This is all retail and im sure could be done wholesale if you were volume...
Id sell them all day long if I could...... who wants to order one ???? LOL
$7000 seems like a lot until you start really putting it together.
If resale is important, you should steer clear of anything but a Sako TRG. I'd go $3200 for a 300 Winchester Sako TRG and $2800 for a Schmidt Bender. Spend $1000 on ammo, a shooting class, or learning how to hand load.
The problem with custom rifles
is that they are built to one person's perspective. As you claim to be new to this concept, maybe a Remington M700 Sendaro or Police rifle, at $1000, and if it doesn't shoot another $1000 worth of barrel and gunsmithing work would be a cheaper alternative.
