Ranger Grip 55 mod questions
« on: May 11, 2020, 09:03:40 AM »

Been thinking of the RG55 but I had planned removing the opener layer which I don't particularly need in an outdoors tool. I then thought of swapping the bottle opener for a small blade from a 91mm or even the main blade from an 84mm if it will fit. That would preserve the corkscrew which I use for knots and not leave an empty gap in the handle.

Any thoughts? I've never seen people modding the big stuff, what size pins would I need, would these smaller blades interact with the spring, etc?

All pins are 2.5 mm. You can use brass. The main blade's pin is stainless steel from factory. For the blades I don't know but the shape of the springs is not the same, nor the thickness.
