I think Jg sales has gun smith specials. Guns that need some work.

Yeah I checked that out and the only thing I saw what's 5k and that's not the kind of broken guns I'm looking into.
I need to find something that I can post an ad without it being flaged because people are scarred of the word gun or firearm.

Hi. It is a great hobby. It is one of mine too. Nothing like buying an old antique missing a part or two, then restoring it to full function. Get a C&R license. Very little downside other than the record keeping and if you aren't in NY, NJ or someplace like that it lets you cross a state border while shopping for 50+ year old acquisitions. Print up some business cards, your name, broken guns wanted, and your phone # and email address.


gunbroker.com
pawn shops, keep trying, give them your card and tell them you are looking for busted guns.
local gun stores and smiths, ibid.
gun shows. Spread around your cards and keep a few copies of your FFL in your pocket when you go with some cash.

You should start finding them fairly quickly.

Bottom of the barrel, check out Numrich, Sarco and Century Arms, sometimes they have stuff no one else wants.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

It's Curios or Relics and, it's 30$

You'll save that on your first order at MidwayUSA or Brownells.
