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.
