It just hit me that manufacturing has been very consistent for a very long time.

The scope bases I used on that Win model 70 are new purchased for a gun made in 1948...

And they work!

This is why I pursued a career in engineering/drafting rather than journalism or computers.

  1. If you have the time/chance, read "The American Rifle: A Biography" by Alexander Rose. It talks about the role of firearms in those advancements in manufacturing. It talks about a late 1800s world trade show where the American companies had interchangeable screws and the rest of the world couldn't believe it was possible. Interchangeable parts instead of hand fitted? Who would have thought.
