Canadian dollar drop and airsoft prices

I have had many inquiries as have other retailers as to the effect on the Canadian dollar drop and the effect on Airsoft prices this side of the border.

Quite simply the dollar is now worth about 73 cents (average people never get the posted rate) a year ago the dollar was at par. Prices for all GBB's / and AEG's are going up, likely by about 20-25%. What does the future hold, well as long as the oil is low the Canadian dollar is staying low.

Most retailer pay U.S. street prices for AEG's: An AEG that costs $400 U.S. is now over $550.00 Canadian, without any Mark up or shipping costs whatsoever. Prices are still better than years ago, but the trend is certainly for higher prices.
