Honestly, I woulda' tipped 'im an extra $10 on toppa' that. Be happy! :smile:
10$ didn't even pay a portion of his knowledge or time. So many GS's wouldn't even waste their time doing something that trivial without charging a minimum of one hour. I would bet he did it because the GS was in a similar situation and someone helped him out in the past. Congrats PP, it was your lucky day.You don't pay a gunsmith or any other expert for his labor. You pay him for his knowledge.
I'm not paying for my doctors Porsche, he drives a new one of theseWell, it woulda' cost you $80-$120 minimum just to walk through the door of any doctor's office and there, you're not paying for his tools, experience or knowledge...:dry:...just his Porsche.
Around my area, there are no gunsmiths left except me, and with the economy around here this time of year
it is hard to find a reasonable balance in rate per hour................
Generally I will charge anywhere from $20.00 to $50.00 an hour depending on the mood I am in, and what the
customer is needing done....................
