Long time reader and just starting to post. I've picked up a N series 113 and in love. The OEM strap is small and have already sourced a replacement.

I really like the idea of a deployment buckle for serveral reasons. My writst is approx 7 3/4 inches. what size would you source? Also, what is the guide to buying straps for a deployment buckle?

....work well on the original deployant buckle, though other suppliers do exist.

The OEM sizes are changing a little right now but there only two variants for the average male wrist.

I have the same size wrist but was able to use the standard size strap. Since the tail is hidden it's not as big a deal to be toward the end.

Best thing would be to try one on though, of course.

Have had good luck with some after-market strap makers for deployment (yes, OEM is better, but maybe not 2-3x better) . . . You can customize the length, hit me up with an e-mail if you are interested in the manufacturer . . . Good luck, KH

Is there a place I can look for what the prices are for OEM buckles?

@ Kevin, what is your email? I'm curious to hear what you have done.

I have a 7.5 in wrist and the OEM deployants fit me perfectly - in the 115/95 size.
