Been a member there for several years. Joined after I bought mine just about the time they moved. Haven't been there recently, but I was there before and after. My impression was that the quality before the move was nothing to brag about either.
Can't speak personally as to quality of guns after the move, but what I read as to quality of guns made before the move was not good.
