I wonder if you can even make that complex bolt alone, for that money.
Absolutely. It was designed to be dirt cheap to manufacture. The bolt is much simpler to machine, than it appears.

Besides... you're paying pennies on the dollar for labor, if you have it built in one of the com-bloc facilities that are now scrambling to pump out cars, rifles, ammunition, and everything else the world wants.

...Such as the Volkswagen Tiguan - a.k.a. Skoda Yeti - a.k.a. 50% mark up on a Czech/Kazak-built car that's already profitable in its home countries, before it's exported and "badge engineered" into more costly models for massive profit.
