IT LOOKS AS IF THE MACHINE WILL BE SCRAPPED THE END OF SEPTEMBER, AS THE PRICE OF METAL IS CLOSE TO THE ASKING PRICE OF THE MACHINE AND PATTERNS. IF ANYONE IS OUT THERE AND SERIOUS, NOW WOULD BE THE TIME TO GET SOMETHING GOING.
Gun stock manufacturing company/equipment: eight position carving machine, 150 patterns (mostly Winchester, butt stocks and fore stocks) with templates, boring machine, carving bits, stain & original oil finish formula: $6,500.00. Currently located in Colorado, but can be moved wherever you want to haul it. Priced for machinery and patterns only, no blue sky. There is a demand for semi-finished stocks for old Winchesters and others, and this machinery can satisfy that demand, as well as making any other stock for which patterns can be obtained or made.
In a era of less than ideal economic situations, being a sole proprietor can have its advantages. Here's a business ready to make you one! It just needs old fashioned hard work, ingenuity and a will to succeed. Not computer operated - it takes a real person! Rather than take less money, if we don't sell this stuff, we'll probably just scrap it. That would be a shame and a waste.
Will consider partial trade in guns, U.S. gold and silver coins, and probably some other stuff. Call or email. Contact information is available on the Columbia Precision web page (tang sights). We can also take VISA and MasterCard for an additional 4% fee. Only serious inquiries please.
F.O.B. Northern Colorado.

With two partners, I own Pawnee Sportsmens Center LLC, near Fort Collins, Colorado. We have trap & skeet, sporting clays, rifle/pistol, 1000-yard range, 3-gun, cowboy action shooting, and upland game bird hunting. I have done antique and obsolete firearms repairs as well as restorations and appraisals for 40 years. I primarily deal in Lever Action Winchesters and Colt Single Action Army revolvers. We have some Colt and Winchester parts, and I manufacture the Columbia Precision Tang Peep Sight for lever guns and some single shots. If you Google Columbia Precision, you can get to my direct email
