Hello firediver, and welcome!
I recently purchased a serrated Native FRN. From what I understand, the newer FRN Natives have the black clip while some of the older ones had the stainless. The difference? Just color. The black one doesn't stand out as much against a dark pair of slacks.
My Native was supposedly just received from the factory and it does not have the Boye dent on the compression lock. In looking through the Spyderco on-line catalog, I do not see any reference to a Boye dent on the Native description so I would assume it has not been incorporated as of yet. (Veteran Forumites, please correct me if I am mistaken)
I can say, however, that my VG-10 Endura FRN that I just received has the Boye dent and it makes a big difference. At first it took some getting used to but after a while, it was second nature.
In all, my Native has quickly become my everyday carry. Handling characteristics are tops and the blade is awesome! Not too big, not too small, just right.
Best wishes in your quest for your Native Spydie. Fair warning, once you've been bit by the Spydie bug, there's no turning back! You'll just want another, and another, and another.... <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
