For more than a year people have been snapping up ARs and semi-automatic rifles of every shape and size. Now the market focus has shifted for one online retailer. This winter, higher-end tactical accessories have been selling fast at Internet parts supplier Midwest Gun Works (MGW).

Top items are tactical upgrades to stock firearms, like the lightweight X-Ring replacement barrels for the popular Ruger 10/22, priced at $250 apiece. MGW owner Rich McGehee says the Ruger 10/22 & AR-22 LT Compensator ($35) is another very popular upgrade.

People who bought up AR’s last year are now looking for top-quality optics and Trijicon ACOG’s and MMR reflective sights are among MGW’s best-selling optics. Orders are very strong for tactical slings; MGW continually reorders Magpul add-ons and magazines.
