i know its not an AR, but i figured with the plethora of knowledge here i could get an answer. I have a hunting knife my grandfather gave me before he passed away. he found it in the woods somewhere. its pitted but its good steel and has a stag handle. on the hilt is the name: ANTONN VINGEN JR. SOLINGEN GERMANY anybody ever heard of it? how old is it? any ideas?

Don't know how old it is but Solingen is famous for high-quality knives, I think

There is a magazines called knives (If I'm wrong out them please tell him what the name of it is)There are a lot of people in there that you can write or send a photo to and they will tell you about the knife like about how much it's worth and all of that. I wrote them once because I bought a Ka-bar for $30 and a week later all the black enamel came off it found out it was just black white out and a good painting job well I found all these making on it wrote a letter to this magazines and found out that the Jack-ass that ripped me off had done me a favor for this was one of the earliest made Ka-bars of WW2. Just write them they tell you if its worth something or not.
