hey, i have an idea. it's pretty raw and could use a lot of refinement. or can be trashed. just for fun, maybe we can make a small contest about whose country's gun runners or gun regulating body makes the most money. im sure a lot of the people here would like to move to or away from the country/location that wins, depending on the person. i bet this would be difficult to work out. we will need some guidelines, ie. domestic sales only (military contracts, exports, and underground sales are not included); limited to same model Steyrs only (open to other makes and models and calibers, if you can be bothered.) currently as i have no knowledge of the margins and volumes applied on these guns, (this study would be so much better if these were available.) let's just put the most premium on cost. M9A1 category 1.) New Zealand = US$1338 2.) Uruguay = US$930 3.) Philippines = US$818 4.) US = US$350 as you can see, New Zealand is leading the Steyr Price Olympics. butch_d, you have a pm.
