This may change in the future from the protection formula change, but for now, not really needed.
Edit: Oh, and I didn't even mention all of the enchants that give crit, along with max damage. See my point?

welp, now that i got r1 engineering, this gun is pretty damn embarrassing.
Also engi is a LOT easier than old smithing because making the materials doesn't involve RNG luck in the form of leather drops/getting fine silk and fabric.
Not to mention there was a lot more gold in the economy back then.
Buying a Dustin from crush or whoever for 2m was a defensible decision back then, buying a gun for 4-6m now is sheer stupidity and impatience.
