I see and cabelas has that type of customer? I don't know why would someone spend that or 10 times that to say look at it..isn't it lovely? Firearms are tools meant to be used imo. That is just gratuitous ego stroking, eh but a fool amd his money...thanks for the info SW

i think they are to. but just as i wouldnt go ripping down teh dragstrip in a 69 shelby GT500KR worth half a mill, i wouldnt go grouse hunting with a 50,000$ shotgun either. they are more about what limit can i go to in turning a gun into a piece of artwork.

i tend to break it down a little like this: "thats 50 ar's". i'd much rather have 50 of those just for the hell of it lol...


or 50 + other guns. even if i won the lottery i wouldnt buy ANY gun that cost that much.

You have to think of a gun like that as an investment in art, it's like a painting or sculpture by a well known artist. I would love to be able to own a gun like that.

in that case i wouldnt buy a piece of art for that either ;). unless it was a well decorated house with land and a car... come on people that is rediculously over priced. but hey in this time of wealth and riches if thats what you feel you should be spending your money on then DO IT. but dont ask me to feed ya off the dollar menu when you cant even afford that afterward ;). to me a gun has to fulfill a purpose, and that gun doesnt do it in any way shape or form. my browning b-80 to me LOOKS better costs less and performs any service that gun could do. thats all the art i need

The following diatribe is directed only at a very few. Those of your who are adults, please, forgive...

Class envy seems to be rearing its ugly head here. FWIW, I can't afford this magnificent firearm either, but I look at it and say "Wow! That's really neat! It's great that someone has the skill to do that!"

But then there are those who gripe that, since they can't afford luxuries like this, those who can (and I'm definitely not in this number) must be corrupt/greedy/nasty. Can we grow up, please?

Thanks for your attention.

I'm sure you weren't directing that at me farmkid so don't think i'm responding because I think you were.I don't know alot about firearm making..I know how to use them clean them etc. I know ths is a presentation piece from SW helpful answer. I can see that there is skill involved and it is beautiful indeed. However in one post I said it was gratuitous ego stroking..why did I say that? Because even though I don't know much about this craft I do know alot about art. I think the proper place for works of a Master Artisan are museums, be they public or privately funded . To purchase a Monet or a Renoir a Degas a Dali and then hang it in a small room where you and only a few people you choose to see it is for your ego not the love of art. Same with this gun it should be in a firearms museum where many could enjoy it.

thank you for your attention.
