probably doesn’t really have a place on this forum. But if these antennas are (or were) used with openwrt supported hardware, it would be better for this to be in the hardware category.

Please ask the manufacturer about the spacing of the mount holes, he should know best.
