    Inflation Calculator

    I found this pretty cool Inflation Calculator to look up the price of old guns and such in todays dollars. Fun to play around with.

    https://www.officialdata.org/

    M1 Carbine
    1942 = $45
    2018 = $695

    M1 Garand
    1942 = $85
    2018 = $1,312

    Thompson submachine gun
    1942 = $225
    2018 = $3,473

    Me too!

    Interesting how the Carbine and Garand are at about current value.

    That can work out if you go further back .. Like a new lower end 1873 Winchester rifle which sold in the 25 dollar range in 1873 ..

    1873 25 dollars is worth about 520 bucks today

    And today you can get a new lower end carbine (ar 15) in the 500 dollar range.. (Now you can debate about which was better )
