Space Gun?

  1. But since it's a .22LR, at least it choots cheap!

    It looks like it should be painted green and silver with an orange tip.

  4. But then it'd look, well, ordinary.
    And "ordinary" simply doesn't command an inflated price tag.

    That is rather crazy on the price isn't it?
     
  6. Personally I don't care for the slide. But can't say the price is out of line either. I paid that for my GSG 1911/22 with aftermarket slide and Burris Fastfire. All told the guy put $700+ into it.

    So it looks like they started with a real gun in 9mm then had to cut the hell out of that slide to get it to cycle with a .22lr
    Same page shows a 9mm that looks pretty similar.

    I looked this gun up. It looks like it started out as this before it got uglyized.

    That looks like a Beretta slide on a polymer frame.
    Are those Turkish made?

    $2.17 per slide with the highest tolerance, smoothest surface, most complex geometry, 6x2x2 envelope with 75% fill, using ZA-8, since they didn't have 3 and I didn't want to play with the slides.

    How much you estimate the production cost of a Hipoint handgun to be?
    $35-$40?

    Depends on how fast you need to amortize start up costs, and what you pay your help.

    But yeah, I think you are close.

    Probably closer to $50 to keep it on the high side with all the overhead included.
