I bought an '05 Rocky Comp in August. I am pretty frendly with my lbs and had the clerk show me their price list. For them to buy and have an '05 shipped (in August), it cost them roughly $370. After assembly + $100 profit, I picked it up for 500 greenbacks.
So yes, $425 is a screamin' price, and I would pick one up if I were you. If they don't have any in, see if they could order you one (if specialized still has any inventory left over). The price will likely be comparable, but you won't be able to back out of the sale if they do order it for you. Good luck.
