    Knifecenter, and I believe other companies, have this auto on sale $75 -
    Meyerco Darrel Ralph Military X-Ray AUTO 3-13/16"

    I ordered one based on the reviews and price. It seems maybe it's a bit big, but my Benchmade AFO is big too. I'll post a pic or two when I get it.

    These are a bargain! If I get really picky, the lip of the pocket clip needs to be bent down a little and the button is somewhat gritty, but overall it's a great knife. It fires faster than my Benchmade and I really like the safety/fire button. The blade is the same thickness of my Benchmade AFO too.

    I oiled the knife and worked the button/slide and that greatly improved the action. I also cut an orange with the knife and noticed that the black tint of the blade lightened up and was concerned until I realized I hadn't washed the blade. Sure enough after I washed the blade, it was the same somewhat lighter tint, so I'm assuming the original dark tint had a coating from the factory either to protect it during shipment or put on during the manufacturing process. The tint is pretty even and the blade is wicked sharp.
