A brand new 870 for $100? Awesome!
Hat Tip: Today’s Inspiration
$100 for an 870? That’s inflation for ya! Good news is – it looks like the price has increased well below the inflation rate. According to westegg.com’s inflation calculator $100 in 1966 would be comparable to more than $650 as of 2008. I don’t know what the lowest MSRP for any 870 model is today, but I know it’s well below that!
The Remington Express models that look like that are about $300. If its a 870 Wingmaster though, they are $600+. I’m not sure how to tell the difference from the picture.
That’s a good point, and I don’t think they had an Express model back then; I don’t know if they even had a Wingmaster then either, there might have been completely different model designations. But, considering they say “from $99.95, whatever it is, that price is for the cheapest model. Also, the shotgun pictured might not necessarily be their lowest priced model since they aren’t advertising any particular model, just stating that they start at $100.
My point was just that prices for firearms may have faired a little better (inflation wise) than prices for some other goods.
