I believe the 1941 model of the Ranger Tech is rare. There was also a 1946 model, but it had end caps and the plating wasn't as nice, IMO. There is some disagreement regarding which is the rarer model, but I like the '41, probably because it's older Smile ...and shinier Smile Note the winged centre bar, common to both models. Mine came with the original pack of blades.  There is no stamp on the inside blade tray (unlike the 1946 model) but there is a stamp on the lower handle ring area (absent in the '46). Mine has the slightest fleabite on one of the silo doors and a  tiny dusting of pitting around the head area, but nothing serious. Age, you know. 74 years old. 

Anyone used one of these? It's not currently in my rotation, but I'll get there Smile

Lovely razor Heart I have the same  in my collection, it shaves well.  The Nickel Ranger Techs always seem to clean up shiny and bright.
The Gold version is the 1940 Milord

That is a very nice looking 41 Tech Ranger.  I'm using one in my rotation this week.   They are mild smooth shavers.

That's an outstanding example of the '41 Ranger Tech.

This is mine. I struck gold and got mine for $2 at a Flea Market. Case and Razor were very dirty but I "restored" it. Love the history of it[Image: 450585c851611916f752ffaac14ee327.jpg]
