    Wanted to know when the DP RMDs came out and if there is a way to still acquire them? Custom shop possibly? Any info would be highly appreciative, thx!

    You could only order them through the custom shop. They take a standard rmd blank and drop the point on it. Shortens the blade a bit.

    They appear to high (blade height) to take a standard blank and remove stock to accommodate the drop point but I could be wrong. Seems they just don't cut the top 1/3rd of the spine from the point which creates the clip style.

    Maybe it doesn't seem that way, but that's how it was done. A bunch of folks over at the Swamp Rat forum (the Brotherhood) placed orders with the custom shop for drop point RMDs and that is how they did it. I think they did the same with a few R6s. There are photos comparing DP RMDs with standard RMDs and it is very clear a standard RMD blank was used. I don't think the custom shop is currently taking orders anyway.

    Appreciate all that feedback, suppose I'll have to try to find one on the forums but haven't seen any coming up. I'd certainly put some nice offerings up for one or two but will get back onto the SR Forum as well. Thx!

    amflud is 100% correct.

    There is one on the exchange right now. It is Worldwood's old setup that is combined with a scrapivore and esee pouch and arrowhead. It's the one with the green and black G10. I wish I had the coin to drop on it, I'd grab it as a backup. I can't remember ever seeing another DMD hit the EX.
