April Copper Price Increase!

Posted by

As we all know by now, we have been experiencing inflation in everything and now copper supplies are even more limited in availability. This spring C2100 took a big jump. So a price increase on the Gator and other copper gas checks has become necessary again. Larry Blackmon kept his production cost very low for many years, but the current times were living in has fully caught up with our small businesses.

Gator gas checks use the C2100 alloy and that metal has been the most costly to acquire when it can be acquired. So, we will be increasing the Gator gas check prices as the older stock is sold out. The Aluminum materiel has increased less, so far the prices will be holding there. The C1100 or pure copper gas checks will increase some in cost also, but hopefully not as much. 

.30 caliber Gator checks will be going up $5 per thousand, which will be $34.00 a thousand. That is the largest price increase ever, but the increased material cost is beyond our control.

USPS Ground Advantage rates have lowered the shipping cost for many order sizes, so that will be the primary method of shipping now. I can ship a 1,000 .44 Copper gas checks for $7.99 instead on the previous $9.99 flat rate.

USPS is still the most cost effective way to ship [...]
