i am trying to rack my brain to think of a "collector grade" piece that magpul has ever built or designed.

the only thing i would buy of theirs are their mags because they are cheap. i bought their mbus pros too on a whim but they arent better than troys. what quality part have they come out with that was truly impressive?

No way, not interested even for $80.

I suspect unusable pocket clip that jacks up your clothes and can't be used one-handed, plus it's generic looking and lame profile.

Tanto shaped tips are terrable as an everyday knife. I have an Emerson CQC7 thats been collecting dust for 2 decades.

I have a CQC7 also, and carry it regularly. I actually enjoy tanto blades, I think they have their benefits, and can open boxes just as good as any other knife!

If you think their SGA is impressive or innovative, don't look at the Mesa Tactical Urbino. That would give you a stroke.

You believe Mesa invented the short LOP pistol grip shotgun stock, really, that’s kinda funny Maybe their Limbsaver butt pad makes it innovative

I use Mesa’s shell holders, great product, still not innovative


I prefer the SGA because it’s a hybrid between a pistol grip and standard grip stock, the SGA buttstock can also be fitted to the M14 Blackfeather stock allowing non-free State M1A owners a legal modular stock option...Its truly unique, innovative and adaptive to other platforms.

um, mesa did invent it for the 870. no one did it before them for the remington 870. they also developed the telescoping stock for the 870 and then had others copy them. if you had experience with it you would understand that it isnt simple a length of pull (you meant short LOP im sure) mod but far more options for height adjustments to cheek weld than the SGA which you have to buy another kit in order to get only two heights.

Very basic with great materials. I'd say price is equal with hinderer, Stryker, sebenza etc. Im in. Ther lock looks very interesting

Price is $425. They are selling them in 200 lot production runs they release every 2-4 months. Made BY Magpul, not contracted out to anyone else. Titanium handles, S35VN steel, ball bearing pivot, etc - nothing new really.

First run was this all black one. Second run will likely be the same materials but with a stonewash finish on the blade and scales. Third run looks like it will be a stonewash blade with black micarta scales. It looks like eventually they will start putting out actual production models and not just do limited runs. They also mentioned they may be doing a less expensive version of the knife in the future.

I don't particularly care for this knife. Yes it is undoubtedly a nice knife. It looks good and the materials are great, but they are asking for a premium knife maker's price on their first ever folding knife. This looks to be marketed at the typical high speed low drag Magpul fanboy and not an actual knife enthusiast/hobbyist. Honestly for the type of hard use equipment they manufacture and sell, this knife should have been sold with phos bronze washers, and not bearings.

The secondary locking mechanism is nothing new. Ruike (A subsidiary of Fenix flashlights) has this feature on knives that are $30. It is simply a lockbar blocker. Ball bearings are also found on knives $30 or less (ex: My Ganzo FH31 I just purchased has what appears to be ceramic ball bearings, carbon fiber on top of G10, and D2 steel for under $30).

What can a clip point, drop point, spear point, sheepsfoot, warncliffe, razel, etc do that a tanto cant? For everyday purposes a tanto is just fine.

This knife is not a tanto though. Modified warncliffe or reverse tanto would be more accurate. The cutting edge is straight throughout and there is no extreme change in angle of the cutting edge as you would see on a traditional tanto blade. This blade will perform no differently than a sheepsfoot shaped blade.

0.17" blade thickness won't make it super slicey especially since the grind only goes up about halfway the height of the blade, but it's a good balance of slicing and durability. Website doesn't specify if it's a hollow grind or a flat grind but if I had to guess I would say flat grind.

They just wanted to make a knife. No guarantees it will be a great one. Just because SUREFIRE makes great lights, didn't mean they could make great knives. Same here. It isn't their specialty. As far as price, they say if they feel like it they might do future releases more like a production folder where the price would be much lower. Most people are going to be surprised if a mag accessories company hits a home run with a midtech folding knife.

I'd be surprised if it beats a $200 ZT (who makes great knives and that is their specialty). I have been wrong before.

Your right, that Magpul is not a Tanto, and it looks like it is ground on both sides of the blade so It probably would not give me the trouble Tantos has. My dislike of Tantos come from my CQC7 and another Benchmade I had (Stryker?) For the 99% of the uses I need a 3-4" pocket folder for, they suck. Opening a box, the cutting edge near the tip is parallel to what your cutting, either you have to tip the knife heavely to use the tip or drag your knuckeles along the box to cut where the main edge and front edge meet. Slicing a long piece of cardboard, it wont cut straight since one side is flat and the other sided is sharpened at an angel like a lopsided wedge. Gently using the edge of a knife to peel a sticker or tape off something, I don't want an inch of flat blade scratching the surface when just a tiny bit of a curved blade would be touching.

Looks pretty horrendous imho, and it's going to be prohibitively expensive to boot. Magpul fanatics will buy them up, I'm sure but I'm a hard pass.

It looks as good as a pump shotgun all Magpul'd or a perfectly good bolt gun all Magpul'd... hahah. IMHO. Yeah, kind of like a Quartermaster or one of those FURY's at BIG5 (15 years back). Kind of a retro design, huh.

Best thing Magpul has done lately besides mags is the SL line of carbine handguards. Love those things.

I really liked the way the Surefire Charlie profile and blade shape looked... it was just a lot of other things that sucked. Grinds, action, flipper that wouldn't flip, lock-stick, etc... not their wheelhouse.
