Note: The outside diameter of these bearings has decreased from 0.432" to 0.420"
Cage bearings that allow more balls to be placed around the knife pivot than standard cage bearings. Which provides more support for the blade and decreasing stress on each ball. The ceramic balls are captured in the disc but are still free floating to prevent binding.
Includes Grade 5 ceramic bearings pre-installed.
- 22% increased blade support over caged bearings of same size
- Improved ball pathing around pivot
- Less pivot screw tightening required
- CNC machined from solid phosphor bronze
- One set equals two individual cage bearings
These are better than the original bearings in my standard xm-18 3.5. The action and lock up is perfect now! I did have to grind down one bearing ever so slightly just to fit in the groove in the blade. I just used a fine ceramic stone and rotated the bearing a bunch to keep it as round as possible. It took 2 minutes tops. The other bearing didn’t require any modification. Still highly recommend!!
Awesome bearings!!! Made my knife way way way smoother!!! I will be buying these for every knife I own for sure!!!
I didn’t think the action on my Hinderer Jurassic could get any better but after I installed these bearings the drop action is more amazing. Hard to put this knife down now!!!
These are excellent. I have five sets total. Three hinderers, an SBD Evo Typhoon and a an apurvis primordial mk2. Couldn't recommend them more.
Put them in my xm-18 and wow, improved the action so much. Flips very good and falls shut.
