At the initial price point, I said no way! At this new price, I'm far more tempted.

Those selling used got screwed but the market will balance itself out soon. 350-ish was what it should have been from the beginning.

An all mech version would be nice. With Empire's new autococker and GOGs EnMey, the non-blowback mech market is beginning to look nice.

It's not that dishonest when you think that the stores are going to be loosing profit on markers they bought at a higher price point. That's always the problem with price drops like that. The stores still have bought and paid for stock that they may now be taking a loss on. The Crossover is decent.. Stores shouldn't have to essentially be giving people money to buy them

^That's true. I wonder how much warning the retailers were given. Is there really any good way of facilitating a price drop? It seems to be great for everyone but those with the marker in hand.

Reminds me of what Kingman did a number of years ago.

As far as I know the company i work for didn't have a whole lot of warning at all. Regardless to the fact if we did or not, most companies aren't huge fans of MAP violations. So even if we knew, we couldn't post a deeply discounted sale on our website.. Kind of a bad situation for retailers. They were hard to sell at the old price point so this will help, but to what ends...

^I have never seen one in use but there are a few people on here that speak highly of it. Broch thinks it is the cat's ***, if memory serves.

EDIT: I can't say ***.

GOG Enemy is only $129. Evny and G1 are even selling for less than this gun. I'll just stick with my SP plastic guns, they don't let me down and the price on them is worth it.

Later,
