    I took the plunge and removed the coil spring from my 585-2 Mini Barrage (what a bear that thing was to disassemble and put back together). During the reassembly process, that small metal backspacer was intentionally left out to create a full flow through design. My question is, will this cause any foreseeable issues with the knife holding up etc.?

    Note: It functions flawlessly without the coil spring and safety lock/latch installed.

    The G10 and liners are pretty rigid. For light use I'd say you'll be ok.

    That's kinda what I was thinking as well. I mean, this thing is just going to be used for opening boxes etc. It's not even a hard use knife to begin with.
