The video is from the 60's or 70's, but no less pertinent. I enjoyed this, hope you do too.

That's a nice film. The more people who enjoy it, the better. The wall off firearms @ 25:48 shows an XP-100 pistol, which according to Wikipedia, was introduced in 1963. The XP-100 pistol can be seen in the far right/lowest corner on the display.

The dating was obvious, those stocks are made of nice wood, no laminate, no plasitc, just solid wood goodness:)

The Hand Checkering and Engraving is Ridiculous. Also the background music is hilarious.

True. The quality of the woods were still good in this era.

Remington was a DuPont subsidiary at the time, so there were a few DuPont Nylon 6-6 polymer stocked firearms, like the tube fed .22lr Nylon 66, and magazine fed Nylon 77, as well as the XP 100 pistol.
