425, yup that would be retail snapon alright, probbly could get it for less than 300 out the back of the truck and that is STILL way to much, the really nice fluke's are around 150 at sears.

The same Fluke (88A) is a $400 unit, easy. The Fluke 87 is still $350 or so. I paid $395 about 7 years ago for my 87. $425 is not bad for the Fluke 88A, and for $150 you will not touch the functionality and reliability of the 88A.

Well OK if you need the 88, my old 73 Mk.III has served me just fine ($90 bucks on sale).  I'm saying that 300-400 bucks is a little extream if the guy just wants to read rpm.
