What effects pricing of guns the most?
What effects pricing of guns the most? Is it reliability, popularity or a little of both?
Been looking at several models tonight in the gun store. I see Glocks and XD's all priced around the $500 dollar range...among others.
I know Xd's are made in Croatia? I know from living in Europe that their pay scale is fairly low there. I know when I lived in Norway, before I heard the stories of people in some of the old eastern blocks making only a few hundred dollars a month in salary.
Then we have Glock, made in Austria. Austria is a rich little country and I know they are quality as its almost like Germany..lol but, I am sure their salaries are much higher in Austria than in Croatia.
Am I missing something here? I like both Glocks and Xd's for the record.
All things being equal that would make Glock the better value wouldn't it? as the XD could be made for a cheaper price in Croatia?
Just like some of the expensive tennis shoes here...that they make for 10 dollars in some other countries.
Just some thoughts.
Inquiring minds want to know ...
To make that statement you must know:
