    I just received a hardcopy of the catalog in the mail today. I'm in the process of scanning and compiling the pages so that everyone can see the handgun prices. It will definitely be up no later than tomorrow.

    EDIT:

    *** Here it is! ***

    (21 MB, pdf) It's uploading at the moment and should be up by 10:50 EST.

    This should cover all handguns in the catalog. If you can't read something, or would like me to rescan a page, just holler.

    Or you could just download it from CDNN's site. Probably a little less work that way.

    Outstanding.

    Thanks for posting that, the hardcopy catalog hasn't caught up since my last move yet.

    As far as I know, you can only view the firearms by catalog or by calling to see what they have.


    They have a couple different kinds now I think.

    Thanks for the work but it seems like cdnn doesn't want my business if we have to go to this much trouble. I'm going to be shopping at dealers that are proud to sell handguns.

    I realize that doesn't really impact you at all, but just in case anyone from cdnnn reads this you know... ;)

    I hear ya. If they had prices online, or had rushed the catalog a little more (took me 6 weeks to get it), I very well may have purchased a gun from them. Instead, I just picked up something at a local shop. Their loss.

    CDNN does not post the price of guns because FFL holders are greedy and want to buy guns to sale at a profit. It is very hard to do if the consumer can buy the gun at the same price as the dealer.

    One easy solution is dealers only buy demo models for stock. If a customers wants that model it can be ordered in and sold at wholesale to the customer.

    The dealer has to make a profit or go out of business. This will have to be added to the transfer fee. The transfer fee will be based on what that dealer needs to survive and profit. The impact would be nil for me personally. I could double or even triple my transfer fee and not hurt my business at all.

    It is a win win thing. Customers get wholesale, and dealers do not have to spend a lot of money on new gun stock other than trade in stuff.

    Well since the only possible outcome of his actions is that CDNN might sell someone a gun, I don't think CDNN is going to get upset with him.:D

    I think if some of the dealers who buy from CDNN complain to them about his posting this would be his last catalog.

    I think CDNN is in the business of selling guns and could care less about who buys them.

    If that were true, they would have printed the prices in their online catalog. I suspect their business model is not quite as simple as what you might think. No retailer wants his wholesale cost known to the general public.

    CDNN sales guns in volume. Those sales are to FFL holders. Apparently they must have demanded that the prices not be posted. Maybe CDNN went out on a limb and changed it themselves to spur increased sales to dealer stock.

    Maybe they should just continue posting the price so that the individuals know what to expect. They should also have a discount for the FFL.

    This would save the dealer from adding on to the price as a increased transfer fee.

    Now this is interesting. The last time I got a CDNN catalog it had handgun prices. I always assumed those prices were for private buyers, and that dealers paid wholesale.

    I have ordered used Glocks for customers before. There was no discount for the gun. I did get a small discount for ammo I purchased few years ago. I think it was 3 or 5%.

    Just look at how many gun manufacturers do not allow their prices online. Easy fix for cdnn is to take them all out. Yes it is not good for the people actually buying them. Manufacturers making it harder for customers to compare prices and get the best deal possible, which keeps the smaller retailers in business as they can't get the volume discount price. Very complicated.
