    Supply and demand is what regulates price.... That listing on GB has sold quite a few in that price range. I do know that these will be in short stock thru the end of the year, there are currently more buyers than there is inventory.

    550 through V1 tactical with eta of nov and M 550 for dec now that the early batch is sold. 900 now is very expensive and price gauging to me. I’m not saying there isn’t a demand but 900 before shipping and tax is price gauging as far as I’m concerned and would keep me away from carry connection and avoid recommending them because of it.

    I am sure no one is holding a gun to the head of the buyers that purchased them. So do you consider all of the high prices on ammo price gouging? I have not found any place selling ammo for what it was selling for 5 months ago. It is simply supply and demand. Every new firearm that comes out sells for hundreds of dollars over MSRP providing ist not a piece of junk. If we are Steyr fans, we should be thrilled they are selling that high. If they were selling for any less it would be a sign of poor quality. I am hard-pressed to see that place selling them at that price once they get them. There are so many places currently taking people's money at low prices then not coming through on the orders. Broken dreams... Time will tell.

    Very few guns sell for msrp. Street price isn’t msrp and over msrp is price gouging. If the gun isn’t in production or your adding accessories I get elevated prices. Most guns that have gone up have just gone up to msrp. Companies that go over I find unethical. They don’t have to be ethical but I don’t have to buy from them. Yes with many local dealers I put money down and they order it, it has always come in at that price. Do I have to wait? Absolutely, but it’s not on the local it’s the manufacturer like with the mdr. All my A1s were under msrp and all were special ordered on the time frame I was told minus the mdr which kept changing. When paying hundreds over msrp I find that wrong and no I don’t buy from them again. That said I probably wouldn’t ever buy or recommend carry connection anyway as I do try to buy local as much as I can but if someone were to ask I would remind them of the time they sold guns for 25% over msrp and they should go to a place like V1 tactical who didn’t do that. Most ammo I buy is by the crate or the barrel unless it’s a oddball Round for me like 7.5 French or 8mm Mauser or protection rounds.

    Are you located in the US and are you aware of what is taking place within the firearms industry? MSRP and below is what you used to buy for months ago.

    Of course and yet I still can buy under or worst At msrp. I just put a order in for 2 pistols at 550 each with a msrp of 675 each. Last month I bought another shot gun at msrp and before that a French mas 49/56 which I thought was fair deal with surplus starting to be hard to find in good quality. Optics are about the same price and suppressors are about the same outside of YHM which are just not in stock at the moment. Places I go worst case scenario is msrp, they don’t go over. LGS and big box stores here if they go up just do msrp which many did before on the big box side. I haven’t seen price gouging here on guns, just lack of stock and less deals, although stock is pretty much back on most stuff.

    You can buy hunting, oddball, and off-brand items at MSRP all day long today. Quality defensive items are commonly going for far above MSRP. Run a search on GB, and GA and see where Steyr pistols have been selling for the past few months. The last L9-A2 that sold on Armslist 20 days ago sold for 1600.00. I will reiterate my above statement, I don't believe anyone held a gun to those buyers head for them to buy at those prices. I will also venture to guess you have never run or managed a business before as you are having a difficult time grasping simple supply and demand of newly released items. Any Steyr fan should be thrilled to see this selling for these prices out of the gate, it says Steyr is a top-contender handgun. On the other side of the coin, those who purchased the very first available are at this very time handling their new A2 MF, and those who don't or won't are still visualizing holding and firing this long-awaited handgun. Call me crazy, but I purchased the very first C9-A2 MF that was sold (at the higher price) and already have a cool 1000 rounds through it without any regret. Message me once you finally receive yours and let me know what you think. Great improvement over the A1 and worth every penny I paid for it.

    Purchased two steyr A2 for 550 each, msrp 675 this month. Wanted a M and a C to complete the spread. They had L9 A2 in stock for 550 last week. Started a project and got a mossberg 590 at msrp as well as a another Glock 19x at msrp. Mossberg is for a choate stock I got on dvor and I heard the 19x Is going out of production so I wanted one. Quality guns should be msrp at highest and places that price gouge should be avoided. I don’t celebrate any guns being sold over priced especially when their intended use is defensive. Oddball, quality defensive, and hunting are all included in what I said above. The p320s are 50 below msrp at both lgs I frequent and are in stock. The p365 are going for msrp. I stand by the statement of the lgs I frequent at worse are msrp. GB is not a good place to go by as that is always high. GB and Gun prime both are over priced on most of everything. Everyone on there thinks they have the world most special handgun and you should pay double or it’s possible to be sold in a ban state. Even if you get a deal by bidding on there it’s a good chance the seller will say it’s sold locally so they can’t sell it to you if they don’t get the min they want. If big box like sportsman’s they will just say here is a free shipping Coupon since it’s sold. I run my own business and have 45 direct service staff With 10 admin staff across 5 counties. 10 years ago I had 8 so I believe I know something about business in my industry. I don’t rip people off, I offer a quality service at a fair rate with sliding scale fees, programs for Leo/mil, and in some cases pro bono work. Supply and demand are very much a thing but I still believe price gouging is unethical and I spend my money at places that don’t engage in that practice. Also for the A2 I’ve already posted pics of mine, it’s a good pistol with very few complaints. Complaints so far with the A2 are no optics mount, no accessories(a few holsters), and no support from steyr to make the removable trigger group a actual feature.
