How about if someone were to machine high quality hardened gearboxes? Again, I would be willing to spend a few extra bucks for a QUALITY product produced in Canada. I' sure someone could give Systema a run for their money on replacement AEG internals if they tried.
Carl perhaps? (MadMax). Don't think he has a CNC machine though.
