Yes it'll work, same lock. Sorry I normally keep tabs on this section since not many seem to own these knives (or legally can). If you have any other questions feel free to PM me and I'll try to help, that way your thread doesn't get overlooked. This section doesn't get a lot of traffic.

Quick search turned up nothing but a site that my antivirus flipped out over. Hopefully these are just out of stock and not discontinued.

Thanks for checking, David. I’ve been looking off and on since January. I was able to pick up an orange Autonomy, btw. I could tell immediately that I might come to feel the same as you about that knife, given time to bond with it. It seems like a tool you can absolutely count on. Funny, but I didn’t have the same reaction to the Autonomy 2, fine knife that it is.

I’m also in the market for one of these kits and called SFO a couple of weeks ago, was told to keep checking the website. They are due in any time but unfortunately, there’s no way to sign up for email notification.

You can add extensions to Firefox, Crome, and Chromium-based browsers (Brave, Opera,etc.) that can check sites for changes. This way you don't have to remember to check everyday.

I have a few of these kits for my various autonomy(2) knives. The kits work for both models. Also the kits distinguish between satin and black, which makes the only difference being the color of the replacement screw. On the autonomy 2’s I’ve taken apart, I reused the original screws after cleaning the threads. Which is to say if you’re not worried about the color, just buy whichever that comes up for sale.

Also, these kits go in and out of stock frequently. If they’re not available now, just wait and it should be back shortly.

"Shortly" is a vague term. I haven't seen them in stock for months (years?) and last month I set an automatic hourly check on the page and they have not shown yet. Maybe I'm just missing the short window they actually have them in stock?

I buy them in person at SFO. Never ordered them online. Whenever I had asked and they weren’t in, they were back in stock by the next time I went in. I have every autonomy(2) model and a kit to support it fwiw.

I did some Googling and found 2 sites that supposedly sell the spring kit. I'm not too familiar with the sites though. They both have them on clearance. I won't post links since I can't verify legitimacy.

I did a quick search for the Spyderco part numbers and these two came up. Usually if Trend Micro says to avoid them it's a pretty good idea.
