some old papers and coming up with a mailing from
Auto Ord in West Hurley.
Thought evenyone would get a kick out of the prices.
I place it very early 90's.
I distinctly remember thinking I would save some money up and get both!
Time ticked away, and here we are... If we could only go back!

from the same mailing. If I'm not mistaken, they sure look
like Semi SBR's, although I don't recall them ever offering
Perhaps a bit of actual "cut and paste" in the darkroom ( this pre-dates Photoshop),
or an actual hybrid for in house fun?

Thanks for the walk down memory lane!
When I first became interested in Thompson's (semis) it was owned by Ira Trast, they sold at a suggested list of a little over 400. Look at them today.
But then too look at the oldies, and where their prices went!
I paid 860 in 2003 for my Kahr, before smithing fees. Still below list though, my local dealer is fair when it comes to new guns. To bad he's not a class III dealer.
I do enjoy the gun though, very much. LOL, its more accurate than my .17 HMR!
I'm quite a pack rat as well, I found some large S&W shop posters from when I held an FFL.

Yep, Ira Trast.. I paid $355. for my Westy back then...
Man, what deals! I remember going up to Sarco and buying some stuff for the semi. He had all kinds
of drums. Asked if I wanted a 50 round or 40 round. At the time I did not no anything about them,
so I asked which was cheaper. The rest my freinds, is history, like that 62 Chevy Impala convertable I sold in 73
for $150.00, and so on!
