Colt Government Models...Why so high?

Back in the middle and late 90's the dealer cost on a 1991A1 was $359...now the dealer cost on one is $605! Why? This the most basic pistol they make; I think it even has a plastic trigger! Matte finish, cheap plastic stocks, and crude sights...which are all fine if priced accordingly...I actually like the gun, a lot, but it is ridiculously overpriced! It seems like Colt has pretty much abandoned the shooting public...the items that they still make for us are so overpriced that most working class folks can't afford them. No more Anacondas, no more King Cobras, no more Pythons, no more .380's, etc.. Why? These were good guns and people liked them. I myself love the Government model .45, as well as the other firearms listed above. They just don't seem to be a very well-run company, especially when it comes to items for the shooting public. How do you folks feel about these issues? Thanks.
