Probably just doing the cost/benefit analysis. $3900 or so is a good price on an SP89. Better to pay that and have it now, than pay that - or more - in 5 years.One of the gb ones is at 3900 anyone on here? If so what you snorting lol
I remember some people were able to buy the SP5K for $1950 - $2150 when they first came out. I don't recall the inflated prices that I'm seeing now, if memory serves right the average price was $2400 and when they dried up some sold theirs for $3500.This fear mongering is bullsh*t. Similar thing happened in 15 or 16' with the SP5K. Wait a bit. Unless you need one under the xmas tree.
These guys are selling for $2500:There will be a couple lucky here and there in places like bum**** Montana getting one for $2400 from their buddy who owns a gun shop in a one horse town but aside from a few outliers you're insane if you think these will go below $2700+ anytime in 2020.
it's going to take HK a long time to catch up with 25+ years of demand / desire
Again, bless the souls of those who wait and think these will be "cheaper" around the months leading up to election
I'm more or less talking the final, big numberYeah? I just turned one down for 2699. Isn't that under 2700?
I tend to think you're right. I scored mine for $2300 (granted, I don't have it yet -- so that is a different story), but through readily available channels MSRP+ seems to be the reality for the forseeable future.Again, bless the souls of those who wait and think these will be "cheaper" around the months leading up to election
It is. You may be smart enough to do arithmetic, but not wise enough to refrain from looking a gift horse in the mouth. I'd scoop one for $2700 out the door, taking it home immediately. If the $2300 order pans out this month, that's great -- happy to have two. If not? I got mine.Yeah? I just turned one down for 2699. Isn't that under 2700?
Lol, I guess it depends on who you talk to. The guy said they were accepting orders and didn't know why they wouldn't ship out-of-state. I'm going to be patient and see if I can find locally. I never really wanted one until this one came out of the blue. I could never bring myself to get a POF, Zenith, etc. I think things will calm down and prices will level out. If they don't, I'm in exactly the same spot as a couple of days ago.None in stock and they won't ship out of state. You have to pick them up in the store. They are making a waiting list if you're local.
Youre neglecting to mention the hundreds in taxes and fees. With the internet being so prominent with purchases it's best to just say the final number. Far less confusion.
I know people who bought online for $2900. They aren't paying state taxes and fees and whatnot
Your "2700" is really $ 2900++
I passed on one for 100 under MSRP plus tax. I would have bought it but the tax just killed the deal. Wait and see what the future holds.
I too would buy one for 2700 OTD. I don't think $2699 plus $216 tax a gift horse. You may have more money than sense but I am not in that boat. I'll wait for a better deal.It is.

I'm not shocked at all. That is why I went nuts calling vendors while folks here were still calling BS, thinking it was a rumor. As soon as I saw Marine0303 say its happening, I picked up the phone.Heck they’re approaching $4k on GB on some auctions. I’m shocked. I grabbed mine for $2499 plus tax this past weekend and absolutely no regrets.
