I remember "back in the day" (circa 2001) when a plastic TM AEG would run about $650 in Canada. People were willing to pay that.

Now people scoff at paying more than $400 for anything.

And its not just Canada, players everywhere seem to be after bargain basement pricing, quality be damned. And unfortunately, manufacturers are there to fill demand and turn a profit. They could just as easily be making CNC'd 6061-T6 guns, but they would turn into unsold inventory, so they don't.
Seems true, however I might be totally in the wrong but I think the Pot Metal vs CNC'd aspect of it all is not advertised anywhere. What I mean is that you can't really tell on a manuf. or retailer site if it's one or the other, so people (I think) tend to overlook this "feature" when shopping and comparing.
