Big 5 said they are expecting a giant load of Mini 14s just to clear the backlog, and that the prices are now $949 retail. This is up from $749 retail. Big margin expansion for both it looks like. Also the 10/22 takedowns are coming in different colors, in tactical and will be at higher margin.
OK I am not sure what the Big 5 means but as of last week I do know that the prices from RGR and SWHC had not been increased. Now that may be different this week and I hope it is it will only push the shorts into more trouble.
