Recently I began to look at D.A. 22 revolvers. I am blown away at the high prices these things are going for. I see prices that average from 550.00 to over 700.00 for a basic gun. Sure you can get a single action for a lot less but I would like to pick up a new D.A. for plinking. I have other 22's that I can use for that but just looking for something a little different. How can gun manufactures charge so much for these guns? Do they cost that much more to make? You can buy a good 1911 or even a AR for less than what they want for a D.A 22 revolver. What makes these guns so expensive? You can even buy a .38 or 357 for less than what they are charging for these 22's. I have looked on Gun broker and Arms list. I have even searched the LGS and pawn shops around here, but everywhere you go the prices are through the roof. I would accept a used gun in good condition or even a off brand gun if I could find one. I will not pay these prices for a gun that serves no other purpose than punching holes in paper. I just do not understand why they cost so much. Thanks for letting me vent.
