”The BT3000 is the earlier iteration of this saw; later was the BT3100. As far as I know, the only change was to boost the motor amps from 12 or 13 to 15. Can someone verify whether this is true? ”

I can’t verify all the changes, but I’m fairly sure some of the later BT3000’s also had 15 amp motors too, though earlier versions were definitely 13 amps. IIRC, there were also some changes to the shim design, which was a weak spot on the the BT3000. The guys at BT3 Central could tell you definitively off the top of their heads what the differences are.

My understanding is that the Cman version is indeed made by Ryobi, and that most parts are interchangeable with the BT3000 and BT3100.
