This is from another post on how mass production works. It is from the serial number discussion that has been going on for 13 years.
"Talking to S&W there is no rhyme or reason as to serial numbers and build dates. Someone in a suit decides they are going to make a run of 10,000 guns. They are going to make $100 off of each so 1 million dollars off of that production run. He puts people on it and they make sure they have all the parts they need to make 10,000.
They do it and maybe the one thing they don't have is 10,000 cases. That's why some people get a black case, blue case or cardboard box."
I hope that makes some people feel better about getting a cardboard box.
I prefer the S&W cardboard boxes. They are right along side the plastic boxes I have stored in the garage collecting dust. So, give me a cardboard box to keep the price of the handgun a little lower and I am happy. All my gund and mags go in a safe anyways.
I have a couple of nice M&P 2.0 plastic cases that are taking up space in my garage rafters with the rest of my plastic cases.
I'm going to have to get a bigger cardboard box to hold all of my nice plastic cases.
