Most modern mfgs made better guns in the past. However, short of the rifle not being able to feed the 38 wadcutter, I had no other issues in about 250 rounds. I found myself able to hit what I wanted to till about 100 yards, where standing, small targets and my skill level were the limiting factors.

My '65 870 Wingmaster is better made than one you can buy off the shelf today. But for most purposes, the new 870 would be good for all types of shooting. I feel the same way about my modern '94.

Anyone have a .458 SOCOM or similarly chambered AR?
Your views on any given subject are the sum of the media that you take in, scaled to the weight of the credibility of the source that provides it, seen through a lens of your own values, goals, and achievements.

Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity.

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.

I'm trying to put together a collection of martial guns from totalitarian countries.

I have a pistol and rifle from Nazi Germany
I have a pistol and rifle from the Soviet Union
I have a pistol and rifle from Communist China
I have a pistol and rifle from Fascist Spain

I don't have anything Italian. What should I look at?

What other countries should I go for?

Ideally in calibers I can reasonably shoot but that's hard for Italy.

I am on a few forums where people have them. Did you have some questions about it? I could pass them along and see what they say. It's a pretty good forum with minimal BS so the answers should be pretty objective.
