    Maroon was gonna be my first choice but didn’t want a bright red. You have a closer picture?

    It's a very deep red, but I don't own the knife anymore as I now have a NFFSH with pumpkin G10 instead. But, I do have an RMD with it.

    I'll line them all up in a bit for a group photo while we wait for 9 PM

    Edit: T to B: Maroon, Green, Black. They darken a lot with water or oil where the green and black tend to show their "true colors" a lot more. It's more of an olive green/drab than tree leaf green for sure.

    Bikerector, your post helped out a lot! Thanks!

    I went with a Mega Comp w/Green Canvas Micarta

    Did I read somewhere where these will be numbered??

    Lastly, for those that are familiar with their timelines, when do you think we can expect shipment...estimate?

    Good choice. I’m a big fan of the green micarta. I just got home to share this pic. I hope it helps others who have not ordered yet.

    This is perfect! I’m happy with my choice! You said a little oil will darken the green up?

    Yes a little mineral oil will darken the micarta and will also be good for the swamp comp sr101. The mineral oil is good if you are going to be cutting any food, since it’s edible.

    Yup. I use mineral oil for my cutting boards and naked sr101.

    The payment options lists Paypal as an option when you get to that part of the ordering process.

    Midnight blue/Black micarta for me. :D

    I would say it's like 6-8 weeks, depending on how much they worked up before the order process. The TGULB from Busse was about 8 weeks long last fall.

    Comp & maroon, the AR 9.5 I received in this years grab bag will be going up for sale in the am. The style & SR101 combo is a real winner for me !
