    Still a bargain considering what you get.
     
  7. I'd rather see them raise prices slightly than reduce the quality of the guns.

    I don't know if there's a car brand that Glock could be clearly likened to. Glock delivers unsurpassed reliability and design simplicity at a much lower pricepoint than the other big names like Sig, HK, etc. I guess the comparison is somewhat difficult to make as a big portion of a car is the drivetrain but with guns, calibers are universal.

    But did this year bring a rise in operating costs or did huge demand leave them thinking they could charge more?

    Based on the commodity data I'm seeing at work, yes, commodities are on the rise again as global demand spurred by stimulus money increases.

    What's their profit margin right now? Less than $100 to make?

    The closest comparison I could come up with would be Honda of the early 1990s before you started paying a shit-ton for the name.
     
  15. I think that's kind of beside the point. Somewhere along the line Glock decided they wanted to make more money. They could either raise prices or they could try to save money on the parts they use. I'm glad they chose to go with a small increase in price.

    This is easy. They're the Toyota 1990's trucks of guns. Hold their value and pretty much indestructable.
