There is a parallel that can be used as an example today. How many of you shoot unmentionable rifles that are 75 or more years old? I certainly do. One of my regulars is well over 100. Started out being a budget driven decision or family heirloom - same as back in the day I'm sure.
My Krag is well over 100 and I bought it from a guy who hunted with it for 50 years. It shoots a bullet and kills deer like a new rifle, if it works it works. It still punches paper.
