    So I took the plunge and ordered this beast of a knife from Amazon, which arrived today. However mine doesn't appear to be the same as the pictures I'm seeing online. Namely, there's no lockbar stabilizer on the frame lock. At all. Did they take that off of newer ones or did I get an old one?

    Some have reported that their stabilizers no longer say Zero Tolerance on them and are blank, but no one that I know of has complained about it being missing entirely.

    Can you post a pic?

    The 2014 model was revised a little, stainless lock bar insert with an internal LBS; the lock bar insert has a small tab that sits in a milled pocket keeping the lock-bar from over extending. :)

    I see now. Looks like that torx screw on the lock bar near the thumb stud is where that new steel liner insert is. Pretty neat!

    Will this be a change to the 0300 too? I'm going to hopefully get a 0300BW and I like the outside LBS...

    Wow! I call this an improvement. Must have something to do with ZT's contract with Hinderer.

    I've heard through the grapevine all new production 300 series will have the lock bar insert. Only a matter a time before the series is discontinued. Keep an eye on the secondary market for models with the LBS.
