It’s the short-sighted belief that the middle man eats up the profit. If I were them I’d look at Century as an inexpensive marketing, sales, and support services supplier. Now outsourced, as Richard indicated, all that will have to be paid for weekly by a company with limited market exposure and virtually no brand identity. Good luck.

They should look at CZ, which with great products and pedigree still isn’t, after decades, a household name like SIG has become. If CZ can’t do it, how will they?

I’d forgo pushing the name and leverage the Serb and Yugo connection. I still don’t think that’s enough in a saturated AK market. And Mauser buyers want either German or cheap surplus. Not going to sell many Zabastaba-whatever Mausers unless they cut a deal with Mitchell’s to pull some good old false advertising.
