Backlog as of 12/31/12 is $427.1 million (1.5M units) -
Backlog numbers are disclosed in the Company's 10K. Visit the SEC's website to see for yourself. Backlog in both dollars and units at 12/31/2012 is $427.1M and 1.5M, respectively. This represents a more than 435% increase over the backlog at 12/31/2011. Very good news considering there should be a seasonal spike in orders during Q1. Expect the backlog at Q1 to be even more impressive. SWHC's Q3 release should paint a more complete picture of the post Obama re-election sales surge as the SWHC quarter will include January 2013 .
Yall just put the final nail in shorties coffin. They just going to beat out of Ruger as quick as possible before Ruger drops another surprise on them. Like a $3 dividend. As I review Remington and marlin product lines, there is too much duplication for Ruger to make an effective acquisition. Better to let some stupid fund buy Remington or marlin, pay too much for them and then mis-manage them into the ground.
