Aaron;

That double rifle is a real jewel. A really perfect set up for moderate range quick shooting and the straight stock is just the ticket for that. The barrel taper is done very well; and I cannot imagine that the shooter will even notices any recoil the way you have the barrels weighed and profiled. Barrel profile is very important in double rifle regulation and it is evident that you understand that.

Do I see a fold up/down front sight for night shooting?

Kindest Regards;

Stephen Howell

Aaron,
Would you mind, since the owner is anonymous, telling us the total cost of this job, minus the donor gun, which should be somewhere in the $1500-$2000 range? Thanks.

Cost to do a conversion starts at $4500 total plus tax if applicable with a 50% deposit due at beginning, this price doesn’t include the donor gun. My current backlog is around 2yrs.

You are correct, fold up/down front sight.

Pretty close to my guess. Shame the Ugartechea had such plain wood.

Aaron,
Have you chronographed that load from those 16 1/4" barrels? I'm thinking they will produce a velocity in the 1700-1800 fps range. Just a w.a.g.,
but here's a BB 330 gr. load @ 1400 fps from a 5.5" barrel...

Yeah John, pretty darned close, only $2,500 to $3,000 off on your $1500-$2,000 guess. Yep, real, real close. Sounds expensive to me, but definitely unique if a guy has a great need for such gun.

You're trying to pick a fight, buzz. Your sarcasm verifies it.

John estimated the cost of the donor gun to be in the $1500-2000 range. Aaron said the cost of the conversion, which doesn't include the cost of the donor gun, to start at the $4500 range.Where is the rub, that you see? No problem for me to understand the question and answer. Slow down a minute and read a little closer. You might not embarrass yourself.

Not trying to pick a fight, but on re-reading John’s post, I think you are right. He was quoting the cost of original gun at $1500-2000. My bad. Conversion seems like a ton of work but expensive.

No problem, I misread posts often myself.

Best to you, SRH
