    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 :eek:. 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.

    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.

    while I like the cheap firearms prices, I'd much rather trade for my parent's mortgage payment from 1958.....................

    In '65 I made a whopping $1.25 an hour along with my dad in the fields. I think he made a nickle more because he also maintained the tools ( Sharpend and set the clippers, sharpened the hoes etc.)working in the rose fields of Arizona.
