As you found out, finding a completely made in the US , new air rifle , is not easy. If you ever decide that you want a pumper , don't forget that with pumpers, you do not need to pump those 8 times for every shot. TOO MUCH WORK. 3 shots for plinking, 5 shots for most small game, maximum pumps for longer range or larger game. Good luck with your new rifle !!
bringing back manufacturing to the US
Quotebringing back manufacturing to the USHA HA HA... That's a good one!I have been in manufacturing for 25 years at 5 different plants. The typical American factory worker wants the most pay for the least amount of labor.Forget pride in their work. No concern for quality... that is Q.C.'s job. We did this to ourselves.

When I retired I was making $16 an hour. I was class A Set up and Operate on many machines. And, expected to train the fools they stuck me with.
I'd prefer Taiwan makes what it buys, and Americans make what we buy, better for both countries, and make no mistake, Taiwan is still China and what you put in their pocket ultimately benefits our enemy.
