Did Lee Harvey Oswald's rifle really cost less than $20 dollars?
In reading Stephen King's novel called '11.22.63' (spoiler warning) about a man who travels back in time to try prevent the assassination if JFK. It's mentioned in the book that the Italian rifle Oswald used to kill Kennedy was actually ordered by him through the mail and costed under $20 dollars! I'm shocked!!! I'm not from the States and I know nothing about guns but less than $20 dollars really??? Maybe gun prices were cheap back in 1963, I really don't know but did Lee Harvey Oswald's gun really cost less than 20 dollars? Because I find that really hard to believe especially considering that it was a rifle!
