Sounds a bit steep for me at this point. Let's see what a basic one will cost but I'm guessing still north of $500.
I heard something about that build being $800.

Despite what it might seem, they don't make a ton of profit from their brass guns, being rather labor-intensive. I think he's trying to make a modular platform to help streamline the process.

you would buy this because working out in a gym is purely over rated! especially when you could be lifting a brass PPS sniper and shooting fools with it and getting your rage on all at the same time

I've been planning to ask for something close to this for some time... Time to accumulate funds.
