But you won't regret a penny of it. Building custom rifles isn't about cost efficiency or best bang for the buck, it's a different animal entirely. I have a couple rifles that I've sunk over $5000 into, I could have bought 10 Rem 700 ADL's for the price of those single rifles. But I like the ONE custom rifle a lot better than I would have liked the 10 cheap ones.It's a slippery slope going for the best varmint rifle. Eventually you find you have spent enough customizing that you could have bought three or four new rifles.
