Video - Making guns in 1969. Remington: One at a Time.

The Remington Company made this film in 1969, showing day to day gunmaking activities of the time.

Pretty neat look at how it was done then, and a large amount of computerization, even in 1969.



P.S. Fair warning, the gal in the Thumbnail is not in the video!

Really enjoyed that, David. I haven't seen that much blue steel and wood in a long time. Just made me really nostalgic for the "old" days.

You're right, the amount of computerization was interesting (although I'd bet that my phone has more computer power than that whole factory had...), I really enjoyed watching the whole process, just how many human eyes and hands contributed manufacturing process back then. Bet the ratio between computer controlled and human hands on is much different in today's world.
