Bill McKenna next to a Big Shot Mortar. This puppy shoots bowling balls.We are a small company specializing in firearm restoration for collectors, museums and the motion picture industry. We do everything from cannon barrels and mortar tubes to belt fed Browning's. We can assist you in kit building of browning semi-auto rifles. We will machine internal parts to a Semi fire only configuration, rivet and weld the receiver per BATF compliance, then test fire and Parkerize your gun. Our normal turnaround is approximately seven to ten days, depending on shop load. Large pieces, such as full scale cannons may take several months to complete.
Please contact us for additional information or a quote.

Hey! Why aren't there any prices listed below? Its difficult to specify prices because of several factors. Materials such as steel fluctuates widely on the open market, genuine factory side plates, barrels and otherCLICK for Full Size PHOTO scarce items also are spot market priced and can only be obtained when there for sale. Then too everybody is looking for something a little different, some want showroom condition for display, others want a used look for use as a movie movie prop or motor pool quality. Everything is custom made, nothing is stocked in a warehouse. The photos are a record of guns, cannons, mortars and weasels we have constructed in the past, a little something to get your thoughts going on what we can do. You have Questions, we have Answers.
Call me to discuss your project, to talk about what your looking for, to discuss options, delivery dates and a verbal quote. 
We are a federally licensed Class 7 manufacturer.
