Fantastic video.  Almost an analog factory.

I wonder if they still hold themselves to that same standard of quality.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     The way he had those tires set up made me think of a giant suppressor.

It used to be a very pridefull thing to show how your guns were made.  Today they don't want you to know.  After Winchester moved to Hong Kong, that was the death nail in my opinion.  SW, Savage, and some of Remmy, I think is all that's left. Except for a few micro-armories, like Henry, etc.

I doubt there are a handfull of craftsmen left that could make guns like in that video.  Even as cheap and cost cutting then (circa. 1970)... I don't think today's mass produced offerings are as good.

I enjoyed the heck out of that. Thanks for posting it.

I found myself thinking during that video that it reminded me of films I remembered seeing from school days. The same video style, clothing etc..

Then I realized it was the same time frame! I have gotten older!
