Paying ten grand to have a rifle built is insane! Scam artist to the ‘inth’ degree!
Actually no its not, take 30% for profit and growth, that leaves you 7 grand to work with , @ $125.00 per hour shop rate and you have 56 hours of work time in building a high quality rifle and sighting system that is always ready to achieve a high level of accuracy in any temperatures. Not an easy task.
If you don't need one that's fine, I don't know anyone that needs a Ferrari but they sell as many of them as they can make.
I doubt any of us will get the whole story, and unless you have a vested interest then its really no one else's business but the buyers !
I wish them the best of luck, and still F~ck the banks !
