Default Why do 2 1/2 686s cost more than 4 or 6 inch barrels ?

Went into a gun shop last week they had 3 686s there, the 6 and 4 inch were both priced at 699 and the 2 1/2 inch was 750, i couldnt beleive it. Doesnt it cost more to make a longer barrel handgun ? I thought it was a priceing mistake, so i asked the clerk about it. He told me that less 2 1/2 inch barrels are sold so they cost more, doesnt make sence to me i think hes full of it. Any opinions ?

Supply & Demand sets the price.
