RE: VLTOR Weapons Systems Price increase 8/1/2022
Dear Valued Customer:
VLTOR Weapon Systems continues to experience cost increases and limited supplies of many of our key raw materials. At the same time, we are faced with increased labor, energy, and transportation costs. We have neem able to shoulder these increases for the better part of the two years to shield our customers as much as possible.
for the first time in over 15 years, VLTOR Weapon Systems will be increasing prices on all products by 5% across the board (MSRP, MAP, Dealer, Distributor, OEM).
This price increase will take effect August 1st 2022.
The price increase will apply to all orders placed after 11:59pm July 31st 2022

With everything going on in regards to the economy and shortages of every commodity nowadays, this announcement comes as no surprise to me. VLTOR wasn’t the first to be forced to increase their prices and certainly will not be the last. I actually give them kudos for holding out the past two years and weathering the storm, but realistically they wouldn’t have been able to do it forever. With any luck, things will calm down soon and prices and product availability will stabilize.
