All the ones that I have seen look like they could have been made in a high school shop class, back then high school shop classes were pretty well outfitted for metal work, I donít know what they are like now. The silicone would kind of turn me off. There really is nothing special about them other then the Terminator and the IRA cool factor. They are interesting from a design standpoint. I do not think that I would be interested in buying another one at todayís prices, to me just not worth it.
Well busting out my inflation calculator, $300 in 1980 is the equivalent of $951 today so based on what the OP said he could get the gun for it would be the exact value you paid for yours back then.
