Default 1973 Texas Ranger Model 19-3

It may be that there is an old thread on this gun, but I can't find it.

I own two sets (an early one and later one):

The one on the left is the earlier one (shipped March, 1973) while the one on the right was shipped later (Aug, 1973).

You can see above that the older one had a darker color on the stocks as well as a different finish on the 6" Bowie knife.

Here together:

If you look carefully, you can see the right trigger guard has a special cut. Of course, the right stocks have a special cut-out.

It's time for a turn-ring. The newer one will go to the range this week. I believe that the factory lubrication may be a little dry. I'll give a range update on the 19-3 TR.
