An old saying I remember from my youth, “if you have to ask how much, you can’t afford it.” Another was, “ we don’t discuss that.”;13008770 said:I posted this here because I thought that there might be those interested in seeing it, no other reason or motive. Sadly, there is always someone who always has to know "how much". There is a saying about having to ask how much.
1- Discussing prices distracts from the work itself.
2- I'm not looking for business.
3- Upon what do you base your estimate of the size of the custom gun market?
Since you seem to have a need to know, this particular job consumed 60 hours for a total 5200 dollars.
I'm a gunsmith myself, and I have built custom revolvers for decades. My comments are about building one for a customer... Seems like a strange request from a customer.;13013434 said:
The second-guessing is actually coming from a pretty tiny minority of the posters in this thread. Maybe we (myself included) should just stop giving them outsize attention.You build something like this amazing Smython because you can envision it, clearly have the talent to do it and you want to see it in the "flesh", a stunning working example of "what if".
I am stunned at all of the second guessing going on here. This is something to be appreciated and admired rather than questioned.
A tip of the cap to you Sir and thank you for sharing it for others to appreciate. I get it!
