N.B. This machine has just been sold but we maintain the page for other machines coming in from time to time, and also for the technical & production interest of our customers. An overhauled machine is expected to be listed shortly.


We had one Waterbury Farrell .50 caliber Browning in-line loading machine that can be used or tooled down to produce other calibers as well such as .338 Lapua or other similar calibers. We were going to overhaul it for another caliber but have been too busy on other projects and our other .50 caliber machinery is mostly French Manurhin made.

If you were interested in overhauling the machinery yourself, or wish to take advantage of the offers that we have received these can provide an option to convert this machine to another magnum caliber and/or bring the machine back to "as new" condition.


One (1) Waterbury - Farrell .50 caliber in-line loading machine, 1940's - 1950's production, U.S. made and in need of an overhaul.


Price: $40,000.00 USD We are also willing to offer you the overhaul and conversion quote given to us at cost without any additional profit.

Speed: This is the theoretical production and practical production is usually around 80% of that or 2,800 rounds per shift.


Other Terms and Conditions:
