    No stuff like a bb gun or a vise grip and hammer.

    I've paid $1 for old junk receivers & that is considered a firearm.

    Saw this today.

    1969 Romanian training rifle (.22lr)-$40

    I would get it, but it's missing the bolt and i have no idea where I could get one. I'd rather save up an extra $60 and get either a Nagant revolver, or a M95 Steyr Mannlicher Carbine. :D

    Bought a Mossberg 152 .22 auto for $10 from a pawn shop in Phenix City AL, 1982. Paid $10, out the door. Bluing gone, stock was a black as a pair of jump boots. Reblued, stripped stock and found BEAUTIFUL grained walnut. Still have it.

    In the 1896 Sears catalog (bear in mind the year and inflation) they had a 69 cent revolver, 22 short.

    I've only seen a Hi-Point .380ACP pistol for $70.

    Dad bought the High Standard(back when they were made in USA)that's listed in my sig for $35, said that's the cheapest he's seen. Wouldn't eject any shell, the guy needed money for gas so dad bought, took it to my grandpa, grandpa took it apart, filed the ejector a little and got it to start ejecting shells that must've been 30 years ago, still ejects .22L and .22LR to this day, haven't tried .22S cause I can't find any..

    I know someone who bought a colt ar15 for 90 dollars. The guy he bought it from found it in storage unit that he worked at. The person didn't pay their bill and never showed themselves and guns weren't allowed in the unit. The guy selling it didn't know what it was and sold it for 90 dollars.

    I bought an Astra .44 mag revolver for $60. I think I paid $20 for my first firearm, a Marlin model 60, in 1984. I have no idea what it was worth back then though.

    I was given a RG R-66 revolver that was broke. The parts to fix it cost about $10.00 plus shipping.
    Still have it.

    Man, some of you guys got great deals. I've had a few. I lucked out and got my Ruger Single-Six for $90 back in the early-90s. My uncle got me my Swedish Mauser for $75 at a gun show. It had a professionally repair crack on the buttstock so that brought it down from around $150 or so that they went for back in the early 90s. Both have been very cool guns to have in the collection!
