This is an excellent tool that has been around for a while--THE WAYBACK MACHINE. Put in any URL and it takes you back many years of the site's history. I figured I'd put in some AK sites and it's pretty humorous. Like what Tapco's site was like in 1996. Probably a trip down memory lane for most people. Here are some fun finds for me:

$59.99 AMD-65

Romanian sidefolder

We have just received "Inside Information" -- BANNED!! Notice Effective 8/17/2000 6:00pm. We have just received "Inside Information". BATF has now banned the importation of "Assault Weapon" Receivers and Barrels. -- Look at the rifles page--BANNED!! G-3 CETME .308cal

Centerfire's archive


This site will keep you busy for hours. Report back good findings.

The barrel ban?

It was made law then, ATF just decided to let us import barrels under the "repair/replacement" loop hole, now they have decided not to allow the loop hole any more.

It really sucks that some of us were too young to buy into full-auto before it got ridiculously expensive

Anyone wanna sell me a RR M-16 for ~3500

Tell me again why prices on autos have tripled in the past 4 years....

I was lucky and got 2 SAR-2's from them for $269.00 a while back. I actually ordered only one and due to a clerical error on their part, I was sent two. And just think, I almost sent the extra one back.

Pretty cool.

I used to have a Centerfire catalog from I think Jan '95 or '94, and it remember the 75rd chinese drums were $40 and the 100 rounders were $50 or $55. I wish I knew were it was because it would make for some nice pics in this topic.

I also picked up a pair of SAR2s before the prices shot up. I think I got them for $249 each. I didn't know the value would shoot up so much. I thought they'd be replaced with something more elaborate and expensive after the ban expired. Kit building wasn't common back then and the ATF hadn't reneged on their import policy yet. I keep one bone stock and the other one is slowly being transformed into an 'evil feature' showboat.
