Production Machinery: For Sale & Wanted Updated 18th April 2017
Click on Green links below for seperate detailed pages.
Due to the nature of our Small Arms Ammunition, smallarms production and other Aviation and Industrial production business we also buy and sell western Standard & Eastern Standard ammunition production and loading and metallic link machinery and other machinery to accomplish new projects & programs, increase production and sometimes support other manufacturers that need other machinery or also buy ammunition components from our company on an OEM basis. Some manufacturers see other ammunition producers and they see a competitor. We see a business opportunity as no one ultimately dominates the entire market unless one is willing to work 36 hours a day, 8 days per week. We’ve already "done the math" and it just doesn’t "compute".
Some of the machinery we have in stock or sale, subject to prior sale. We also buy or sell/exchange component production and loading and metallic link machinery as well; primarily from 5.56mm/.223 cal to 12.7 x 99 & 12.7 x 108mm in addition to some larger calibers including 40mm low, medium & high velocity grenades.
Special Note as of July 2016
We can offer you specific machinery that we have in excess as noted. We can also keep you in mind for specific machinery needs of yours as they become available
As far as setting up complete lines for production from new, rebuilt or overhauled machinery, this as a request is an extensive multi-month undertaking costing tens of thousands of dollars in up front overhead on our part. We do not engage in bids, hoping to sell machinery to new customers; expending 10s of 1000s of dollars in time and money in the process. Usually, we only offer complete ammunition production lines under the circumstances of an ongoing, already mutually profitable relationship in which we are supporting the expansion of long term business colleagues and partners. In some cases we may start by selling ammunition components, as available. Investing this sort of time and resources outside of that picture is impractical and financially unprofitable for us. Please keep in mind that we are first and foremost in the ammunition production business, and the machinery is only a "break even" side line and sometimes money losing process as a result of being in the ammunition production business for the last 32+ years. This is part of the reason why we only under take it on a case by case basis with the framework of ongoing business relationship.
We hope this helps to give you a better idea of what we do and the parameters in which we are able to do it
