Group Purchase for Magazine Brushes!!!

I was fortunate to have several very good condition Star/Wetter magazine brushes and to find a company who could reproduce them. (yes they are pricey)

I’ve set up an item on my online store for $0 to gauge interest. The amount of total brushes ordered will determine the price each. Please follow the link below and fill out an order for how many brushes you think you would like. After I have an idea of how many brushes everyone is interested I’ll enter the price and shipping costs and email everyone to place a real order.

The total quantity of all orders will determine the actual price per brush as follows. Prices do not include shipping

25 - 49: $46.00 each
50 - 99: $36.00 each

Did this ever go anywhere? I just ordered a box of 1-row brass brushes from Gordon and thought to ask Dave Seat if he’d ever considered having Gordon do a make of magazine brushes. He pointed my to Lammy.

I got no interest from anyone at all.

Gordon Brush should still have all the specs I sent them for the magazine brushes. Thing is it’s costly to have them set up for a custom brush, so it’s not really feasible for me to order some by myself.

On the basis that, * Necessity is the Mother of invention* is it just possible that Shotgun cleaning kit will do the job.?

As good if not better. 12 Gauge kit from Wall Mart 1/2 the price as above.???
