Think the cause is the same in both cases - the clip screws are a hair too long. That's not a problem when the knife is set up for TU carry, but when set up for TD they press against the washer (or directly against the blade on Moki knives). On your PM2 that may be beneficial, removing up some play that would otherwise exist, but on some other models it just causes excess drag.
Yes Paul, that's along the lines of what I was guessing. I also think maybe the clip, when screwed in, could have a minute effect on how flush the liner sits against the scale? Anyway, just a curious observation. Might be worth remembering when we get one of those OCD "my pm2 action is stiff" posts.
