Default New Farquharson action kits available now

I talked to Leonard Bull a retired instructor at TSJC , Trinidad and he has gotten the 1897 Model Westly Richards copy of the Farquharson kits from the casting company. These are investment castings of 8620 steel and will be good for engraving and color hardening. I don't know how much work is involved to complete the action, but anyone wanting to know more should email: [email protected] They will have a web site up shortly and I will let everyone know the location. These project actions will not be for a beginner. I haven't seen the casting, but he says they a very good in quality. Their is a class at TSJC coming up on completing the action with Leonard teaching. If interested contact the NRA summer school classes coordinator at Trinidad State Jr. College. The price of the kit is about $350. It you email make sure the subject is: (Farquharson Action Kits) Wait for the picture to download. Les

For some reason, when I try the email address, the email gets bounced. Do you have another contact for this?

Thanks for keeping me straight. I went back and edited the original post. I hope that the ones trying to make contact will try again. I just heard from the people and they say they are answering question now and hope to have a web site up shortly. That would help keep me from posting bad links. Ha ha

Les,
I really appreciate you bringing this to our attention. You did a fine job. Heck, if the only thing I mess up today is one letter on an email address, I'll be having a banner day!

Thanks again for all the information.
