About the MP-1: The guy that made the user customizable knife has just brought that to the next level folks! MP-1 stands for 'Modular Platform' and is the next generation of design and precision to come out of the Hinderer shop!
Hinderer Modular Backspacer: Let's start with one of the coolest new features: the interchangeable backspacer. Sure, makers have sold different backspaces for their knives before. HOWEVER, the patent pending Hinderer backspacer allows the user to do it without taking the knife apart! You see, the backspacer is not a traditional backspacer at all, but rather an assembly the mechanically engages with the standoffs and is secured with one .050 screw (same size as on the LBS). The possibilities are endless with different materials, colors, and even different functions. You know Rick and the gang have some cool options being cooked up! The screw is just to hold the backspacer in, it is mechanically engaged with the standoffs, so it is incredibly strong once inserted.
Semi Internal Stop Stud: Rather than using the thumb stud as a stop like on the XM-18, the MP-1 actually has a second recessed stud under the front bolster that acts as both the open and stop against the titanium frame. This allows for the reposition of the thumb stud for easier stud opening.
Modularity and Compatibility: At the heart of the MP-1 continues the tradition of Hinderer Knives in allowing the user to customize their knives. In that regard, the MP-1 uses many of the components that Hinderer fans will already have in their collection allowing instant customization without having to buy all new parts.
