Blast from the recent past

Jay emailed me an old CDNN catalog from 2001. It is hard to believe the prices listed were the norm only 8 years ago. Click to expand images.

Good luck finding a used Mateba for under $1200

Saiga 12: $600+ today if you can find it in stock.

Thank to Jay for the history lesson.

I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!

    CDNN does have very good deals from time to time. Earlier last year I bought a Charles Dalyl BHP (new) with XS sights for around $289 IIRC. The XS sight alone cost over $100. Tactical Response guys swore by them. The XS sight system is made for combat and work as advertise but I have a hard time getting use to them.
