    I just heard from a reputible source that the Chinese government shut down the Classic Army factory and seized and destroyed the production molds and inventory.

    According to my source, Classic Army is looking at moving the manufacturing to Hong Kong, outside the reach of the PRC, but who knows how long that will take.

    I have no confirmation of this information, but my source is very close to those within the industry, and I know they would not release information haphazardly.

    If you're in the market for a Classic Army, might want to get it while the getting's good.

    Just so you know...

    I'm sure China regularly checks the various social sites and forums on the web determine the best methods of governing their people and creating their laws so as not to offend the rest of the world..... :rolleyes:

    Not sure I get why. Why would China kill a profitable export business...? Perhaps it was politically motivated.

    Look, guys, they're just trying to look out for the people. If people had guns or made guns, then they'd somehow think that the government might not be good or something, then they'd march on a certain city to a certain square, the the government would have no choice but to shoot, explode, run over etc. It's for the good of the people here. The people in charge.

    china has its laws and regulations on things that might be stupid to us but its just how they run it. classic army might have a profitable buisness, but if its not following the rules, china should shut them down. its like marijauna in the usa, illegal here, not illegal in amsterdam, even though it could be a profitable business, its against the law.
