Default Cheapo guns aren't cheap anymore

The days of ordering a Mauser barrel for a custom gun has just gone nuts. Adams and Bennett has gone out of business which leaves a huge hole in the availability of custom Mauser barrels. I just got off the phone with Mark Skaggs(my Smith) in Grants Pass Oregon. He says his Mauser business is all but gone. I have one Zavodi double set trigger action left and will probably build my last sporter. E R Shaw has the best prices , however the barrel will be $210 plus shipping.

So I am considering the 280 Ackley Improved for my more than likely, last custom. Your input greatly appreciated.
