I thought that some of you would like to see some old gun ads, so I pulled out some old magazines.
Here are three from 1950 and 1960.
If ya'll like, I can get some more.

Guns Magazine 1959 Mosin 91/30
Image

American Rifleman 1960 Mosin M91 $14.95
Image

American Rifleman 1960 Mosin Finnish M29/30 $16.95 (It's really a M27rv)

Glad I got my, "Once-In-A-Lifetime collectors item" before they ran out. :wink:
That's an awfully tasty looking Finn they have there too.

I love seeing old ads. My goodness, I wonder if that whole piece of property was Interarmco's? The dock space alone is impressive.

:shock:

That finn 29/31 would be awesome to have, was 7.62x54r really that readily available in 1959? Seems like the communist would have been too busy using it to give it to us.

I think I just had a heart attack looking at those prices. But I am sure I would not be making anywhere near what I am now,so it still would have been a lot of money!
