How is that "unethical"?
What is so special about "list"?
"List" is an invention of the manufacturer, based on their assumption of what the buyer will pay as a max price. It's not like there's a Price Bible that dictates directly from The Great Beyond that Thou Shalt Not Charge More Than $50 For An AK Magazine.
Some products sell for far over MSRP, "List" price, every day.
Some products don't even HAVE a "List".
