    A MOAB XL - I'll take it (especially with Res C)! :)

    When you put the MOAB and the Alpha Regulator together, they produce a love child - the AR-15!
    (I mean come on! We can't have an AK-47 and not the AR-15... One icon without the other just isn't right! We need the Ying AND the Yang!)

    Yup... The lovechild would have blade DNA from the MOAB and handle DNA from the Alpha Regulator (Res-C)... not the other way around - that's the eRATicator!

    AR-15 - put a Res C handle on a 15" MOAB blade - let's make it happen Jerry! :)

    Honestly, I can’t believe that Jerry hasn’t already thought about making an AR-15.
    It’s getting him to make it.
    That’s the hard part.

    I’m thinking the AR-15 would just be an AR 9.5” with an extra 5.5”.
    I dunno, should we start a “Bring on the AR-15” thread? Kinda feels wrong to morph this thread into that. I’ve been giving it some thought, and I think it is WAAAAAY more likely that we’ll see an AR-15 this year than a MOAB.

    I mean we can still get a MOAB blade profile at 15", and a comfort handle... It's essentially going to be a Basic MOAB... Just with an even better handle, I think.

    AR-15 just had a better ring to me than "basic MOAB". I don't think it detracts from what we've looking/asking for.

    On the other hand, if we forgo the Resperine-C handle for the micarta/g-10 grips, doesn't matter what you call it... I'll still want one!

    An Ultra Light MOAB (ThINFI) would be most welcome to me. Somewhere in the 3/16" to .20" range, since INFI already had the exceptional toughness. That'll make it Swift and Deadly - and nice to carry. Like an eRATicator XL in INFI.

    I'm sure he has thought about an AR-15 knife model, and I think it was mentioned in this thread before. I feel they would sell like all-you-can-eat pancakes! :eek::D Call it AR-15 or Basic MOAB, I don't care - if it has a MOAB style blade with a FHFG and a Res C handle, then I'll buy it (and so will others)! :)

    It's not too late for a thick and thin AR-15 (aka Basic MOAB)! :)

    Add 5 inches to that eraticator blade and put a res-c handle on it. .20-.22 INFI
    That would be sooo cool!

    I have said a few times I would love to try a HOGB8 with an extra 6" of blade length; add 7" and call it an AR-15 - I'd be fine with that too! :)
