I get it a little more if its being used as a solid cover instead of individual covers for eyes, pump arm, etc. But still, plastic body covers on a $600 gun...

Yeah, I'm sure there was a more elegant solution available for a $600 gun but elegant and low production cost generally don't go hand in hand. When the strings are being pulled by a big comglomerate the bottom line is all that matters.

AND - plastic is lighter that metal in a lot of cases. If they're going for the tourney stuff - people are always talking about light and small.

SO, I suppose plastic was a choice to keep it cheaper - but also lighter.
