Just asking. I see folks offering an older rifle/handgun for twice as much as a year ago. Ammo is still expensive when you can find it (it's getting better).

I am hoping for next year? Anyone have an opinion?

I have a S&W Model 15 Sport with a 16" barrel:
Air gun Trigger Machine gun Shotgun Gun barrel


I have a S&W M&P Shield 9mm that I bought in 2017:

Revolver Trigger Air gun Gun barrel Wood


I am more looking for an older steel and wood gun from the older days. It could be a post-war revolver of a lever-action rifle.

Or an old Winchester lever-action rifle.

I don’t think what was normal a few years ago will ever be normal again. It will cool down and that will be the new normal until the inevitable happens again.
Just saying, I am not hoping for higher prices or lower prices. I am thinking supply/demand. I see many new ammo and gun production factories coming back. It's the new Remington ammo factory getting up to speed (I saw the YouTube video), and the promised Ruger owned Marlin production. Among other possible supplies.

I am not predicting this, but I think the increase of supply of guns and ammo may happen. Most retailers are wait and see, and I don't blame them.

For lever guns, I would hazard a guess that the some things need to shake out with Sturm Ruger buying remnants of Marlin from the Remington collapse. I was shocked at the going price of Marlin lever guns in a recent discussion with a friend.
It was a Marlin, and then Remington bought it and it was considered a Remlin, and now Ruger owns it. It's a Ruglin?

  1. I'll say that I don't own a Winchester lever rifle beyond the 1970's (most are 1970's with three pre-1974).
  2. I don't own a S&W revolver beyond the P&R guns of the 1970's (most are 1950's).
  3. My Marlins (all Bulleye and JM barrel) are all 1970's or older.

While supply may ease up some the pricing is the new normal.
I agree. We need to get with everything at a higher price. It's the same with houses and cars: Most everything is more expensive with the current Biden Inflation. I plan on more price increases going forward. My new $40K truck may cost $80K tomorrow.
