    Hey all. Had been emailing somebody about standoffs and got interested in other hardware. If anybody here knows sizes and such could you link me to:

    -new pivot (is there better quality or one that stays adjusted longer without loctite?)
    -new screws
    -standoffs threaded
    -maybe replacement pin for lanyard hole? I don't use it
    -new stop pin
    -new clip screws
    -better pivot washers?

    I thought about that, too...it looks like he's trying to reinvent a Military...his way.

    not trying to reinvent the military guys. I originally just wanted stand offs, but why not customize it a bit if i can? An upgraded military if you will. I see you take offense to this.

    I'm not taking offense at all...I like to customize my stuff all I can. It just seems like you're not happy with a lot of what makes that knife popular. Scales and stand offs I can see....search this forum and you'll find a bunch that have already been done. Some of the parts are easier to replace than others, however. For a lanyard tube replacement...look into a tritium vial or gitd eyes or something along those lines. You never know...you may be helping others and along the way find people who want to do the same things to their knives, but lacked the sources to do so. look to the link I posted above...that place has a lot of great pieces/parts to customize your knife.

    I mainly need sizes. Stand off sizes, screw sizes. Then I can be off to my quest lol. I like the scales on the knife, those I'm keeping.

    the stock scale screws are T6 torx w/ a 2-56 thread, flathead. I replaced those with T8 2-56 flatheads.
    the clip screws are T6 torx button heads. I replaced those with T8 2-56 button heads.
    the standoffs are 0.165" in thickness, they are threaded for 2-56 screws.

    Gooeytek,

    Do you know if the hardware for the paramilitary 2 is of the same dimensions?

    the Paramilitary 2 uses T9 4-40 threaded screws, but I haven't modified any of mine yet because they already have standoffs :) the width of the standoffs is slightly less than the Military's.

    Simmer down now, no need to bust as artery.
    If you remove the screw and place it next to a ruler, you will answer your own question.

    You brought back a thread from last October just to throw a temper tantrum? It's not a mystery. One guy even gave a supplier to research. The OP can check length out himself, as RevDevil said.

    Keep the language family-friendly or go to Whine & Cheese to rant.

    sorry guys

    one too many beers that night.

    Does anyone know if the flanged standoffs will work or do you have to use the flatsided ones? In the pics above they look like the fancier flanged type

    Thanx for any help
