Ray-Ban 12k GF RB-3 Bullet Hole Shooter Sunglasses
Vintage Ray-Ban 12k GF bullet hole shooters are an icon of modern sunglasses design, full of innovation including the center ring "bullet hole", the "General" brow bar, shooter ear stems for the most secure fit possible, and the early Bausch & Lomb RB-3 lenses, the darkest of the 3 original B&L lenses but still significantly lighter and greener than the later G-15 lens. To produce these famous Ray-Ban Outdoorsman frames, Bausch & Lomb designed a process wherein 1/10 of the metal in the frame is 12k gold permanently bonded to premium grade steel specially alloyed for both strength and malleability. The center "bullet hole" (here the smaller and earlier of 2 sizes used) and "General" brow bar were both designed to improve balance on the face for hunters and shooters, but it's fortunate that these design innovations also happen to look super cool! The B&L RB 3 lenses measure approximately 2.5" x 2.0" at the widest points, and the unisex Ray-Ban12k GF bullet hole shooter frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple, and the top of the nose bridge is impressed Ray-Ban B&L 1/10 12k GF, part of the collection of a well known movie and TV industry figure and long time customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.
