It's sad /k/ still doesn't have country flags. The only two conclusions I can draw from your post are that you are either retarded, too young to be on 4chan, or you aren't American. In the latter case, it's understandable, but you should really disclaim it so people don't get pissed at you for acting like a jackass when you could have simply done the polite thing and asked me to explain what I meant by "prewar," since you're clearly not getting it.
"Prewar" is an extremely common term used in America to denote the drop in the quality and in the availability of skilled craftsmen in the workforce - in all sectors of the market - after WWII, due in large part to the fact that so many of them died killing Nazis and Japs. Just in my experience, this is well known and well documented with Colt's manufacturing and Gibson's (maker of guitars, banjos and other instruments) manufacturing as well. I am certain there are other examples with other items produced by skilled craftsmen, and anecdotes exist with literally every other gun manufacturer, I can only give specific examples from those two companies because I have extensive experience with them. In the case of Colt, their production ceased entirely during WWII and production of many of their handgun models was simply not resumed after the war. As gun manufacturing became more and more mechanized, the few skilled craftsmen remaining became less and less relevant, many of the skills have simply died out.>>34355724
Go watch Hickok45's video on the Hi-Point because I think it's your best shot of seeing an objective experience of someone who knows about guns, rather than some poorfag trying to justify his purchase instead of writing a review. He had plenty of stoppages on camera. That said, the Hi-Point is mainly rated that low because they are ugly, they are not user serviceable, they are made of low quality materials, and generally not intended to survive shooting 10,000s of rounds.>>34356047
OK, you got me.
