Lets be realistic! If you got into contenders in the late 80's into the 90's, it was possible to go to a gun show and find barrels for $75 and frames for $135.
compared to today's prices It was a very sound investment.

In the last couple years your lucky to see a single contender at a gun show table unless it has a couple barrels and priced between $500 to 900.
The most expensive one I ever bought was $325 for a brand new 14" 223 at an auction for a gun store that went out of business.

Thats why I ended up with 7 contenders, 26 barrels, an encore that now has a 7mm mag rifle barrel.
