    Hi, this might have been discussed early in the forum, but here goes...

    I was wondering with such a demand from dealers/people ordering AR's. If manufacturers will keep with current quality control procedures in place or lower QC to meet the current demand presented by the possibly AWB.

    Your thoughts or opinions?

    The really good companies will probably keep up their quality because of their ISO ratings. i think its ISO9001 or something like that. If they let quality slip they could lose the ratings. I'm sure they are probably doubling up on shifts or close to it. But even at that alot of the machining is done by CNC or other automated means. I'd be comfortable knowing the quality is still there.

    The cheaper companies you see are often already selling seconds. I don't think you'll see QC slip, but you may see these companies end up with more parts as companies are trying to chrun out all they can more things may not pass QC.
