I think it was $1199-$2000 + tax. Shipping seemed to be free. Then of course ffl fee if you didn't use your own c&r. I may not be 100% there but I'd bet solid. Last I checked for importer sales RTI was still selling. Other than that folks here sell from time to time. Gunbroker has some and other than that some local classifieds sites are known to have some posted. I have been searching the last few weeks. That's the best info I have found.

I didn't see any listing for Rockola. Did they have any ?

Yes but from what I seen they were the highest priced and first to go. To no surprise. May have been limited compared to others as well.

Anyone know what the prices were? Reason I ask, I just bought one from a private individual, Rockola receiver and barrel, and hope I didn't overpay.

The Rock-Ola's were selling $1,299.99 for fair to good and $2,299 for fine.
I didn't record what the other 2 grades were going for.

I estimated that good to very good would be $1,633.32 and very good to fine would be $1,966.65.

Thanks,

I did all right then. Appreciate the info.

From following the flow in the comments here, so many people tried to get a Rockola in the first few minutes that they were essentially gone immediately and a lot of people were left with an emptied out cart that they were close to sealing the deal on.

I don't think anyone has posted pics of one yet. There were Carbines with early bands, which is a plus.

Between the 1950's and 1960's we sent some 130,000 or more carbines to Italy. CMP got back 30,000 in 2006, and now midway got 3000. Somewhere there are another 100,000 floating around from just Italy alone that may or may not still be in italy. Not to mention who know how many other countries got them from us and still have them in storatge. And remember these things probably got traded around like Pokemon cards so who knows where they may have ened up. I just hope Ethiopia doesn't represent the high point of storage conditions (or maybe for my midway's value, I do(:> ).
