I don't want to say your wrong but the 4466 was one of Remington patterns and one of the most prized.

Perhaps you could kindly provide an image of an authentically produced Remington R4466 built back in the day??.
I wish I had one to take a pic of but I don't.I will see if I can scan the one I'm looking at out of the book and post it as soon as I figure out how.
But it say's "R4466
LENGTH CLOSED:3 3/4
It is my favorite pattern.
ok but does this answer the question; is it fake, built from parts, or the real deal????
to add fuel to the fire, Price/Zalesky has the R4466 at $5200
Yes, a little vague on specifics on that particular section, but there's the listing.. No details like, dates, closed length, handle options, and such but its there.
That certainly seems like a more realistic price.
I just copied what was out of the Remington Knives Past&Present.
From what I can read it came in stag only.
Yes it is a fake.
I thought the same thing.
I'd still like to see a good picture / image of the original authentic Remington R4466... anyone??
Thanks for the discussion, boys, but now I want one.
Well, I never thought to check LG4. I must have seen at least one, or I would not have listed it that way.
Page 58 of C5 catalog, genuine stag handles. There it is. And yes, I have seen them.
More of an oval handle die than the 1988 equal-end version.
Not listed in Mel Brewster's BULLETS book. Not listed by Price/Zalesky in Official Guide.
And the OP knife is still a fake.
Stewart and Ritchie (Remington Knives past and present, 2005) lists R4466 as a "muskrat bullet" [sic], "spey and muskrat" blades, "genuine stag", 3 3/4". It's on page 156.
And the price? [drum roll] ............. $5,000.
The sellers original listing was apparently withdrawn.. Here's the new listing by the seller with the same knife. His new rambling description is entertaining..
My brother-in-law sent me these photos of his "moose bullet" for sharing in this discussion. Poor condition and poor photos, but another of the similar bullets. It's R4353, and called a "Moose" in Stewart and Ritchie's book (Remington Knives past and present, 2005). BTW, this pattern had the bullet facing the other way (also shown that way in advertisements - according to my b-i-l).
