How about this?  You could get two PIATs for $15 from Century Arms in March 1962...

well compared to 1962's wages , $9.95 for one VS what they go for now is a steal . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IS there any account of these ever being effective?    Mostly everything I've seen places these in the double edged sword category.  giant 200lb spring nerf gun.

Wow! They must of had them (the launchers) stacked to the ceiling!  What a day and time.  Interesting piece of gear / ordnance.  Only effective very close in as far as any decent percentage of accuracy, and best results with the attempt of quick follow up or multiple shots on armor.
