Is Chinese gear...

poor quality because they are using a lot of 'scrap' for raw materials?... China makes most of the Kalashnikovs in the World. It would be interesting to hear from any users of this weapon what  they are like for reliability.

spunky knickers

afaik dafra builds/assembles them for mv in brazil and are in talks with triumph for the same deal

as Brazil it better logisticly to feed the usa- canada market

it is not a cost cutting excersise  pure and simple lodgistics

you didnt rattle me cage .. i thought it was comon knowlage that MV had a 2 yr deal   to assemble MV,s and make  some engine parts and spare parts for the yank market

and after just getting off the phone i have been informed that ..  this yr some time in june ,MV will sign a deal for 5 yrs

to produce  all the F4  4 cylinder engines and some major carbon parts

and triumph are looking at the same sort of deal for the rocket and all the twin engines


b4 you start just think back a while when you stated that triumph was 100% brit nothing made outside hinkley funny now you finaly agree






oldish china was also buying up 95% of all iron ore.... i did not know that they were buying up all the scrap as well

but keep an eye on india they are ramping up big time

they are not just buying the ore they are buying the complete mines

Scrap metal

A friend of mine works for shaws metals and the vast majority of scrap metal he picks up is being shipped over to china so they are indeed commandeering most of the srap aswell.
