Considering openeing autococker fixing business.

I am thinking about doing a little work on the side. Fixing autocockers, re-timing them, installing parts that people are scared to install. I have a website (domain and hosting) in the works. What do you guys think about this idea? I know this service is out there already, but whats one more going to hurt? Think this will work out in the semi-long run?

if it's mostly local, it might work, but if you are thinking of people shipping their cockers to you for that, then they probably already have a local shop that would do it, or a cocker freak that would love to do it for free.

That's my $.02

...because so many people shoot autocockers these days...

i guess you could try it, but most people have a local shop that will either 1-install parts for free when u buy them, or 2- install parts puchased somewhere else for a small fee, that fee being cheaper than shipping your gun off for an install

People will send their Cocker to WGP before sending it to some dude fixing them in his spare time. You may also want to rename the business to "Cocker Repair" instead of "Cocker fixing".
