Open the knife to a 45 degree angle. Peen each side with a very small hammer and light taps.
Peen first side-test
peen second side- test
repeat as necessary
Do not bend the guards.
Thanks Bill - will give this a try. :)

Re: AGA 13" Batwing Problem

It's almost always loose guards. They flop, and prevent opening. Bill - Makes sense to me as they both have some movement when in the locked position. Can see the movement here on the back guard, and the front guard also has movement but not as much. I'm not sure exactly how to tighten them, using ...

Thanks for the responses here. Knife is still having problems and is inconsistent etc. A real head scratcher, used to work very well :?

Re: AGA 13" Batwing Problem

Thanks Bill. Tried that and it improved the issue some. When I move the blade manually heading to the locked position, I did notice it gets very tight at the spot shown in the photo here. It's a strange one, knife will fire and lock up fine say 4 to 5 times in a row, then it will hang a time or two ...

AGA 13" Batwing Problem

Hi Bill - I have a 2011 AGA Campolin 13" Batwing that opened and locked up tight for many moons. Recently, the knife will often fire and lockup correctly, then other times it hangs up and doesn't fully open and lock up. I have tried WD40, gun oil, grease etc. Recently tried grease after reading anot...

Thanks R&R. Over 3/4ths of an inch at the widest point. I too like the design. Post up some pics of your examples with horn, would like to see them.

Campolin Maltese Cross - 11" Stag

Hi Gents -
Here is one I haven't looked at lately. Very nice heavy, thick knife with dagger blade and brass liners. Smooth action, tight lockup and well built. Circa 2011.
Cheers -
Jeff
