MELRD,There's a valid reason for the lesser cost of the Express model, compared to the Wingmaster and it isn't the parkerized finish or cheaper wood grade.The Express model has unfinished stamped parts that have burrs that CAN cause mechanical problems. The Wingmaster has had more time and money put into the finish and wood, but most importantly the internal parts have been finished.Finished means that the a person took the time to take off the burrs on the internal working parts and see to it that they fit and function better. That extra time required to perform these tasks cost money.You will hear Express owners say that they've never experienced and function problems. I'm glad for them, but the truth is that there are Express owners that DO have function problems. The difference is that you don't hear of Wingmaster owners having as many (if any) of the amount of function problems as do the Express owners.Your Express model may function flawlessly for the rest of your life and I hope it does. I wasn't as lucky with mine. After sending it back to the factory 2 times for action malfunctions, I lost confidance in the weapon and sold it to purchase a Benelli Nova. I've had no problems with my new purchase.Good hunting, Bowhunter57
