TV show American guns I'm a bit turned off

I just got cable so I'm just seeing this show for the first time.
The first thing I noticed is the prices are astronomical! 3500$
For a rebarrel? Anyone else seen this show? Think the prices
Are a bit high?

    It's over-dramatized just like Sons of Guns and other shows, but it's more entertaining than a lot of the programming. I'm gonna guess that you're a little more firearms savvy than their average viewer.

    Hey... How about that CNC Mill? I gotta get one of those. Alas... Not only won't it fit in my garage... I'd have to sell the house.

    Regarding the high prices.... Someone's gotta pay for the helicopter fuel, maintenance, pilot, etc... to run between the shop, range, and making deals.

    ...and, that wife and daughter look pretty high maintenance too

    ;-)

    I've seen the show for a couple of months now off and on. The prices are beyond ridiculous. These guys are NOT D'arcy Echols.

    When I listened to some of the prices for their "custom" guns I said to myself, either this is inflated for TV or each and every one of their customers is as dumb as they come to pay such prices for what I perceive to be run-of-the-mill in house gunsmiths.

    If they have customers willing to fork out 7 house payments on what they do, then they deserve to be robbed blind.

    That surgical plastic isn't cheap...thus why the guns cost so much to build. Gotta be about 15lbs a set.

    You gotta pay so he can play
