    Link to video of factory tour at RAW in Minor Hill TN
     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ThVmbsMEB4

      Mostly just visual but you do get to see the folks who build the best and the gear used to do so.
    Who else agrees that EVERY airgun costing $2,000 SHOULD have a pellet pushed through the barrel and inspected by the owner?  And then the owner of the company should assemble every rifle just like RAW. To me this DOES seem to be good QC, as it should be.

    That was an awesome video.  I have a new founded respect for RAW after seeing this video, and will probably own one in the near future.  I remember the provider of their stocks had a fire and burned down.  Guess they decided to do in in-house?

     As far as I know RAW has always made all their own stocks, Rutply ( THE supplier for the US at the time ) used to supply the laminate before they had a fire and Martin was right on finding a new supplier, now the Walnut they use all comes from Minor Hill, good local TN Black Walnut. I had a thumbhole HM1000 with the BEST looking wood, at a gun show it would have cost me $350+ for the blank, very nice. On the LRT walnut stock I asked Martin if he could pick out the least figured chunk for my rifle as I wanted minimum weight, and MY  LOP. I was very lucky to have had the pleasure of shooting with all the great people in TN , Martin, Sandra , Dottie, David et al.  while living in TN , darn nice finding people who take pride in there work and there lives . These days it just seems such thing aren’t as common as they used to be.

    Great video… I have a RAW HM 1000x .25 with LRT stock ordered that is being custom built for my special needs. It should be delivered the first of August👍👍 Thank you for letting me see the factory and meet the people who are making my dream air rifle. I’m even more excited now! I love that Martin and Sandra are so hands on in their business. With the attention to every detail, it is very easy to understand why their rifles are such high quality. Good job!

    Great video! I was looking to get a .22 PCP and now I know what I am getting, an RAW HM1000. I might even splurge for a thumbhole stock.

    Very informative. Raw seems to be a solid product, a lot of craftsmanship delivered here. By the way, the last section of the video was splendid! Really nice people indeed.

    It’s always nice to see were some of the best guns are made by some of the best people in the sport. Also, that range looks awful familiar.

    Could be that I shot at Roz’s hollow this past May of course ;)

    Their guns are too big and heavy for walking around or riding around shooting pests.  I would love to have a RAW rifle.  Just wish they would make something kind of like the Wildcat.  I would SO like to get free of European makers and their monopolistic distributor.

    Very well done video!  I am starting to pay more attention to RAW as a maker of real quality-crafted products reminding me of the German airguns handed down from generation to generation.  A bit pricey, but rarely needs any after-purchase tuning, I bet.

    A one week leak down test before leaving the factory.  I would expect that for a gun costing 2K.  Perhaps some of the other manufacturers should do that also.
