Jeff, this one compared to my GEC 72 has only slightly more up and down blade play. Both are very slight although the 72 feels more solid when locked up as the 4L has what feels like a pretty weak spring. I do have another DFC Queen 4L in Blackwood that is very sloppy and has side to side + up and down blade wobble. That as well as the poorly fitted shield bothers me enough that I rarely carry it anymore.Greg, if you have a GEC lockback (83, 72, 42), how does your Queen 4L compare in the lockup/blade play?
Although similar to the 4L the GEC 72 feels much more comfortable in hand with its slightly thicker and more rounded handle.
On a side note my Queen 3L Mountain Man also has very slight up and down play but locks up extremely solid, the downside is that it will almost bruise yer thumb depressing the back spring lock to release it.
