Just got my P4 in the mail...But the G10 feels different then my P3??

Here's a regular pic (Sorry phone camera)


Now with the clarity filter on



Seems to be a different pattern. Should I be concerned?

I would not be concerned. My BBS S90V Military and BBS M390 PM2 both have the "smurf blue" G-10 scales, but they are not precisely the same when it comes to the peel-ply pattern, there is a very subtle difference. So I'd reckon it's not out of the realm of possibility, and I doubt you should worry about your knives being legit (all things equal).
My collection so far: 52100 Military (2); 52100 PM2 (2); 52100 Para3; Stretch2 V-Toku; KnifeWorks M4 PM2; BentoBox M390 PM2; BentoBox S90V Military; Police4 K390; S110V PM2; SS Delica AUS-6; Wayne Goddard Sprint VG-10
Wish list: Hundred Pacer; Sliverax; Mantra; 52100 PM2 SE; Kapara
