    It's dealers dude. We've always gotten hosed by our retailers. You wanna know why they are 3799 now? Because at 3299 they flew off the shelf. I'll admit i dont recall them being 2799 but i could believe they disappeared off the shelves pretty quick. They will keep raising the prices till people stop buying them to find that max profit sweet spot.

    Why else is vp9/p30 mags 90 bucks here and 35 bucks in the states? Even with a conversion rate it's 45 bucks here. Throw in economy of scale(harder to do on a globally made product) and maybe 55 to 60 bucks. Then it magically costs another 30 bucks more?

    As for your arguement of the value of the features, thats up to the end user to determine. If you want to run a dd stock... you're right the value proposition is low on the hks front. But i have seen plenty of dd owners ditch their mil spec trigger(i do agree ar mil spec triggers are quite good) for geissele 2 stage triggers. Im saying if you want to get a dd or a cc or bcm and add all the features the hk has stock... it's gonna come to a higher cost... or at least when they were 3299 it would have.

    Recent price bump to 3799 is disturbing.
