I thought I read somewhere that there were steel liners molded into the G10 for the clip screws. Got my order in today at KC. Already shipped.

I don't have access to a scale; but, to me the new back lock Manix 2 is lighter than the ball bearing lock G10 Manix 2. Also, the G10 scales and the blade stock is thicker than on the ball bearing lock G10 Manix 2. I've attached some pictures. Sorry for the cell phone picture quality.
–– EDITED TO ADD ––
I forgot to mention that the new back lock Manix 2 does not have stainless steel liners.
if you don't mind, could you please post a back to back thickness comparison?
Here is a picture of the new back lock Manix 2 (top) and the G10 ball bearing lock Manix 2. Again I'm sorry the picture quality and angle isn't better. It's hard trying to balance the knives with one hand and take a cell phone picture with the other. FWIW, according to my measurements, excluding the pocket clip, the total width of the handle on the back lock Manix 2 is about .5 of an inch. Excluding the pocket clip and the protruding polymer ball bearing cage, the handle on the G10 ball bearing lock Manix 2 is 7/16 of an inch. I hope that helps.

There are threaded steel inserts imbedded in the G10 scales to anchor the pocket clip screws.

It definitely looks to be a beefy knife that will take some serious use.

if this sells than we get an XL. I would be surprised if it isn't on the list but dependent on sales

BAsed on the response, I think it will sell really well.

Make it in S110V and blurple and it's a done deal for me. Probably buy 2.

I'll take one too. I'm sure if it sells well you will see s110v regular production as well as other sprints

It looks like this Manix lacks the superfluous jimping of the standard G10 Manix2. If so I really, really like that.
I agree on the jimping/serration, but only half way... with a glove on the projecting liner portions really give a meaningful increase in control.

The rest of the time they just cause blisters :(

Loving the lack of metal jimping around the finger grip area! This is a good thing. Looks great.

More pictures please. Videos. Common folks. Trying to live vicariously here. Until I can't take it anymore and get one of my own....
