Three Yellow Dogs:

Base gun is $12.4k

Titanium receiver is $1.7k

Adjustable rib is $500

Turkish Walnut is $3k or more

Gold plating of the receiver is $500

Americase is $350

If the gun is "Like New" as stated and you like the wood, this is a helluva buy at $15k, as it prices out at over $18k.

I was very pleased with the dealings I had with Great Lakes...I got a good deal on an excellent gun and it got to me the next day....they must have had it out the door before I got off the phone with them....

@pdq - Three Yellow Dogs asked the question, what makes it worth(valued) at $15k. Not the actual price of the components - why is the base gun $12k? will it last forever, is there a lifetime warranty, can i shoot 500 rounds a day, every day and it'll always go bang, or is it supply/demand?

Three Yellow Dogs,

I have always like the Seitz, great gun very well made. But, there are a lot of other guns out there that give you more for your dollar. I never could bring myself to pay that much for a single barrel. Is it worth $12k? Well it must be because a lot of people have bought them. Do they cost that much to make? I don't know. As long as there is a market for an item then the price will not change. That is why I really like to see these new companies like CG and Blaser really become direct competitors to Perazzi, Krieghoff, Kolar, etc. and still sell their items a lot lower than the rest. Time will tell.

at the end of the day, it's what you shoot that fits, feels comfortable and breaks targets that counts, regardless of the price.

When considering a new gun, I narrowed my choice to either a Kreighoff or Silver Seitz as both are 90 minutes from my home and I wanted to deal with the manufacturer personally. I chose the Silver Seitz for the same reason anyone should, i.e. I tried shooting the two and I liked the SS better. And, when I swtiched to the SS from my previous gun, instead of my scores dipping which often happens when you change guns, my scores went up.

I'm also a fanatic about reliability, and IMO the SS is a more durable gun. Not knocking the K's as they are extremely good, I just think the SS's are better. Simpler mechanical design, extremely fast lock time, terrific trigger feel, and above average build quality. Whereas most makers start the receiver as a block of steel, SS starts with a block of stainless steel, then machines it, then heat treats it for hardness, then coats any bearing surface with titanium. I guess you could wear these guns out, but how you'd do it escapes me.

The reality is that you aren't going to see them as frequently as others. While K produces large numbers of guns, SS produces only about 50 - 100 a year, often custom order. Given they are located north of Baltimore, you'll see many if you attend the MD state shoot or others of surrounding states, but otherwise they aren't a dime a dozen on the gun rack.

But, to my original comment, try a number of guns. If you find you break more targets with a Remington 870 pump, stay with that. It's all in what works for you.

Pete
