    Have an extra $25,000

    A local guy here is selling his set up. No affiliation with this guy but I have to admit I wasn't prepared to se 25k when I looked at his ad. Wow...


    I have the following casting setup for sale:

    Two Magma Engineering Mark V/VI Bullet Masters
    These commercial grade machines will cast 4000 pieces per hour in just about any caliber/bullet type you want; assuming you have molds for them. Both these machines have been upgraded to the latest pneumatic functions (knockers, pour, etc). You will need 220/230V AC Power and 90 psi of air to make these run.

    Magma Master Caster
    This is a manual bullet caster that uses the same molds as the bullet master. 110V power and no air needed. This particular machine was converted to automatic by the previous owner, but the automatic functions no longer seem to work. It can probably be made to work with some tinkering, but I haven't had the time.

    Magma Lube Master
    This automatic machine will lube and size your cast bullets at a rate of 6000 an hour. It includes the M-A auto feeding system, and multiple size dies needed to size whatever bullet you have cast. Also have many lube sticks included. Requires a 120V supply and shop air around 60psi.

    Molds:
    I have 24 sets of 8 dual cavity molds in all common handgun calibers. I also have 3 individual molds in .45 (for .45-70 style loads) at 350gr, 400gr and 450gr.
    I will put up a list of all the individual molds types and weights later this evening, but believe me, it is just about as exhaustive as you would want.

    Alloy:
    I have 1 ton (2000 pounds) and change of the standard, hard cast bullet allow (aka the 92% lead/6 antimony /2 tin). Right now at rotometals, price per pound is $2.28, if you buy a ton. That makes this $4560.

    The machines are in working order; I will show you some basic information to point out some tips, but these machines should really be used by somebody with some mechanical aptitude.
    Pictures will be added in the next few days.

    Now, if you went out and bought this stuff from Magma, plus the allow, you would spend something just shy of $40,000.

    You will get all this and we will deliver it for $25,000. We will also entertain serious offers as well.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal to me if you need the equipment. He is selling it for about 38% off the new price and would guess since he will "entertain" serious offers bet he would take $20,000.

    Would you please post a link to the ad.

    That's well over $10,000.00 worth of molds...his asking price is not out of line.

    Sorry, I haven't checked the forums for a few days. I do not know this person but he posted this ad on a local gun trading forum here in VA.

Both these machines have been upgraded to the latest pneumatic functions (knockers, pour, etc). You will need 220/230V single phase AC Power and 90 psi of air to make these run.

    There is also miscellaneous tools, extras, parts, etc that goes with the machines.

    This is a package deal; we are not going to part this out.

    He's basically selling a business. This price is not out of line. Don't buy unless you want to go into business - and have thought through all the issues and problems doing the same!

    The link doesn't take me to an ad. Has it been withdrawn?

    There is only one way of compromising the on Second Amendment. That is when Liberals call for Conservatives to compromise. What they really mean "give up just a little more of your rights just this once"- every time they call for compromise. Molon Labe!

    considering the OP was over a year ago I doubt its available
    They call it "common sense". Why is it so uncommon?
