I've been looking around at bipods, and Versa-Pod offers one for about US $75 that seems identical to the AI version, which is an insane AU $630! :omfg:

a) generally speaking, are VP products any good?

b) how can AI possibly charge that for a bipod?

For the best opinion on bipods I suggest you ask Ex Stab, nice chap and will be honest with you! AI can charge what they want/market will bear!

Thanks ugly, I'd gathered that about AI (choke).

A bare-bones AWM- AU $10,000.
A Mauser 03 PH- AU $4,600.

I realise that they're meant for different roles, but a price difference like that is just laughable; two ready-to-go Mausers (plus some hefty change) for the price of an AWM with no sights? :roll:

Decision made!

Defence contractors charge like a wounded rhino dont they? Mind you whats the price difference between a modern up to date air force trainer and a civvy purchased lightplane?

I'd thought those stories about $800 hammers and $1500 toilet seats were apocryphal, now I'm not so sure. Especially considering the RAN's latest debacle...
