No, this does not hold true for Airsoft. Economies of scale refers to production, and last I checked most guns are imported not produced in Canada. Our high prices come from our tough Airsoft import laws and basic supply and demand. Retailers who go through the trouble to acquire or import guns will want to make a nice profit and the fact that there are very few retailers prices are pushed up.
