    Are they Russian built? I thought they were made in Germany? Or am I confused?

    He has some really cool stuff, I have my eye on one. Some of the "prettier" ones are not terribly affordable, but certainly nice.


    But one of the Regulators is what I want, just kind of neat looking. The 60 on top is cool (in a Raketa Big Zero sorta way I guess).

    We have a shop here in MD, USA that carries them. I am a fan and they seem a good value at their price point- very high quality in the steel. I just don't know that I'd every wear that style....but I do like them very much.
