Wisner’s Inc. Info e-mail
Non Order Related Inquiries: The e-mail address attached to the link shown below is for those of you who want information that can not be found on our website. However please be prepared for possible form letter responses, even some that my direct you back to OUR “Additional Info” or “Other Parts Sources” web link pages. We have tried to provide on our website as much information as possible so you can be the informed public. You apparently have surfed the web & found us, now please use our published resources to further your knowledge before you send us a hasty request. If you do not have the time, then how can you in all fairness ask us to lead you by the hand to information we already have available?
We Try To Share Our
Knowledge, But You Have To Understand A Few Things Also: We do have
a combined vast amount of firearm related knowledge & do try to share it, however do not expect an answer even within a
couple of days. We may have to do research ourselves as some information
is not available at the answering computer location. It is also hard to make a good diagnosis using e-mail or
digital photos. We get many inquiries from “Do It Yourselfers” who know very
little about firearms who are not prepared with even the model of their gun when
they make an inquiry. They may have an old gun that was not that common,
designed, had some internal parts that commonly broke & the manufacturer went
out of business 75 years ago. They happen to be the 10,001 person asking for the broken
part that would be near impossible to reproduce at a reasonable price & they
want more than a “Sorry” response from us when we say we do not know where they
can find it. We are usually the end of the line in their parts search &
since our website has a lot of information, they grasp out at us for the final
We are a small family owned business & since we specialize in making obsolete parts for the trade, we are usually inundated and are always behind making these parts. We however can not find a excess of qualified help living in this small community & can not afford to pay the high wages needed to attract them anyway, as our prices would have to be reflected in this situation. Yes, we very likely could make a replacement for your one broken part, but we simply do not have the time in consideration to the other customers who may be waiting for a back-ordered item.
Sometimes No Parts Will Be Found: There may come a time that if you want your old firearm repaired, you may have to abandon the "Do It Yourself" concept & it is then time to take it to a competent professional gunsmith, who may possibly be able to make repairs to a broken part where a replacement can not be found.
Don't Expect Instant Response: Mail received from this “Info” e-mail address has to take second place to the running the business & actual parts orders or inquiries from paying customers who require additional information related to the parts that we do make & have for sale. As said before, do not expect an answer even within a couple of days. We may have to do research ourselves as some information is not available at the answering computer location.
Don't Expect Original 100 Year Old Factory Parts From Us: If you look at the header of our main pages "Obsolete Reproduction Firearms Parts Manufacturer". Click onto the word Reproduction, this takes you to Webster's dictionary explanation of that word.
Exploded Views: If your needs are for exploded views of firearms that we do not have linked to our parts list page for the particular model, we MAY be able to photo-copy a factory parts list for a fee of $5.00 per model if sent with a self-addressed stamped business envelope. Sorry, we will not scan a page & send it to you free. Our time & the money we have invested in these old books & parts catalogs has to be worth something. One thing also to consider is that many of these old factory parts lists simply had line drawings or a photo of most of the parts laid out in random. This does not help if you are trying to use it for a re-assembly guide.
Also some of the firearms companies used different part numbers for the same part depending on which year their catalog was published.
Broken Parts/Model Identification: If you can send a CLEAR close-up digital picture of the action with the butt-stock removed & or the broken part, this may assist us in identifying what you have.
Please do not take this preceding section as meaning you will automatically get a negative response, but it is an effort to minimize a lot of time consuming 2nd, 3rd & even 4th correspondence.
