Ha, I was just in the same dilema as you. I bought a mini grip back in June and was smitten with the axis lock. I first was looking at the mini barrage but was a little turned off by the assisted opening negating the ease of closing one handed. I then fixated on a few other models all around the same price point starting with the 531, the 707 and then the 908. By that time I was getting close to the $200 (CAD) level. I then said screw it and get what I always wanted to anyway, the 940-2. It really is the quintessential EDC knife.
Oh and to add, a week after I got the 940-2, a co-worker said he had a well used BM knife for sale (cheap) and it turned out to be a Barrage. Real nice knife, opens startlingly quick and built like a tank. Still need two hands to close it though.

I highly regret trading off my full size Ritter Grip Another Benchmade is in my future, but not sure when. Currently, I'm drawn to the triage (not the blunt tip), adamas, and the 940. Being that hindsight is 20/20, I should have just bought aftermarket scales for the Ritter grip, as I didn't like the cheap feel of the stock scales...to each its own, though. Regardless, Benchmade has got the best customer service, which draws me toward them more than any other company.
