    Default Any military gunsmiths in the Cedar Rapids Iowa vicinity?

    Looking for someone that might have military gun knowledge that could identify what I have sitting in my shop
    If it can be moved, I’d be willing to work a percentage agreement
    Gun drills,reamers, deep hole cutter heads over 2”, tooling and parts to who knows what
    Colt, 30/0, 50 caliber machine gun, are marked on some of the tooling
    A lot of tooling that was used to cut threads both internal and external in big gun shells on a thread milling type lathe, before CNC thread milling.
    Good size what might be recoils and a whole lot more
    All of this came from the rock island arsenal about 8 years ago

    Yep, learned quite a bit in the Army before retiring. We repaired all kinds of stuff. Give me a call or e-mail.
