We all tell "back in the day" stories, here's mine.
Back in the 80's when the police traded revolvers for semi-autos, Kieslers Police Supply in Jeffersonville Indiana had Mod 66's for around $200 apiece.
I bought them and traded them off thinking they'll never run out.
I've always kept a Mod 66 or two, but never really cared if I sold one or not.
Then, awhile back I had a chance to buy a coupla' more.
I did and a GB "completed auction" price check and it amazed me.
Over 500 + for a short bbl Mod 66?
I didn't pay near that, but it makes me wonder what happend to all those police trade ins.
It would seem that all bargains do not last. In the 1960s most gun shops had 1917 .45 s and M&P victory models in both .38 S&W and .38 specials. at very reasonable prices. We can all see what has happened to these prices now. hvapa;p;
