In a truly honest world this would be very true.

Now the slight of hand trick, an item made or manufactured in lets say China then exported to a holding Free Port country for example only Australia then exported again to lets say Germany then imported to the UK so as far as the goods are concerned the last country of origin as far as Britain is concerned it is Germany. So the now you see me now you don't SO as far as Germany is concerned it came from Australia and as for Britain it came from Germany and the made in China label is disappeared if it had one in the first place though usually not. The end game is that the Country of manufacture can slip quietly into the background. An example on this is on e-bay is Chinese import and export companies have offices in Germany and advertise as UK seller. This is only a simple version of how the whole thing works.

I got a similar slip from British Sporting Arms that was made by Croots in England, it's extremely well made and the materials feel excellent.

FROM TEALES UK WEB SITE - Forest canvas and brandy leather gun slip with synthetic wool lining.

I would assume that all their cases have this synthetic wool lining, there is no way they could hit these price points using real wool.

Best to you each Morning

If you look at the coots of England website( as one mentioned he got a case from) you can see a tremendous difference in price between on made in England and one made in India. I was not surprised at the get go. Looks like a good value though

Years ago Lewis Drake sold very nice leather cases that I believe were made in India. I have several and the quality is excellent. I watch for them on eBay but have not seen any for sale for a long time

[Linked Image from i.imgur.com]These are really popular among clay target shooters. They're made by Shamrock Leather in Minnesota. The bags are just under $300.00. The side pouches are around $50-$60.00 a piece. They hold eight boxes of shells in the main bag. The smaller carrier holds 4 boxes of 12 gauge shells.
