I liked the maroon micarta with it, but it's hard to get a bad looking micarta, IMO. I feel like natural canvas is a classy micarta, reminds me of kahki pants. Don't think I want it for such a knife who's character is more of a bruiser than a delicate slicer.

Black micarta is a decent color, but I've recently been fascinated with the green micarta which is more of a dark tan until wet.

Maroon micarta w/ comp on left. Well used black micarta with strip job on right.

I think I'm going with the green coating again. I just really like the shimmer it has.

Green micarta on green coating. Might do this again.

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

Ive been going back and forth on what color micarta to get. I’m hoping it will come to me as I’m ordering. Swamp comp and .......?

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.

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 !
