In the history of American arms

Hi Folks,

Easy read:

Anyone here got a knife they hold in high regard? Not necessarily a Bowie. I like "kitchen cutlery".

Any of my many high carbon steel knives I love.  I have a very small paring knife that I made that I'm very attached to.  I have several Leatherman with damascus blades and S35VN blades.  The Leatherman is the knife I use many times a day...

Hi Folks,

Who has a Hi Standard?

Once upon a time, I could have bought a Hi Standard Sport King (two barrels) or a new Ruger Mk II bull barrel. I should have got both of them.

I don't have the bull barrel but do have the first generation of rugers 22.  I think it is called the red eagle and is the predecessor of the mark 2 made around 1949.  Still a nice gun with fixed sites that shoots a little to the left but not much.  My two most useful knifes are the swiss army and just a  falay knife seems to work best for slicing deer thin for frying.
Cheers

I looked at a picture of the ruger red eagle. The picture which pulled up looked like a ruger mark II and mark III. Are there major differences in these three?
