I bought my son who was 6 years old at the time a BDL Remington in 1976 for 129.00 bucks because I could see they were going up around 15 bucks a year. Bought a 6 power wide view Weaver scope and mounts for 60.00. Good old days but it was harder to come up with the money back then. rifle

In 1969, a new Marlin 336 and 2 boxes of shells sold for about a $100. My 870 with a case of shells was just over a $100.

Back then $50 a day was a decent wage...So 3-4 days pay for a rifle. Comparatively speaking things are cheaper now.

I wouldn't say that, There's alot of people making $100 or so a day.

I remember back in 1999 I bought my first real deer rifle and scope at the age of 15(with mother in tow) with money from mowing yards all summer.....

Ruger M77 MKII Stainless .270win with laminated stock- $450.00(brand new in box) out the door at a local private shop.

Leupold Vari-XIII 3.5-10x40 - $450.00 out the door brand new in box from another local private shop.

I have since owned rifles that cost 4X more than I paid for my .270 & scope and none of them have shot any better.

Great classic Ruger rifles. I know that some of you are afraid of the American Rifles because that is the low end rifle being produced by Ruger today. I have been shooting one of them in .22-.250 caliber for two years and it is my favorite. I wanted a 6.5 Creedmoor in the American but they don't make it in a lefty.
Adios,
Gary
