That's because since the tapered/650b/15mm revolutions kicked off, DJ riders have been buying up and burning through all these old stock forks. There were a solid few glory years where 26" forks with 1-1/8" steerers and 20mm axles were plentiful and dirt cheap on the used market, and since those are the specs 90% of DJ bikes use...we took advantage. Now the pendulum has swung in the other direction, and while prices are still low, availability is dwindling. I used to be able to buy an immaculate 36 Float that had lived life on the front of of an all-mtn bike for pennies on the dollar, and I knew that the seals, bushings, topout springs, and CSU were probably all in great condition. Not so much anymore.
