How much would you expect to pay to get a early 1900's mauser rifle cut back to 18" and a muzzle thread done?.
I have just had this done and was a bit suprised when i got sent the invoice yesterday.its nore than double ive ever had to pay any other gunsmith.
Interested in others thoughts on the matter. Picking up rifle on friday.

$50
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

You clearly failed to say you didn't want the custom engraving/ platinum plating package

$80 ish  and the BLR was between hundy and 2 hundy as it had to be done by hand as barrel cant be seperated from barrel...threaded caps are less than $20 and if really tight a std thread nut will work just as good Smiley
