Ray-Ban 10k GF Bullet Hole Shooter RB-3 Sunglasses

1 Vintage Ray-Ban 10k GF bullet hole shooter sunglasses c 1950s - 1960s feature the early green Bausch & Lomb RB-3 lenses, the darkest shade of the 3 early variations of these lenses and far less common than the darker B&L G-15 lenses first introduced a few years after the Shade 3 lens. B&L Ray-Ban bullet hole shooters are an icon of modern sunglasses design and known the world over for how they revolutionized sunglasses - particularly those used by hunters and hooters - by incorporating distinctive and eye catching innovations. Those include the "General" brow bar and the "bullet hole" ring at the nose bridge both designed to improve the balance of the sunglasses on the face along with Outdoorsman "shooter" ear stems for the most secure fit possible. And of course you also get Bausch & Lomb original G-15 anti-glare lenses, the standard lens originally produced for use by the US military and still one of the finest lenses ever made regardless of manufacturer. The top of the nose bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban 10k GF on the unisex bullet hole shooter frame which measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the 62mm aviator G-15 lenses measure approximately 2.5" x 2.0" at the widest points. Few original B&L Ray-Ban bullet hole shooters remain in the world and nowhere will you find more selection than at the Vintage Sunglasses Shop, part of a fine collection of vintage sunglasses from Denver, Colorado. Rare.

2 Vintage B&L Ray-Ban 10k gold filled bullet hole RB-3 shooter sunglasses are identical in size and appearance but impressed B&L Ray-Ban 1/30 10k GO on top of the nose bridge. GO (Gold Overlay) was an earlier Bausch & Lomb marking convention pre-dating the later use of GF (Gold Filled) mark. Rare.

2A Step up another level beyond our already unequaled vintage condition standards with new old stock Ray-Ban 10k GO bullet hole shooters, impressed B&L Ray-Ban 1/30 10k GO on top of the nose bridge. Aside from some tarnish at the frame joints from many years of storage in a defunct optical shop's inventory (and easily removable with simichrome or similar products), it's pretty amazing to find Ray-Ban 10k gold filled bullet hole Outdoorsman sunglasses in mint, unworn condition.
