They already have in my humble collections of each. I will no longer buy a SIG, unless it is an extreme bargain, as I think they are way over priced for what you get. CZs, on the other hand, are still a relative bargain. Not as much as in the past but I think you get more for your money purchasing a CZ vs a SIG. I have also read that SIG quality control has gone down some of late. I hope the CZ USA plant happens.

A friend of mine owns an AR style .22 rifle that Sig produced for a few years, and was sold with a LIFETIME warranty.  The early production rifles had a parts failure problem that had been fixed
in later production guns.  When his broke, he sent it back to Sig for repair and an upgrade to the improved part. He was informed that the rifle was out of production and that parts were no longer available, even though the rifle was only a few years old.  He simply refused to take no for an answer and kept shipping the rifle back while pointing out that they had sold it with the lifetime warranty.
In the end, after several attempts, they repaired the rifle with the improved parts and returned it.

If that's how Sig treats their customers, CZ should be able to gain some traction at their expense.

CZ looking to displace SIG.

Won't be hard. I've found that there are several companies of German/ Swiss background that try to cash-in on the "superior German engineering" folklore, but it simply doesn't. Yes, it's good, but certainly no better than others. Not to the extent they can demand a 50% premium over other brands. A certain 3-letter car company comes to mind.

In the end, what it boils down to is simply a thin veneer of something with no more utility than "snob appeal". This is a feature that the latest generation of buyers can't afford, and to which social status simply has no appeal.

Now back to our regularly scheduled thread.....

That would be interesting. I wonder why they aren't looking near the distribution center in KS?

Had some fun with Bavarian Motor Works, didja?  8) 8)

CZ rocks and the world is learning faster and faster that this little Czech company really knows how to put out a high quality product.
