    I was wondering if there was a published list, or directory if you will, of ffl's w/contact info who set up shop in the mill who are available for transfers. I know of one for sure but they are not always available in the time of need. just wondering aloud is all. maybe we could get a sticky?

    I second that. I would love to understand what services they provide. Are they more custom machining, do they sell accessories, have stock

    I recommend Frontier Armory. I picked up on a Saturday and I think he made a special trip just for me. He offered to do a little free gunsmithing later as well. Can't beat that.

    He's RJM95 here.

    Please, I got lost there a few weeks ago on a Sunday wandering around. Went in from the front door and went up, then down, then sideways, and I think upside down too. It was a maze to me.

    I know, it's not easy. The mill was built starting about 1900 or sooner. There are about 77 tenant spaces in about 100,000 sf gross area. Since it's on a hill, and the way it was added onto over the years, some areas are one floor, two floors, three floors or four floors. The FFL tenants are located 18 in one room, 12 in another room and the rest spread out throughout the building. To find the FFL tenants see my post on Littleton FFLs. If you get lost, feel free to call me at my office in the mill 978-486-8975 or at home 978-273-9177 and we'll send out a search party. Jack.

    Damn Jack, you've built an empire! I've been there 1/2 dozen times or so myself. Didn't you once post that either the ATF or the Littleton police were mad at you for having so many FFLs in one place?.

    You have to go down in the basement to see the boilers, they're a work of art.

    Are all those FFL's by appointment only or do some have regular hours?

    The Littleton PD were bent out of shape for a while for having to issue the state licenses. Lots of delays. One of the FFL tenants who is good at dealing with this got the COP spanked by the town administrator and he got his shit together. Boston ATF likes us. They have approved 40+ guys no problem. Jack.

    I'm just the landlord and don't know their hours. They all show phone numbers on the list. Jack.

    They are oldies but goodies. Were originally coal fired and later converted to oil and then to gas. The one on the right produces steam to heat the whole mill. The one on the left was used to run a steam turbine to generate electricity before town electric was available and is no longer in service, but on standby should the right one suffer a failure. The water is PH controlled with chemicals to extend the tube life and it has needed only one partial tube change in the 21 years that I've been managing the mill. That stuff was really built to last. Each year it gets opened up and inspected by the state. Jack.
