Not only that, they do not have the same caliber of people on their production lines. Back in the day they had gunsmiths and trained apprentices assembling the guns, today they have Paco and Tyrone who aren't qualified to assemble yo-yo's.

I agree Ruger seems to have declined less than S&W. I do own a new Colt Cobra and while it is no Python, and from this single example, it does seem to me that Colt is doing a better job than S&W with their new revolvers when it comes to fit, finish and function.
