Shot Show 2018. Smith & Wesson Corp.

Вчера я уже начала писать о ножевых брендах, упустив обобщённую часть. Сделаю её в итоговой публикации.

Добавив и отзыв об оружейной.
Но, всё же, забегая вперёд напишу несколько предложений.

Что в тенденциях... В тенденциях снижение цен, затишье перед "рывком".

Как и написал уважаемый мной kiowa_mike, говоря о предстоящей IWA, ничего особо революционного нас не ждёт в ближайшее время.
Сами производители кулуарно говорят о том, что вкладываются в new products и "удивят", "порадуют". Скоро. Но, сейчас :)

В моей практике уже в этом году был случай, когда я срочно, по просьбе производителя, снимала публикацию об одном новом довольно интересном продукте ( оружейный сегмент, бренд называть не имею права ), так как возник конфликт патентов между несколькими оружейными монстрами.
Но, пока в закулисье готовятся нас поражать и разбираются друг с другом, будем смотреть на то, что есть :)
Это тоже бывает любопытно и неплохо.

Производитель сейчас в подавляющем большинстве пытается сделать жизнь своего потребителя "лайтовее". Снижая размеры, вес, цены.
Добавляя всякое-разное. Опять же: для комфорта своих клиентов ( на каких предметах я только не встречала USB отверстия, к примеру  :) )

Вскольз слушала мнения игроков рынка (продавцов), которые не особо одобряют снижение цен, чуть ли не обижаясь, что производитель демпинг устраивает.
Впрочем, отлично зная нашу реальность, мы вряд ли ощутим на себе такие изменения.

А теперь вернёмся к стенду Smith&Wesson.

Вначале обзоно посмотрим на стенд, затем остановимся на деталях :)













































Начнём мы с модели M&P10 Sport, которая предложена потребителю с ценником менее тысячи у.е. Первый релиз появился ещё в ноябре прошлого года.
