Illegitimus Non Carborundum.
I was just watching a video over at C&Rsenal on the Colt 1911 and they showed this interesting graphic. on prices from October 1916
Fifteen dollars per pistol, with mags at fifty cents. I'll take a dozen, please, with a hundred spare mags.
That would have set you back three twenty dollar gold pieces and a half eagle. Todays value -$6592. Money then is not the same as money now.If only you could have kept those double eagles away from the government.
Sigh... if only...
That's the bulk order price.Commercially they were $21 and $0.75 for mags.
