My Dad's friend bought a Krag Carbine through the NRA in the 30's for $3.00, but my Dad decided to buy 2 rifles and cut one down at $1.50 each.  I still have both, and the rifle was made in 1903 and has a 1903 dated bayonet with it.

It was a mis-print. They just put the decimal point in the wrong place ;)

Wasn't all THAT long ago you buy just about any Krag out there for under $300.  We probably should have snapped up a lot more of them then.

I bought a Nagant pistol under a hundred about 7 years ago now bringing well over $300
 and I also have Mosin that was $99, but I did not buy it, it was given to me. :)
Don't even get me started on C96 Mausers... :o

Surplus Carcano M91 Cavalry Carbine's are $219.00 now...

Picked up my Moisin back in 1999 for $125 - made by Westinghouse in 1916.
