You completely missed the implication. It was in response to a comment that the prices asked start plummeting when a maker is going to ditch a product:S&W has nothing to do with Walter.
Smith and Wesson have been lowering their prices on many of their models to ridiculously low levels lately, thus my tongue-in-cheek comparison.That is usually a sign of discontinuance.
This is predominantly the result of the purchase by Umarex. They are/have destroyed Walthers great name. Carl & Fritz Walther are probably turning over in their graves knowing their names are on some of the products out today.Walther is doing the same thing that Packard tried to do in the 30s...
Compete in the bottom end of the market, where it can only ruin it's name, what's left of it.
