We really hate raising prices, but we have been holding off as long as we could and the pricing of components just keeps going up each year. We need to announce that the base rifle package price on the Remington 700 package and Howa 1500 tactical rifle package will be going up on May 1, 2017. The Tikka T3x package prices will remain the same for the time being.
Of course, if you already have a rifle package on order, your pricing will not be effected and if you order before May 1, 2017 you will get the current pricing. The Remington 700 base package price will be $1450 and the Howa 1500 base package price will go up to $1350. All of the upgrade prices will stay the same. At the same time we are looking at changing the base scope from the Bushnell Elite Tactical 10x40mm to a variable power Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-12x40mm. We are testing that scope right now to insure that it is suitable, but testing so far says it is a nice upgrade to the Bushnell.
Again, we are sorry to have to raise the prices, but unfortunately it is a fact of business life that the cost of components seems to always go up. The packages are still the best deal going and we love building the creations that our Sniper Central community members come up with!
