The first Expresses came along in 1987. Just previously they had introduced the Sportsman Models and they were for all intents Wingmasters with hardwood stocks. The first Expresses had a good uniform matte bluing job. The level of finish went slowly down until I would estimate the 2003 to 2005 time frame, and now seems to be coming back up a little at a time. It appears Remington is not stamping 'Express' on some of the newer guns, and that they are finishing them a bit smoother as well. It must be magic because as far as I know they are still owned by what some seem to see as that evil entity Cerebus Capital.
