Glad you like your new gun!

As to the poster of this:
Quote:
I know labor costs are low in most of Asia (which Turkey is part of I believe). So yeah. They can build and assemble firearms of equal build at lower costs... but not that low. You get less known materials, their machinery is not near as nice as what “first world” countries use in manufacturing, etc... and customer support is usually shoddy and annoying at best to deal with...

Not to mention. There isn’t much pride in work there. Low labor costs add up to poor living conditions. Those people aren’t exactly going to be happy to go to work for dirt poor wages and such.


Do not confuse Turkey with Cambodia. The Turks can, and do, make some excellent guns. Their labor costs are less than the US or Western Europe, but they are not slave wages as in the Far East.

Just like any other maker, the quality is built to the desired price point of the dealer/seller.
The S&W Elite Gold (now the Cabelas Dickinson) and the Kimber 7 pin sidelock, all made in Turkey, are excellent guns. True bone and charcoal case color hardening, true trigger plate action, engine-turned internal, etc.

Can you post some pics of the FAIR? I was looking at one on buds but wanted to see more than the stock photos.

Sounds like a FAIR deal all around.
