I don't know who has S&W surrounded???? ......angry S&W PPK owners???
Wish that were true, but it's probably not. Don't forget that Walther went bankrupt and Interarms could not sell enough of the U.S. made guns to stay in business. Price DOES matter.Increase the price, finish machine the pistol the way it is supposed to be made and they'll sell twice as many as they do now.
Oh, and profit. How did I forget that???? If the investors are not making a profit on their investment, the product will be shed in a hurry.It's really all about price point, cash flow, production rate, sales turnover, capital amortization, and economies of scale.
