Stock, bedding kit, camo paint....$375+/-

Barrel from benchmark #7 contour fluted barrel threaded...$600 +/-

The action was from my old savage rifle and so was the 20MOA base and the vortex viper scope.

But now I have all of the tools to do another and I am already dreaming up the next two or three projects
Thanks for the info. You are not a lot higher in price than a custom now, and you can keep turning out your own rifles. Pretty sweet!
