Guns & Ammo, the preeminent and most-respected magazine in the firearms industry, reviews a Republic Forge Patriot.
"Modern aged woolly mammoths are thought to have gone extinct more than 10,000 years ago in what is now modern Alaska and the Yukon. In certain parts of Siberia and Asia, it’s likely that mammoths lived on until 6,000 years ago, and scientist estimate that 10 million mammoths remain frozen. Since the days they walked the earth, woolly mammoths have been hunted, but in the 21st century, mammoth ivory is growing as a popular substitute for elephant ivory. Mammoth ivory differs in appearance from elephant ivory in that it is browner and the Schreger lines, or crosshatchings, are coarser, giving it a distinctive aged appearance."
