It seems to me, that a mfg. company could do pretty well making parts for old S&W's. Perhaps even a spin-off company of S&W! If it isn't sold off yet.....they might even use the old machinery. Just an idea....I'm not into machining, or I would do it!! It is a business opportunity waiting to happen.
Look what Dan Wesson created from the original S&W, when he went out on his own. Bob
