A couple years ago I saw a display of several new Outside hammer Peabody single shot rifles made by a new Providence Tool Co. in Wisconsin. They were beautifully made and cold be had in several of the old blackpowder calibers such as 50-70, 45-70 and even 50 Spencer. Anyone know if they are still in business? They also made excellent #21 Winchester sights.

Last time I checked their website it told me it was under construction, just checked again and it looks like the domain is for sale. Sad, I've a Conn Peabody that I really love and was waiting to see if their guns would take off.

It is a shame-- I saw about four or five and they were beautifully done . Exceptional metal work and superior wood. Tough to compete against the established companies for a limited market. I think there are some videos on YouTube.

Instant Collector's Items, worth more than the originals probably.

Frank, the owner I believe has had some health issues, but I don't believe he's out of business.
 Hopefully Two Bit Charlie will see this and give you some more up to date info

Providence Tool Co. Is still in business, and we're still making the Peabody Rifles and our Model 21 sights. Check our new website, peabodyrifle.com.
