    Finally got around to taking a bunch of pics of knives I have had for while. This one a minty Remington piece I got for a pretty good price about a month or so back.........

    It's a Camillus-built Remington R103 Ranch Hand Bullet Knife from 1999. It's 3 1/2" closed Jack pattern with brush finished 440A stainless blades, nickle/silver bolsters and shield, brass liners and pins, and jigged Brown Delrin scales. Blades are swedged and the mainblade has a long pull, and both have nice sharp edges....

    Fit and finish is real good and virtually seamless.........

    And it's got some real stout backsprings which I like. It came mint in it's original box with all the proper paperwork.....

    For me, another great addition to my Remington collection. And from back when they were made by the oldest Cutlery factory in the US.

    Wow, beautiful. Wouldn't expect fit and finish like that from Remington.

    From Camillus.
    Remington stopped making knives in the late 30s-early 40s.
    They say the universe has been here for something like 13 billion years.
    And what do I get?
    A lousy three score and ten!
    I guess I must be using someone elses' leftovers, now.

    Nice score. I don't know why but those bolsters are really nice looking.

    As Brian mentioned these were actually made by Camillus for Remington. I have a few others of similar F&F. And while not all the Camillus built pieces I own are impeccable, I don't own one that is bad. Camillus knew how to build a knife.


    Thanks bud.
