"Just had another look. The 941 lockback is pretty common, but the 1969 Plainsman is a rather scarce model"

"Greg, yeah that's not surprising, I suppose there aren't that many serious Puma collectors around, but surely someone will recognise what is in that lot and pay a good price. Its the Trappers Companion that should lift that price, even…"

"I had a look at the items, although I can't really get involved, not being in the US. Lot of three Pumas...... One is Model 6385 Trapper's Companion (Right Hand Version) and has to be mint given the RC decal is intact. Although I already…"

Great to have you here, Greg!  And have to compliment your taste in knives!  I've always appreciated Randalls from a distance, though eventually I'd like to add one to my collection -- any of their wasp-waisted fighters (especially the 1-7), and there are a couple hunters I really like too (but because of that distance, I can't really recall the model numbers at the moment)...  Anyway, regardless, welcome, Greg!
