(New Haven-WTNH, Mar. 21, 2006 10:55 PM) _ There is word tonight that gunmaker Smith and Wesson may have its sites set on the city's Winchester Arms plant.

The New Haven Register is reporting tonight that Smith and Wesson is showing interest in the US Repeating Arms factory.

A spokesperson for Mayor John DeStefano confirms with News Channel 8 that Smith and Wesson executives will be in the city this weekend to tour the facility and that the city has been talking with the gunmaker for weeks now.

The city says Smith and Wesson is considered one of the more serious companies showing interest in Winchester.

That factory is set to close at the end of the month, taking with it close to 200 local jobs.
