Todd, one, admittedly, very small discrepancy, in your review you state:

Quoted Text

With just a quick reference shot I notice there are twelve holes molded on the cutting edge of the model whereas the original has fifteen…I do not think this is an issue at all with the model. An extremely minor issue and even less so if any weathering is done to show excess dirt buildup on the blade and cutting edge.

I'm assuming you are referring to the center part of the leading edge of the blade here. In the Desert Eagle book there is a very clear photo of the blade, and there are 12 holes on the leading edge, so Meng got it right. If you have a pic with fifteen holes I'd guess there are different versions of the blade and Meng based theirs on the 12 hole one. Like I said, a small discrepancy but there you go. (If we are talking about totally different things here...sorry )

Hi Mike, Thanks for the info...I had thre shots I found while looking, each having 15...lol 12...15...what is 3 holes between friends? After taking another quick look, it appears that the Commercial version tend to have the 15 hole vs the IDF armored...even found one with a continuous edge instead of the three part!! Awseome because this give the builder room to do what ever they want to their builds!!

Thank you very much James!! Appreciate it!!
