We have always tried to offer economical products, while keeping our materials and production in the USA. We could drastically reduce our costs by having our products made overseas. We are not going to do that. Between a new federal rule that has impacted the prices of metals (especially brass) and drastically increased fuel costs which affect the price of everything, we regret that we will have to raise prices on all units.
The odd change on the prices reflects our efforts to stretch every dollar and squeeze every penny. We are grateful for your support of our mission and hope that you will stick with us.
