Need Assistance on Old Price List Please

Fellows,

Does someone have a Winchester price list for the Model 75-T circa (or close to ) 1947?

Thanks in advance for the information. ultramag44

Not a Winchester price list but perhaps a page from the 1948 Stoeger catalog will help?

Thanks PWNolan! You 'da man!

Oh, I also need a price list for the Lyman Super Target Spot circa (or close to ) 1947 also, thanks.

Earliest I have on Lyman Scopes is this ad that's supposed to be from 1950.

Sorry, I just realized there's no price. I did find catalog pages from 1938 & 1939 with pricing if that helps

Thanks guys! Y'all are the best!

I actually remembered EBay has lots of old ads for sale. I found one from 1952 showing a list price of $98.00 + change for the Lyman STS.

The reason I wanted these old prices is for a work of fiction I'm writing. Actually, it's written. I'm doing the first hard edit. it's now up to 82,337 words.

I have a folder on my pc full of old ads that I've saved from Ebay. They're great reference material and cool to look at.

Sounds interesting. Any story with a vintage Winchester target rifle sounds like a good read

I have a Lyman Jr. Targetspot # 3171, N.I.B. shipped 11-03-1948. Parsons has shipping info on all serial numbered Lyman scopes. Just thought I would throw this in. Big Larry

What's amazing is the STS cost twice as much as the 75-T.

The price for the STS was the same for all powers, because the quality was the same. Lyman would, on used units, boost or reduce the power of a scope and change reticles to. They also rebuilt/refinished scopes.

I find it interesting Winchester charged $4.00 + change more for a rifle w/ a Lyman 77 front sight instead of the Winchester 105-A. The insert change on the Lyman is of course, much easier.

I'm toying W/ the idea of seeing if I can cut slots in the 105-A's frame to accept Lyman 17 inserts. There are a lot of measurements to take first.

Just sell or trade off the 105A and get a Lyman 77, as you know the Lyman is a better sight anyway.

OM58,

I did get a nice 77 from eBay for my 75-T

I have just have been toying w/ the idea of seeing if the 105-A could be adapted for 17 / 77 inserts

As you know, 105-A inserts are made of unobtaniam. There was a 75-T sold on GB a couple ago w/ the complete 105-A insert set.

Yeah I saw that one, mine also had a full set of inserts with it when I traded it off. I figure it's in better hands and I got what I wanted so no harm no foul. At one point I had thought about finding a 10X Junior Targetspot for my 75 but I think I'll just stick with the 15X Super Targetspot for now.

Up to a year or so ago, the M105-A was basically unknown. No one knew they were a Winchester product. Very hard to find as well. I have two, one on a M75 and also a spare if anyone needs one.
Another consideration is the bases and the M77's come in different heights. Get the wrong combo and your rifle will shoot super high or super low.
Yes, you are quite right about the inserts. I have never seen any for sale. Big Larry

Gentlemen, Sorry if I am asking this in the wrong place but was the model 69 listed in the 1935 price list? If so, what were the retail prices?

Also looking for the 1953 and 1959 model 69 prices if anyone has that info.

Thanks!
