PSA, are your price increases on the blemished lowers permanent?

Thank you for your inquiry.

I am not sure how to answer your question.

Prices are always changing due to increases in demand and availability of product.

If product availability goes down, prices may rise further. If availability goes up, prices will drop.

It all depends on the buying habits of your fellow Americans.

I did notice the cut back on free shipping. I ordered this this morning... http://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-pa47-16-midlength-7-62x39mm-1-10-nitride-upper-with-bcg-and-ch.html

Then ordered these http://www.primaryarms.com/asc-7-62x39mm-30-round-ar-15-magazine-mgasc762-30rd-ss best price on AlGore's amazing internet.......... I see you have the blem lower with the Magpul ACS-L buttstock. I have 3 of them on my blem AR's I bought from you. I am going to hold off on getting one until there is free shipping. http://palmettostatearmory.com/blem-psa-ar-15-complete-lower-magpul-acs-l-edition-black-no-magazine-7778700.html

Why is that from a manufacturer stand point? I'm selling thingamajigs that cost $1 each and have been sold for $2 for the past year. Now all of sudden out of the blue everyone one is buying up my thingamajigs, and inventory is getting low. Explain why the price of my $1 product jumps up to $3 or $4 in price retail?

It makes sense why price raise in the private sector, but from a manufacturer point of view, is it just a opportunity to increase profits?

Make no mistake. While PSA has been great to deal with, they are a corporation.

And like any corporation, it's all about the bottom line. They are not here to make "deals".

Deals come when inventory piles up and revenue slows down.

LMAO come on guys. Capitalism. Supply vs demand. All things we need to support and accept. Unless you are on the other side and want socialism type policies.

WTF? I don't have a problem with that. I did order that lower without the free shipping. The ACS-L's don't stick around very long when you have them. I used to have a shopping list taped to the monitor. Now I have a face of Hitlery. It influences my spending.............:clown: Depending on the outcome of the election things could get really wiggie.

Have you considered that the manufacturer gets their forgings and other raw materials from other manufacturers?
