i sure hope its better than some S&W MP bullshit
it's basically a CZ. looks exactly the same. pretty stupid if u ask me, and i love armalite.
It's not the same the CZ will probably be $200+ cheaper
Can't tell if it's gonna be cheaper until it finally comes out. But yeah it looks a lot like a cz75.
I'd almost bet it'll be cheaper.
what's a cz75 nowadays? $350 NIB? the armalite will probably be around $500-600
Why do you guys think it'll be cheaper.
They're probably modeling the price structure for these pistols based directly off Springfields model for the XD... i.e. import a low cost, decently built pistol, stamp their name on it, and charge you a couple of hundred $$$ extra.
I'm sure that Glocks cost a LOT more to produce than XDs
So these guns will be made in Turkey?
Turkey, Croatia whats the difference? Probably better quality from Turkey
I guess this is the new thing; established companies finding some cheap ass gun that nobody knows about from some shithole of a country, then importing it under some highspeed lowdrag sounding name like and markup the price 1000%.
First Springfield, now Armalite... who's next?
same basic materials.. the cyanide to do the tenifer process might cost a little though..
is austrian labor more expensive than croatian labor?
I know the HS2000's were selling for like $250 before springfield bought them out and slapped their name on it.. so even then they had to be making at least some profit..
Hmm I believe the Egyptians make some sort of 1911 knock off thats actually not a bad gun, sounds like a good candidate.
"what the gay is an HS2000.. sounds like a POS.. must be for only $250.."
"omg SPRINGFIELD XD I'm buying one "
It's made by SPRINGFIELD™, so it's gotta be good.
glocks cost about $75 to make, i dont know about the xd. prolly like $10
Looks like a cheap pos
looks like a 1911 fucked a cz
I like it.
Every industry does this. Firearms aren't on to something new here.
Americans will pay for it, so they mark it up. Not 1/10000th of the people that bought an XD even knew what the hell a HS2000 was before Springfield adopted it.
looks like a mix of an argus and a cz
Not bad looking, I did some looking around online and seen mixed reviews of it. But that's normal with almost any gun. Atleast they're not all bad reviews.
