Am I wrong to think that the cost in quid or British pounds sterling of 4,800 on their site is the Uk buyers true cost ?
You don't want me doing math and exchange rates. That's a step above my pay grade.
I suppose what I’m saying is this:
Let’s look at it in reverse
Say we have a particular scope made in the US , I know I know - what does that even mean these days ….
That scope is priced at 4K USD
We Americans value to US dollar at a 1-to-1 “home field” monetary value.
So say you got a Mexican down South (In Mexico) who is on the Internet and they view the US website and say Man I wish I could own that technology here in Mexico and pay pesos at a 1-to-1 rate , screw the Gringos and their exchange rate .
Which by the way in pesos the 4K us scope would be - 79k pesos.
THE SOLUTION FOR THE MEXICAN, would be to find a Mexican company to build the scope in Mexico for 4.5k in their pesos value.
So that’s the way I’m viewing this topic , we need an American company to source the tech and build us a 640 res 12 micron , 75mm scope for 4,500 USD.
No WiFi, No app, No onboard recording, no color palettes, just the basics please.
Now granted , nobody can build a scope for 4.5k pesos so the dollar value and the home field countries pay rates and economies have to be on the same plane as each other for this to work.
I don’t feel like we are that far behind the UK in GDP or that far ahead of MEX but I’m sure the national debt is holding us back from realizing this fantasy I’m having.
Damn it we need an Economist to sort this out now ….
