I thought that was good marketing, and looking after the business in order to keep employing people and investing for the future? That's what I would you do to make sure a business survives in the current climate?
If the prices are too high compared to the competition then they wont sell. The market will decide if they have it right. In truth neither gun was perfect and needed some mods, although I think both companies did let pre production guns out for trial.
If it wasn't for companies like AA and BSA we probably wouldn't have a FT or HFT scene, as it would be too expensive to get started for most.
