I wish that all the various vendors and importers of India-made historical replica guns, the Veteran Arms, the Military Heritage, the Loyalist Arms, the whole lot, could get together in an industry union, if you will, to join with the India-based manufacturers, and work to ramp up the quality of the India-trade guns overall. I'd like to know how many factories there are in India making these interesting guns, which do fill a need in the re-enacting hobby. Wouldn't is be fun to see u-tube videos of the factories and interviews with the craftsmen and entrepreneurs who run the businesses? These guns are often bad-mouthed without reason; let's give the Italians a run for their money! I believe each importer carefully guards his sources; maybe a bit of co-operative openness would benefit all. Thanks, all.
