That second statement is more or less my point. Though to be fair, $69 retail is going to be low quality no matter the origin, so apparently I did not think that one through.

It is true that American made does not equal quality and vice-versa. There's a reason that 50% of quality profession terminology is in Japanese. Now...

Cool concept, that FT-12. I'm the sort of sentimental nerd who enjoys the time spent working on the 98 clam shell (she was my first gun), but I appreciate the practicality. From a marketing perspective, if the FT-12 Rental takes/has taken off, I can see players wanting to buy there own version of the rental if they enjoyed playing with it.
