Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just been told the training injectors cost over £250 quid EACH. That's a lot of light bulbs! ;-)

    Can someone who knows what they're talking about confirm or deny this please? Or have I got the NSN for a different item?

  2. Cue Q..............
     
  3. Speak to your QM's Dept, they will know. They have to have access to the costs of all materiel for calculating write-off values. If they are too expensive, are you going to stop using them?
     
  4. It was the RQMS who gave me the cost - it's a beeping little thing made of plastic so some mistake surely!

  5. Plastic tube 2pence, Spring inside at MOD procurement price £149.98pence. Construction and shipping £100.
     
  6. Got 10 at my last unit no hassle - this time I was allowed one but need to keep it behind glass it seems.

    691001-555-7611 Morphine Training Device Analgesic Auto-Injector Drill <-- Apologies - this is the one that cost the money - what's the difference?

  7. Can anyone help please?

  8. It costs £15 for the real thing with 10mg of Morphine in.
     
  9. That does seem a tad too much. It is quite difficult to get prices for some medical supplies. The best I can do at the moment is tell you that about 18 months ago they cost 6.70. I would be very surprised if they had increased to over £250.00!

    Regards,

    Q.

    PS. Just to clear it up:

    6910 01 555 6911 Training Device Morphine (for training)

    6505 99 147 0945 Morphine Sulphate 10 m/g Auto Injector Syringe with Needle (the real thing!)
     
  10. Can't the UK make a Training Device Morphine (for training) then ?
     
  11. I'd get a picture of one and demonstrate with a biro.
     
  12. I've got the NSN on an official receipt with bar codes and everything so somehow that price has been set up - they even rang Bicester to check. I have 11 to play with so not quite at the biro stage yet!

    Ta!
