I was under the impression that PCC acquired the part of Texas formerly occupied by Aztlan.  Which would mean that there's basically a PCC buffer zone between CAS and Aztlan.  However, refers to the CAS "western border with Azatlan".  Did I miss something about the PCC turning over that land to CAS?

Also, there's a reference of Ares trying to displace Aztechnology as a weapons supplier to the CAS military, and things "being frosty between the Azzies and the CAS"?  Since when did this happen?  I find it hard to see the CAS relying on Aztechnology as a vendor.
My fave quote from SRR: "Damn you Mike Pondsmith"

Same. Iím pretty sure thatís a mistake from the authorís side. Aztechnology could just snap their fingers and CAS weapons would fall apart or at least keep sending faulty equipment

There  is no buffer zone. Yes, the PCC was given a chunk of what used to be Texas by Aztlan, but there is still a western (southwestern, really) border of the CAS that butts up against Aztlan. It happened in Dirty Tricks, "On August 7th, Aztlan president Enrico Silva sold a chunk of Aztlan territory that was once a part of New Mexico and Texas to
the Pueblo Corporate Council (or, more specifcally, to a consortium of Ute investors). It runs from the PCC down to El Paso, follows the Rio Grande, then heads straight north as it gobbles up Kermit. Aztlan keeps Odessa. " So basically, if you draw a line straight down New Mexico's eastern border down to the Rio Grande, that is now PCC. But Aztlan still hits the CAS. Things have been frosty between the CAS and Aztlan for a while, if "frosty" means things aren't good.

Regarding buying weapons from the Azzies... tensions have been high, but business is business. If they can get weapons at the right price, they will make deals with anyone. And it is mostly just Texas that has a big problem with the Azzies. They mostly stirred stuff up with Texas while they were a solo nation. Of course, Texas rejoined the CAS, but the damage had been done. Azzies are making an issue out of things by giving that land to the PCC, which was seen as a slight and is now causing the CAS to have a more fractured and insecure southwestern border.
