I can't really enjoy something if it's made in a country where labor laws and employee rights are something that is to be strongly desired.

I was just about to say that. Taiwan is not the same as China.
Taiwan has moved forward a lot in the recent years in that aspect.

I am aware of the Labor Standards Act in Taiwan.

Believe me, it looks good on paper. It makes western importers very comfortable outsourcing manufactured goods.

Many PB companies are building parts in Taiwan right now. I'm pretty sure Dye is among them, despite having a manufacturing facility stateside. Empire makes the Mini and Axe there. and of course there's all those Spurlock guns.

Yeah, the PMR is Taiwanese, the traccer is too. All the old WGP trilogys, the new Empire sniper, which is made from old trilogy bodies. Hey here's a $450.00 trilogy with a pump kit. Kee wins.

The whole American made debate tends to be moot anyways since your never really sure if it's truly American made in the first place.

The Empire Sniper is not made from Trilogy bodies. It's not even made by the same supplier or same country. The Trilogy was made in China. The Sniper is made in Taiwan.
