Hi Buddy,

Cool advertisement!  Thanks for sharing!!!

I'm intrigued - Any idea how the Solothurn went from being openly sold & unregulated (not a DD) to being considered a DD under the NFA?

Did nobody really care about NFA items back then?  Was the '68 amnesty the turning point or was it sometime later?

Address correction....they moved to Hollywood!   Still NIB (OK on top of box), but more than 189.50,  A local guy ordered one and never shot it.  They used to offer a nice selection of ammo and additional stuff is in the chest (more than what is described in the ad).   Yes, 1968 was DD registration because these are such a threat to public safety.  You could beat someone with the spare recoil spring, but the entrenching tool is quite sharp!

Yes this was shipped direct from Cadmus to the previous owner who's name is on the address tag.  They are quite stunning in person. Buddy's walk down memory lane!

I would bet it's a illuminator for the optic.

Yes,  a battery box and light cable for the illuminated reticle.  Very similar to the MG34 setup, but a single battery vs. 3.  A pretty rare accy. today.  The entire receiver is one piece including the tube that holds the scope internals is part of the receiver, not bolted or mounted on the receiver.  Machine time even today on a 5 axis machine would be huge.
