Navy Arms?
« on: October 01, 2019, 08:07:53 am »
I just attempted to go to Navy Arms web site, and it is no longer there.  Has Navy Arms gone out of business?  They make/made a very nice 1873.

I don't personally know if Navy Arms has finally gone Dodo.  However, many many many years ago Val Forgett was responsible for having Henry Rifles manufactured.  Navy was never a manufacture of 1873 rifles.  Just an importer of Uberti rifles.

Seems only Old West Scrounger is still up...all three are or were Val Forgett III   ( son and heir to Val Forgett II Navy Arms/ Replica Arms founder )

Neither the Navy Arms or Gibbs Rifle Co. sites seem to work.... NAVY ARMS COMPANY
in  Martinsburg, West Virginia were  working with Winchester and Turnbull Manufacturing Co. on the Winchesters  by Miroku
 How that is working out now I don't know..... :-\



when planets align...do the deal !

I was perusing my CAS Bookmarks tother day.  The disappearance of Navy and Gibbs gave me reason to be curious.  I was amazed at the number of Sutlers whom no longer Suttle.  POOF and into the Sunset.  Where have all the flowers gone??

Thanks for the news, Abiline.  I'd like to see the company survive.  They don't mention Turnbull in the description of their '73.  I wonder if that relationship still exists.
