An Important Announcement from Larry Seecamp


A note from Larry Seecamp:

"I am pleased to announce that Whalley Precision in Massachusetts is taking over production of the Seecamp line of LWS pistols. These pistols will continue to be produced under the Seecamp name. I plan to stay as involved as circumstances dictate. John Whalley and his brother Dave have owned LWS pistols for some twenty years. Over that period, John has become a valued friend. I only recently met Dave.  The Whalley brothers are extremely talented, intelligent, and every bit as committed to quality as my father and I have been. I couldn't ask for a better arrangement in carrying on the company tradition. Whalley Precision also has a trained manufacturing staff that we at Seecamp never had. They have the capability of producing a product as good as we ever did and with greater consistency and better service. As mentioned, I intend staying involved. The communication among those involved has been excellent.

Customers and friends who have called us in the last year know we have been experiencing problems trying to recover from the recent loss of several decades of employees. Those employees all learned or perfected their craft here. We've never hired a machinist, tool maker, or anyone with the type of manufacturing background that Whalley employees have. Unfortunately, core employees here in Milford retired almost simultaneously and for a variety of reasons younger employees failed to fill their shoes.

This move has all the signs of being an unforeseen blessing. Not having any children, I’ve often wondered what would happen once I could no longer be around to monitor production. I think Whalley Precision is the answer.

Best, 

Larry"


A note from John & Dave Whalley:

"Here at Whalley Precision we look forward to continuing Larry’s longstanding tradition of quality handcrafted firearms and outstanding customer service. We plan to work closely with him to continue his legacy and we ask everyone for a bit of patience during the manufacturing transition. We will get things up and running as quickly as possible, but when it comes to craftsmanship and personal protection there can be no compromise."
