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?

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.

$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.
