I agree that the handle details on the Military are important to its overall ergonomic excellence. I like the PM2 and in some ways it fits my hands better. I have small hands and always thought the Mili would be too big... until I tried one. The choil and groove make it work, even in winter with heavy gloves
That (winter / glove use) combined with the best liner lock I personally ever experienced, is one of the big stengths of the Millie imho!
I’m basically never in heavy gloves, so “easy to release the lock” is an unmitigated negative for me.
For me the Millie linerlock (one of the best executed I have experienced) is generally slightly easier and a tad safer (concerning dropping the knife, the "fingers in the blade path thing" should really not be an issue, especially when a blade has a finger choil) to operate than a compression lock.
That is noticeable not only with heavy gloves, but also with cold and/or wet/greasy fingers.
So while both are not my absolute favorites, I prefer a well done linerlock slightly over any compression lock.
And I have to say: I can´t remember one single account where someone would have unintentionally would have released the Millie linerlock (this ot course does not mean that it never happens, just not to my knowledge).
Still I am glad for the many, many people who´ll love a comp.lock Military!!!
