Well you get the body kit, the snatch pin($40), the new bolt ($40), the headlock ($20). The total of the 3 parts alone without the body kit is around $100. I really hope they offer JUST the body kit without all the other accessories and at a decent price. Cross your fingers.
Price has already been confirmed in a previous thread(from David Palmer) as $399.
My GUESSES ON PRICING** these are purely speculation with no knowledge backing them.
1)They offer a body kit for 399, might seem abit steep but it is quality---something for poorer quest users who want to refresh the look of their marker, and have a LE.
2) Q7, sexy new look of our favorite gat, 10x more streamline...and 7 oz lighter.....I am betting on a $999 pricetag, probably droping to 899 a few months after release.
3) Kelevera, "Bad Dog", With all the features I have heard from Cole, and bragging from Dave....I see it around $1199 Like Bob Longs new(er) toy.
Considering the quality of the markers I think price is even more justified than most of the other 07 line around the league. The Dm7 maybe beautiful, but there is no way any gat is worth 1399+(I hope I dont eat my words on this.)
^^^^Pure speculation and business reasoning skills. Last years Quest was $895 and it was the very first year, without going for any outrageous(=More expensive milling) just to show the world what the Quest had to offer. Now with a proven design
(Flame somewhere else if your angry because you broke your own quest and your bitter....or if you thing poor harnesses & a defective run of GM bolts would make my statement untrue) they have the ability to mold it into one of the lightest, most streamline gats available...so yes it is going to cost more, aggressive milling is not cheap, ESPECIALY when your shaving 7oz, alot of OOPS might happen making a marker that slender, and those bodies will never be sold and be a loss(of $).
Regardless I am ranting, I dont know why, I am done, be happy....
