What happened to all the Swiss 1882 Revolvers?

It used to be that the Swiss 1882 pistols were generally available, both with the Bakelite grips as well as with the later wood grips. I did a quick check on Gunbroker, and the two that I found are over $1,200 (asking, no bids), and none with the Bakelite grips. I have one, but was thinking of possibly adding another if I could find them "cheap" - under $400. Those days must be long gone, I suppose. I must have been snoozing?

Those days are long gone on lot's of stuff. I snoozed on some things as well. Once upon a time you couldn't walk around the corner without tripping on a cheap Lee enfield. Nagant revolvers were like 65 bucks. None of the above are true now, unfortunately. Now I have to look into said swiss pistol, I have no experience with them. Darn you Skans, feeding my habit and whatnot.

I think it was about 10 years ago now I sold my 1916 BSA Lee Enfield for 175.00 with two bayonets. I wish I had it now.
