Well to GW modernize means more money. And seeing the outragious price
increases in the States recently, you can bet that what they'll do.  One
day, maybe, GW will learn to support a system and not constantly rewrite
and reminuturize.  These guys don't have a clue.  Hard to beleive that
GZG and GW are in the same country.  They have totally different veiws
on how they handle support and customers.  I was a loyal GW fan many
years ago, but with there lack of support for there systems, I quit
wasting my money.  My hat off to GZG for there system that allows other
minature to be used, not to mention a very competeivaly price line of
products.  With this system, I see GW with another dead end system
doomed to be discontinued in 6 months to a year.
