Does it come with the knowledge....ie......Do you get the machinists along with the machines?

No, not necessarily. If we go about this correctly, with stimulus money, the ATF investigation will be negated.

There wiil be plenty of million dollar bills involved. All ARFCOMERS will be employed, but, with stimulus money, all will have to join the ARFCOM labor union.

Don't you already have to hold a manufactures licence to be a bidder?
I read about the sale a couple days ago but I haven't been following the news about them,how did they go tits up with seemingly lucrative gov/private contracts?

Add the rifles to the Site Store and keep it all "in the family" so to speak?

We did, but they needed $100K deposit and all we had were $1million bills.
Honestly, if someone has that kind of $ and is looking to get into the industry, this is an excellent opportunity to get a bargain. Not only is there more than enough inventory to cover the purchase price, but there are military/gov contracts that are likely salvageable and the opportunity to get your money back in less than 6 months is more than realistic. Sabre not only manufactures for these contracts and their own sales, but they make products for a large number of major manufacturers including many on this site.


E.D. - You're makin' it sound sweet.  


LaRue could benefit greatly in the purchase of Sabre.


just saying...........


something to think about..........

You would love TN hunting. We have pretty lax gun laws here, and that's coming from this southeastern Texan.

Do you think they take Krugerrands?

$1.5-$2mil? Thats all... I was expecting a mfg. like Sabre would be worth more than that.



Hell, I bought an apartment building back in June for a hair under $1.5mil. and I only financed $250k of it because I already had a pre-approved line of credit at Chase that I decided to take advantage of.

If anyone from this board buys Sabre, I'll move back to TN, show you around, you can hire me (MBA and many years of small business experience) and I'll run the place for you.

That's why it's a great opportunity if someone can get it for that. I suspect there's 2x that in product alone, and probably another 10 in contracts.

 
I would guess that they are just selling machinery and parts that the creditor had a lien on, not any contracts.
