From the KT Ordnance site:
While we are required by law to accept FRN's (FRN = Federal Reserve Notes), we prefer to accept payment in gold and silver coins.
As an added incentive, we offer a discount on orders paid with Gold/Silver Eagles.
Our monetary denomination for Gold/Silver Eagles is the face value (fv) of gold and silver coins as described in the Constitution.
Payment can be tendered in Gold/Silver Eagles or FRNs.
Silver Eagles - $1 sfv (1 oz.)
Gold Eagles - $50 gfv (1 oz.), $25 gfv (0.50 oz.), $10 gfv (0.25 oz.), $5 gfv (0.10 oz.)
Am I reading this right?! They give a small discount on orders paid using gold coins at FACE VALUE? So, for a 1 ounce gold coin worth nearly $1,000 they will credit you for the $50 face value?
So If you pay for the 60% receiver with 4 $50 gold coins they will send you back a $25 discount even though you just gave them $4,000.00??? WTF are they talking about?
There's actually different prices listed as well... for example....
From their website:
KT-15-A - Aluminum Frame
- $12.00 sfv / $10.00 gfv <- what's this?
- $250.00 FRN
so- a 10.00 gfv (which is .25 of an ounce) would cost 250...
It's no discount, actually being that gold is just over 1k, it's a bit more expensive... but not nearly as bad as you were thinking... :)
