    Any country can produce she, but equally any country (within reason) can produce decent stuff as well. Air Arms have openly publicised what they are doing in terms of sub-contracting some manufacturing, and otherwise representing the Indian Company with their product line. As AA will be the UK supplier, our warranty and support would be with AA. I’m sure if you mentioned Whiscombe, Harper or Titan/Falcon, for example, the average Indian air gunner wouldn’t have heard of them. Nor would the average American one either. These guns are obviously not aiming at the traditional AA-built segment, but as some have said they may help AA generally in what are more cost-conscious times. AA have been in engineering long enough to determine what is quality (or sufficient quantity for the money). I’m prepared to see how it goes.

    The Titans were made over there and so were the Daystate Sportsmans.

    Maybe that's why the trigger units fail regularly

    I thought Titans were UK (Mr Bowkett) and Falcons had the ‘overseas influence’.

    They fail because owners take the gun to bits and dont assemble them correctly. They try to tighten the trigger box onto the gun without making sure the mechanism is released and therefore break the lugs off the box.

    Most of the components for the Titan Manitou were made in Karachi, Pakistan. The Titan Mohawk and parts of it used by Daystate in the Sportsman Mk2 were made in India.

    Just had a look at that news page.

    Its a little lacking in detail. Specifically, the detail that these are made in India and not by Air Arms
    Clever, if not a little shifty, marketing if you ask me.

    Not everyone will be aware of this partnership, and may well think they're purchasing an English made rifle.

    I think the Turkish manufacturers are turning out better looking rifles now
