there is no way to know the facts/material may have been updated in a newer thread.
Except that it IS an old thread, which is kind of incumbent on the reader to recognize.

If Google sent you to an article in the November 1967 American Rifleman (or any other periodical) would you expect all the information to be both valid and current?

There is a lot of good, sound, factual information about firearms that doesn't change. And some that does, such as pricing, in particular.

For example, information about a 1975 mfg S&W M29 is as correct today as it was the day the gun left the factory, except its no longer an MSRP of $283.50.

No, there is no automatic way to tell you if the information in an old thread is out of date. For that, you have to do further research.
