Re: My first old gun.....Spanish Mauser Info Needed
Rjay - you've got me waltzin' down memory lane. Sears used to sell rifles and shotguns from the 'wish book' (catalog). They also carried used rifles for sale in the sales desks, if you knew to ask for them. My friend's dad bought a Russian 7.62X54R rifle for $10 that way in 1964. Woolworth's used to sell P13 and P17 Enfields ($75) and M1 Carbines ($125) and Garands ($250) as recently as 1985.
