Scales

The 'New Ranger' models featured Nylon Evolution scales, contoured to fit the hand, and usually in black. The first, and most common, Evo scales featured deep checkering molded into the thumb area on both sides (main photo). One side carried the Wenger cross logo, along with 'WENGER' molded into the scales. The logo is a push button, which, when depressed, releases the liner lock on the knife blade.

The RangerGrip models feature rubber inlays within the contours, to help with retention under a wide range of conditions.

History

Wenger introduced a wide variety of 130mm New Ranger models in 2007.
Evolution contoured grip scales and a push-button lock release distinguish them from the previous 120mm Ranger series.
The Ranger 74 was not originally sold in North America.
