Did you see the reference for www.fuelpumpdepot.com? They have the best price by far ($100 less) on rebuilt boost pumps. Typical range is $400-$500 depending on model. The link is on the BAC site.
What you saw on the RAPID site typically indicates that they have not sold a kit for a long time; the kit price shown is what it was when the last one sold. If they restock (it's unlikely they really will on this), you can bet that the new price will be much higher than the current pump-alone price.

Subject: [musketeermail] Fuel Boost Pump for 1969 BE23
It appears that my fuel boost pump is dying on me. Unless the hot
weather down in Louisiana was making it act funny, I'd have to switch it
on and off several times for it to register (part of the checklist
before starting the engine). I looked on BAC and saw the information
about the boost pump kit (23-9020-1 S) and the pump by itself
(58-920054-0019). A check with RAPID technical support verified that the
numbers are still valid. Raytheon wants $614.02 for the kit, which
includes the pump (none in stock with November availability) and
$1,064.40 for just the pump (none in stock). Leave it to Raytheon to
charge $450 more for just the pump as versus a kit that includes the
exact same pump!
Any ideas for a boost pump that is STC'd for my mouse (Serial # M-1176)?
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
