    Default building guns for fun & profit

    We are finishing up a run of 10 1919's from the kits we got from the group buy we ran last month. we built 4 customers kits that we finished and shipped last week and these are ours that we will be offering for sale. I came in today and got stared about 8:30 and we finished up around 8: pm. there is about another 8 hours work left to blast and park all the small parts and do the final assembly.

    these will be some nice guns and will be hard to see them go out the door!!

    a far cry from the dirty, greasy pile of parts they started out as!!

    We charge $500.00 labor for a build, that includes total tear down, blasting, detailing and prepping the parts for assembly, machining the internals, building the receiver, blasting and parkerizing then final assembly. there is about 14 hours total labor involved.

    base price on these is $1,250.00 all have chrome trunnions, we are building one or two as dual caliber guns and one with spade grips, we haven't figured the pricing on these yet.

    it makes them wear resistant, it is harder than the base metal. they are also not to common.

    Wow, they look great. Have always wanted one. Almost got one once then read something about spacing. It was enough to stop me from buying one about a year ago. But....I may just have to bite the bullet and do it (that is purchase and learn about spacing). LOOKS GREAT!!
