The notion that the Made in China brand is changing for the better is evidenced by the fact that SPA exports its goods all over the world and reaps success wherever it goes. Their airguns are of high quality and the price is unbeatable, no one can do it cheaper than the Chinese.
Shaoxing Snowpeak Air Gun Factory was founded in 1976. It is located in the Yangtze River Delta, about 2 hours from the port of Shanghai. Since the beginning, it has been dedicated to air guns. Recently, the company has been stepping it up and coming up with a number of innovations, which is one of the reasons why its CO2 and PCP pistols are so popular. They also own several patents.
All in all, SPA makes nice airguns that are ideal for recreational shooters. With a small supply of CO2 cartridges and pellets, you can have a ton of fun for little money.
