    I was once told that one of the American surplus gun dealers imported a batch into the USA and sold them on the civilian market (along with the rifles).

    As such they are still fairly common on the US collectors market.

    They are readily available in the US. I bought a batch for $15 each a few years ago. They are multiple ones for sale at $40-$50 each, but they never seem to sell for that much.

    I was looking for something to establish a time frame for the advertisement. California sales tax at 3%......means it was a LONG time ago.....

    I've got a similar ad from a Chicago based company that is marked as 1961 - think it was Service Armament? Selling Bofors 37mm AT guns for $350.

    There are still caches of 37mm Bofors rounds out there that look factory fresh.
