Worked like a charm
Two weeks ago I returned a NIB Surefire flash hider. They refunded me the full $150 price I paid when I purchased it... six years ago.

Being an early adopter is always more expensive. Why are you blaming Brownells for your mistake?
This item isn't some regular off-the-shelf piece of metal that will be a staple of the Brownell's catalog for decades to come. It was billed as (and priced as) something special and exclusive.
Lowering the price on something like this is a bit of a slap in the face to everyone who bought one already, for two reasons. One, they directly lose whatever funds they paid over and above the current price and two, the value of what they previously purchased is immediately reduced.
Is Brownell's perfectly fine doing whatever they want, whenever they want with the pricing of their merchandise?
Is it an annoyance to those who made "the mistake" of supporting the product early on at full price? Well, I can only speak for myself, but yeah, I get annoyed when I lose money.
They bought like 2200 forgings.
