Re: Rifle builder that lets you build you're own rifle

i sorry but why would you send a couple grand on a rifle then spend another grand to put it to gether.

If you want to biuld a rifle then fine build a semi custom with a factory action like savage or Rim. If you want a full custom then let the pros do there job thats what they do for a living and feed there familes with.

    If that's the kind of rifle you want that's fine but that isn't the kind of rifle that is being discussed. The rifles being discussed take about $3000 for parts. Only certain kinds of parts can be used. If you want to build it yourself it's $2250 labor. If you don't want to build it yourself it's $1250 labor. I believe that extra $1000 does include a cabin for a week.

    LL! I didn't mean no insult other than simply agree with submoa and that Robert Gradous is a pro.

    The gunsmithing class is available for an additional $1,000.00 over the cost of any of the standard rifles I offer on this website

    that makes the cheapest gun you can build $4200 bucks and thats the light tactical with no options :-{

    if i was going to spend that much i would want the pro to build it not me.

    not saying i cant do it but thats is why you are paying that much for the rifle
