Are they going for that much now? Holy smokes........seems like only a few years ago you could get them for around $100....but since everything else has skyrocketed, (no pun intended) I suppose $400 is about right. Damn....wish I had kept mine now......I had a nice 1966 dated one that I gave to a young friend who was just starting out collecting......hope he still has it!
I wish I bought the ones I saw. 100 dollars each.
I got mine for $40 in Norway
i got one for sale, us army 66 MM, ANTI TANK M72....2-67
I remember a few years ago, a guy had boxes of these at Malvern for £50 each. Glad I got one as they seem to have sky rocketed
The problem with these in the UK is that you need a UK Deact Cert with it , last two years at the Betring show the police were taking them from sellers who didnt have a Deact Cert for them as they can be reloaded and reused so classed as a weapon so be warned
I have fired many of them... had a malfunction with one and it did not leave the tube, so the proper way to dispose of one is to reverse the tube under your arm so the front in points toward the target, I took 5 steps leaving the range and it went off exploding in the top of a palm tree...BILL
