The price is reasonable.

This looks like the EXCELLENT N-connector made by Andros Mfg in upstate NY. I LOVE this connector -- easy to install, and it solves the migration problem. <> They fit RG8/213 and Commscope 3227 (#10 solid copper center, shield like LMR400) quite nicely. You solder both center and shield to one piece, then screw the retaining shell onto it.

They are not easy to buy though -- I called all the dealers listed on the company's website, and the only one who actually sold them (WB0W) tried to sell me a Chinese knockoff instead. But they did have some Andros connectors in stock, and I bought a dozen or so for my parts stock.
