    Custom Guns

    I'm thinking about having a gun worked on, probably to the tune of $2,000 or so.. It will be nice when it's finished and it will be what I want, but my question is..if you sell one of these things, do you ever get your money back?

    Would you buy a gun that had been heavily reworked?

    Depends on what kind of gun it is and what kind of work you have done. Custom revolvers and 1911s seem to be pretty easy to get your money back on especialy if you go to an established customizer. (Cylinder & Slide, Novak, etc.) When you go in to the less classic guns like Glock Sig etc Im sure it would be a little harder to break even.

    Probably not. Someone else's dream gun is not going to be mine.

    I'm looking at Cylinder & Slide and the PPK/S in my avatar. The current grips are Hogue cocobolo.. I'm thinking of going with something more exotic in their place..along with an alligator holster and belt.

    C&S is known for their work on Browning HP and 1911s mainly. The PPK/s has a very selected crowd. People either love them or hate them. I am absoulutely sure that whatever work you have Bill Laughridge do to your gun it will be of the highest quality, and you wont be disappointed. Just doubting there are a lot ofpeople looking for tricked out .380s. The gator rig and nice grips will make it a treat for you to carry, but may not translate to other gun buyers. You just have to know that going in.

    Typically you never get you money back in full. I tend to run from "custom" guns as I have seen quite a few problems over the years.

    Thanks. You pretty much gave me the answer I was looking for. It's pretty much just for me and my taste. I'm thinking about a nephew that will probably inherit the thing somewhere down the road.

    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    Rock if you plan on passing the gun down I personally would keep it in present condition as long as it functions safely. Your nephew may appreciate the wear on it more than having a bright shiny refinished gun. A gun showing character is a gun meant to be handed down. Especially if it may be for him to use as a tool of SD.

    That $2k can get you a custom gun made the way you want it or dang near it. If it's done to your specs and you enjoy it, there can't be a value placed on it.
