Just check that the price quoted doesn't include the Value Added Tax that we in Britain have to pay. You in the U.S. will have this tax deducted and that is about a 20% discount. Although I guess you might have some sort of import tax to pay. Note also that if made by someone else it won't have Holland & Holland on the top rib or else it would be considered a forgery intending to deceive. The work will probably be outsourced anyway to the same firm in Birmingham that another top London Gunmaker would use and have his name put on. Such are the vagaries of the British Gun Trade.

These are consumer goods that are luxury products. The makers/sellers should offer up the fruits of their labour at any price the market will bear. Good for H&H if someone will pay them $45,000 usd for a replacement set of barrels. Or $150,000 for a new gun. It's called the free market and if they want to continue in business and no one is buying at those prices, my guess is they will come down. In the mean time, more power to them.

Nice gun spoiled by a poorly thought-out grip cap. At least it can be replaced with something more reasonable.

I think Parabola's estimate is on the money. Ten years ago I was looking to order a Spanish sxs from the factory, with an extra set of barrels. The premium for that extra set of barrels was 35% of the price of the shotgun itself.
