    So What

    A few questions on the SKB situation.Has SKB completely stopped production? Has the company closed its gun making doors for good?How long will parts stay in the pipe line? Will SKB sell the brand/trademarks or factory? Thanks for the info. BB

    SKB Japan has ceased roduction. Japanese government would no longer subsidize them. SKB USA (Rob) is till in business with parts and service available for the fifteen years. Rob is looking for another manufacturer in Italy and not Turkey. SKB USA is far from being deceased.

    I talked with Rob about two weeks ago. What Mike said was accurate- adding that with the devaluation of the dollar it is going to be very hard to find someone to build them, maintain the quality and keep them at an affordable price. Thank you Obama. Mike
