    I sell them at a discount, but all prices are based upon the list price.

    Danielle must need a new bus.

    First time in my life I've seen the USD about the same as the Canadian and AU dollars. Even the Pound is 2X ours. Must be global warming!

    Sportshot...your post suggests that you have never been inside the Perazzi factory. For your information they work a full day and work hard and enjoy it...and both Mauro and Danielle are on the shop floor.Steve Bunch

    Sportshot,

    Your posts are normally fairly reasoned – so what happened with the one on this thread?

    Everyones allowed a 'sore head day' but do you actually believe any of what you wrote?

    Regards

    I love my Perazzi, but before I would ever pay that for a new one, I would shoot my 1100 with beautiful wood that I paid $300 for! Those prices, and Kolars and Kreighoffs are plain nuts!

    How are the price increases running for 2008 on other brands of guns (Beretta, Browning, Caesar Guerini, etc.) considering the value of the dollar on the world market and fuel prices? Have any FFL holders or people who attended the Shot Show gotten 2008 price lists for other brands or talked to manufacturers/importers about 2008 prices?

    Sportshot,

    As an economist you may know that from 1980 to 2007 the UK price of an MX8 has not risen by much more than that expected due to inflation (this is using the UK government’s own inflation calculator). It would seem that prices of all the Italian made guns have risen in 2008 in the UK due partly to the expected ‘annual rise’ but mainly to the fact that the Pound bought 1.49 Euros in Jan 2007 now it buys only 1.32 Euros. The US dollar has fallen even more relative to the Euro over the same period so your comment regarding the

    I wonder if "gray market" perazzi's will become popular again if the price in the UK has been more stable than that in the US (gray market being those guns that are bought through UK dealers (such as litts), then shipped to the US because the all-inclusive price is cheaper than what can be found in the US).

    Re Russell's discussion above about Perazzi production in general and specifically the quality of barrels produced, with detail unnoticed by all but a few, etc. This is not to discredit Russell's opinion at all, but it is interesting that a fair percentage of "serious" American shooters, immediately upon purchase, send their new Perazzi off to one of several barrel/choke gurus here in the U.S. and have this finely produced barrel backbored, re-choked, and ported, which must be better than Perazzi can do, right? I guess this is just another example that if we think it's better, or are told so, then it must be better! And yes, the TM-1 I bought new in 1980 (and still have) was eventually sent off to Tom Sietz for the same treatment, along with a POI adjustment. The POI was the only difference I could really tell in the gun; before and after patterns appeared similar with only semi-scientific comparisons.

    As far as prices go, higher grade items not claimed to be bargain priced but of quality well above the norm and have the mystique, appeal, and pride of ownership that many of us are willing to pay for. Many of us are only limited by what we are able to pay, not by what we would pay if we had the ability to do so. Human nature I suppose.

    Break as many as you can and have fun...

    The RRP is sure increasing in the US. Interesting to note a few of the prices down under even with the current low US dollar.

    Well, those are retail prices.

    I would ask; how much have the retail prices gone up?

    What was/is the real "street" price in 2007 and what will it be in 2008 for the same model?

    ALF, You state: "I will not sell it for the price I have been asking." Apparently you are right since nobody has bought it from you. If they would not buy at the price you are/were asking, why would they buy at a higher price? I really doubt there is going to be a buying frenzy to suck up dealer existing stock at the "old prices."

    Sportshot...I'm in almost total agreement with you. for $16'000 yopu can buy a Honda civic or Toyotal corolla pretty well equipped. And they are a heck of a lot more value for the money spent. While I dont disagree that the manufacturersl, distributors and dealers are deserving of a good profit for the time and money invested, maybe the ladies underwear manufacturer is a bit more profitable for his investment.
