So I've been talking with GAP about a rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. Basically I want their Thunder Ranch Rifle with a few tweaks. http://www.gaprecision.net/ga-precision-2014-custom-rifles/ga-precision-the-thunder-ranch-rifle.html
6.5 Creedmoor instead of .308
No Badger Scope Rings
Manners Ta Elite Tactical instead of Manners T
The price of the Thunder Ranch Rifle is $3,870 so before I got a quote I was thinking my build would be around $4,300.
$3,870- Thunder Ranch Rifle
Add $175- Threaded Barrel
Minus $150- BO Rings
Add $300- Stock upgrade
GAP quoted me $4,777.00 for my build. I asked why my build was so much more expensive than the numbers I put together and their reason is:
"Pricing is a little different when you get in to the customs. We get a price break on all of the components when we do production builds. Realistically the Thunder Ranch would cost $4300 if we where to build it in the custom work sheet."
Now I'm thinking I could just buy one of the production rifles and eventually get it re-barreled in 6.5 creed but that would kind of defeat the whole purpose of getting a new rifle as I'm wanting to go from .308 to 6.5. Anyone ever had a rifle built by them, and are they worth the $4,777 price tag?
