Welcome to the Badger's Den. This is where we discuss Badger Ridge's solutions to problems, aka Our Products. Some folks are amazed when they find out we have unique tools and products to solve their issues with their old muzzle loaders, or with the solvent trap they are trying to build.... or with that STACK-ON cabinet that needs more scope stand offs, just won't hold that SBR or youth model right, and wastes so much space in the door.
We built up this website through many years of trying different things out. Solving problems one at a time in my hobbies (hunting, shooting, flying, etc), I frequently had to develop something unique, or buy something obscure. So we've made it our mission to simplify those things and bring them forward to the masses.
We are a small, veteran owned, family run business. You and your purchases mean a lot to us. I've been writing this blog for many years now; trying to help folks and promote our products. If you are interested in our solutions, or have an idea for us, please register (so we can send emails out when we release new products), and contact us (either by phone or writing a contact form). We are always developing something, and looking for new ideas and products.
While we are always growing and changing, you could organize what we offer in a few groups:
Muzzle loading items & services: We focus on supporting/improving some older out of production muzzle loaders like the Remington 700 ML/MLS, the Ruger 77/50, the Savage 10 ML-II... and getting multiple others to shoot like they were new, or just be reliable with BlackHorn209 via our vent liner retrofit service. We also have primer pocket shims for those break open guns that leak blow by (which can promote trouble with BlackHorn209... it likes to be fully sealed up).
3D printed custom solutions: Organizers for the Doors of STACK-ON gun cabinets. Scope Stand Off's and barrel rests for STACK-ON gun cabinets.
While 2019 was full of good, challenging, growth (We moved from Hampton Roads VA, to the Thumb of Michigan... sorta back home for me), in 2020 we developed 3D printed solutions, and have been working on a new prototype for a sealed breech solution on the Austin & Halleck Inline muzzle loaders, along with launching the Breech plug wrench and E-Z tool system for the Savage 10 ML-II, and we are now expanding our business via a new building.
We look forward to helping you in 2021. With the new year we are instituting some small changes:
US Orders under $50 will no longer receive free shipping. All items are treated alike (ie there really isn't any 'add on items' any longer; just items. Add or subtract them as you like. If you buy more than $50, you will be offered free shipping (to the US/AK/PR/HI). We have adjusted prices accordingly on the items under $50 that used to ship free. This is both an adjustment to counter the ever increasing costs of shipping, and to simplify the back end that used to calculate what was an add on item and what shipped for free.
Our Canadian customers will notice we removed the flat rate shipping to Canada. Canadians still have to pay to ship their orders, but the system should be able to calculate the exact cost, and offer you options. Some will save, but most will pay more. With the old flat rate to Canada system we ate a lot of shipping fees sending stuff to Canada, especially as the postage rates were changed. We cannot afford to pay any longer, and this seems like the fairest solution (and it simplifies the back end of our webstore as well).
New Products are coming!
Please register and accept emails as we will send out announcements when new items are ready... but here's what we are planning:
We hope to be offering our own version of the VS-794 spring, except it will be made in stainless steel and have a slightly lower spring rate. More to follow later on that one. Check our gun cleaning products often if you are interested (besides registering for our emails).
Once we get the new workshop finished and up and running we hope to be able to insource more things and produce many more widgets we have up our sleeves. Stand by for more announcements there.
Thank you for your patronage! You mean a lot us!
