Yay or Nay? You tell me....




Here's a quick pic showing the new straight knurl next to my standard rifle knurl. They ran a few of these this morning then had to stop the machine for a few days and will resume next week. So here's your chance to speak up and tell me if you all think these are a go or not. I'm definitely having some with diamond knurl done for certain but wasn't as sure on these. I'd appreciate anyone with a strong opinion to post in the comments section. Thanks! :)

Yay - I like it - for some reason it seems to be more 'industrial' - tho' I think a brass version would suit it more.

I actually like the straight knurl more than the rifle one. It looks....well....slicker, I guess. Hard to describe, but I do like the straight knurl!

They all look nice, but diamond is what I'd buy. The straight does nothing for me.

P- Since youre asking, I don't care for the straight knurl. To me the pattern resembles the trailing strings at the bottom of a Flapper Girl's dress from the 20's. Sure Art Deco is cool (hint for future patterns) but when the style I see reminds me of the Gal that told my Grandpa to "23 Skidoo" I have to draw the line.... Take my opinon for what it's worth...It seems other people like it and I do appreciate being able to choose amongst options.

Is it the pic? or are the the grooves deeper on the straight one? kinda seems like it might get caught up on things with those edges/straight lines. Well lookin at the pic I kinda prefer the normal rifle knurl.I am curious as to how the diamond looks like tho.

Looks GREAT Peter! I too prefer the more industrial look. Save one for me (and I'm not kidding (:p )

My first impression was that I didn't like it at all, and I almost posted stating that, but I keep looking at it, and it's starting to grow on me. I think you should do both. Ummmmmm.... in titanium! :-D

Keep your eyes peeled on the collector threads for some new pics in the next several days. A couple of VERY special Atwoods went to a VERY special place earlier this week. :-)

Don't care for the straight knurl. Diamond knurl will likely appear more "industrial"...whatever that means...

But I vote "no" on the straight knurl.

Don't like the straight. Can't wait to see the side by side diamond & rifle.
