If I understand it corectly Nikon USA has stopped selling parts t third party repairers in the last few months.

This is a common misconception. Nikon USA still sells parts to independent repair shops -- but the independent repair shop must be an authorized Nikon service center. There are about 20 of those in the U.S., last time I checked, in addition to the two Nikon-owned and operated service centers in New York and California. There is a substantial investment necessary to become Nikon authorized, and most independent repair shops don't spend the money.

What Nikon USA stopped doing was selling parts to independent repair shops who are _also_, not Nikon authorized repair centers.

Your theory might still be partly valid, anyway -- I dunno -- but I think it's worth being precise about what Nikon did, or did not, do.
