Ran across this advert a little while back...mail order special deal for a 20mm semiautomatic anti-tank rifle with a ton of extra mags, spare parts, and accessories. Look at what they were selling the ammunition for too! $565 would get you the whole shebang with 500 rounds or ammo.

I saw one of these come up in a gun auction recently with a minimum bid of $14K and expected selling price of $20K. Don't know what it went for. Ammo comes up on Gunbroker from time to time...$120 to $200 per round.

I shoulda been borned 20 years earlier.... ;-)

I'm with GURPS on this one with a big 😍!

Gun porn (in its strictest sense) at its best. Had a StG 44 been in the ad (who cares why!) I would have been in heaven.

Similar vintage...not as bad assed as 20mm by any stretch. But these too have become scarcer and are climbing dramatically in value as well. The two companies that were doing the conversions have both ceased doing them some years back now. Thre is one on Grunbroker right now with a $4500 "buy it now" price tag. At least ammo is readily available, if not near as cheap as it was 8-10 years ago.
