    If you take $189.50 in 1966 $$$ and multiply it by 5.8141, the sum is $1101.77 in 2010 $$$... The price of a Colt AR really has not changed much in the last 40 + years...

    Love the IDF and USAF guns. They've been kicking around so long and parts keep getting upgraded that there's no telling what kind of configuration you'll run into.

    It ran great, too... 1500 rounds in an 8 hour period with minimal cleaning, just more lube.

    I sold it because of my divorce... women.

    I believe they were around $450 in 1984. But ammo in real terms now, even after the Obama runup, is cheaper.....as are good mags.

    I'd love to have a 20" A1 upper with a 1/7 or 1/8 twist .750" or .625" profile. Those original handguards were quite comfortable.

    .223 ammo was around $300/m in 1984. In 1984 IIRC a AK (Maadi) was $1300 or so, and a Galil was $1700. Cheapest ammo was $100/m for AK around 1984-1990, and .223 was $170/m around 1997 until 2001.
