It's normally a cold day in Hell when I say something nice about the Brits. However, this insult is totally unjustified. For bravery they are second to none. The evacuation at Dunkirk was a miracle of courage and organization. Yes they got lucky in that the Germans didn't press their assault all the way for some unknown reason. Whatever the Germans did or didn't do the Brits would have continued to carry on regardless. There have been times when I hated their guts but never have doubted their courage and fortitude in adversity.

Just out of curiosity and I don't mean to derail the thread, but what is your specific beef with the Brits? All of them?

Kinda curious.

Yeah, I was sort of wondering what the beef was too. I can understand why our founding fathers had a beef with the British, but now the Brits are our BEST of allies. Plus, they make the BEST guns too!!


Socialism is almost the worst.

Gents,

I hope these images can help to refocus the question placed regarding the cost of stocking a sidelock action. This is precisely a case of a Spanish SLE (Sarasqueta 7E model) that I described in another thread last month. IMO it is perfectly possible to obtain a rather high degree of finish at affordable prices outside the US or the UK/Northern Europe. In this case I was not very demanding with Mario Zavala, but I am sure that he would had gone the extra mile upon request. The agregate price for that stock plus fore-end (wood not included) was US$850.




Regards,

I'd say the wood work is befitting of the lock work.

I agree with Joe 100% and I still think $4,200 is very reasonable for a sidelock especially given the quality of the work. Get it stocked here then if something needs to be changed then it won't be a hassle to get in touch with the re-stocker. Plus didn't we just have this big argument over work being sent overseas by all those corporate fatcats because it's cheaper?

Like my signature says......


The taste of poor quality lingers long after the cheap price is forgotten.........

CJO, very similar thought that the wonderful craftsman, Fred Adolph, had in the early 1900s. His thought was---------

"The Quality Is Always Remembered, When The Price Is Forgotten"

Very true.

Joe et al.,

exactly this is my point, "horses for courses", the original question by Little Creek even was refered to restocking an AYA gun. Some guys like to drive ferraris while living in smelly huts, others prefer renaissance palaces and shoot cheap semi-autos. All depends on your Utility Curve.
