THERE WHERE A LIMITED QUANTITY of 500 OF THESE PUT OUT IN 1974, 1975 AND 1976. THIS PRECEEDS THE BEGINING OF THE LINE THAT STARTED IN 1982 WITH THE R1123. THE BULLET SHIELD ON THIS ONE IS ETCHED 1975- 4183. These models were never put in production and only 500 made.This knife has never been used and still has the original factory edge and both beautiful Delrin handle that has 1 minor crack on the back ring. All of thes knives have a hairline crack in that same spot.
It does not affect the function or anything. This knife is very very well built and has the best snap on a knive i have ever seen. The knife in the pictures will be the knife you receive. This will make an excellent addition to any Remington bullet collectors because its rare.Please follow and check out my other vintage knives for sale. I have new postings every few days.
