Ray-Ban G-31 Mirrored Bullet Hole Shooters and Sunglasses

1 One of the rarest of vintage B&L Ray-Bans, these amazing mirrored bullet hole shooters are avidly sought by collectors and fashion aficionados around the world. Vintage Bausch & Lomb G-31 mirrored lenses are rare in themselves, never produced in large quantities and now so widely counterfeited in Asia as to be absurd (and sad). These 62mm shooters feature the center bullet hole design which was created to improve the balance of the sunglasses on the face, and when coupled with the "General" brow bar these features were innovations unique to the early days of B&L Ray-Ban. The 62mm highly reflective G-31 mirrored lenses speak for themselves, reflecting glare while at the same time looking super cool. The cable wire Outdoorsman shooter ear stems provide a secure fit that you'll appreciate in active outdoor pursuits, and front frame and ear stems are all gold plated via Bausch & Lomb's patented technique that allows vintage Ray-Ban sunglasses to stand the test of time. The unisex frame measures approximately 5.375" temple to temple, and the 62mm Bausch & Lomb G-31 mirrored lenses measure approximately 2.5" x 2.0" at the widest points. The top of the nose bridge is marked B&L Ray-Ban USA impressed in the gold plated metal, previously owned by a well known celebrity and long time customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.

1A Step up another level with an identical G-31 mirrored bullet hole shooter but in a rare and early 12k gold filled B&L Ray-Ban frame - this mark indicates that 1/10 of the metal used in the frame is 12k gold and all on the external plating of course. They are identical in size and appearance, and the top of the nose bridge is marked Ray-Ban B&L 1/10 12k GF impressed in the gold plating.

2 If you prefer the easy on and off of regular sunglasses, B&L Ray-Ban also produced this G-31 mirrored bullet hole design with traditional paddle ear stems in equally small quantities. They are identical in size, shape, appearance, and marks the those pictured below but have traditional paddle ear stems as you can see here in place of the shooter stems in vs482-1.
