What did it look like when you re-threaded it? Did you re-crown also?One other thing to keep in mind is that not everyone wants to wait to have a rifle built. With the wait times at gunsmiths can be kinda crazy. Good that they are busy.
Also one of the reasons I got into doing my own was the quality of work!!!!!
I have taken guns apart that have been done by some of the best gunsmiths in our area. Some have been outstanding work and quality. And others have been unbelievable bad. Lots of out of spec tenons, diameter and length.
I am very anal in what I do and being a tradesman for my whole life there are very few I trust to do any work for me.
Here is one example, young guy asked me if I could install a different brake on his gun. Had to re thread the muzzle.
This was the way I got it, some one actually crowned it like this and sent it to the guy! So for me it isn’t so much about the cost of tooling. Or tools.
