Funny! Its a bizare way of stockkeeping it seems:
Q: Why is an item priced at $9999.99?
A: Because we do not inventory our items, we rely on our suppliers to keep their inventory up to date. When we are notified that an item is very low or completely out of stock, we update our price to $9999.99 to prevent someone from paying for it. Once the item is back in stock, the price will return to normal, or if it is out of stock for good, the item will be removed.
Imagine every ebay reseller would do this... it would become a mess

Ok, here's another one. I probably would have an M4 manix by now if the shipping wasn't a killer then. :D

The slat model is hard to come by, that's why they are priced so high.
You can get a salt for under an hundred, It's a simple supply - demand thing.

Chuck I didn't realize that you lived in such a remote place that the shipping
was so high.

I could see someone getting into an intersting discussion with a credit card
company if the charge somehow was reflected that way on a credit card sell.

Ah the Bentobox jerk, he sells at ridiculous prices and only wants to ship to the US. He made an error in the Blue PM2 preorder so, international buyer signed up massively and he made an exception. But for other items its a no-go. If he wants to make a business selling at premium prices I think he better re-thinks his strategy on international shipping. And communication with Bento also very weak. So far my frustration with this very rude person.

He must be doing so well on exclusives that he can afford to ignore overseas buyers.

I'm pretty sure you could ship it to Mars for that price.
