By getting totally disenchanted with the build quality of things these days was there ever a period when the quality of Rifles was at its peak ? Being new(ish) to the world of Centre Fire guns I keep getting drawn to the older type rifles where they seem to be more like - GUNS if that makes any sense ? I pick up an older Sako for example and it just feels different, wether it was better made is another thing, I don't know, were they ? I cut my teeth when I was young on Air Rifles, I picked up an newish Weihrauch the other day and compared it with one from the 1980's, Well there was no comparison, Was the 80's a good year for Rifles in general or is it better now than its ever been ?
I am genuinely interested.
