Response to HW97
HW's are made in Germany/Europe so we (I live in Belgium, Europe) don't have to pay that much shipment. However, Beeman imports most of the HW's in the US and they have to make some profit as well. And the shipment costs are much higher when shipping from Europe to the US. Also IIRC Beeman does some upgrades on some models (e.g. laminate stock on RX-2 instead of beech on HW90). All this will explain at least part of the price difference.
But most of the time it's the other way around. A Bushnel Trophy 6-18x40 e.g. costs 370 euro ($ 460) in Belgium.
