Just had the new rrp £426
So sorry lads prices will be going up
Glad i have one then
At those prices I can't see the EB remaining the most popular scope in HFT for long
Blimey, glad I got mine when I did... always thought it was an awful lot of glass for the money so can't say I am suprised.
Blimey thats near on doubled hasn't it ?
What price a Nikko Sniper now?
Glad I've got 2, then
That's a lorra cash
No the old rrp was £355, still a jump of £70 though!!!
Ah, i'm thinking 2nd hand prices then maybe Pete ?
Yeah 2nd hand around the £180 mark, i was knocking new ones out for £260-70, but will have to up the price now.
Ahh, I thought I saw you selling them for around that price, hence the confusion
I imagine that they'll still be good value for money if Pete can get them at the right price but I can see sales suffering where retailers are concerned.They're good but lets face it who's got 400+ spare to splash out at the mo ? Not many people I imagine !!!
I so glad I've got mine,will not be changing for sometime they are great scopes.
any obvious reason for price hike or is it just the economic situation at the moment because that is more than a 2nd hand pcp for most people
That's more than the 6500 its a good scope but its not that good
Don't forget though the rrp for a 6500 is £787
I know a chap that can get them cheaper
When the prices would have been calculated (around the turn of the year) the $ was very strong against the £ which will have effected it to an extent. Also the cost for manufacturing anything is high at the minute as things are slower and production costs have risen - Even in China/Japan. Currency has a huge effect on everything we buy especially if it's imported - Look at how much Walthers and Steyrs have gone up in the past year!
But other than that, they're in business to make money with things the way they are they'll have forecast fewer sales so increased the margins to make the same profit and keep things afloat.
Thats quite a jump in price,very nice scope though.I wish I haden't had to sell mine.
