I'd want a custom build by Rogers Precision out of Arizona.

I'd call Terry Tussey and tell him to let his imagination run wild...

Wow, that would take a lot of thought and planning but it would be built at either Rogers Precision or Christensen Arms.

I agree it is thought provoking. Have you ever heard of Luke Volkmann. He owns Volkmann Precision. He is the only employee. You call Volkmann Precision you talk to Luke. He personally hand makes every gun. Takes 11-12 mo. to build. Here is the Signature Series.

For now I am going to hold on to my check and continue to shop.

What does a 11-12 month pistol build cost? I'm thinking it's got to be over $10K, but really I have no idea.
