Why is there such a big price difference between the Austrian GLOCKs and its neighbors to the North the Sigs and HKs? I dont believe for a second Sigs and HKs are better guns but I beg the question, why? On a model-to-model comparable basis, GLOCKs, Sigs, and HKs all seem relatively similar. Theyre mostly made from the same materials, theyre all tough and durable, theyre all just as accurate as the other. The only noticeable difference is the method of operation Striker vs hammer fired. Is this where the extra design costs are buried? By now though youd think its an exact science. So why the disparity in prices? I could understand $100, or even $150 or so, but an average USP or new Sig is $300-400 more than a comparable GLOCK. Why? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
