  1. Where does that 2 mil property value figure come from? Is there a balance sheet supporting this or is it the seller’s personal estimation/opinion of what the company’s worth?

    Something ain’t right with that 135 number. Or the other. One of ’em.

  2. Millionaires have been dabbling in oenology, supercars and gunmaking for decades, and they usually lose many of their millions in the process. If you’re a millionaire who likes guns, here’s your golden opportunity to join them!

    Winchester tried to sell their masterpiece Model 21 for decades, but no matter how high they priced it they always lost money on every gun they sold. MIM might lower the unit cost (and then again, it might not) but a Model 21 made from MIM parts won’t quite be a Model 21.

  3. I’ve never understood these things.

    How is it that a double barrel shotgun should cost so much money? The mechanism is dead simple and has been being manufactured for what, hundreds of years?

    So what are you getting when you spend this kind of money? What “R&D” is to be had in developing a “new” one?

    Don’t get me wrong, as a Rolex, Sinn and Omega collector, I do love the anachronistic mechanical bits as much as anyone, but the watch industry is a different beast going against the grain of significantly superior technology in the pursuit of art. If modern firearms were phased plasma rifles in the 40 watt range, I could see the appeal of knurly handed masters still turning out the old timey guns as an art form. How much art can be involved if your squirting plasticized metal into a MIM tool?
