So abandoned the idea. Still don’t really know why it wouldn’t work. My best guess was the different backspacers causing the issue.JMM wrote: ↑Sun Mar 08, 2020 3:23 pmWell, now, that's only partially true -- depending on your love level with Maxamet, I've seen first hand the blade swap into a G10 frame does work quite nicely. I personally don't love Maxamet that much, I mean, it is good stuff, but... Yeah, just not that great. I did buy the Fradon 4V Manix2, which costs about the same as buying a G10 Manix2 & LW Maxamet Manix2, so there ya go I guess.SteveMidwest wrote: ↑Sun Mar 08, 2020 3:14 pm
And let's not forget too. That we still have not gotten a Manix 2 in G10, with Maxamet!
All ribbing aside, it would be cool to see more Maxamet available, in any form. First thing after more 4V.
But yeah, you would think Golden has all the parts. Why haven’t we seen it yet? Getting both versions in Rex45. Already have s110v in both. Why not Maxamet?
Yes, why not the Maxamet too? It is odd.
We (Manix lovers) did get the 'Para' treatment for the Manix 2, with Rex 45 finally. 20 months after the others got it. I guess we'll have to be patient . . . . Sal.
And while on this subject. Let's just go ahead and ask for the upcoming (hopeful) Manix 2 Maxamet. To come in gray Micarta. How sweet would that be!
