David Codrea posted a link to a back-issue of GUNS magazine, January 1961. I found this anti-tank gun ad in it.

$700 is about $5000 in today's dollars according to inflationdata.com. The ammo would be roughly $17 a round.



My, how times have changed! And FOB in NJ, no less!

ACK! Dyslexic moment there. Make that about $2200 in today's dollars.

Wonder what happened to any of them.

There used to be a place in Augusta that sold WWII surplus Stewart and Grant tanks. They had an ad in Trade-A-Plane up to the late 1980s.
