    1933 Colt Officer's Model Target list price question

    I saw a 1926 Colt price list showing that Colt Officer Model Targets were $49 in 1926. Anyone know what the price list would show for 1933? That is the year of the 22 cal OMT (85xx) that I just picked up in 95% condition for $700. Just curious, as an inflation calculator I found on line shows $49 in 1926 being $36 or so in 1933, due to deflation and the stock market crash of 1929. Today that is $600.
    Would Colt have actually lowered their prices from 1926 to 1933? It is weird to see money going down in value. Have gotten use to that in real estate, but not money.

    I have a January 1931 retail price list. The OMT in both 38 and 22 caliber is listed at $40.75 (the same as the Camp Perry). The most expensive was the NS Target at $50.00 and the least the Pocket Model Hammerless in .25 caliber at $17.00. From what I believe to be a few dealer prices penciled on it, there appears to have been about a 25 to 30% markup. HTH

    Thanks for the info. Here is the price list I found on an ad for a Colt revolver.
