Those were the days. I have an ad for "Buy a train car full of automatic AK-47's and get a free spitfire fighter plane." somewhere.

Adjusting for Inflation that Solothurn S/18-1000 20mm rifle would be about $1,600 today.

So, in other words it was cheap back then, too.

That would be a fun good to have. It weighed a reasonable 118lbs without magazine.

Steinbergs was a large sports store In Baton Rouge. I used to go in there with my dad all the time. I remember seeing wood barrels full of AK-47's for 30 dollars ea. Still no one bought them!
Hard to believe that a Marlin 30-30 was as much as a M1.

1475 for the Python, don't know about the Anaconda. I didn't really ask about them just stared lovingly at them through the display case and noticed the price tag.

Depending on barrel length and condition that is a good price.
