Sneaky! The Russian Glock is not Russian

    I thought Mr. Kozhaev of Skat was manufacturing Glock in Russia. Two alert commenters noted that he is not manufacturing them so much as he is assembling them. The slides are imported from US manufacturers Lone Wolf Distributors and Advantage Arms. The frame look like they could be Glock factory frames with the Glock name dremeled off.

    Some not so subtle dremeling where it used to say “Made in Austria”

    Skat may be doing this to get around Russian import restrictions by importing parts and then assembling them inside the country, just like how many companies in the United States import Eastern European rifle parts’ kits.
