    Posting this info for reference.

    The Camillus Classic Cartridge Series consists of 7 knives:

    CCC-1 -- .45-70 Gov't (Large Bullet Trapper)
    CCC-2 -- .30-30 Winchester (Equal End Moose)
    CCC-3 -- 7mm Mauser (Large Toothpick)
    CCC-4 -- .257 Roberts (Banana Trapper)
    CCC-5 -- .45 Colt (Baby Bullet Trapper)
    CCC-6 -- .44 Remington Magnum (Bullet Lockback)
    CCC-7 -- .270 Winchester (Camp/Scout)

    An interesting note from Tom Williams, former Camillus Historian:

    A group shot. Left to Right: CCC-1, CCC-2, CCC-3, CCC-4, CCC-5. Below those: CCC-6, CCC-7

    Good thread full of info on these knives... thanks for sharing! :) Since this seems like it will likely become a future reference place for info on these knives, I have a couple questions to add and maybe we can find the answers to... 1st.. Does anyone have the total production numbers for each one of these knives in this series? 2nd.. Does anyone know what the issue price was when each one initially came out? Thanks again :)
