My AR-100 from that era, someone eles's former safe queen, cost me about twice that ad's price a couple years ago.

And, it was a bargain to me.:biggrin:

i wonder if anyone ever drilled the carbine for the scope mount. i don't see that being a very successful project.

I recall those ads. Drooled many times! Even then, they were out of reach as a rifle would have knocked hell out of a week's wages and I could never get ahead.
An old Vietnam era vet at work was interested too. The battle cry when he saw me was "Daewoo, kokadow yoo!" :tongue:

i'll a few cases of ammo at $110 as well.

according to the inflation calculator from 1985

$110 = $230 today
$339 = $705 today
$299 = $622 today

even if you bought back then, adjust for inflation you'd still almost double your money.

I had 2 of the AR110c, with one being new in box and wrap. Bought back in 87 and 88.
Had to have the new Dodge Stealth so sold both for pretty much what I had in them. Think right around 300 each plus a norinco ak to have a down payment for the Stealth.

Long story short. sold the guns, dealership renigged on the deal and was out the guns and no car.

moral of the story. don't sell your prized guns to get a car, but at that time I was a young Marine and a sports car was the bomb. BTW, did wind up with a custom miata and a year later did get me that Stealth. Loved that car.

But I do have another woo, the DR200 with a few of my touches.
