The new clip doesn’t really pass the eye test when looking at it sitting out, but the function is really great and it looks nice and discreet clipped to my pocket.
Edit* I just want to clarify that when I said the clip didn’t meet the eye test, that this was not a reflection on MXG. It is exactly what I wanted and the workmanship is perfect. My first impressions were that the clip and knife combo looked a little weird and off balance compared to the factory clip. If it was all about aesthetics, I would keep the factory clip. It is just the nature of the beast when installing a deep carry clip to a PM2. I am actually starting to get used to the way it looks. I just had a little system shock.
Also, the clip was sold as a Para 3 clip. I was carrying the PM2 when I opened the package, so I went with it. I plan on buying one or two more, maybe of different configurations.
I was a little disappointed, at first, that the clip wasn’t shiny like the stainless hardware. But as I went through the day, I noticed that this matte color was less noticeable. After all, that’s one of the reasons for a deep carry clip. If I want to be blingy, I’ll grab the Advocate.
Any how, I just wanted to add a few things after carrying this knife for a day.
Here is another pic to show how it fits in the pocket.
