    Yup, you can see where it's countersunk for the clip/screws.

    You weren't lying! You did pick up a DLC sheepsfoot! Is that a Ti scale on there or is that the coyote or tan one? Any changes to hardware in the future?

    Yep, got it on Friday and love it. That is the OD green G-10 scale. Right now I am liking it as it is, so no plans to change anything right now. The only thing I may do is get an orange one like yours for the month of October :D

    Better now, fixed color and tint.
    And your post asking if I got the tan scale tells me I have to adjust the color on these photos. It doesn’t look like olive green now. Will update them in a little bit.

    Can anyone help me out here, I just acquired this 3.5” in a trade and was not aware that the front scale was not g10 until it showed up. Does anyone make an aluminum scale for the XM-18? It is thicker than my other knife with the ti scale but it’s metallic so I’m thinking it must be aluminum, and it’s also lighter than my all ti. Thanks

    Looks like there was a guy who made Aluminum scales for xm's back in 2015. It looks like his site is inactive. He was last seen in april. you may be able to message him and see if he was the one who made them.

    That's a cut-out or pocket and not a through slot. It's to add relief for moving the liner lock. It does not move with the liner.

    Here is a different angle.

    How do you like that lionsteel slipjoint? Really peaking my interest.

    They are great. It’s hard to go wrong with one: M390 blade steel, Ti liners/bolsters, good fit/finish, about $125 depending on scale material. I just wish they were more readily available.

    I’ve had examples since the first run of Roundheads (spear point). Those were my favorite but the Dom (sheepfoot) I just got may be now. I have been carrying the Shuffler (clip point) only because it’s micarta but now the Dom is in my pocket.

    As a novice collector, I find myself trolling the picture threads and must say that a large majority of the time when I say "I really like the way that one looks", it turns out to be be a Hinderer.

    I may need one of these.
