Interesting. I can’t imsgine this won’t affect the quality of the RAW guns on some level.

Heh, if their ability to write even the most basic of words is any indication, the example below doesn't denote much faith with regards to the level of quality.

"...Rutterford approached AirForce Airguns with the idea of combing resources."

Then again I suppose this is the streamlined way of saying combining. It's all about efficiency, ain't it?

I don't know. I'm having trouble seeing a negative slant on this. Both brands have good reputations in many areas, and this announcement just seems to be a familiar, trending response to the need to adapt to global marketing in a niche product line. We are gaining the retention of the existence of a respected product line struggling to compete globally, while enjoying the benefits of enhancing the credibility of North American producers.

Not that we will necessarily see any immediate direct benefits in Canada, but there's always more hope when the North American influence wins out (and by that I mean in both the retail and manufacturing sectors).

I agree for the most part, it just seems that more often than not when a small custom business entity combines forces with a larger one their product loses the magic it had that made it special. Nothing against Airforce, love my condor, I’m just hoping the magic doesn’t get lost.
