Why are SD mags so Pricey?

A buddy of mine just told me that he bought a Smith and Wesson SD 40 over the weekend. He really liked the feel of it and tells me it shoots great.

Conversation proceeded until he notified me that right after he bought it, he looked into adding to the 2 magazines it came with only to find out that they were about $35-40 new.

Now I'm no expert on magazines, but my M&P mags are only $21. What the heck is Smith and Wesson thinking offering an inexpensive alternative to their top service line pistols and nearly doubling the price of the magazines? Sure sounds counterintuitive to me.

I don't get it. And mine are even made by Mec-Gar.

Anyone have any enlightenment?
