This one's a bit specific, but got me thinking why is this Assault rifle so cheap after browsing Furlok's Item reference page:

http://ja2.furlo.sk/

Now I know not all prices are either realistic or necessarily balanced and I don't want to open a hornets nest of why all guns are priced the way they are but this rifle seems to be quite a bargain, all the more so for a supposed special forces rifle. Could anyone explain why this rifle is so cheap? the only shortcoming I can see with it is it's reliability, but then it's no worse than an M4 or is the price a typo?

I only ask as I'm contemplating adding this to a mercs starting gear, generally I like to keep most starting kits on the cheap side and this fairly respectable gun is ticking a lot of boxes, but wanted to check on the price issue first.

Quite a few of the item prices are nonsense, due to there being no consistent overhaul in, like, ever.

If you want, you can donate to me. This will not affect how and what I code, and I will not code specific features in return. I will be thankful though.

Has there ever been any real talk on how pricing should be done? Like some base that could be understood and then the modders would warp things from? I assume most modders have had their own version. If not, maybe thats something for a few of the smart people to figure out. Something like
base price of the gun in 2000 or 2005 or 2010 or some year + % markup for the whole BR ships overseas and does all the legal/illegal stuff to get it to you equals the base BR price.
if such a system existed then maybe overtime we could convert things to it and keep new items in balance.

There is no RL consistency in prize for weapons,
export/transport/import restrictions and demand/supply ratio can easily bring it up to multiples of default,
while corrupt military elements ensure that mass produced weapons are sold at a fraction if there are plenty and no restriction,
like in a warzone.

Prizes could be used to balance stuff, e.g. make a good gun early available and expensive,
but perfect price balancing overall would kill the positive "got favourite item even some bucks cheaper than the one i dont like" effects,
and oppose RL where above factors vary with region.
