I hope sincerely that it's not true :(

At my mind, the best quality of the RAW rifles will go out if yes !!

I've heard there are many cookies over the table that still need to be sorted out:
AirForce manufacturing parts and components and Martin in charge of assembling, quality control and final details, Martin producing current RAW line and AirForce manufacturing other lower level models and other possible scenarios.
With current technology and CNC machines, either AirForce or RAW will produce the same quality components, but wood to metal fit, wood finish and accurizing is something that needs Martin's touch.
The problems and dive for any company occur when they start cutting corners: Mass production lower quality components, etc. in an effort to more profits; profitability should be obtained though efficiency.
If Martin keeps on supervising and controlling RAW's outstanding QUALITY, RAW will be fine....I heard that his business picked up exponentially and Martin ended up putting 16 hours a day attending production, phone calls and Internet...Internet and phone calls absorbed 50% or more of his very precious production time.
