I have noticed that also that all kind of S&W accessories have really appreciated in price.

The original grips that were changed out on most guns in the 1970s and 80s and thrown in a bin in the very corner of the gunstores are now also bringing more money than most quality aftermarket grips.

I was just thinking the same thing. I was going to say anyone that flips out at paying $100+ for good screw drivers obviously hasn't ever used a set of $100 screw drivers!

I'll gladly pay the price for a premium tool such as Snap-On.

Snap-On is the HK of tools. They are expensive when compared to everyone else but no other compares to them.

For light hand tools, maybe. For large, industrial hand tools it's either Wright or Proto.

If I had one like it, I wouldn't sell it for $100.00.

You can't just run down to Wal-Mart and buy one like it.

Now, if I just wanted to adjust my sights, my Swiss Army Knife would do.

Those Dan Wesson's are annoying with their Allen wrenches.

CDNN had the round plates with four different blades a while back, both S&W (1988 to 1991 version ) and Colt. I got a few for my collection.

Oh, I think they weren't $100...

I have a few of the aluminium handled ones that I accumulated over the years, they really work well.

And I thought $14 for a Piña colada at Serendipity 3 in Vegas was bad!
