Default Old Advertisment from Guns Magazine

I had to share this old ad I found, Wish they we these prices now!

Here is a link to the picture Old Advertising

Don't remember seeing prices like this 303 $13.95, 7MM Mausers $14.95 . 30 Cal Mausers $29.95 and a lot more . Take a stroll down memory lane.

Try not to fall off the chair laughing

That is cool. I found some old American Rifleman mags a while back, I need to get them out and post some of the old pics and articles. They were from the early to middle 60's.

You can still read these online from the publisher.

I remember the Rolling Block Remingtons in .43 Spanish for around 15 bucks, several of my father's buddies got them, got a .44 mag barrel from Douglas, a set of stocks from Bishop's, and had a cracker jack little woods rifle.

In 1964 there were ads in magazine for Winchester's new rifles the much despised new models that replaced all the pre 64s.
Every rifle they produced was displayed in a semi circle on two pages.
Total price for all of them was something over 3,000.00. there' were a lot of guns and you could order them, through the mail.
