AGI Technical Services Manager Jack Landis was contacted recently by a person representing a retiring gunsmith who needs to get rid of all his tools and equipment.
This is a great opportunity for someone to pick up everything from a lathe to a media blaster at a greatly reduced price. We at Guns and Gunsmiths have not personally inspected these items, nor are we acquainted with the seller, so buyer beware.

“Hi, my name is Teresa Stephens and I am contacting you because of the Gunsmithing programs you work with.
I have a friend who was a gunsmith and has decided to retire. He was moving from his home where his gunsmithing business was located and was not able to take his equipment with him.
I have put together a pdf with photos of most of the items I have for sale. There is much more misc. items that are not listed that will be included with the sale. All of the items are in very good shape, he took pride in the tools that he used for his trade. I am hoping to sell everything together, this is an incredible opportunity for someone who is looking to start their own business to have all the necessary tools at a fraction of the cost if they were to purchase everything piece by piece.
I live in Red Lake Falls, Minnesota and even though this is far from many of the schools I truly feel that for the serious person this could be exactly what they are looking for. I am asking $17,000 for everything, a steal when you look at all of the items listed. I researched what many of the items would sell for new and used and feel that the asking price is very reasonable. I am hoping you could pass this information on to your students or anyone else you might know who could be interested in purchasing these items.
They can contact me by e-mail at email@example.com, my husband Dick at 406-478-3060 or my son Dano at cell: 210-865-8613 or work: 218-253-2133. Dick or Dano would be able to answer more specific questions than I if someone wants more information. I could forward any questions on to them if need be. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Teresa”
