#3 Could need tightening. Is the liner lock engaging solidly? Not sure I'd be so quick to send back.

Sorry OCD peeps.
For collectors the older ones will always be collectable, even with the release of the camo charges. Thats my take.
When you guys are talking about the plier rubbing you mean against the side of the handle right?Because my Wave + (and my Spirit) don't have that either, I was talking about the plier tip on the inside tools (see my loooong post above ).
