Ruger doesn't make air rifles so I have no clue what you are referring to?

Thanks. I looked around and found posts on it from 2008. Apparently it's imported under license from Ruger and has been for some time.

Thats Umarex that crappy company that makes walther and those .22 "colt" 1911s. BTW, I just had my zink potmetal firing pin bust on my SP22 after just 3200 rnds. Stick to airguns.

Also, that Ruger air rifle is a chinese copy of Umarexes German made RWS 34, so if you polish it up and get a new mainspring and really tune it, you've got a great airgun.

The problem with china is when you haave alot of hand labor. I worked for 30 years in the christmas industry. When prelit trees became popular about 9 years ago it was going to cause the last remaining us artificial christmas tree manufacturer to close. Their congressman went to see what he could do to keep themin business. Their company controller said if the company paid no federal or state income tax and paid 1/9th the amount of property tax and could find people to work for 1 dollar an hour less than minimum wage they still would not be competetive. Now labor in china is up signifigantly from 9 years ago but the same basic principle is there. If you want to pay for the quality of an rws airgun the airgun is going to be expensive. I have an rws airgun and can light wooden matches at 15 feet with a pellet. i used to do that at 25 feet but that is ge.

when people stop justifying buying cheap chinese/indian/mexican/etc. goods and pay what it costs to buy goods made in America things may change. Until then we can keep whining about how American manufacturing jobs are going away. I drive a Ford truck built in Kentucky, a motorcycle built in Milwaukee and own guns built in New Hampshire and Arizona. Sometimes there is no choice left but when there is..... vote with your wallet and support the country we love.

Amazing what people DO NOT KNOW ABOUT AIRGUNS! First of all Umarex is not a manufacturer, they are a distributor.They carry airguns from a number of different manufacturers. There are many American Powder Burner Manufactures that put their name of CHEAP AIRGUNS-Ruger-Winchester-Remmington. These are the off the shelf cheap crap bought at big box stores. Gamo is yet another name for junk sold at the big box stores.These are not the quality airguns that a true airgunner owns. Airgun Hobby is a very very big sport. Most in the know, do not buy Chinese guns, however some have actually turned out some nice products in the past couple of years, and most guys will send them off to a" airgun tuner" to transform the gun into a nice shooter.

A German RWS is a wonderful engineered air gun. Until you actually shoot a nice well "tuned" airgun, then you really should not be commenting on something you know nothing about. There are many varieties of airguns out there, some used by the Military. Olympic airgun shooting is big. Hunting of all types of game is now done with Airguns. Want to become a serious "HANDGUNNER"? Get a quality air gun. I shoot hundreds of rounds of 9mm each week at the range. I TRAIN DAILY WITH AIRGUNS. Beware! Once you actually do learn about airguns, you can become HOOKED! The subject of great quality airguns is well beyond the scope of this forum. Want to really LEARN something? Go to a field match someday. You may be shocked to see what the sport is really about.

Maybe you could write a letter to Obama about that possibility.
I am sure he would be willing to listen.................

Pretty obvious that most folks do not realize How much America EXPORTS to other countries.

I would be surprised if Ruger does this. All my guns are made in the USA.

What's the big deal? I was just reading about Ruger owners and how great their Japanese trucks are, seems like Chinese BB guns should fit in just right at the unemployment line. LOL.

I realize this is opening a can of worms ...but there are very few products made in America that are not made BETTER (not cheaper) somewhere else. IMO Ruger is an exception in many areas ...but even Ruger products usually have to be qualified with 'for the price'. It doesn't matter if businesses come back to America if they still make crap. OTOH if all American companies were like Ruger we would have a great start.

I shop by quality ...not price.
