I was being facetious of course. I started out building M14's with very little to work with. At first I had to have the barrels installed by someone who knew more about it than I did, but it was a learning experience and I did learn over time. I also collected a fine bunch of tools and gages. Over the 45 years I've been doing this I'm sure I have spent at least $50,000 just on the T&G stuff dedicated to the M1, M14, Carbine, and AR15. I may have twice that in parts. It's not something most can put together in one short period. As I get closer to full retirement, I'm wondering who might be able to do that. I have a good source.
I started inventorying for insurance one time, I stopped at a point because it would have been to price prohibitive to insure and I was way north of your number. Tools ain't cheap
