When the prices would have been calculated (around the turn of the year) the $ was very strong against the which will have effected it to an extent. Also the cost for manufacturing anything is high at the minute as things are slower and production costs have risen - Even in China/Japan. Currency has a huge effect on everything we buy especially if it's imported - Look at how much Walthers and Steyrs have gone up in the past year!

But other than that, they're in business to make money with things the way they are they'll have forecast fewer sales so increased the margins to make the same profit and keep things afloat.
