Sales last year on new 2016 Sturmgewehr.com extremely good and now 2017 extremely low. What has happened, is Strum losing popularity, interest, economy or no new gun laws ?

Thanks

The gun market in general is way down in sales since Trump was elected.  Most firearm retailers have seen sales take a huge dip.  It's an industry thing...folks are not as worried about losing their gun rights, and are spending less money on guns and accessories right now.

Everyone stocked up anticipating Hillary's election.

I get "sales" emails for things like .22 ammo from the companies that previously would only sell to the BIG dealers. Big supply, no demand prices should drop but haven't yet.

In 2014 a brick of CCI .22 Standard Velocity at Dick's Sporting goods was $23.00 last time I looked in 2016 it was $50.00 more than double.

Trump being elected is one part of it.  I think another thing to consider is everyone is waiting until ATF gets through the 41F debacle for the wait times to go back down.  IF the HPA goes through, you watch what the suppressor market will do.....it'll be 6-9 months before suppressors are back in stock.
