Pricing question

What would be a reasonable price a gunsmith should charge for making a mauser sporter minus the stock: new match barrel, bedding, new 3-position safety, polish metal, scope rings and rust-reblue all parts? Ballpark estimate is all I need (as I know where the limit goes), thanks!

That'd be a good trick, right there.

They are about as reasonable as I've seen.

Probably be the usual commercial hot bluing, though. Rust bluing takes a week and is very labor intensive by comparison.
