    Went to my locat armory yesterday and picked one of these up...really liked the feel of it..seems pretty well built. Anyway's the price was like $799 and I thought these were going to be more like a $650 gun? My local place usually is very competitive with online prices so I thought I would come here and see what ya all think..

    Your place isn't very competitive. I paid $700 for mine. Saw one yesterday locally for $749.

    I seem to always pay top dollar for guns, and so as not to break a trend, I paid $799 for my RO here in the Phx area. I thought it was a good value at that price and still do. Would have been even better for fifty bucks less, however.

    Im really not sure how some dealers are/were getting them at the prices they are. We shopped around at pretty much all of our distributors and going rate for one from us is also $799 and we are very competitively priced on all of our products. Unless dealers got them through their stocking dealer programs, Im not sure how their selling them for what they are. A few prices some have mentioned are cheaper than what we could even get them for!

    Probably the lower priced dealers buy in bulk. The "1 of 500" RO's come with a 20 gun package dealers buy.

    Where in central Ohio? I'm interested. I didn't see any at Vance's, and I generally don't go to new Albany unless it's to shoot.

    Sure you get the lower priced one but the ones that are selling for more are the good ones, you know the ones with the adjustable sights already adjusted......pay the xtra $50 and save the wear and tear on your screwdriver.
