I think you could make money as long as you target your audience. If you want to target the 35 year old and younger market, than take beat up "Tactical" type .22's, and refinish those, that have good bore's, and just need a little TLC.

If you want to restore the classics, i.e. rifles like Win 52, Marlin 39, Browning SA-22, appeal to the old geezers (like myself 54 years old), and find rifles again that don't need much in parts, but some TLC. I'm amazed at how many rifles I see that just need a little elbow grease, some stock sanding/Lacquer, and some light removal of surface rust, and you have a Gem.

Just like guys who take older cars and add a little elbow grease, you could make a little walking around money.
