    My first time putting my scales on I used a block of wood with a hole drilled into it, and banged the shit out of the pivots with a mallet to get them in. I thought for sure that's as far as they'd go. I could definitely notice my Bali wasn't as tight as it was with the g10 scales.
    I requested a replacement clip from benchmade, and when it came in I tried your method to press them in further.
    It worked perfectly, thanks for the tip!

    I don't have calipers to measure the difference, it couldn't have been more than 3/10 of a millimeter, but DAMN it flips so much smoother now. I'll try to post before and after pics.

    Got the plain stonewashed and did the ano myself. These are really well designed, and they weighed in at 4.5oz. I'm looking forward to v4 as well!
