I'm not saying they will. I'm just saying that there is a possibility.
Aegiis said it pretty well.

Yes, and most of these brands are quite good. Well, G&G is good, but CAS has had subpar guns made for them...
The problem with our distributors? They all have monopoly on each manufacturer they represent, and none has really set aggressive prices. Yes, I understand the basics of running a business, ie covering the expenses and having profit.
