It’s not too late. Shotguns of the ’80s are still on used-gun racks. They’ve aged better than, say, Alf, and way better than Bill Cosby. Compare any one of them with a similar product of 21st-century cost cutting and you’ll immediately see a difference in build quality and fit and finish. In the ’80s, they still made them like they used to. Also, ’80s gun buyers, tired of the glossy wood and white-line-spacer look of the ’60s and ’70s, demanded classic styling. Ironically, the same era that gave us shoulder pads, big hair, and neon clothes also gave us more guns with straight grips, plain pads, and satin finishes.
