The precision ground and highly polished glass B&L Kalichrome C lens is a yellow high contrast lens free of waves or any other defects that could distort vision or cause eye strain. B&L Kalichrome lenses are famous worldwide for their ability to intensify and enhance the visual spectrum, and sporting enthusiasts and pilots everywhere swear by these glasses when in difficult visibility situations. You'll be amazed at how objects seem to leap out at you in any light condition, providing a degree of visual acuity that is unsurpassed by any other optical quality sunglass lens by intensifying light and increasing contrast. The bullet hole shooter sits a bit higher up on the face with the brow bar and the circular ring between the lenses, or "bullet hole", improving balance on the face. These vintage Ray-Ban Outdoorsman Kalichrome sunglasses have cable temples to provide a secure fit in even the most active outdoor conditions. The yellow mineral glass Kalichrome lenses measure approximately 2.375" x 2.0" at the widest points, and the unisex 12k GF bullet hole shooter frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple is impressed Ray-Ban B&L 1/10 12k GF on top of the nose bridge. Rare.

3 The earliest B&L Ray-Ban Kalichrome bullet hole shooters c 1950s had very thin bakelite brow bars versus the slightly larger brow bars seen over the next 40 years and a slightly smaller bullet hole opening. They are otherwise identical in size and appearance and are impressed on top of the nose bridge in the gold plating B&L 1/10 12k GF. Early and rare.

4 By special order Bausch & Lomb produced these 12k GF Kalichrome bullet hole shooters with a small circular reading glass area formed into the Kalichrome lens itself at the inside bottom. It's hard to see for it's all part of the same Kalichrome yellow mineral glass as the rest of the lens but has low magnification to assist in reading or sharpshooting - you can see the round bifocal area here in photos 1 and 2. Rare.

Please Note: These are all very early Bausch & Lomb production from the 1960s and 1970s. We apply the highest possible condition standards we can to still be able to offer such rarities, but if you expect them to look shiny and new - and if we ever saw them like that we'd know with almost total certainty they were fakes - you should buy something else. These are true collector items that can be worn and enjoyed after having survived in great condition 50+ years.
