What I have heard is that the Meteor cylinders are cast in the far east, and then finished and platred in Italy. I don't know for sure if it is true.

That's interesting. Did some research and there are quite a few piston and cylinder casting companies in the area surrounding the address where the Greek Dudes company is.  Wouldnt surprise me if that was the case.  Casting looks very nice

I'm curious if Gilardoni is still producing saw cylinders for husky/stihl?

You could well be right - as I said, I was not entierly convinced by the "story" I told.

Yes, Gilardoni (still) are.

I bet it varies by which model cylinder it is?
