I'm still confused by the reference to "inefficient". Mass production and hand built are chalk and cheese to compare. I've never been to the Ural factory but have lived and worked in Russia and also lived close to the Morgan factory which I used to visit often over the years. Again if the Ural factory and working conditions is anything like the Russian factories I'm used to seeing comparing it to MMC is like comparing chalk and cheese.
