Certainly mid to late 90s, as I had a similar-looking Record '98 version with Ti freehub body. Not a Record one though as it doesn't have the "spring clip" lubing port and the freehub body looks steel to me; must be from lower down the Campag "family". 400 grams sounds fairly heavy - Veloce or Mirage perhaps?

Yes heavy is one way do desribe it. 439g in fact. It looks unused as well.

I assumed the details you have given but nice to know my assumptions may not be completely off.

the freehub splines look like the pre-exadrive 8 speed spline pattern, but an end-on pic would make it easier to tell. have a close look at the writing that goes around the centre - they often put the model name there, and it's not always obvious if you don't look closely!

Looks like 8 speed Athena:

but hard to tell exactly which model as they seemed to filter components down the range from year to year. I think Chorus always had a grease port, but not 100% sure.
