Dag Evert's "American Classic"

As mentioned on the forum, heres a picture I took some time back, with natural winter daylight.
A 2100, and a 1377, both guns have been recrowned, and had their trigger parts shimmed for play,
contact surfaces stoned, and trigger springs somewhat reduced within safe limits.
The 2100 has had its barrel shimmed with tape to remove play.
Both guns give great accuracy for the money if they are given good pellets!
The combination of pellets and guns in the picture represents something close to my boyhood dreams:-)

Response to not to throw gas on the fire

I don't know what Tim's barrels cost him, but the Lothar / Walther barrels are $110.00 + shipping. The L/W then has to be machined for whatever purpose, and then has to be finished ( as in bluing ) .
Tim's price is very good.
And from the experience I had this last weekend, got to shoot a USFT, they are very good barrels indeed.

All I was saying, was that in my own anecdotal experience, the local gunsmith would charge $35 an hour. It takes a bit less then an hour to machine a barrel, both ends and even a reduction in diameter if called for.

As for me, the cost to have me machine and finish a barrel for that particular pistol would be in the $50 range, not including the cost of barrel, not including installation or testing.
Again, a different business set up then the one charging $35, and much different then the machine shop that would charge much, much more.
