This is hanging on the wall in one of my gun rooms. I have had it over 40 years, found it in a "Antique Store" in Morehead City, NC. I believe the coloring was done after it was printed. But still a Colt ad for the Post-WWI era.

Had to look up the 357 "Atomic" which turned out to be a hot loaded 357 magnum or a +P 357 mag. Around 16 gr of 2400 behind a 158 slug/

Since anyone can add in, here are a couple I just found in some old magazines. The first 3 advertisements are from 1967-1969 USA Magazines whilst the last 2 are from a UK Magazine 1986.

I traded a complete floor shift transmission linkage for a 51 Chevy for a used one of these in 22 LR. I thought I had made the deal of the century. I was wrong. What a mistake, pot metal with steel barrel and cylinder liners. It did not make it through the first brick of 22 shells.
I took it to a local gunsmith for repair and he gave me 10 or 15 dollars trade in on a New Ruger Convertible Single Six. I had a balance of less than $40.00 when I left the gun shop and I paid him off in about 2 months. I still have that Ruger and it looks as good today as it did when I got it.

I had a 6944 but stupidly let it go for a stupid high price.

Your post made me feel like I'm one of the "Old Fellers" here.

It also made me smile!

Fantastic idea and thread, Iíll make sure to check it regularly

Iíll contribute with one of my favourite pistol. Someone mentioned that advertising the P7 as the most expensive pistol was not a good idea. Seems true as Glockís success is largely based on the cheap cost of manufacture (and hence price).

I find it curious that HK says their excellent P7 barrel is built to last in excess of ď10,000 rounds.Ē

10k for a pistol barrel? Iíd be way beyond furious if I had a barrel related failure at/near/around 10-20,000 rounds.

Or maybe Iíll say it this way...
If I were a gun manufacturer and my goal for life span of my pistol barrel was 10,000 rounds, I would go to GREAT lengths to never say that out loud where anyone would ever hear it or read it. I would certainly never say that in a print ad showcasing my product.

Am I off base?

A free holster with the gun and make sure to keep your finger off that trigger.

It's funny how this thread has taken on two different lives, one here, and the other over on THR. The "Marmite" detour (that I participated in along with others) was determined to be outside the scope, and deleted, but the pictures there seem to be of a bit of a different nature than what is seen here.

And just to keep with the theme, here is a picture that I posted over there as well, commemorating my .30-06 Model 721 from 1950 that is still on duty:

Here's one of my favorites. It's from The New Yorker, I think. July 1928:
