Default Howa / Weatherby Vanguard

These are built in Japan I believe. Anyone know exactly where? I'm curious if there might be a decrease in supply for a while due to all the problems in Japan right now.

Howa Machinery, LTD

Address: 1900-1, Sukaguchi, Kiyosu, Aichi, 452-8601 Japan / FAX: 81-52-409-3777

And yes, they have been affected.

EDIT: I should amend that. I have no "official" word that they will be delayed or anything, but Legacy Sports is the chief importer of Howa and they have said that they anticipate there being a lull in production.

With the devestation I can't imagine everyone just showed up on Monday and started dusting off the CNC gear.
