Ok guys here it is. Mrs. Blachelder call me the other day and asked about Lanber, so I told her. So now I will tell you.

The company is closed and has been for some time now. It has been going throught the courts and is being liquidated.

Grandpoopa:yes, they will be considered collectors guns when you can not get parts from Spain and start having them made.

Sorry guys, but it doesn't phase me a bit. This is Y2K all over again. During the Y2K scare, people thought their car wouldn't start, their furnace would stop running and their phones would shut off.
Just because the company isn't producing any more guns does that mean mine is going to break now? Is it going to stop firing because the company is closed? Is it a different quality? Nope, it's the same, fine quality gun I owned yesterday and it will fire just the same when I shoot it tomorrow....even though I know the company has closed...

I posted as I wanted to help some of you guys out. Thinking that if you thought you were getting a factory warranty with the new gun purchase and then when you needed work, then you found out it was self-pay. Then some of you would be whinning like always.
Second: While any mechanical item can be repaired, if you know that you were going to keep the gun, to get some of the more common parts that break and have them in your hands. Its usually cheaper and easier to replace with a factory part than to have to have one machined from scratch. Then more cry babbies: Oh, it cost be $300 to repalir a gun I only paid $600 for.

Come on fellows, life is to short for such petty squabbles :!: Just go out and shoot the darn thing. If it does not break, then you are in luck. If it does break, just go buy something else. :wink:

Bachelders has had my gun for the last 3 months (self pay), and they are saying that they may not be a able to fix it due to a dispute with Lanber. This appears to be more than a warranty depot issue, as there would be nothing preventing them from repairing my gun (I'm paying) I just wish they had been upfront about their "not working" on lanbers anymore............

In my mind, personally speaking, if I was paying for the repair, then it should have been completed 3 months ago. Dispute with Lanber or not :!:

I would just get it back and take it to a good gunsmith. :s

Thats my plan, they seem like nice people, I am just confused as to the reasons behind them talking to me, and allowing me to send the gun to them for repair, if they didnt plan on working on these guns anymore. Seems to me they could still profit by fixing Lanbers.....The value of their expertise/parts increased with the closing of the factory...... 8) , Thanks for the reply
