    Taurus g2c, Taurus mfg cost?

    I have heard the dealer cost is roughly $170. How much does Taurus make on this??? Know the gun only sells $189 to 220 depending on the dealer.

    Made over seas labor is next to nothing... Of course citizens there do not have our style of government There fishing without a license is a wrist/hand slapping offense and to enter their country illegally is prison time, here in the good ole USA it is totally backwards on top of slapping the hand for entering ILLEGALLY we give you free stuff like housing,insurance, welfare checks that the rest of our citizens PAY FOR and cannot get.

    Your explanation makes no sense. I just bought a Taurus Spectrum from Rural King for $119.99 and it is made in the USA. Heritage Rough Riders sell in the range of $120-$130 when they are NOT on sale and they are made in the USA. Heck, even Ruger sells a USA made SAA revolver (Wrangler) for under $200.

    As with cars..."Made in USA" is loosely defined.

    Edit: I looked up some numbers. The average monthly income in Brazil is roughly $400. But let's use the figures for the state that Taurus is located in. That's..

    "Rio Grande do Sul stands out among the Federation Units as the fifth Brazilian state with the highest average per capita monthly income in the year 2010, with an amount of R$ 959.24. Concerning the average salary² for December 2016, according to RAIS, the State was in the fifth position among the Federation Units, with a figure of R$2,692. 58."

    Using the higher number (average salary for workers with a contract), at roughly 4 $BR to the $US that's $673 a month.

    I think they probably make most of the parts in Brazil, or at least the expensive ones (frames and slides), and assemble here.

    Definition of clip

    1: any of various devices that grip, clasp, or hook
    2: a device to hold cartridges for charging the magazines of some rifles; also : a magazine from which ammunition is fed into the chamber of a firearm.

    Yes, my guess is that a few components come in from Brazil.

    My late uncle used to be a business consultant, and we were going over a cousin's invention and what it cost. My uncle said mfg'ers cost of MSRP was typically 35%. Not sure if that included labor or not. Years ago when I was a Domino's mgr, we had to do cost sheets every night. Food costs couldn't be more than 29% as I recall (did not include labor). But that was the food biz, which can be labor intensive. It's hard to say what a G2C costs Taurus, but it can't be much more than 40%. Of course, that is a SWAG (scientific wild a$$ guess).
    God wishes, the Devil expects.

    Look at it this way... Many polymer and even all metal handguns from Glock, Sig, HK, S&W, Walther, CZ, etc cost around the same price if not more than many of the rifles that are on the market. Sometimes for around the same price or more than their own line of rifles/shot guns that they sell. Rifles that require more manufacturing time and cost, use more metal and polymer, and have barrels that are thicker and 4 times or more as long. Not only that, the U.S. taxes rifles at a higher rate than handguns... The OP's should be wondering why are other manufacturers' handgund are so expensive, and how much profit are they making. If Glock, for example, are able to practical give their pistols aeay to L.E. and the military and still make a profit, I'd say they're making a killing selling to us civilians...
